You just order the JB4 beta upgrade kit on the site and send back the Stage2 along with the Stage2 purchase receipt for the refund. The free upgrade applies to original purchasers only.

Has anyone had any long term issues running Map 2 without other mods? In my Audi Stage 2 required a down pipe, but I have not installed anything for the N63 and have not seen any issues over the last few months (yet.) Anyone in the same shoes? I noticed the dyno was done with just the tune, so I figured it would be ok...

If you need help with BETA firmware you'll have to email in.

I know 90% of USA doesnt use Cruise Control lol, but I actually use it alot, I notice when the JB4 is on, either my CC cuts off after 10 seconds, or worst, I start to get Drivetrain Malfs and chassi stability, the car has to come to a halt and then goes away with just a restart. This is dangerous as hell because usually i'm in the left lane going quick.

However when I turn the JB4 off (map 0) the CC seems to work just fine, havent tested it on long distance tho.

Does anyone else have this issue or similar ?

Not encountered that. Recreate the issue and record it in a JB4 log, uncheck "log WOT only" to log cruise. And read the actual fault codes. Email in the log and the fault codes and we can check it out.

As a test make sure you have disabled auto-clear mode. Menu4 should be set to 0. I could see that interfering with cruise.

Regarding upgraded turbos, will the jb4 be able to utilize the increased abilities? Or does that require a flash type tune?

Normally need both for larger turbos. We'll have to add 3.5bar TMAP support to the JB4 also soon. The factory sensors are limited to around 20psi.

Has anyone seen any long term issues using the beta tune map 2 on an otherwise stock car? Is it better to switch to map 1 without bolt ons? One thing I noticed is a ticking sound under the hood on the driver's side. Maybe it was there before, but was not as noticeable.

Hey Terry,

I have a stage 2 installed right now on my 2012 550xi. I just have a few questions. I'm looking to order the "Full N63 JB4 BETA Kit".

1. How do I go about returning my stage 2 for a credit? What are the steps?(I did purchase it online from your site)

2. Do I just buy the "Full N63 JB4 BETA Kit" and there will be some sort of return label to send my old stage 2 in?

3. Do I need the "BCM module" I never run E85. I usually just run 100 octane unleaded when using max aggressive setting.

Say for instance I only have 91 oct available to me and I'd like to run Stage 2 with the JB4 beta. Few questions:

1. Is there a power difference between old stage 2 and JB4 Beta Stage 2?
a. Is the OBD connection providing a power increase or just more features?

2. With 91 octane, can I run map 2?

3. Anyone hook this up to an X5 yet?

I could maybe throw octane booster in every once in a while but sadly the nearest E85 station to me is 20 miles away. Trying to a get realistic idea on what I can do with 91 oct. Thanks!!

For 91 octane I'd stay on map1, at least to start. We'll have to evaluate map2 on 91 octane.

The JB4+BCM is stronger than the old Stage2.

I'm glad I read this a couple of days ago. Exact same thing happened to me about 80 miles from home today. Turned on the CC and about 30 seconds later "Drivetrain Malfunction" and "Stability Control" popped up.

I pulled over, contemplating switching to 0, but then I remembered that someone else had a similar issue in here. Restarted under map 2, drove the rest of the way home without any issues, and not using CC.

Aside from the JB4 Beta with map 2, I'm totally stock. I've been running it for a week without any issues up until when I turned on CC for the first time.

For the cruise control issue, did you go to menu4 and ensure it's been set to 0?

Terry......what is the stock boost level of the N63? How much can you increase the boost with JB4/BCM on a 91 and E85 mix?

Boost will vary from 8 to 11psi stock, from what I've seen. We've run it as high as 20psi so far but it's a bit sketchy on fueling with E30. 18psi might be as high as we can safely go. We're currently evaluating it so keep those E85 logs coming in.

I checked this morning and it looks like aside from Map 2 under Menu 0, all the other menu selections are set to 0. Does that sound right? Is that how they usually come "from factory"?

Menu4 is the one to verify its set to 0. If so then that cruise issue remains a mystery. I'm sure we'll sort it out sooner or later.

Hi, yes it was set to 0. As far as the other 6 menu options (aside from Map 2 on menu 0), are they all to be at 0 as well? The video on the first page looked a little different, but that could be due to other mods?

Sorry, maybe I should rephrase my question. When I looked at the video, I saw that his menu selections were different from mine.

Is it recommended that we change those to match his, or leave them like they came (0 for everything except for menu 0, which is updated to the Map # 2 in my case)

Are Menu selections 2-7 (1 having no impact) to be updated as well to match the video, or can this vary from user to user? I guess 5, 6 and 7 are the ones that had the biggest differences? Should these all be 0?

'5 1st gear boost limiter. (Tach = boost cap / 3)
'6 2nd gear boost limiter. (Tach = boost cap / 3)
'7 3rd gear boost limiter. (Tach = boost cap / 3)
