It definitely works. Pedal depressed > 50% I can see fuel gauge moving to indicate boost

Any feedback anyone can give me would be appreciated. I already downloaded the JB4 interface onto my laptop...just need some help with values, changes and what to be careful of. Im sure there are tons of threads but this BETA system seems to be a new breed so im looking for a step by step...one thing is the boost limiter on 1st 2nd and 3rd gear, i dont know what the numbers / settings mean or what affect they have on the car

Love the new JB4 BTW.....i cant believe how much torque this thing is putting out. Car runs great and the motor is very happy.

Did a little dyno testing today with our prototype intake and VM's prototype **. Runs were done on 93 octane, no meth flowing, so we could try to get a close to apples to apples comparison of before. I was not able to get a run of just the *** without the intake this go around but previous testing with the intake showed around 7-8whp gains. So the rest is the combination of the ** and slightly more aggressive mapping allowable with the bolt on parts.

For anything specific to your car you'd have to email.

There is really nothing you should change, other than setting the boost cap per gear, if traction is an issue for you. In that case limiting boost to 12psi in 1st and 14psi in 2nd is a good starting point.

Got everything hooked up on my manual 340i and it feels pretty nice so far, definitely more power than stock and it feels like it pulls smoothly most of the time. I'll try to get some logs in the near future but the car drives a lot better than I thought it would for an early beta.

I do feel like the boost takes a little longer to come on in Map 1 compared to stock and there have been a few times at higher RPM that I feel a little hesitation, boost oscillation, or maybe timing being pulled so I'll try to log it soon but definitely no real complaints so far. This is on 91 octane.

Same for me. I also feels like the boost takes longer but pulls harder once it does.

+1 to the above, boost does feel like it's a bit laggier but once it kicks in, the 340 really does take off

Peak torque is shifted up so you'll hit that peak later in the power curve, but at no point does it make less torque than stock. The BETA map1 is pretty mild. We'll crank things up down low further after we've had a chance to study logs over a wider range of climates and fuels.

Just released our B58 intake system. It's machined from a piece of billet and really sharp. It's a more expensive process than using welded aluminum but in this case we thought it more appropriate for the application.

Looks great; already put the order in. Should we keep it on MAP 1 with the added intake or would that only be for the ** install?

Hey guys,

Just as an update for those who missed it, I took our 340i out to ShiftSector over the weekend for some grueling half mile testing. It's equipped with a JB4, BMS intake, and BMS water/meth kit. Otherwise stock. Fuel was 93 octane. For the water/meth it was running an 80% mixture with dial CM5 nozzles.

Best trap speed of the day was 144.8mph which considering the conditions was pretty solid. Ahead of stock turbo N54 times.

For fun I had Ando turn the JB4 off on our stock turbo M4 for a head-to-head. He's got a BMS intake/chargepipes, BMS catback, drag radials, and a little higher octane, but the 340i still smoked him...

Hi Terry
Just reading your post, sounds like a fun time...lol I was up at monticello racetrack this past weekend and was running laps as well. Is there a way to eliminate the speed governor? Apparently my 340 tops out at 130MPH on the straight away....i see you topped out way faster than that.....can we circumvent the top speed limiter by using the JB4?

I am guessing this is the same as the past generations. If that is the case then you need to get the right combination of parts to get the 155mph speed limiter and nobody has figured out how to remove it except for bench flashing.

I installed the intake and JB4 on my 6MT 340xi. Put about 400 miles on the car since the install and everything was great. Just today I received a drive train malfunction. I turned off the car for about 5 minutes and no more issues. Is this something I should be concerned with? Thanks.

We've had several firmware updates recently. Read the fault and email it in to tech support for assistance. If it's a known issue we'll send over the fix.

The speed limiter can't be removed with a piggyback, sorry. Ours is capped at 155mph.
