      I just installed mine. Center was easy, didn't even have to remove my factory plate mount. Sides were a real pain. I'm not sure if I just wasn't doing it right, or there was a slight manufacturing...

      Yup, I certainly would have waited if I knew it was an option.

      I've been debating replacing the sticker with something else or just removing it. I can see why they don't advertise that they can...

      I just got mine in today. FedEx had estimated an overnight delivery to Boston if it wasn't for COVID.

      I used vw171519 as the code.

      I also found out (after I placed the order) that you can just...

      Sweet, that was me. Usually all the Rs I've seen in the area are totally oblivious to everyone else around them, so it's always nice to get a wave!

      I believe ECU boost is what the ECU is asking for, which the jb4 probably gets from obd. The actual boost is measured by the boost sensor in the charge pipe (plug d), which is what the turbo is...

      Jb4 reads the boost from the sensor, then lies to the ECU and says the sensor is reading less. The ECU sees the jb4's "fake" boost reading instead of the boost sensor.

      I'm pretty sure it can't read actual boost unless you use the additional analog boost sensor wiring harness.

      Looks pretty interesting though.

      Yeah, I broke mine last year. Car has been perfectly fine since. That part overlaps the other half of the cowl, but doesn't have any sealing parts. Also, since the wipers pass through that cowl as...

      Nope, though I did end up buying the waterproof enclosure to replace the original jb1 box. I just place it between the battery and the air box. Shouldn't have any issue with excessive heat or dirt...

      Yeah, map 4 doesn't make any boost changes, but still is capable of logging. If you really want to turn it off, you can set it to map 0.

      What do you mean by default? The jb4 (and jb1) stay in whatever map you select, even if you remove it from the car.

      LIDAR jammers are fine (in most states) because they are just lights. RADAR jammers are prohibited by the FCC, making each use an FCC violation punishable by up to ~$120,000 and/or multiple years in...

      Yeah, if you are in the US radar jammers are NOT legal. Even attempting to use one is a federal offense.

      You don't need one, just have your Bluetooth and your car turned on and hit connect in the app.

      Is your engine running? Try coding it in accessory mode (hit the start button without depressing brake pedal).

      Nope, you can run the jb4 just fine in map 1 without a data cable.

      If you think you might want to log, buy the cable. It is only $35 and would allow you to switch to map 2 or do a custom map 6 if...

      Yeah, totally doesn't matter, they are both power. And to answer your other question, it just dangles. The red attaches to one end of the jb4, and the grey end attaches to the other. It would be...
