I'm sure my sat-nav has been spreading rumours about the footwell module. Can the JB4 confirm?

Terry, is the JB4 capable of determining how much boost the DME is looking for, and feeding that value back to the DME, independent of actual boost?

Sure. But it isn't setup to run the wastegates directly full time. So we only plan to use that trick in special cases like during manual transmission WOT shifts where we're watching everything and give the OK to hang the throttle open during the shift.

My idea was to run a single turbo but one w/ an internal wastegate and the OEM vacuum actuator to avoid a tuning nightmare. However, I was thinking that with a single turbo (or bigger twins) the DME would need to see boost down low, but might throw a CEL if there is too much turbo lag.

For single turbo you'd need our PRO board, which can run the solenoids (or a new one) completely independently of the OEM setup.

Don't have one. Plenty of work to go on it and we're busy on JB4 stuff right now.

Good place to post a feature request?

Would be great to be able to autoclear just the ******** codes but not all engine codes. I'm assuming autoclear does the latter.

Thanks!

Up to you but I'd suggest removing it. Fewer changes for headaches later.

Code deletion is an all or nothing deal. But if you throw a non-*** code you'll get a check engine light and can disable auto clear at that point. You can even read the code through the dash if you want.

Gona start playing with some features tommrrow within the JB4 interface.. Very intersted in the first and second gear boost redux features.

So to get the understanding of how this feature works.. I am running Map2 on 93octane. I enter lets say 5 into the 1st gear redux, and it will subtract 5 psi from lets say the targeted boost?

The attached file on the first post:
File Type: hex CAN_010111C.HEX (71.1 KB, 107 views)
Is that the lastest firmware update? was that preloaded on the beta batch that shipped out on the 16th?
I haven't updated anything yet.

Yes that is the latest public firmware update. If your not sure just plug your computer into the JB and the interface will tell you what firmware is loaded and interface version you are using.

Once your PC is connected to the JB4, go to the 'User Adjustment' tab in the JB4 software...

There you will see the current FW version and interface version that you currently have...

I got my JB4 today and installed in the car. Question though, when you are on the settings page I tried to read the DME codes if it had any and got a read failed. Is the car supposed to have ignition on and NOT running or did I just miss something??

Also, when I tried to do it off the gauges, I got 2 flashes and then 4flashes and it came out of command mode by itself. Is this normal?

Thanks for the help in advance

Code reading via laptop only works with 1/1 and later firmware. 2 dashes with 4 dashes means no codes stored.

You need to type 50, not 5 for a 5psi reduction. Scaling is 0-100...just remember, it will not go lower than stock boost no matter how high you put the gear redux. Enjoy!

+1. Also, in the next update that changes to a boost cap per gear. And you enter say 10.0 for maximum 10psi in 1st gear, etc.
