Anybody know if there are plans to make a JB4 that fits the new 2018 RS3/TTRS 2.5L 5 cyl Turbo?

Thanks!

Yes, George has one for development we've been working on and a local customer also purchased one we'll be testing on next week.

Soon as you guys have something in-hand, i'll post over in the 'mods' section at Audizine and get some traction going. Would *love* to see this come to fruition...

Really don't want a full tune, but would like to help "wake it up" a bit if possible...

Thanks for the quick updates!

Yes, the development is being done in concurance with the Audi S4 we have since the two cars share the same tech. We expect the unit to be ready some time in April.

Agreed - I had the JBD on my 335D and missed it with the B8 S4 - would love to get a BMS on my RS3!

Also - if you're going to get an RS3, check up on the braking issues that it has before you get it rolling too fast...

Its being worked on. There is a glitch with the software that runs the circuit board which is shared with the Audi S4/5. Once we iron that out we can continue with development. We have the car so its something we definitely going to release.

Woohoo! I’ve got a break coming after my next track day (I’m skipping the month of August because of “too damn hot”), so I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to have this installed prior to the September event.

Been about a month - Noticed that you've got the S4 testing rolling along quite nicely aside from the IAT bug.

Not sure if running a beta unit on an RS3 would help, but I do run a bit of miles and ran run the computer logging at the same time.

It seems the IAT issue might have been sorted. I am away from our RS3 till the end of the month so will test it on the RS3 and if all is good will start rolling out testers there after.

Hi Bud
Please enlighten me on the braking issues.
Is there instability on braking at high speed?

Btw George , Looking forward to see the JB effect of the RS3 👍

Audi sales people should tell us , well maybe just maybe they will kindly reset it.
Did VWSA confirm the 200 limit?
Do you know what the skunk was talking about wrt braking issues?

Dont know about the brakes. I know the 370hp had a issue of some kind.

Easiest way around the launch limit is a DSG flash. And by easiest, I mean the only
