I got a reply back from the distributor. We can only get the jb4, usb and lsd hardware. This is because he is unable
to get discounted prices on them.

The SLD on its own is 10 euros.

JB4 is great but, keep some money aside for boost related issues that buying one might bring up.

Good advice. As long as the car is well maintained there is not much to worry about. If you have weak stock components then ofcourse it sould creep up but they would need changing anyway. The stock tune just hides it until it fully craps out

Maintenance does not really come into it, once you start upping the boost you are likely to run into issues regardless. Most fixes are quite straight forward but, in some cases [ mine and others ] it can become a real ballache trying to find the leaks.

That said, I would still buy it again without a minutes hesitation

Cheers

rialnet, I assume you have the G5 board on your JB4! because this SLD is only compatible with the G5 board. There is another more expensive version of the SLD that is compatible with the G4 board.

Hi Amin,

I might have missed it, but does he sell the G5 upgrade as well as the full G5 package.

ie. Just the G5 board for those that already have a G4?

Hi all,

Rialnet, I can find out how much the other version of SLD will cost. The one that is compatible with the G4 board.

windymissile, yes I am going to ask vullent if we can start placing orders now.

doughboy, he doesnt sell the upgrade packages. He only sells the G5 JB4 kit with or without USB and SLD. Is that what you are after?

i may be interested in the G5 upgrade + SLD (if it works with the G5 upgrade) depending on cost

Amin, the G5 bit is just the circuit board, all the case, plugs, harness etc are the same the G4.

So someone who already has a G4 installed (like me) only needs the new circuit board to upgrade.

like this: http://www.n54tuning.com/index.php?_...&productId=116

The upgrade is only $150 compared to $479 for the whole lot

The G5 SLD will work with the G5 board full stop, whether its an upgrade or new kit.

There's a few harness tweaks to do for the upgrade, but they're all on the N54tech DIY.

I understand what you are saying doughboy but I have already asked him and he does not stock the upgrade kit/G5 board for those with existing G4 JB4 kit.

I will double check this with him again.

Correct me if I am wrong but I was under the impression that another form of the SLD exists that works with the G4 board without the need to upgrade to a G5.

good news guys. After some negotiating the distributor has agreed to process orders early at the discounted price. I also managed to knock another 5 euros off the postage.
So total price for JB4 + USB + SLD = 460 Euros which includes P&P.

Those who are involved in the group buy, can you please PM me with your full postal address for shipping. I gather everyone wants the JB4 + USB + SLD combo but just to double check please include your order details.

Finally you will need to send a total of 460 Euros to " paypal@swiss-carparts.ch "
name of the supplier is vullnet.

When sending payment please select Euro value not Pounds.

I can't wait to get mine.

Glad to see this has gone ahead. Well done in the price and enjoy the new toys when they arrive.
The jb4 is simply awesome.

rialnet, I have good news and bad news. Good news is that we can get the SLD for your G4 board JB4 but the bad news is that it will cost 90 Euros inc shipping.

Let me know what you wish to do. I might be able to knock 10 or something off the price from the distributor but It will be round about that price.

Best to upgrade to G5 and get the cheaper SLD..

G5 ISO is where it's at, I don't believe Terry is still developing on G4...
