    When I was in your position, with the latest software and 91 octane, I was told to use map 1.

    If you have 93 octane, you may be able to go to map 2, but I would check with Terry.

    Speed Industry said in this video that powerneedy guarantees no CEL

    I've cleared at this point. If it throws again i may have to give them a call. I'm also having a bit of time with the exhaust where it meets the midpipe, its leaking a bit and i cant seem to get it adjusted right to stop it. I may just take it to someone to fix that though, again, not a huge deal.

    I thought using a jb4 or some tuning solution would suppress the cel?
    Jb4 worked to suppress the cel when I ran a catless dp in my f30 335i. No 02 spacer needed.
    What is different here? Trying to understand before I get a dp. Are there certain catless dps that don't throw codes? Sounds like most here are running titan dp.

    No, for some reason BMS removed the ability to auto reset the CEL with the jb4. They said it was due to emission law? Dunno, seems like a dumb reason, but whatever.

    I've not seen any catless DP that didn't throw a code. I tried the Fabspeed extender with my Titan catless DP and it threw a code until I got a tune.

    He was talking about the catted pipe not throwing a CEL.

    Older JB4 software could suppress the cel. In order to stay legal, they no longer offer that on newer software, unless your country (Canada) doesn’t require it.

    That is the difference....it did in the past prevent a light, new JB4s and those with updated software will not suppress the light.

    With that being said, the fabspeed spacer has prevented me from getting a light.

    So the JB4 sold for Canada will manage the CEL to stay off with a catless DP?

    Yes, but they confirm that before sending it out. They are just trying to operate within the law.

    I live on the Canadian border and was hoping that would get me around the issue. It didn’t, but the 02 extender has been good for me.
