    Terry@BMS replied to a thread Motiv Boostbox Question in N54
    It took a few hrs of programming due to how the timers and prescalars are multiplexed but given what the DME is capable of seems like it should be very straight forward. If you can get it down to 100hz it's not that far off. Anyway I had an idea for a simple converter that could retail for say $99, and we'd make good money on it, but not sure it's worth the effort. Better product might be a new solenoid that can run at higher speed? Anyway I'll keep the gears turning on this end. Had a flash only customer come up to me at No Fly Zone and lament his JB4 and how easy it was to change maps and tuning at the track when he needs. I think more and more single turbo guys will start to see what they are missing not running a JB4 when the dust settles and they are outside earshot of their pro boost box tuners. Not only is it cheaper and easier but does so much more for them. :)

    Haha thats funny, go ahead and call us out out of every other tuner. First off your prices are all wrong, second, if your going to be Joe's little playboi because you helped develop the new BB flasher, we mine as well remove our subscription(s) all together, it doesnt bother us one bit. We never post because we dont have the time to deal with this BS, plus we have spool street anyways when we do. BTW EVERYONE has the rights to the bytes some of them sooner than others do to beta but it'll be on the next XDF release anyone who has the latest BB FW has the tables. So nice try, Its funny how 100% of real tuners on this platform prefer flash only over piggyback, and considering the issues we had during initial release people still prefer to stay with it or even go manual boost control.

    Didn't realize it was happy hour on the east coast... sort of live in Houston... so, just wondering, when will the others of us be able to utilize the features of the boost box? I'm just seeing if it is really necessary to not let everyone in on the byte changes so that the people who purchase them can modify the tunes for themselves and flash with any tool that they so desire? Or will this be specifically for the MHD flashing utility?

    I've heard Hendrick or Henderson whatever the gin name is is good stuff. I use Bombay here for negroni. Whenever I drink negroni, my wife says it tastes like kids medicine/syrup lol

    It is 100% NOT necessary to purchase a Motiv tune for it to work correctly. Countless other tuners have tuned their customers' cars running the boost box, and I believe all the big name tuners have been provided with the necessary few bytes. They are also available upon request from any verified customer. See above. Hook a 3-port mac up the the DME without a JB4, and see what happens. Have fun running "all the boost" or "none of the boost" with no control. DME is 300hz. I can get it down a little under 100Hz easily. Past that, I would need to waste who knows how many hours digging into the tricore global timer array and prescalers code. Not the best use of my hours right now. Seriously? You struggled to figure out scaling pwm output frequency down to 30hz on the JB4, a platform where YOU designed the hardware and the high level source code. If I had that luxury it would be done in under 5 minutes on msd8x. Dude, you waited 1hr 20min during friday happy hour time EST? Come on now.

    Also FWIW I still don't understand why they even need an add on box to do it flash only. The box is only changing the frequency from 250hz to 30hz on the solenoid output. They really can't figure out how to make that speed change in the DME? Someone who believes in conspiracy theories might raise an eyebrow here. ;)

    cloud9blue replied to a thread Motiv Boostbox Question in N54
    Boostbox lets the dme to control the Mac solenoid instead of relying on an external boost controller, when implemented correctly it is a more reliable solution especially if you have an automatic transmission, since the transmission will see the correct load at all time. The challenge is that the stock PID algorithm for stock frame twin turbos don’t work well for external wastegates on the single turbo setup. Guys at Motiv have to rewrite most of the boost control tables, hence the extra cost for a lite tune. i am happy to buy that boostbox from your friend if that’s still available lol.

    Hoping not to get beat up in this post...but here it goes... If I buy the boostbox from Motiv then my costs are: Boostbox - $200 Motiv Propiatary tune - $300 with single turbo option selected MHD Flasher - $99 MHD logger - $69 MHD increased boost limit - $49... Grand Total - $717 Or I can get a JB4 with a BEF for $479 Or hell even a Procede for $700 brand new... Granted, I don't endorse the Procede by any means necessary, but just simply looking at it all. Only reason that I even ask this is due to someone contacting me that has a single turbo swap with a boostbox that they purchased when they bought their single turbo kit... I got on their computer and setup the BB App to flash the car. After finding out all of the details of his modifications it was apparent that he didn't want to spend any more money to get the car to work properly. After attempting to flash multiple times and no boost working I finally read on the Motiv website that it requires a 'lite' tune file to allow it to work properly... Without knowing what the changes are or the xdf referencing these changes I was unable to assist him. Therefore I asked him to remove the boostbox and sell it, rehook up his JB4 from prior to the Single Turbo swap, flash the custom JB4 firmware, flash the dme with a backend flash from the BB App and BAM!!! It worked amazingly! I understand this is a business and all, but at least have the decency to allow customers to have options in flashing. Double dipping from having people utilize one flashing platform over another and purchasing your products is sort of a poor attempt to monopolize the market. The main reason I'm attempting to assist the market is so that the community can purchase more upgrades for their vehicles without being "taxed" for each level of upgrade. The BB App works for flashing any of the MSD80/81/85 vehicles just as well as the MHD tool does. Is there any timeframe for when the new xdf's will be released?
