That was it. Cleared out the old values and we're back in business

Thanks for the quick response George!

So I'm all up and running - wowwowow, what a difference!! Incredible difference from stock and silky smooth, too.

Quick question on protecting the wiring - other than using zip ties to tidy up the wiring, has anyone used heat protective sleeves to protect some/all of the JB4 wiring?

I live in AZ, so it already gets toasty under there as it is!

Thanks

New JB4 owner/user here,

Based on the "model specific" mention on your latest firmware Map notes,
Map 3 Peak boost 6psi 93AKI/98Ron recommended
Map 4 Peak boost 6psi (Golf R and Audi S3 7speed DSG specific)

which Maps apply to the following:

2019 GTI Rabbit Edition, DSG
93, Texas heat,
just a K&N panel filter mod wise
(currently Map 2)

From what I understand 1, 2, and 6 are still my Map options based on the latest note specifics.

Confusion aside, amazing product!
Buying another for my wife's car very soon.

Thanks,
Farrell

Hi,

If you using the app update it from this link and lets see what the faults are. The one app version that reads P codes has a issue with faults it shows. https://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58492

Map 3 will run well on your car even in the Texas heat.

Its not on the priority list. We will look in to it in the future but the ECU makes so many adjustments as is that over the ready maps there isnt major value in it.

Hey George, I was trying to log yesterday and was connected for about 10 mins with the data cable and had full Gauges in the app, but when I returned to the car after running into a store for 15 mins and turned the car back on only the map and boost Gauges are working. The afr, ign, rpm etc. Are all 0 now and it also won't read codes anymore. I updated to the latest firmware and still not working. Any ideas? Thank you.

Which car is it? I know George says it's rare, but on my A4 I have to set the Future Use D field to 1 or I get the same symptom.

Try setting FUD to 1, turning off the car, and opening the hood for 3 minutes. Close it, and restart the car, see if you get the OBD signal again.

You are my hero! It worked! I can't thank you enough. I must have changed it by accident when I was adjusting map 6. Huge, huge, thank you.

There is a chance that a bug in the firmware is making the value 0 when you update. Need to check that out.

Map 3 would be perfect. You can run map 5 too with 99Ron but do some logs to evaluate.

Hi,
That was a fast reply
For the log, I just do a 0 - 100km hard pull or standard driving?
Plan on running 94ron.
thanks

Something I've been meaning to ask for a while, when running an absolute map should we set the 6-cyl timing logging to 1? When I used absolute I would never, regardless of gear and load, hit the boot targets set, switched to additive and it hits target 100% of the time?

Just a curiosity thing, although when I've got the meth installed I may switch back to absolute!

Setting it to 1 is only needed if you adding more than 9psi over stock. It removes that nanny.
