Now @terry, would you think it's possible to try out +5 boost safety on an rs400? I wouldn't be running it like this all the time, just curious as to see how it reacts ��

Another question. I don't need to connect the Tuner to the car in order for me to be able to upgrade the firmware correct? I can just connect laptop to cable to tuner and do it right on my desk. Still waiting on my car from the dealer

I appreciate your directness and honesty. After considering your statement I have to conclude that I am not prepared to pay for damage that I may cause in my quest for more power.

I love to lease because I want to never worry about paying the repair costs for these expensive cars. I was recently in a car accident with my previous Q50 Hybrid, not my fault, and had my front bumper removed from my car. That repair was $16,000. I can only image what the cost of repairing these new VR engines would be.

I have done research on your brand and have seen nothing but high marks and reviews from your customers. I have no doubt your product for the Q50 is great and wish my financial situation was a bit different so I could enjoy the benefits and not worry about any, however unlikely, consequences.

The turbos are a limiting factor around 420whp. But I have no doubt hybrids will spring up for the platform for the hard-core guys. And I want to make sure we have easy to install and safe WMI kits ready go to for them.

No problem. Keep in mind this thread is not for "do I want to modify my car" discussions.... It's for people who have decided to modify and want more information on the BMS Stage1 tuner. We'll be cleaning out the off topic posts at some point.

@Terry, I appreciate your answering the seemingly endless questions that have only the slightest tweak from those you have answered previously. I see that as a commitment to your customer's satisfaction with your product. Every time I think I have emptied the well of useful info, I learn something new from the Q&A's. Thanks for a healthy discussion about what is and what may not be a good idea. I still do not have a good answer about how well the ***** I ordered from Fast Intentions will work with your product, but hope to learn more from the experience of others. We ALL learn from experience. It is usually cheaper to learn from the experience of others. Thanks for the forum to do so.

Looking forward to checking their technical data when released. If it lowers intake temps and reduces restriction, maybe.

I've updated to the latest firmware ad played with both 30 and 36. I can't notice a difference lol. Should the higher number lesson the tendency to want to up shift to soon with partial throttle? I'm running +6 on 94 octane (Silver Sport)

Yes, and in my car 45 is the number that I have and works great. I didn't try 40 though so not sure how it will feel with that.

Excellent thank you. How does 45 affect the power?

I have the 45 setting for over 3 weeks now and haven't notice any change in power. The only noticeable change was going back to stock-alike smooth acceleration under low throttle situations and no early shifting. I read some users having it at 30 and working great but in my case 30 showed the same symptoms as 0. I guess it varies from car to car and their respective setups/mods. I want to try 40 but I hadn't have a chance yet. I don't have the Bluetooth connector so I have to make changes with the laptop.

Finally got my car back from the dealer and installed and updated firmware.
Now a few things I noticed that are sparking questions in my head so I know how exactly how this works and not overboost my car.

a) When in Map1 the boost safety field reads 0. Is it understood that by default in Map1, even though this field reads 0, that it is defaulting at 3psi? No where else does it say 3 psi. Is this statement all correct?

b) If I change it to Map 3 and change Boost Safety to 4 (Red sport) that I will be adding 4psi total OVER whatever stock is, correct?

c) Also when changing from Map 3 with Boost safety at 4, back to Map 1, the Boost safety field keeps the number 4 in the Boost Safety field even though Map1 is selected. Do I have to 0 out this field when back to Map1? I wouldn't think so if map1 is a whole different selection.

Thanks.

a) The boost target shown on the user adjustment page only applies to map3.
b) A peak of 4psi over stock, at lower engine speed and throttle position, less than 4psi, obviously.
c) You can move between maps freely and the map3 setting will remain saved.

Hey Terry another video posted by Visconti Tuning against your product lol, i don't know if they get that the Stage 1is a cheaper way to boost your car without voiding warranty or maybe their just trying to advertise their product against yours to get more people to realize you get better performance with ecutek. I really hope you guys will go for the jb4 on this car especially that this an adorable car that you see everywhere compared to BMW which is a much much higher class and more expensive. Trust me I would love to have a M3/M4/M5 but no way i can afford that lol

Is anyone running a RS with 4psi and Wastegate set at 40? Looking to boost performance from 3psi and smoothing out the power.

I have little interest in what that company is doing to market themselves. For those who want flash tuning there are much better and more professional EcuTek tuners out there. I'd suggest Seb over at Specialty Z.

Just adjusted boost safety 4.0 and wastegate at 35. Running 93 octane. Pulls hard and pretty smooth. Maybe a wastegate setting of 40 would make it a little smoother?

Quick update: JB1 installed on 7/10 - upgraded the install with the BT Kit on 8/5. I have been running an E30 fuel blend (1:4 ratio of E85 and 93 octane.) I'm still running with the "beta" firmware since 8/8. Countless test runs - various ambient temps (North Texas) & I have zeroed in on my RWD SS's favorite settings. Boost Safety - 7.2 / DWP 38. If I have to temporarily run only 93 octane fuel (road trips in TX) I back off the Boost Safety to 6 - via my iPhone thanks to the JB4 app and BT Kit. The performance is amazing - just took yet another RS (his jaw just dropped at the next light.) He asked what I had done to my SS and I replied - JB1 baby!

Now for those BMS Intakes - any photos yet?!?
