Just got my preorder update on the JB4, shipping early August. Thanks to the beta testers, let's get some power!
Kind of what I meant. Like max temp after some spirited driving for a specified period of time, both with and without. I'd be curious if it's a negligible versus significant temperature difference.Hey gang I have been beta-testing this on my M3T, and still have a grin on my face.
As for excessive engine heat - this should not make much difference when you drive normally (unless of course you are pushing it hard and spooling the turbo up more frequently)
Yes, that's more or less what I'm interested in. With the turbo being a recent configuration, and its higher operating temp, I'm curious if it gets much higher than 205-210F sitting in traffic, hot day, spirited driving for 30 minutes or so. Does it max out closer to 210, or 225-235 with the tune? I'll try to get some baseline readings on my non-tuned turbo.Spirited driving has the Turbo spinning with or without the JB4 tune.
Perhaps the question should be more specific, such as;
"When a turbo is spooled up - does it run significantly hotter when running several PSI of additional boost?"
This is from someone with CX-30 Turbo:At least on my 2013 Mazda 3, using UltraGuage
- Blue light goes off at 55 C ( 131 F )
- When fully warmed up, and cruising on a cool highway: 82 - 83 C ( 179.6 - 181.4 F)
- During hot summer stop and go city driving with A/C on: hovered upto 96 C ( 204.8 F) before coming down.
- When driving up a mountain road in 2nd gear with A/C on : I pushed the temp up to 99 C (210.2 F) before cooling it down.
Overheat is at 116 C ( 241 F )
That’s exactly what I intend to do when I finally get it (except TC off). I’m not patient enough to be waiting for the JB4 to ship and the intake/exhaust to be released 😂I have in the past (with better numbers). But not for these runs; as I did not want to introduce any possible driver variables. Also forgot to mention I am running 93 octane.
All runs were done in sport mode, traction control on, stabbed from idle (no brake torque/brake boost), and I let the automatic shift for itself (appeared top be ~5300rpm)
