Fitted my JB3 earlier

I have a JB3 which has sat waiting to be fitted for what seems like an age. Anyway earlier today I finally got around to installing it. Just back in from a quick test drive, all I can say is feck me!!

The car is totally transformed, 2nd gear accerleration is incredible

There are setting you can play with on the OBC (change maps etc.) ?

Enjoy it !

Have you sat with this for that long?

I really should have fitted it.

I bought it on here from Kerr, it's the older JB3 but it was current at the time as theJB4 hadn't been released. It doesn't have the features of the JB4 but you can change maps.

Yep. It's sat in a cupboard all that time. It is pretty ridiculous I know but I had a lot on my plate.

I'm on a bit of a roll at the moment, I've just clay barred the car too (I've had the kit for over a year )

Surely even before the JB3 was fitted the limiting factor in second gear on a 335i would traction.

To an extent yes, but on a smooth, dry bit of road, good tyres and feeding the power in you can get good grip.

120 upgrade will get you to the JB4. It has 1st 2nd gear boost reduction for better traction of the line. If you want an upgrade kit let me know...I'll need to order one in.

Your missing out on the Guage Hi-jacking

I have boost reduction on the JB4 in 1st/2nd, this works really well.

Funny thing yesterday, I was 'giving it some' down a country road and thought this car is bloody fast with JB4, then the lights flashed to tell me the JB4 was ready and the car became 'scary' fast
