Question regarding the DP fix integrated with the JB4. Would it affect anything if the car is running cats or is there a disable for it? Would probably run without cats eventually but for now I have stock cats.

Thanks.

as far as i know, the dp fix just clears the codes that pop up. doesn't alter any signals.

About that...is that normal? That needle does not move off 160 forever. And I have to take it easy on the engine until it does. Which takes A LOT of restrain.

Great to hear! I saw post 1 and saw config gauges only for the 135 and 335.

Uploaded 1.11.11 this afternoon and tested the coding reading feature. It seems to be working fine. Unfortunately it told me my Service light is the result of a 2FBF fault code.

A couple of weeks ago I think but I honestly don't have any of the normal issues such as misfires or long cranks. I was thinking of clearing it and see if it comes back. I'm still on my original hfpf, but I only have 27K miles.

seems to reach operating temp faster in city/stop-and-go traffic.

I dont really drive my car in the winter, cause i dont drive it in the snow or salt, however when i do drive it, it takes a good 10-15 min of normal driving to get past 160. 30 degree weather.


If I let it idle, it takes about 30 minutes.

This is regardless of tune, so its not tune related.

If you throw some boost at it, say 4 to 5 psi during normal driving, it naturally warms up quicker.

Oh I'll update that, 535i uses 335i mode.

Thinking about the oil temp and the warm up times brings me to two questions for Master Terry. One, is there a way to hijack digital gauges to show oil temp? that way it will be more precise and actually tell us how oil is doing between 0 and 160 during the warm up? Two, I love the transport mode option, but would it be possible to add another level of flexibility to adjust the cut off RPM? I don't want a wallet guy cold starting my car and revving it up to 4500 to warm it up faster (seen it happen and some of them actually think it's cool to deliver a car nice and warm for a customer for a higher tip). I never rev past 3K before I leave my subdivision and I don't want anyone else to do it either (call me selfish). Anyone else cares for those options?

I never meant to imply it was tune related. The car always took forever to warm up. And I am storing mine for the winter as well. But after I installed a JB4, I had to take it out for a drive!!!

On the parameter Air/Fuel additive, will greater numbers increase or decrease the fuel enrichment?

Based on some recent logs my car is running kinda lean, sometime even 15:1, and i'm getting some timing dropouts even on a 9psi map6. It may be bad gas, and my fuel pressure is looking strange so my hpfp my be dying.

If anyone can explain this parameter it would really help out!

The in dash gauges are great. Cheat-sheet is on the first page to play with them.

Higher is richer..... lower A/F ratio. Send terry some .csv logs to look at since these also have HPFP pressure information also. Not sure the A/F ratio trend is fully calibrated or not but the timing indication is correct.

Higher air/fuel setting richens the mixture. But the AFR reading is from the stock sensors and does not yet add in the fuel enrichment the JB4 is doing. It's just there as a reference.

Can't wait to see the "Actual A/F" value finished!

I noticed the fuel enrichment logging variable. Does this relate to how much extra duty cycle is being put on the fuel injectors? I would like to see better timing on 93 pump, would the extra fuel at a value of 70 or so be detrimental in any way?

I don't mind running a 11.5:1 to 12.5:1 Air/Fuel ratio for 12-14 psi.

Comment for the Gauge Hijacking-

I would like to see the gauges remain hijacked after the first > 80 % throttle event and re-set after the car is shut down/started again.

My view point is this- It's nice to see the fuel level and oil temp when first driving the car, once the car is up to operating temp, I really have no need for the oil gauge nor the fuel gauge at this point and now it's time for gauge hijacking and monitoring other things (boost,IAT's, etc).....

Just leave option 5 - 6 on until car is warm then toggle it off
