    This is nonsensical. But now there’s an issue that’s impossible to troubleshoot because the “quick” installing RaceChip lacks an ability to log. An issue that is directly related to the modification cannot be accurately diagnosed because the uninstall of the superior product takes an additional 3 minutes.

    It’s possible to have a JB4 that is completely plug-n-play and disconnects without leaving a trace, if that’s what you desire.

    Ultimately, your point is exactly why this morning i decided to buy JB4, because it has active logging and monitoring, and tbh I'd rather have that and the ability to clear codes and risk a minor blemish that a deep scan from a mechanic can detect than the racechip risking the implosion of my turbos

    Can you provide me with a link or info so that I can achieve this once my JB4 arrives?

    Maybe try 93 octane instead of 91. I have a racechip that I run with 93 octane. I normally run sport mode, but have run Race mode several times and have no issues. If you have to run 91, maybe run something like boostane instead of lucas oil. I know VMP (mustang guys) run that to up their octane levels. I will caution you about boostane to not run it all the time since it’s a bit harsh on the plugs.

    I read that, I’m just saying you are putting a lot of faith in that Lucas oil octane booster that you can get at walmart. I’ve seen videos that a lot of those octane boosters over rate their claims a lot. Your 97 octane that you are claiming was probably more like 92 maybe 93. Just saying you might want to use a quality octane booster like Boostane. A lot of racers use Boostane.

    Yeah I had mine do the same the other day. It has something to do with the AFR dipping down too rich, then coming back up under full throttle. I haven't found a solution for it yet, but I can definitely see it in my jb4 logs. It is the most irritating thing ever cause its probably taking off a good amount of hp & tq under load. Also had a friend tell me the other day after doing a pull that the exhaust was burning really rich under full throttle (on only Map2). So for sure its something to do with the AFR on this car.

    Yeah it's supposed to but some instances it's still dipping down around 10 which is really rich.

    Sorry, I didn’t read the full thread. Are your fuel wires for the JB4 connected to PIN 1 of the O2 sensors?

    I was asking about @luter200 who mentioned dropping to the 10s in AFR with the JB4. Just wanted to know if the fuel wires were connected when this occurred.

    @ecko04 - Yes my fuel wires are connected. I had someone tell me that its normal for the AFR to drop down to rich with turbo vehicles so I'm guessing thats normal anyway.

    Contact @Terry@BMS and send him your logs, I'm pretty sure he can fix that issue for you. I hope lol
