I'm going to be posting my review in this thread once I get the tune, meanwhile I wanted to get a thread going for other's to chime in.

Anyone already tried Map 2?
  • Map 0: JB4 disabled
  • Map 1: 3psi over stock
  • Map 2: 4psi over stock.
  • Map 3: User adjustable fixed boost profile using "boost safety" as additive level
  • Map 4: Stock performance with logging active
  • Map 5: Under development
  • Map 6: Under development
  • Map 7: Under development

Sounds like a plan!!! Even though pulling a laptop out isn?t going to kill me.. I wouldn?t do it as often than if I had the app..

I was thinking once we can start datalogging it, we can start sharing VDynos

I've only put a few miles on it since installing, on the default map, and there is a very noticeable difference.

So some good news and bad news..

1. Good news- I received it yesterday and it took all of 5 minutes to install... The first impressions were amazing.. IMO, this is how aggressive it should be out of the gate.. speed is immediate and it moves with purpose.. Only using Map 1.

2. Bad news - it started sputtering and the check engine flickered a few times during normal acceleration on the highway to work this morning.. So bad, I pulled off to a remote parking lot and removed it. It was in the 30?s last night, 42 degrees this morning and the car was at normal operating temperature.

I ordered the REV3 this morning for Map changing and data logging. It?s going to be cold and rainy for the next week or so and I want to get as much data logged and sent to Terry.

Maybe a mod should merge this thread with the other two active JB4 threads so that all of this information will stay in one place. That'll make things a lot easier for someone searching for info down the line.

Out of the box you should be able to log data using their cable. The app just makes it more convenient.

Has everyone upgraded the firmware via the Performance Tuner software?
