Hey Terry,

for the BMS stage 1 tune, is it possible to release two versions of the firmware? One would be the original firmware, the second being a set boost limited version in which 1st-3rd gear psi would be limited to improve traction and performance? Please let us know if its possible, thanks!

Stage1 can't read gear so that won't be possible. Upgrade to a JB4 if you want that critical function.

Just shove it around the clutch grommet.

I pushed a hanger through/around the clutch line grommet (careful not to nick the hose), taped the cable to the hanger in the footwell (silicone tape), and pulled the cable back through.

This is the same procedure I used for the USB cable, and it (mostly) preserves the seal the grommet provides.

Hey Terry, I have ~e30 mix in the tank right now. I did a few runs last night on Map 7 and it broke up pretty bad in the last 1k or so of RPMs in the last few gears. Tried it 2x back to back and it was the same. I plan on logging tonight, what should I be logging?

JB4 with all the hook ups with ********* and intake filters with carbon filter removed.

Most likely lack of fuel pressure. That can happen when it's cooler and your on E30.

Map 7 is not always going to work on E85. But one thing I've been testing lately is a higher open loop setting. Try a setting of 70 and lets see if that helps.

The JB4 CSV log contains all data so that is a good idea as well.

Found a little bug on map6 and maybe map7 on the S55 OBDII firmware. If anyone is running either drop me a note for an update to test.

Terry does the halo max brightness only work with LED headlights? If so, can't it also work with the regular xenon headlights?

LED only for that specific function. I think the zenon are limited by the voltages rather than the LEDs which are computer controlled.

Yes, and we've also got the new aluminum enclosure.

I just connected mine and when in the mode for 1-3rd gear boost reduction, it doesn't align with the rpm numbers. For example, when I'm in 1st gear boost reduction (Mode 5) I have it set for 8 psi reduction but the rpm reads 2.5 and 2nd gear (mode 6) I have it set for 5 psi but it reads 1.5 rpm. I connected it to my laptop to confirm the boost reduction numbers. Is this normal because according to the video it should align up and it should read 8 rpm and 5 rpm.

Also, when in the mode how do you lower the psi. If I'm at 8psi first gear, how do i go down to 5psi?

Thanks

I love the new OBD connector but couldnt you setup a different button for valve control. Its pretty clunky having BC control both the menu system plus the valves. Also annoying cycling back through to get to the metric I want to see. Like the 3rd homelink key would be awesome.

Also is there a way to make the valves always start in OEM like before? Mine are just doing last position.

Yes we may adjust that. I think the in dash is around 1/3 of the boost reading for those settings. So 2.5 would be around 8.3psi. That's a very low limit though as the system won't target below stock. I'd go with say 15psi in 1st gear. 18psi in 2nd.

I filled up with 94 octane and put it on map 2 (have DP's too). Noticed the 1st gear was very jerky. Would I need to post logs or am i missing something ?
