Thats supercool! I was afraid to install meth, as I thought DCT will just crash.... I didn't even think of getting RBturbos until now

Already ordering meth and waiting for your comments regarding upgraded turbos!!!!!! You are going to make first RBturbo z4 stup in the world i guess.... thats awesomeI want to see your 0-100 kmh, 1/4 mile and mile numbers

The DCT doesnt "crash" it only slips because it gets on safe mode. If you tune for less aggressive first gears (tapper the boost) it works just fine. After all its the same Gearbox as the M3 just without a dedicated oil cooler.
Congrats OP! Share some video's whenever you can!

Is it possible to adjust boost for low gears via JB4?

BTW - can't get how people use Cobb tunning on top of JB4...how can two different tuners work simultaneously?

Cobb is used to reflash things in the ECU, to change the fueling and boost, for example.

JB4 piggyback is used to control the meth kit

So COBB does give betterr flexibility of fuel maps as opposed to JB4? SO it's better like for FBO heavily modified cars?

confused.
the in dash boost scaling using the fuel guage is shown in the link to be 0,5,10,15,20 psi for empty, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and full respectively for oe turbos.
Im curious how they rescale for higher output turbos.

Cobb has a built in data logger through the OBDII port. The data logger output gives the target and actual boost, as well as a lot of other things
