Ambient temps: 72-82F
Oil temps after 3 laps: 270F
water temps: 90-114C
lap times: 3mins

After a nice solid lap, I would throw an engine malfunction. Turned out to be Code: 30FF, repeatedly. Since I've never had a boost leak, I strongly suspect that the latest software needs the solenoid by pass, even with JB+ @ 50%. The good news, and MAIN thing I have to add to our never ending lovely thread, is that the Power didn't drop off after the code!!! In the past, as we've all experienced, once you throw a code and see that engine malfunction light, you've got like about 30% power left. However, with JB+, there is like about 94-100% power left! I mean you don't even feel it, and I was able to lay down the hurt the whole session.

This is quite a break through, cuz I wasn't expecting it. So for those of you who have other tunes, and throw codes, or even if you are stock, and you don't want the boost turned down by the ECU when you throw a code at the track, install JB+!
Of course, who else can come up with another unique track situation
Since you haven't mentioned 30FF before, it's fair to assume it's specifically tied to your JB+ implementation. Glad to see you didn't lose power, very odd though. Did you by any chance try to dial-it down and see if 30FF reoccurs?

My next event is in Sep but the car is running like crap after the last limp mode, getting several parts replaced before I can go out there again.

Nice ambient temps by the way for August!
