You mean relative to flash maps? The biggest difference is we're not flashing the car which leaves a permanent trace within the ECU and other vehicles modules, even if flashed back to stock later.

The JB4 is also 50-state emissions legal.

And in terms of power gains, I believe they are very similar.

Terry- Just got the JB4 for my new F150 with the 3.5- it really has awaken the truck up and it hauls my butt quite well! If something where to happen (Rod throws into block etc) or I need to take the truck in to the dealer- what do you recommend I do before taking it in, other then removing the tune and clearing codes.

What Map are you running 1 or 2?

For your question, If you have to take your truck in for any engine/trans, or recall for related performance issues I would take the JB4 box out, I would leave and hide the one wire very well that goes thru the firewall and call it a day. But thinking again if they lift the hood for even a simple repair or recall they would spot the JB4 box, so safest bet take it out for any visit (simple) the very least put it back to Map-0

If you throw a rod running higher than factory power levels don't ask the dealer to fix that for you. But on the JB4 end you can remove it as easily as you installed it.

I was only kidding. So similar to TD1 in the VW/Audi world- does ford have any way of flagging us even with the system taken off?

I'm running map 5. Lmao

Yeah I don't want to risk anything. I would clear codes, remove tune and all the wiring. Just wanted to know if there was anything else I needed to do.

On a side note the E85 calculator that was posted a few pages back doesn't work anymore. Anyone have another one that works well?

Hey guys, I've added the S&B intake as well as the Corsa Sport Exhaust system. Any recommendations on tuning/map adjustments? Running 93 consistently if that helps... Thanks in advance!

Also, I have noticeably more aggressive shifts into 5th gear. I read that some have had their firmware updated from Ford and it has helped the shifting issues a great deal. Any experience with this?

Not in a HUGE hurry, but I definitely want one. Works the same as the n54 one as far as steering wheel controls and such?

Please see attached sir, hope this provides you with the info needed to accurately assess with S&B and Corsa Sport exhaust.

FYI - No hard shift into 5th gear on this run, this was WOT of course. I'm noticing/experiencing the hard shifts into 5th during regular driving/acceleration in sport mode. Thanks again Terry!

Default Bluetooth Disconnecting - 01-17-2019, 08:05 AM

Hey Terry, installed my buddy Shannon’s (he may have reached out as well) JB4 in his Raptor last night and his Bluetooth keeps disconnecting. Any thoughts?

Hmm the log itself looks OK, I don't see any issues at the shifts in terms of boost, timing, and AFR.

On your friend disconnecting for app specific stuff Donnie is best for support: orders@jb4connectkit.com

Thanks Terry! Yea there was no experience of hard shifting into 5th on this run/log. However, it's very noticeable during casual driving in sport mode.

As for bluetooth connectivity, Donnie replied requesting the box not be place near the battery or other metal as this may be affecting the connection. I'll try relocating the board/BT kit but would imagine it will be hard to avoid metal under the hood. I'm thinking there may be an issue with wiring or the BT adapter may be bad considering I have mine in the same place next to the battery as shown in the install instructions and have had no issues personally. Thanks again for the help and I'll keep you guys posted...

Donnie can swap the adapter itself for you if you'd like. Ours is close to the battery and generally not an issue, although sometimes firmware updates take longer. Once we had to hold the phone close to the device to get it to fully update.

Does the hard shifting come up on every map?

JB4 map1 makes for a great 91 octane tune! We run it all the time on our trucks.
