Made my day seeing this! Had no clue you guys were making a JB for the 18' Tiguan!

Just picked up a 18' Tiguan SEL Premium 4 Motion and Im digging it. Its more for the girlfriend, and not my normal "over powered" cars.. But, its a great little truck. Now.. The power really leaves something to be desired..

Having been a test car for JB1, JB2 w/ hot pills and JB3 on the n54 I have mad love for terry and BMS. So, my questiion is.. Its looking like 50hp is the max you guys are getting out of this engine? Are you guys getting close to the most you can squeeze outta it? Or what are you seeing in terms of max +hp/+tq (stock bolt-ons of course) for the future?

Next, is that since its the same tune for multiple different cars, how does that effect driving dynamics? A GTI and Tiguan are completely different driving experiences and need to perform different duties.

I reckon 30-40hp to be conservative. We have been able to get big dyno numbers after lots of cooling but the ECU seems to intervene very quickly power wise when the intake temps climb so we dont like claiming those figures. The engine seems to be very sensitive to tuning.

George,

Any ways or ideas to get around this ďsensitivityĒ to get more power out?

Cooling mods will help.

Actual engine temp Like lower temp thermostat and radiator swap? Or are you referring to charge air temp and changing out the Intercooler?

So as a guesstimate if the intercooler was changed out to a APR (I know blasphemy to use that name in here! &#128556 intercooler what kinda HP/TQ numbers are realistic? Iíd like to have a Tiguan SEL Premium because of the great warranty/price/tech if we could make it get out of its way as a work vehicle. Otherwise I think Iím stuck (worse things could happen!) with a used higher dollar 2018 very tunable Q5 to have something peppy.

Hmm.....

Thnks George, looking forward to trying the JB our for the Tiguan.

Next big question, is there a timetable for introducing the other features like steering wheel controls? Gauge sweep? And thinks like the n54 JB4 has? Or is that something thatís not in the works?

Thsnks!

That wont be added on the VW. The cluster and steering module does not communicate directly with the OBD port making it impossible to do unless a extra module is introduced which will be more costly than the Bluetooth app combo.

Hey Guys, I installed the JB4 last week in my 2019 Tiguan ( North American ) , I would like to share to you guys. Most of the people like this year Tiguan but only one thing to stop them to get it is the house power ( same as me before ). JB4 make this car to slove that issiue. I installed last week and drove around 500KM .. It really impress ...I install the the JB4 , turbo Intel pie and K&N filter all together. These make the Tiguan totally different ( Sound, Turbo Lag, Power way much better than Stock ) I am very happy and Satisfied ( Even just use map 2 ) . I totally recommend you guys if you have this year Tiguan.
** George I would like to say Thank you for your quick respond and your time** If you have any news map update please let me know ...LoL

Any reason it drops dead after 5000rpm, is this still stock ecu limitations holding boost/throttle body closing etc?

Will be looking into one of the JB4 at some stage in the future

In the next few weeks we are fitting on A4 that are in hot climates and will have a better idea.
Any updates on this? As I am always in the hot climate where I stay.
The logs seems to have throttle spikes and IAT relatively high.
What are the best bang for bucks to improve

Cooler is a bit larger and marginally better than the Polo. Nothing that will allow for more aggressive boost targeting than the current maps.

Is this the right place to get a firmware update for a 2016 VW GTI?

Hi,
The GTI has a plain Gen3 motor. Firmware update can be found here: https://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50428

Group 8 is still in beta. Any assumptions when it would be stable?

To date we haven't needed to make a firmware update for any reason so its solid.

What is expected Tiguan power gain/ acceleration improvements without any?
0-100 - have someone tried (by default it takes like 9 seconds)?

There is a airmass meter on the intake path on the Polo so the normal EA888 Gen3 intakes wont work.

I just installed my JB4 to my cupra a couple of nights ago.
Instantly noticed the power increase - the car was wheel spinning in 5th as it was so wet!

Only hard part of the install is getting the cable through the bulkhead grommet! Couldnít get the USB through so that just lives in the engine bay and goes through the window when required.


Did a few data log pulls yesterday and emailed them off so hopefully going to try a custom map 6 as my car is a manual.

George, do I just email the excel file directly to yourself for this? I also sent it to the support email address


So far pretty pleased anyway
