Just installed jb4.
Man was there a difference. Car is much much more powerful than bms stage 1 I had for 1 year.
But engine stalled 3 times, rough idle quitw often, don't know why, can anyone help?
I've checked on n55 post about this, some say its down pipe, cracked charge pipe, broken waste gate.
My car was all good until installing today, i mean i cant broke everything at once can i?
If nothing can be fixes i am going to go back to oem asap.
Please help if u can.
Thankyou!

check the fault codes and go from there.
Also from my experience most of these piggy backs never run as smooth as flash upgrades.

Is your JB4 the one where you have to insert a few individual wires? It would be if I was to upgrade. Not a necessity for me as I'm more than happy with S1.

Could be the wires may be incorrectly installed perhaps????

Otherwise, why don't you go back to stage 1, if you can.
Hope you sort it out.

mmmm I've wanted to jump on the JB4 band wagon too. But so far am just happy with the stage 1.

I'd be advising the same... unplug it, going back to stock to see if issues are still present. Do you know if there are any fault codes being thrown from the JB4?

My stock 328 stalled and developed very rough idle when the fuel injector failed.... is the car giving you any drivetrain warnings?
