N55 JB4 Stage 2 & BMS Intake

Im so excited. I just placed my order for a JB4 and their new intake. We'll see what happens but if it works as advertised I should be gaining at least 60 HP. I will be posting more pictures and reviews once I get them and install. Thanks to this forum and its members for helping and providing so much good info. Hopefully I will learn a lot and contribute more in the future.

Don't forget to order your flex fuel wires as well to run up to 45% E85 when ever it's needed . You want to install the JB4 with the the extra wires in one blow. if you don't, then you'll have to reach the DME again. oh and get downpipe & chargepipe. I didn't want to get charge pipe but I just don't want to find myself stuck in the streets when it breaks.

I just installed the same combo on my car last week. The intake sound is great! I'm running map 1 for now, but the difference is very noticeable. The steering wheel controls are great. So far. In very happy.

route that usb cable to the glove compartment too while you're at it. I had to reach my DME 3 times, what a pain man cuz I was new and I didn't know any better. 1 for regular install, 2nd when I found out that you need to reach the DME box to route the usb cable, 3rd time to install the flex fuel wires.

Thank you guys for the feedback. Downpipe will probably be next. But I do want to build in steps to stay within budget and enjoy step by step. I really hope nothing breaks and I am finally able to have the fast car I am paying for!

Get CP for safety. Only $200 or look for used one for around $150. I believe there is one for sale now on the forum.

I'm impressed with the quality and fitment.

Once you take the stock one out, you'll understand why the upgrade is necessary.
