I grew up in Indiana. I hear you.

I'd rather have 370+whp all year, even in those 3 weeks, than a weird combo of badass winter power and shitty summer power. Especially on a JB4

I ran +7.5_8 on my jb4 on stock ic with meth in the heat I have here and our heat here in yuma is stupid. Meth is a cheap alternative way to beat heat and is an added bonus when temps are cool also.

Huge bonus in cool temps. I'm running more boost and timing on less ethanol due to the meth, but that's no surprise to anyone. It has allowed me to work around LPFP and HPFP installs and still squeeze another, maybe 10whp out of the setup.

I'm pretty much done with JB4 once I upgrade the turbo anyways....it has been great though for an interim solution until I did a proper tune

Does anyone have experience getting a front mount and did you notice significant improvement over stock? Install is just miles easier and it makes it really easy to swap back to stock if i sell the car...just not sure if i'll get the benefits i need from it to run map6 all through the summer.

It's worth it, IMO.

From the logs shown and data provided it seems a FMIC & a Twin cooler offer benefits that warrant the cost + install. It may not be the best persay, but it will be good enough for a JB4 non BT car. Frank Mabo's kit seems to be the king of FMIC whelm, its fucking HUGEEE also.

Get the GTI Jakes FMIC - excellent value and way bigger core than the other solutions on the market and less cost

Finally had a chance to do a log on a nice hot day. Mid 90s out. Looks like my IAT got up to 140F.......

Id like to start playing with map 6 but I dont know if I should until I build an intercooler.

Hey guys, first time posting here so go easy on me
Did some logs today and yesterday with some values george gave me. Been trying additives for some time, but want to dial in a decent absolute map.

Here's the numbers he gave me:

15
16
18
20
22
23
21
19
18
17
16
16

Failsafe set at 27, fuel bias all set to 100. Fuel open loop 60

Mods are Catted DP, turbo muffler delete, closed air intake. Running EU 98(US 93?) and e20-25% blend. Since its a clubsport I have the is38 turbo

Did 2 logs, First one I forgot to push it beyond 6k and on my second run I forogot to turn off traction. Shouldn't affect my Ign1 tho which I think looks a little sketchy?
Afr also crashed on second run, what's up with that?

First Run: ambient temp 65F
https://datazap.me/u/denzb/log-15315...4-6-9-11-14-18


Second Run: ambient temp 72F
https://datazap.me/u/denzb/log-15315...-14-18&solo=11


Almost forgot, 6MT.

GTI Jake's kit FTW it's no joke, good as any option or better, takes 2 hours max to install. Cost to you other than the cooler........two actual Cobalt drill bits. Watch his vid and read his thread on here

Not much more on tap without one or some ethanol/methanol.

I think the clubsport has that weird overboost function it does. Don't think one should run a JB4 with that. It will be either too low or too high. Can't tune for something that changes like that.

So I installed an eBay twincooler a couple of days ago and have been playing around with some e85 on map 2. Here's my first log in 3rd. Timing looks good to me but I am no expert. I was impressed at the IATs which remained low until I took my foot of the gas. Let me know what you think!
