Can't wait for tomorrow

Tomorrow is going to rock!

First, I finish getting my methanol injection installed
Next we are having an Evo Dyno Tuning day
Then at 3pm at the race track is an exotic car show with rides available in a Lamborghini and a Morgan Aero 8. How awesome will that be?

More hp for me, Evo morning and early afternoon, race track thing with exotics, back to evos possibly.


OH, AND I GOT OFF FROM WORK TOO! :drive: :elephant: :cloud:

Let's not mention the dyno graph
The kit I have isn't working right or something. So the tuner ended up lowering the boost 1-2psi and pulling a little timing because it wasn't right. He put a standard alcohol kit map on my car and it leaned out to 14.0, so he was thinking it's not spraying enough or something. Something is just not right with the kit. He bumped it to 28psi and ran the methanol and I got 333whp and 390wtq. But he didn't want that due to the kit. So he backed it back down to a tune that wouldn't matter if the alcohol sprayed or not.

The 390wtq was limit of my sctock clutch. There was another Evo there with the same mods and the different brand alcohol that put down 365whp/390wtq. His stock clutch lasted 30min after the tune. So I am going to get a new clutch installed and while it's in the shop, get the new alcohol kit installed, and mail my ECU into the tuner to flash that map. So soon I'll have a new clutch, alchol kit that works and a tune for it. Then my numbers should be more accurate.


On the plus side, the Italian Club car show was f'n sweet. They unveiled a new Lamborghini Gallardo (the special edition. Couple more hp, new wheels, new interior). Ruf had a booth there. Pics will be hosted up on my website later, but it was f'n sweet. Didn't get to ride in any of the cars though. Got there too late, but it was still cool to watch them and see them up close.

Re: Can't wait for tomorrow

is it spraying early enough?

i know its meant to SUPRESS knock and predetonation before it happens. if it sprays too late and knock/predet is already occuring, its useless. sounds like knock was still occuring thus timing being pulled back. was anything used to log timing or knock? where was timing first being pulled, and have it start spraying 3-500rpm's before that point.

btw i still think youre maxing out those measly 560cc injectors. id like to see what their duty cycles were at when you started to see timing being pulled, im guessing well at or over 100%. even at 15psi my 550's were reaching 90% DC. at 20psi they were hovering at 98%.

Re: Can't wait for tomorrow

It was spraying as soon as I hit 10psi of boost. It was just not spraying enough. Like the presure sucked. The tuner was logging knock, timing, a/f, etc. It was a complete dyno tune.

He said my injectors are fine still. He still had some more to give if he needed to. I don't know why, but with the evo injectors, if you keep the stock turbo, you can keep the stock injectors. They can support up to 400whp.
(Plus, methanol is an additive and burns too, so you actually lean the fuel out and lower the duty cycles under high boost)

Tomorrow. I took 88 pics yesterday. Some of the Evo day and a lot of the Italian Club. And resizing them each and then hosting them is going to take a LOT of time.
