I was flagged down last night by this gentlemen in a very beautiful Evo 8. This car was immaculate and very very tastefully done. He just wanted to give me props on the Miata but I wanted to get a couple of pulls in so I offered to hit the good ole Mexican freeway.
He was all for it - after looking over my car I asked him what kind of power he's making and he said it's currently on a low boost e85 tune making 697whp. I almost called it quits at that point but I figured what the hell. I'm not too proud to get my *** handed to me by properly built Evo.
Here is the specific car... Car makes 905whp/632tq on full kill - and was built by English Racing. Seriously nice build.
We hit the freeway and I pointed my go-pro forward expecting to catch the view of him walking away. After the first run I reached out and changed the point of view.. The car in the far left lane is a C5 Z06 with a violent list of mods. The runs were solid - despite both of us brake boosting I jumped out pretty hard on each run. The response was instant and the car held its own. Each run he blows by me after the Vette and I let off around 160mph.. Too fast for me!
Do you know what kind of power you're making now (sorry if I missed it)?
I've had a few 400-450whp Evo's hurt my feeings before. Taking down a 700whp Evo in a BP miata is crazy.
Last time the car was on the rollers I dropped a valve but most of the tuning was completed and I set it up as a hybrid boost comp tune (just add boost and a compensation map keeps my fuel perfectly in tune).
Based on where I left off I should be in the neighborhood of 450-460 to the wheels.
So basically you're doing the same thing I'm doing right now. Starting at a lower boost number to keep the torque low then tapering boost up as rpms climb to keep making more power with rpms. But you're doing it with a tranny that can take 300ftlbs reliably and I'm doing it with one that'll take 240.
actually on the later cars the target boost and wgdc tables are dictated by the req torque table, with one of the axis being "requested torque" (on the boost control tables) so it is able to be set up like soviet is saying.
Alright ladies, new things to come as soon as the tax season rush is over with Fab9.
Old turbo system is REMOVED. No more bottom mount GT3076r. In it's place I'll of course be running our new Fab9 EFR Side Mount Manifold setup paired with a beautiful EFR 7163:
As soon as the first 7 orders are filled, we will slide my name somewhere on the list. We just received enough material to produce 10 manifolds so production has been cranked to 11 - on that topic, thank you guys for the response it's still the plan to keep these manifolds on the shelf and ship them same day. But for now we play catch-up.
Suspension has been removed, turbo system has been removed, intake mani has been removed, FPR has been removed, engine harness... IC pipes, oil cooler.. The bay is just about empty.
Seam welding the bay - re-painting it (staying white)
New fuelab regulator (Purple)
New TiAL MVS (Purple)
New IC pipes - going purple
Fuel rail, anodize purple
intake mani, purple
Valve cover and other misc large items going in for powder, wrinkle black
Electric water pump going in to help the rear mount system at idle
battery posts going in to make it easier to charge/jump the car - the XS power battery is side mounted and tucked away.
New TEIN Suspension - we're going to start with 9k/7k setup and see how it responds between track and street use.
New innovate gauges
New Whiteline end links
New Keyless RFID push button start (leave the key in your pocket)
