    The 2-3 shift is a pita. 3-4 is worse. Shifting fast on the 6mt at high boost is ftl, I've experienced this with every tune I've ever had and hate it when it pops up from time to time. The more power you make the more frequent it seems to become.

    You'll probably want to have 4 - 2 enabled through the dash to make use of some of the jb4 safety features (if it decides to lower boost for lean condition, 4 - 3 with a high load flash will prevent that from happening), fiddle with default wastegate position to mask rattle, and base duty cycle to adjust spool characteristics. If the trims and afr were dead on before you may need to make sure they still are, if they are a bit rich you can lower FOL (fuel pressure bias) below 40 to zero or something, since you might have slightly negative trims now. Doubt it will be necessity though. That's all I can really think of other than the obvious things like setting boost limits.

    Yeah, in 90deg weather, I was hitting 140deg IATs after one 2nd/3rd gear run. You could literally feel the timing getting yanked in 3rd. It was so bad, I thought it was belt-slip until I saw the IATs.

    Interesting, as isn't all of that exactly what Terry was trying to warn him of by not doing any multi gear pulls to see what happened at shift points and with egts and iats? Again, if covered in the other thread...im blocked. So... thanks for the reply man!

    In preparation for future plans, I purchased a JB4 (ISO, FSB) to sit on top of my existing custom ATR tune (e85, meth, FBO, 450whp). My flash boost is dialed-in perfectly (~18.5psi, no throttle closures, solid AFR, good timing). I'm running JB4 on map 3 typically (~60 additive), and optionally on map 7. The question I have is, is there anything in particular I need to do to either my tune or JB4 to get them to work well together? Thanks

    He said they ran worse than the last time out. 11.8 at 124 with a ton of timing issues, flat lined timing from the 2-3 shift which never recovered, no 2-step launch, missed 1-2 shift, IAT in the 180* range. Basically what we all fear happening any time we go to a track day. They're working on the issues and plan to make another trip out to the track. I am really interested to see how the cars with automatic transmissions hold up to this new generation of stock frame turbos and enough fuel to run them to their potential.

    I don't see the JB4 as a competing product. It's complimentary. Pro tuners can use Cobb to setup the flash mapping as they want and the JB4 to control boost up to 36psi, run better safety systems, and all that jazz. :)

    Exactly, things do change, and now 30 psi is valid again, and more so than ever. You know Cobb is losing ground and giving up on a very big market as I stated many times bigger than anything else the support save ecoboost, if Dzenno told me to go ahead and run a JB because its just too much work, and not the right way to do things running 30 psi on flash only. When you have your protuners, and dealers suggesting people using a competing product because what you are offering is not getting the job done, it may be time to look a little harder in putting the manpower needed to get rid of whatever that limit is, and keep them in users in your camp.

    If you are looking for a sporty German drop top capable of seating four people here are three very good choices. The Audi S5, BMW 435i, and Mercedes E400 are all worthy choices. The question is, which is the best of the group? Well, Sport Auto fortunately decided to do a comparison with data and even took the cars out of on the Hockenheim course. So how do they stack up to each other? Well, the S5 blows the other two cars away especially the BMW 435i which gets stomped by both the Audi S5 and the Mercedes E400. Keep in mind the E400 is sporting the new Mercedes M276 DELA 35 3.5 liter turbocharged V6 powerplant. This engine offers 333 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. The E400 offers the most torque out of the group with the S5 at 325 lb-ft and the 435i at 300 lb-ft. The 435i trails both the S5 and the E400 by 33 horsepower. What the 435i has going for it is the lightest curb weight but it doesn't matter on the track. It has the slowest laptime of the group. It lags behind the S5 by 3.6 seconds around the Hockenheim which is an eternity. It is also 2.2 seconds behind the E400, ouch. What happened to BMW's sporty character? The S5 is chosen as the best of the three cars and Sport Auto states it isn't even close. The E400 is chosen second and the 435i takes last place. Have Audi and Mercedes really improved that much or has BMW become far too complacent? You be the judge.

    Ian, Thanks for the answer! Still a little confused as to why I have emails from Cobb engineers stating we should have the code to run much higher boost in 3 weeks from 2 years ago when we were running 30+ plus psi on flash only, only to never hear about it again. We are now back to the place where 30 psi is a valid need, as stock frame turbos can and will make 30psi in the midrange. Leaving the ecoboost out because that is a huge platform, the N54/55 platform is many times larger than any other platform Cobb supports, it seems like it would be well worth the time spent to up this limit, as it will keep a lot of people in the flash camp. Just my .02, thanks again for all the hard work

    The best solution is just to say no find our own place leave me alone. Honestly, I'd feel awkward as hell living with some friends for $200 a month. I'd feel like some pathetic mooching piece of shit and I'd rather live in a tent in the forest than do that.

    I'm going to take a more in depth look but not too much is striking me on that list. It's not a premium tasting it looks like they are keeping the wines a 'value' for the most part. Avoid 2011 North Coast California red wines. Not a great vintage. Get yourself 2010, 2012, etc., skip 2011. I don't know if you like whites but I'd start with Kim Crawford and MacMurray whites. Definitely try the MacMurray Pinot Gris. From the reds the one I'd be looking for is the Grant Burge Holy Trinity. Never tried but based on the description it's the most interesting red there. Go for the Buried Hope Tempranillo. For whatever reason Tempranillo from Spain tends to impress. Leave these Sangiovese's for last: Umberto Cesari Tauleto and the Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Oro. Beyond what I listed nothing else interests me but I'd try any Pinot Noir I'd come across just because that's how I roll.

    No, I wouldn't get bigger because she could escape. I'd fit her tight ass in there and leave her in the backyard. Maybe hose her down once or twice a week... No way in hell that she would step in my house.
