290 kw from my 535

Hey all,

This my first post but have followed this site for a couple of years. I just had the JB4 installed in my 535 GT car and after remap for South Africa I'm pushing 290kw. This is the most rewarding mod period.

Interesting fact is that when car was Dino'd before upgrade it pushed 246kw and not 225. Go figure!

For those of us using antiquated Hp, that converts to about 389Hp - definately a nice jump from about 300Hp.

I thought the JB4 wasn't available for the 535GT. Maybe it is a model year thing. What year is your GT?

TIA

According to Terry the JB4 doesnt work on the F chassis cars. The OP might be referring to the JB3 stage 1 which doesn't bump up the HP that much

It is a Jb4 on a 2010 GT. Bought the Jb from Burgertuning. Due to the high altitude here I had it remapped at local tuner and have not been able to wipe the smile off my face!!!
