DIY: JB+/SSTT Skinny man install

How to install JB+ on a 135i without removing the stock air box!!!
Don't even try this if you have massive forearm, ask your girlfriend to do it.

Tools:
8mm ratchet wrench
Flash light
USB cable
Skinny arm

Remove the two 8mm nuts securing this fluid reservoir


Lift the fluid reservoir and bracket out of the way to expose enough space to reach the TMAP sensor


DO NOT attempt to do this while the engine is HOT or you'll burn yourself!!!
Reach down with your hand and get a feel of where the TMAP sensor is (If this space is too small for you to work with then you're better off removing the stock air box). Be very careful not to break the plastic clip securing the stock harness onto the TMAP sensor. Gently slide in the USB to undo the plastic clip and pull out the stock harness at the same time (Hint: under and up reach around method). Connect JB+ and enjoy!!!

Now that's impressive... having done it quite a few times now, I'm sure I could pull it off, but have never dared try. Well done, sir!

I dunno, man. I found the SSTT to be a pain in the ass to install, even with the airbox removed.

It takes me longer to put on my shoes than to install SSTT

Do any of you know if the install for the SSTT and SSTT2 are similar/same? I just purchased the SSTT2 and am hoping I won't have any trouble with the install...

If installing the SSTT2 I suggest you just go to the splitsec website and follow their instructions. I did it and although I did not find it easy I got it done.

There is also a DIY on here which tells you how to take the airbox out. follow that and then go to the splitsec.com and follow their instructions on the install
