Posted several of my logs with Map 2 on N54Tech forum. Hopefully Terry will give me a response.

BMS doesn't do forum support. You'd have to email them if you need assistance.

Let us know! I guess I need to do some 'logs'. Not sure exactly what I'd be looking for or targeting to capture.

Yeah, I was trying to upload this response but took too long. Seems like good news though!

Terry said that I need to select F10/F30 from the drop down box and run restore default. I did select F10/F30 but did not run restore default.

I am going to check my settings this weekend again. Maybe this is why I didn't notice or feel any power from the upgrade.

To Re-Cap:

We need to have " F10 / F30 " selected, and ALSO have "Run restore default" also clicked, is this correct?

Yes and then after that, select Map 1 or 2.

No.

It will theoretically work, but the instructions aren't out as you can't tap in to the correct wires as you can with the auto's. Apparently, it's a bit more difficult. As a side point, the Stage 2 for F30's are technically in Beta. Not sure how long they'll stay that way but plenty of people are using them.

For the JB4 don't forget to reconnect your boost solenoid connector as well. It's not used for Stage1 but required for Stage2.

For automatic and manual transmission? Which connector on the harness is for the boost solenoid?

When I look through the F30 JB4 upgrade kit pdf from n54tech I don't see anything mentioning to connect the boost solenoid connector on the harness.

That's a good tip.

I don't think it's clear in the instructions. I 'assumed' it was necessary because Stage 2 only worked with that specific solenoid, but it was never plainly stated (that I could find anyway) if any of the additional connections were required.

Side point, will the Stage 2 be offered on the website as an upgrade for Stage 1 users for the F30? I see it as a package for the previous body and realize we can email and ask for the F30 stage 2, just wondering if that's happening anytime soon or it will be in Beta for awhile.

Definitely don't have my solenoid connector hooked up and I have been running stage 2 for a few days now.

I wonder what the difference will be once I do hook it up? Have I been driving without the full potential of stage 2?

I had a feeling this would be required. I'm eager to hear Stage 2 guys reviews once this is plugged in (I believe most of them had it unplugged). Noticeable difference? Next to nothing?

Btw Anelson, if I remember correctly, the solenoid plug wires on the BMS harness are blue.

Yes confirmed with Terry on blue wires. Off work in 45 minutes, we'll see how it goes.

Damn, I didn't have mine plugged in either... So did he say what kind of difference this would make?
