My plan was originally to go with a proper Stage 1 remap with DSG map but having read about the issue with turbos blowing and the cost of repair I decided against it.
I have been trying to look for any turbo failures from JB4’s but I cannot find anything, so I may go down this route.
Can anyone shed any light on if this is the case? JB4 is let’s say safer somewhat in terms of turbo failure?
(65 Plate DSG 24k mileage - 722H turbo)
So in August I traded my Manual 7R in for a DSG one (65 plate with 23k on clock), I bought the DSG for many reasons but mainly due to wanting to take it to Stage 1. After doing lots of research now I am slightly hesitant
Would turbo failure be less likely on a car which has more miles problem free? I understand there is an issue with balancing but would this have become apparent earlier or are turbos still just as likely to blow on high miles - This goes for after going stage 1 too?
I currently have 722H
£1-2k is hefty (for me) so on one hand I'm thinking leave it but on the other I know there are many people out there running tunes with no issues whatsoever! A DSG map is definitely on there cards though without a doubt.
** PS apologies I know the turbo failure topic has been beaten to death 9 billion times **
Afternoon guys and girls!
As you can tell by the title I’ve gone and done it, I took the plunge and brought a JB4 (thanks to @roberth for the quick delivery)
It’s seriously no joke, I proudly own a 2016 Lapiz blue manual Golf R and after fitting it (which was actually easy, yes you have to plug a connector at the bottom after removing the tray but that took 5 mins). The next morning I drove to work, after a few miles I hit the dual carriage way and opened her up, she went like the clappers, honestly day and night difference!
Since then I’ve moved to map 6 as I’m told it’s a bit easier on the clutch, the output still blows my mind and having my catback system makes it sound amazing when it peaks boost, even the odd pop off the throttle!
Now I haven’t played too much with the settings as they do throw me off so I’ve come here for some advice, what’s the best thing/s for me to change in the app, the only mod I have is a cat back, I’ve sent off a couple logs to @[email protected] for some feedback too.
Hi guys , im new to the forum.
I have a mk7 golf r and i am currently running a jb4 with a resonator delete, vwr600 intake , silicone hose and turbo inlet elbow from racingline.
I would like to get a downpipe next ,but im not sure as to which would be the best for not throwing any cel lights up.
Do you need a sports cat such as the bcs 200cell cat or can you just purchase a a downpipe without the cat.
Cheers for any help in advance.
Hope everyone’s having a good weekend!
Im looking to invest into a JB4 soon after hearing so many good things about them, I almost went down the DTUK road but I’ve heard a lot of reports of them leaning out, whereas the JB4 controls the AFR’s and Fuelling. (ps if anyone is selling one secondhand I’ll buy it)
My R is a 2016 Manual model, all stock apart from a Custom built cat back which some of you may have seen or even heard.
Im planning on installing the JB4 to reap the benefits of the power gains and logging, but I’m curious to know if I install a decat downpipe will the JB4 take care of this i.e no EML or putting it into a limp mode?
Sorry in advance if this has been covered, I’m new to the JB4 and if I’m honest the user interface is overwhelming with things to adjust and the forums are split with people saying the JB4 does/doesn’t sort out a decat Downpipe,
