Default Burger Tuning JB1 Golf 1.8TSI MQB specific information thread - 03-29-2016, 02:59 PM

Updated: 29.03.2016

This thread is specific to the Golf 1.8TSI US model.

First available firmware update resolving idle issues some vehicles have had available here: http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34711
Please note when doing a firmware update JB unit must be connected to car and key in the on position.


The unit is called a stage 1 or JB1 as it is called on the forums because it is a simpler unit compared to the yet to be released JB4 and does not signify stage tuning as one is use to when it comes to flash tuning.



These units are now available and a ready for order at http://burgertuning.com/vw_volkswagen_Group3_JB1_tuner.html[/URL]
Retail price is $379 plus $35 for the optional Data Cable

The JB1 is a true plug and play tune offering safe and adjustable gains. It can be installed and removed in minutes.



Install instructions:
Install instructions can be found here: http://burgertuning.com/instructions...G_EA888_G3.pdf
The JB Stage 1 is suitable for the EA888 Gen 3 motors on the Golf 1.8TSI.
The unit ships with a base setting in map 1 that increases the boost by +4.8psi over stock that is safe to be used with 91US octane and up. and 95 Euro. The typical power gains on this setting are 35whp and 45ft lb. .

User interface software:
For users that have opted to purchase the optional BMS Data Cable you will need to download and install the user interface at this link http://www.n54tech.com/flash_files/jb4_interface.zip .

Directions on how to connect and change firmware:
Directions on installing the interface and connecting to your JB can be found here

Please note when doing a firmware update JB unit must be connected to car and key in the on position.
You will know you connected when you can see values in the user adjustment page. If these are 0 the unit is not connected to the laptop.

Firmware is what runs the JB1 unit. As we release updates or new firmware version this can be uploaded to your unit free of charge.


Map selection:
In order to change the map in the picture below under the logging tab you can pick the required map. Under status the unit must show connected. This is done by clicking file and selecting connect.







Upon shipping the following maps are active:
Map 0: Stock with complete pass through i.e. the JB1 does nothing
Map 1: Tuned map, this supports 91 octane and up at the base boost setting as well as bolt ons. If higher octane is used the boost can be increased as well as with bolt ons. We have found cars running 3 handle up to 5.2psi boost safety add just fine.
Map 3: Methanol map to be used with our integrated meth system. Email for details.
Map 6: User adjustable boost profile (see below) Active on units that shipped 30.09.2015 and after. If you have previously purchased your unit before reading this please email me george@burgertuning.com to receive a copy of the firmware.

Map 1 Boost settings
Below is a diagram of where the user adjustment is made for boost over stock. Add in the value and click save.




Map 6 boost selection:

Map 6 is optional to use and there is a bit of skill required to connect the plug due to its location. In the install instructions it is Plug A which is unused. The methodology to unplug it is the same and this is the location.



For map 6 you will need to connect to the unit and select map 6. If you have previously purchased your unit before reading this please email me george@burgertuning.com to receive a copy of the firmware. On units that ship from 30.09.2015 there is no need. If your unit has a exposed blue wire and has not been updated ever you will need to email.

Below is where you enter the values for map 6. It works similar to map 1 so the value is the additional boost over stock.



Recommended starting settings are as follows:

Base settings to be used as a starting point for map 6.

91 Octane

1500 0
2000 2
2500 3
3000 3.5
3500 4
4000 4.8
4500 4.8
5000 4.8
5500 4.8
6000 4.6
6500 4.5
7000 4.5

93 Octane (these are preset on the unit so users can just select map 6).

1500 0
2000 2
2500 3
3000 3.5
3500 4
4000 5
4500 5
5000 5
5500 5
6000 4.8
6500 4.5
7000 4.5


The unit can log boost on the two sensors, dme boost as well as the rail pressure. The balance of the engine parameters and settings in the picture are exclusive to the yet to be released JB4 but it gives you a idea of what is to come.

Guys with boost gauges that are working off the OBD signal will only see stock boost.
If you suspect you triggered a engine light by unplugging a sensor by not waiting for the car to go into sleep mode rather clear faults before a dealer visit.


Support queries can be posted on the BMS support forum http://www.n54tech.com under the VW group section or using email at george@burgertuning.com . Please include the model of the car, fuel used and hardware.

Nothing. That byte isn't used for the VW JB1 software.

Does Gen 3 get IAT from map sensor on the manifold or the boost sensor?
Are you able to modify IAT with current setup?

From the intake manifold. The IAT values are not modified on the JB1.
