BMS JB Stage 1 Released

Updated: 18.05.2016
Tutorial added for installing software and making changes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjQjMWBVve4

Updated: 7.04.2016
The MAC map selection issue is resolved. Please download latest interface version from here: http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21742

Updated: 6.04.2016
MAC SOFTWARE IN ITS CURRENT REVISION SEEMS TO HAVE CAUSED A ISSUE WHICH REVERTS THE BOX TO MAP 0 WHEN MAP CHANGES SO ITS ADVISED NOT BE USED AT THIS STAGE, LINK HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN AND WILL BE PUT BACK UP ONCE WE RESOLVE THE ISSUE

New user interface with different method for map selection


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.

We have finally reached a point where we have released our JB Stage 1 offering. The retail price is $379.
The unit is called a stage 1 or JB1 as it is called on the forum 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_volkswage...JB1_tuner.html



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 with Golf 1.8T and 2.0T covering 210, 220hp and 230hp version for the North American and ROW market with dual injection. It is also compatible for the newer models that have the Flash ECU lock.
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 95 Euro. The typical power gains on this setting are 35whp and 45ft lb. With higher octane on a bolt on car we have seen average gains of 45whp and 65ft lb in Map 1. All of this whilst keeping the engines stock fail safes in place.

Tutorial covering interface install and tuning changes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjQjMWBVve4

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 .
A 3rd Party has developed a Mac version of this interface. It can be found and downloaded here in post 1 http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21742

Directions on how to connect and change firmware:

Directions on installing the interface and connecting to your JB can be found here
http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showpost.php?p=197021&postcount=1
Watch this video showing the process as well as some map and tuning changes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjQjMWBVve4
Please note when doing a firmware update JB unit must be connected to car and key in the on position.

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.


[/IMG]


Upon shipping the following maps are active:
Map 0: Stock with complete pass through i.e. the JB1 does nothing
Map 1: Less aggressive boost profile map, this supports 91 octane 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 found that with intake, dp and 93 the boost can be pushed to +5.5psi. The method of doing this is in the second picture below. A E35 ethanol mix has been tested with this map and its fully compatible to run at boost levels up to +5.5psi when complimented with FBO (full bolt on mods). For anything higher than +5.5psi race fuel is required.
Map 3: Map three allows the JB1 to be the methanol controller working as a fail safe cutting boost if lack of meth flow is detected. You will require a Coolingmist FSB to get this working. A explanation on the settings will be given once we have decided which base map is used and how much extra boost when meth is flowing can be given.
Map 6: User adjustable boost profile (see below) Active on units that ship 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.




There is a new release of the interface so now the boost setting change is under Boost Safety as circled in red. Updating your existing one if previously downloaded is not required.



Map 6 boost selection:

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 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.

Dedicated Map 6 discussion thread here: http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12325



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.

Just to be clear, one needs the cable to switch between map 0 and 1 correct?

They must have done some work on the site. You can either click VW right below the GTI or try this link http://burgertuning.com/jb_vw_stage_1_tuner.html

I have ordered one with the cable and will try to get some video before and after.
Need to borrow my friends GoPro so I don't have to use my iPhone 6+.

Looks great! I've been following the progress a lot in the other thread and I'm excited to see initial thoughts. I probably missed this in that thread, but will this do anything to eliminate the CEL that usually comes with a DP?

Thanks!

Thanks. The unit does not eliminate the CEL from DP. You going to need to fit a spacer.

Once the unit is removed it is mostly undetectable to the dealer, correct?

You can click the dynos and they become bigger. I have a few dynojet and expecting quite a few more when the first batch ships out and will update as we go along.
