JB4 Tuner Install

So I bit the bullet and went with a JB4 turbo programmer W/WIFI adaptor and Android app....and I have got to say it's an amazing upgrade!!

Now with that said let me give you the rest of the story...

The install was not simple by any means and the Installation instructions Burger provides online does not even completely apply to our trucks... It's based on a e series sedan?? Shows the ECU as accessable under the passenger engine cowling...nope that's an empty hole with wires junctioned thru there to what I assume goes to the passenger floorboard where I guess our ECU is located... As we have to connect to the Can bus in this location....along with mount the module here...I was quite perplexed at this point... And sort of aggravated with the poor instructions.

HOWEVER ... I have to say their chat support knew exactly what I was complaining about and provided detailed pics with arrows pointing exactly to where to find said can bus wires and I have to say ANDO at burger was awesome.... but I would have still appreciated vehicle specific instructions from the start...

Install took me approx. 4 hours start to finish including the tech contacts and in the end turned out great.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Here's a few pics...
