The X1 uses the same wheel guide as the N55 E Series JB4 as it's technically an E series model.

Hi terry

Not sure if below has been asked..

I'm driving f30 320i. I have Ron 95 and Ron 97 in my country.

For jb4 (stage 2), Advisable to use only map5 on my 320i or can I use map1 and 2 if I pump ron97 all the time.

My only mods Are muffler-delete.
I don't plan to change my dp at the moment.

Cheers

Hi, I have two questions for Jb4
1) I set the FF adaptation 80, but after a few days, she gets off
is this normal? that can happen?



2) Some people do 320i to 328i changing power class, it is safe to be used in conjunction with this JB4? and on any map?

FF will adjust itself as needed. Flashing to the 328i software is fine if you have access to it. Then use the 328i map guidelines. e.g. map 1.

Haven't really noticed, but saw the following codes today from the jb4:

104401 MAP sensor, intake pipe, electrical : Short circuit to B+

Any concern on this? Car feels totally fine....

Only changes to the car was the removal of the OCC (which shouldn't have any effect) and installing of the ER chargepipe...

If it comes back after deleting you may have some wiring issue.

Removed the jb4 and the codes are gone. Probably something wrong with the harness. Gotta blame the guy who installed my Er charge pipe. Must have tugged something loose.

Do u sell just the harness alone?

Yes but it's not cheap. $250 plus core.

Hey Terry I have a 2012 328i and BMS Stage2 JB4 installed with no other modifications. When I check my DME code there is a CDA904 but it seems ok with my car since no caution light is on. After deleting it the CDA904 will come back again if I restart the engine, can you please tell me what does CDA904 mean?

No idea on that one. Read it with a BT cable to get a description. Probably not tuning related.

The install guide covers how to determine if you are EWG or not. If blue harness is connected you are not EWG.

Map 6: User definable map. Suggested for troubleshooting by professionals only.
Map 7: Race gas map. Peak boost 23psi. This is a fairly aggressive map and increases engine damage risk. Use with caution.

4) There exists a Stage1 simulation within the JB4 firmware. To enable set CPS1500 to 30 for +3psi or 40 for +4psi. If CPS1500 is set greater than 0 map 1 will then mimic Stage1 tuning.
I have a question on this stage 1 simulation - would you suggest that this is "safer" than map 1 due to milder adjustments, or less safe because of fewer parameters being monitored? If I want to get my feet wet and stay relatively conservative for a time before going to JB4-map1 does it make sense to simulate stage 1, or am I doing my motor a disservice?

There is no safety difference. If you want something milder than map 1 running say +4psi using the S1 simulation will get you that.

I a about to purchase a tune for my 2014 320i and am debating between the jb4 and the stage 1.
how big of a difference is the stage1 compared to map5 (320i exclusive) in the jb4?
thanks in advance

The JB4 is a stronger tune especially so with the 320i. But it's also more work to install. Maybe start with the Stage1 and then upgrade to the JB4 when bored.

Proposition to the N20 guys:

Free N20 RB Upgraded Hybrid Turbo for someone to test out. Must be FBO and willing to push the turbo and tuning to see what can be attained power wise. Dyno minimum requirements but some drag racing is appreciated as well (not sure if there is much to compare with OEM Turbo traps?).

Preferably someone who understands how to tune the JB4 with support of Terry. Must be willing to pay for install (or install themselves) and get installed and tested with reasonable quickness. Must be willing to pay core charge in advance but would be refunded in full when you send back your original turbo to us. And by the way we have no idea on gains, this is what you are here for is to test the unit and see Turbo available within 2 weeks. There will be one tester and this will be updated when one (if one presents itself) is chosen. No unit will be sold until testing proves beneficial.

Thanks,
Rob

Hi Mata,
FYI I have a JB4 Stage 2 on my 2012 F30 320I and it seriously transforms the car.. Its like having a 328I for a 320 price tag. (I've driven both) Mine has the Pneumatic control and there's a noticeable increase in torque and power. Trouble is you really notice the difference when you take it off for service. And can't wait to put it back

Terry,

Are we ever likely to see the EWG harness released for the N20?

Or has N20 development now totally stopped?

Seems a little (read: very) quiet in here these days...
