The JB4 has a notably salty taste. See if it's salty. If not, JB3.

Its a JB4, that red wire with a tie strap on it gives it away (middle, top of picture, to the left of the white connector).

when you install it if you can change maps with the steering wheel controls then its a jb4.

if you have to change maps with the gas pedal then its a jb3


hope that helps.



jeveryday op is probably 1000 miles away from the car and "cl" its craigslist, also just in case "op" means original poster.
