Default New 2021 F-150 Ecoboost about to get a JB4 upgrade!! - 03-21-2021, 01:58 PM

I'm so PUMPED!!! Now with the new 2021 the 3.5-liter EcoBoost it produces 400 horsepower (up 25) and 500 lb-ft of torque (up 30) compared to the previous generation. I can't wait to get my JB4 in this week! Not sure what gains to expect but I imagine they will be sick!

Will be really interesting to get one on the dyno and see if the gains are paper gains or real gains. We've noticed a trend to under report factory power on some of the EcoBoost models.

Maybe the 4 pin connector is rotated and not plugged in properly? i also have a 2018 Raptor...no issues over the last 3 years of running the JB4 on it.

Default Still need to get oil pressure - 07-16-2021, 10:12 AM

Terry,

I'm still really hoping you'll be able to add the oil pressure to your readout since its only an idiot light on ALL F150 Ecoboost's since they have a variable oil pump and didn't want to get people worried about watching the oil pressure change rapidly with rpm.

I know it can be done, since my previous OBD2 software (OBDLink) was showing me the oil pressure.

I'm sure this is also what all the other F150 and Raptor guys would also like to see, since none of us can actually see the oil pressure after adding boost and all the other modifications we've made.

Please let me know if you'll be able to do this soon... hopefully.

Thanks you so much!

PS. I love the JB4 and my water/methanol injection system which continues to perform flawlessly daily on stage 5.

Just picked up the JB4 for my 2017 explorer 3.5 Ecoboost. Iíve been running one on my E92 N54 for years and always thought itís a great device.

I completed the install and am running map 2, immediate power increase. I am teaching my son to drag race and letting him use this as a good starter. Up here at altitude it was running 15.3@90-91 stock and now with just map 2 itís running 14.5-14.6@96-97.

Yesterday was our first time to the track with the JB4. He only had 2 test runs and was running a bracket class so consistency was what would be most important. We ran 100 octane unleaded, ran map 2 for the first test run and then turned it right to map 7 for the second test. His 2 times were almost identical between the two maps. We switched back to map 2 and decided to dial in for the class at that for now.

Our plan is to hit a test and tune and start playing with the other maps, that said why wouldnít we see any increase on map 7? My BMW is noticeably faster on map 7 then map 2.

On another note we did also notice if we use the paddle shifters in sport mode if the shift is delayed at all near redline the map defaults back to map 0, doesnít happen when we let the transmission shift itself though.

Default Raptor 3.5 Cam Phaser Update - 09-13-2021, 01:33 PM

Just curious, is there anything I should be concerned about after receiving the cam phaser reprogram update to my truck and the JB4? I think the concern is more related to flash tunes, but wanted to be sure.

Thanks

We haven't had anything reported, and had no issues with our updated Raptor. Let me know if any problems crop up for you.

Correct...if you have a flash, that would be an issue and should not go in for the CAM phaser update with a flash or the JB4 for that matter.

Once the update is completed, re-install your JB4 and/or flash.

Yes that is exactly what I did with the JB4. Since reinstalling I saw it defaulted to Map 0. Then I said before I change maps, let me verify things are ok on your side.

On a side note, since hearing Gen 3 Raptor's and Gen14 F-150's have encrypted PCM's and have not been cracked as of yet. What does the situation look like for piggybacks at this time?

We've been doing 2021+ models all year, no issues at all. Normally the ECU locking mechanisms don't impact how we tune and aren't an issue. The F150 changes look to be no exception from that.

I'm coming from a Stinger to a 2018 Ford Flex. I keep looking on the site for compatibility but don't see anything. Do I just need to email in pics of my MAP sensor, to figure out which one I need?

You check the sensors on your vehicle against the photos we have posted on the order page. It's probably v2 harness. You can post or email your sensor photos if you want me to confirm for you.

Just making sure, that's on the F150 order page or the Explorer page? I think it used to mention Flex compatibility, but there's no mention of it anymore. I have two Version 1 sensors. Thanks

Hello everyone, does anyone know what clip I would need for the proper connection to a JB4 to my 2018 F150 2,7 liter?

Thanks,

I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you trying to retro fit another JB4 not meant for the 2.7?

No, I bought JB4 of FB marketplace that was on 2017 Rapture. They both have V2 connectors. Just wanted to make sure my truck had the same connector.
