Yes, I've been driving the 530e with the JB+ for the past 2 weeks or so. There was some extra power going up the hills compared to what I had prior to installing it. I didn't get much freeway driving since my commute is mostly local and in traffic.

When I did go on freeways, the car seemingly hit 90+ mph very quickly. My thought here is that the power kicks in harder once the biturbo is really working.

Installation was super easy. I maxed it to 4.5 PSI when I received it, since I don't see a point in dealing with it later. Leave your car unlocked, open the hood, put the key somewhere far away, and wait for your car to shut off completely. It took about 4 minutes, which consisted of realizing I needed to remove the cover, unplug the right one (a little struggle), and plug the unit in. It'll take a few days to learn your car, maybe longer since our cars aren't running on the internal combustion engine much.


Hi Changstaz - super thanks for your reply, I didn't read this earlier. Can you post photos of the TMAP sensor to where this would plug in? I wanted to see how I can unplug it and attach the JB+. Here are some photos of something I thought was the TMAP sensor, please correct me if I am completely wrong - newbie here.

JB+ Post Installation

Folks - I just installed the JB+ on my 2018 530e this evening. I was a bit nervous but I saw that this will go only in one of the map connectors and was also worried if I fitted it losely but it came out to be a snug fit. Also, I don't think the engine would have fired if I had connected it losely so all is good. I also maxed out the psi level all the way clockwise to the right (5 o-clock).

So then I took her for a spin up and down the hills, about 10-12 Miles round trip, and quite frankly, didn't notice much of a difference. I had gauged with the sport displays before the JB+ and it had tapped out at 240/300 and I had similar results after the JB+, maybe around 250/310. I drive efficiently most of the time so flooring the gas l is not what I do usually but I did most often in my "test drive" post JB+ installation, but it didn't go past 245-250ish.

Is there a break in and learning period for the JB+? Am I going to feel the difference on the freeway when I pass other cars? Tell me more ...
