Basically, flasher and monitor are not beta but on a release level. Only the maps are "beta". But already better than cobb.

For building our own custom N55 maps, where can we find the BINs to start from?

hi im confuse. im fbo stock turbo right now with jb4. during this winter im planning to buy the ps2 and PI or TBI kit. Can i run mhd only and remove my jb4?

what will active that fueling?
to have a custom map does i need to go at your shop or you will send me one and flash it?
i will mix e85 to run high boost but in daily mode can i flash the stage 1 map to run only 91?

sorry i speak french ..

I uninstalled COBB on Friday. Flashed MHD and the battery was too low, car was freaking out pretty bad. I overnighted a charger and charged the battery. Martial gave great support and advice throughout this process, kept me calm. Just want to emphasize to use a charger and maybe pull Fuse #70 so pump isn't running the whole half hour.

First impression comparison of off the shelf maps, MHD Stage 1+ 93 octane vs COBB Stage 2+ FMIC Aggressive: MHD delivery feels very much smoother. Shifting is on point with my 2011 DCT. I don't know exactly what has gone into the Stage 1 maps, so more info on what parameters are changed on the OTS maps would be nice. I want to say the transmission delivery feels better than stock. Excited for Stage 2 maps.

Yes you can remove the jb4. We haven't decided yet if we'll propose oft the shelf maps for ps2, but you can get custom tuned MHD flash only and the car will run then better than on any pre-made maps.
TBI is controlled by a hobb switch independently of the tune. PI either by a stand alone controller or a jb4 additional controller.
His Justin at twisted tuning for a custom map that will be refined over several iterations by email.
You can have octane variants for your custom tune at a low cost. Stage 1 is for stock turbo.

Thanks for the feedback, glad you're back on track and enjoying our maps
Fuel pump fuse number may vary, it is always the last number next to the fuel tank on the fuses map.

I have Jb4 with all the requirements for Stage2+. Can I just set the Jb4 to map 0 and run the flash?

Thanks

No. The JB4 isn't totally off when set to map 0, so the OTS maps would have to be installed with the JB4 totally off the car.

That said, with MHD now offering beta maps, BMS has finally released a beta backend flash for the JB4 that is installed via MHD, just like the OTS maps: http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43151 That is a JB4-specific flash tune that is intended to work in tandem with the JB4, where the tune itself handles just about everything, but the JB4 continues to manage boost (as I understand it). Plus, you'd retain all the other features of the JB4. It's also free.

So you're saying the MHD stage 1+93 is as strong as the Cobb stage 2+ If not stronger?

There is no data to support that at all.

"Stages" are only relatively to the power goals each tuner is trying to achieve with each "stage" they have defined...

If both COBB stage 2+ and MHD stage 1 target the same LOAD then yes, they will produce about the same power on a dyno. I highly doubt MHD stage 1 is as aggressive of a tune as COBB stage 2+ though...

It is awesome MHD has defined more N55 tables than COBB ever did, but realistically there isn't much power left being "untapped." Finally being able to tune VANOS setpoints will surely bring a better transition from peak torque to holding peak horsepower longer (supposedly twisted tuning hasn't messed with the vanos setpoints much yet on the beta maps)...

I don't think so, personally (I just got off of Cobb yesterday). I will though say it's smoother as someone else said; the Cobb tended to hesitate or almost stutter in low RPM full throttle situations. This behavior was especially pronounced when I started custom tuning my car, with the Cobb OTS Stage 2+ Aggressive being my starting point.

I'm waiting for the MHD N55 Stage 2+ maps to come out so I can give those a go. (E82 N55, FMIC, hard pipes, catless DP, DV+ BPV, water injection)

We recommend unpowering or removing the jb4, at least as long as there is no 4.4 mode - then we'll evaluate. On n54, 4.4 is still not truly passive so I wouldn't hold my breath.

Correct I am not claiming that it was producing more power only that the delivery was much smoother and that's my subjective reading. I haven't even done any logs yet. I am going to be selling off the Cobb at this point though given how happy I am.

I'll give a by the seat update when Stage 2 MHD maps are available.

They appear to only vary by fuel. When you buy or flash the default maps there is no option to select the transmission. I'm not sure if MHD detects this automatically when you hook it up or if the same data is written for any transmission. Maybe they can clarify.

Here's how it looks when you go to flash a default map. Only stage 1 is relased so far so they are available if you have purchased Stage 2 until the Stage 2 maps are released.

Smoother was mentioned not stronger.

I tried to buy the license yesterday but I was not able to get the app to detect my ECU. Here is my setup:

- OTG cable tested with the jb4.
- Nexus 6P running Nougat.
- Cable bought from ebay according to seller "Tested":
http://www.ebay.com/itm/272108579702...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I imagine the problem is the cable, but does anyone what am is the phone suppose to use for the USB(please see pic)

Cobb knows the exact cutover point down to the VIN number, but from what I've read a 12/2011 is a "maybe".

As a follow-up, you can check your VIN on real oem. Here's my DME for 3/2011:

Shouldn't that mean I'm directly flushable? Or am I overlooking something?

No. If we feel the need to alter maps based on trans type, we'll add that later.

In that screen, it should be "supply power". That's the OTG setup, the android device is powering the USB device (KDcan cable, USB stick etc).

Yes, an empty MEVD1726 section means you have MEVD172, directly flashable. Let the fun begin!
