Don't have any at the moment, but 20 are out there in testing now. Will expand that by another 10 or so next week.

No, it's setup for one or the other. But I can't say I'd suggest trying to NLS or 2step with nitrous involved.

Terry 5/23 is absolutely amazing. I run map 3 99% of the time and put a mix of 50/50 98RON/E85 in the tank the other day and map 5 is now more aggressive than map 2.
Map 5 is my new rainy day map.

Upgraded this thread to sticky status. At some point in the future I'll start posting G5 specific firmware and notes in the first post. Those who are testing the G5 board, the interface will not yet block you from uploading G4 firmware. And if you do the car will throw lambda, crank position, and other various codes. So make sure to only upload G5 specific firmware.

Will the max cool mode help lower oil temperatures at all? Or just coolant temps? Got the dreaded limp mode today at the track. :-/

You'd have to check the specific code to see whether it was a water or oil temp limp. But it helps with both.

I never actually got a code. The oil temp gauge was reading around 270-280 though and the exterior temperature was around 103 today. Power kept going in and out. Part of the lap I would have full power, then all of my power would go away, then eventually the power would come back on, then shut off again.

Ah, yeah that is just the JB4 then cutting power on you to keep it from going in to an actual limp code.

Is it possible for that the JB4 to "flutter" the power on and off or is that something else again?

I had that happen to me recently at a Laguna Seca track day.

No codes or CELs though.


Cool stuff no longer installed.

We don't get people riding at 280 degrees often, but the logic right now might be too sharp of a transition. E.g. it goes from full boost to stock boost from 280->284 degrees. Maybe it could be smoothed out to 270->290, etc. But either way I think its time for you to consider some cooling mods.

I was hoping Meth would do that.

I guess a larger IC is the next step.

Has anyone just purchased a new core and installed a larger oil cooler. I'm not sure what size lines run to the oil cooler but I piece together a Setrab 25 row for my 370z that lowered temps 40 degrees. I was thinking about doing the same with my 135. I used a thermostatic sandwich plate for the Z tho I'm assuming I'd have to make do with the stock lines.

Max cool will only help so much. Most likely won't stop limp mode on a track ...

haha, for sure T. Wasn't trying to use them both at the same time. Just have them hooked up at the same time. use the NLS/2 step when I wasn't using NOS. I'm still on the fence with the NOS though so I'll be trying the 2 step/NLS for sure.

Default ? About DTC at start-up - 06-04-2012, 02:18 PM

Hey Terry,

When 5/5 is selected, should my one button push DTC dash light show? I've tried to toggle multiple times, and it never activates the dash light. I've always selected this when the vehicle is running so do I have to activate it when the engine isn't running?

NM - Just went through the old release notes and see that it isn't compatible with xDrive. Any chance that it will ever be compatible?
