Just installed. I'm pretty sure all connectors are connected properly (TMAP, MAP, and CAN) as display shows data properly and I also felt them all click during install.
Running map 1, 3, or 5 with the app running on my phone, when I get into the boost, it says something like "JB4 switched to safety map" . I have '18 ZCP completely stock except removed charcoal air filters, running Sunoco 93 octane, so these maps should work for my setup. Any ideas what to do based on previous experience or do I need to data log and repost? If need log, should I just log it in Map 1? Less importantly, I'm wondering will the torque/hp displays in the MMI reflect the additional power from the tuned maps?

Anything relevant would be in the first post or two.

For the new digital dash models we do not have the BC options fully working yet so use JB4 Mobile if you need for map changing and such.

If you are unable to use the in dash option (since, we don't have 2018 G model digital dash support yet) then the BlueTooth is your best option. You'd want that for logging and setting changes anyway. Technically though the BC will work even if you don't have the correct feedback on the dash by counting clicks.

The M2 is fairly unique in that it is just a normal N55 motor that runs much higher boost from the factory. M2 specific directions are not in the first post since it's not a high volume car and those customers normally just email us for help if they need it.

On your M2 since the factory has already giving you more than half of the boost gain you'd with a tune in most cases you'll want to use a custom map settings on the JB4 end. On the user adjustment page under map6 boost levels enter 2.5psi from 1500-7000rom (e.g. all spots), press save, and then select map6 to run that profile. You can also evaluate map1, the factory map, to see if your fuel pump will keep up with it. Some M2 fuel pumps do, and some don't. If it does not keep up you'll get a low fuel pressure limp mode and misfire codes. The map6 settings above generally work for all M2s.

You'd need to change the fuel injector timing which we can't do with a piggyback. It can be done via flash tuning or when adding in a JB4 back end support flash map. Various customers who run exhaust burbles have reported some issues though so be sure to look in to it further before enabling it.

I can't seem to find my answer, so I figured I would post. I have a 2014 335i w/EWG harness installed. What is the default DWP setting supposed to be? Mine is at 0, but I see others at 80.

Default Wastegate Position.

0 is factory, the higher the number the less turbo lag and quicker throttle response but the higher the chance of waste gate rattle. You can play with that number. Check out this thread.

http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30291

Sometimes i have mine at 80, others 10, really depends on what you want.

Last time i had mine on 80 i got a CEL for sluggish wastegate.

Default CAN Wiring - 12-18-2017, 06:53 PM

Hi, I have a 2012 F10 535i with PWG and just purchased an older model JB4. This is one without OBD2 connector and 4 loose wires. The 3 pairs of connectors are pretty straight forward but i'm a bit confused by the separate Black, Red, Green and Brown wires. Ive checked the online instructions and searched this site and its clear the Red is Power and the Black is ground but i'm not sure on the Green and Brown. I know on a newer JB4 these are for the OBD2 connector but mine does not have this. Can you tell me where these connect or provide the older model installation instructions? Second, with these connected, will i have the ability to perform MAP changes from the dash or is that only available with the OBD2 interface?

Thanks, Realize these are both pretty nobbish questions and appreciate the help

I have the BMS USB cable and will do the firmware update as soon as the JB4 is installed. The previous owner purchased in 2013 so i'm sure it needs an update. Also, found the CAN wiring on an old post of yours from 2011. I expect its the same? thanks!

OK, can i install without green and brown wires attached? I believe in the current instructions you say this results in a default of MAP 1. Then i can order the OBD2 interface and install later.
