if that's the latest firmware I'm pretty sure your max boost per gear is incorrectly inputted, the last post from geoge said you enter the number you want it reduced by. ie: typical max boost say 23 and you want it to say below 20 you would put 3 in that line.
I havn't updated the firmware since like 2018 when I got the thing, Don't even remember how to do it. I could just disable the max boost for 1/2 not sure why its there

my car is manual, I'm doing the clutch with in the next few weeks, got all my stuff in the mail now for the project of adding dash gauges - (E gauge,meth flow failsafe) and pre intercooler meth nozzle + the larger trunk tank next week then its on to the clutch.... way too many projects keep spiraling on this car, lol.
ah ok, well then nevermind. Clutch doesn't have much life left then.

If you really need to know an exact amount of E in your fuel because you tune to a specific content, or are super anal and just like the fun of another gauge, get one of these:


Otherwise, 2-3 gallons in a fillup is generally the sweet spot.

i'm going to reduce on the 7's by .5 psi and log again in like 1 hr, hopefully this reduces the knock at 5500rpm
Have you tried Map 3? Looks like you have an older firmware version though. If so, try a log of 3 vs. 6 (with the reduction you mentioned) and see what ya get. I'm thinking better overall advance with Map 3. If you're looking for more "snap" down low, Map 2 on E should do the trick. Unless you don't like seeing the traction control light flash all the time ?.

good link, I saw something on amazon that was 85$ and built by AEM which showed E concentration, it plugs in via OBD2 so i guess its no good for jb4. also, I don't really care about the E concentration, i put 2-3 gallons and ride with that.

are any of the newer firmware version worth upgrading too? smoother ?

what did you see for $85? That’s typically the cost of the sensor only.

could you give me a little refresher on how to upgrade the firmware, I saw on this thread before some people had problems on the newer FW and had to revert
Most bugs worked out of the newer versions with the latest 60/86//5. I have the BT app so I do all updates on it, and not a data cable/laptop. There is an update firmware choice on the main screen of the app. Click on it and it takes you here:


Choose FW download at bottom of the first post and download it. Make sure you have a good WiFi connection with the app or laptop. If you do it via BT app, make sure all other BT devices are disconnected.Takes a while if you have a real early version like you do. Let it run, it may kick out if you get any glitches in your WiFi. Try it again until it fully updates.

It doesn't look like the latest firmware is on that page.

1. Ask George for it.
2. Use the latest version of the phone app to download the 8_6_T3.

moar pics of car in background plz
It’s my neglected 1970 rs... took it apart 10 years ago to do a resto - to the underside and frame (frame on was already done) and the lay recession hit... and now I still just haven’t found the interest to get back started on it, heres a shot before. And another from last year when I first got the gti showing the cars front clip off, lol.

Sooner or later I’ll get back to it.
