Opensource of course.

And I probably won't hit 300whp since I plan to stay on 91oct for simplicity/practicality/long road trips.
I'll be shooting for 260-270whp and 300wtq.

My goal with it is tons of lowend/midrange to make it VERY fun around town and daily driving.

Just watched the dyno pull on the other thread, your car sounds sweet from the video.

Thanx man
Hopefully getting re-dyno'd on March 13th at a local dyno day. By then I plan to get this MAT correction crap figured out and hit that 300whp goal of mine.

Drove it a bunch of times after the dyno and each time it behaves GREAT on the street and afr is exactly what I want it to be: 11.5 in boost.

Now I just need to get it to replicate that behavior on the dyno.

Reverant is working on a firmware fix for the AIT heatsoak issue and if that works out, I'll just flash in the new firmware and should be all good....

A bit more timing, a tad more boost, and a dab leaner afr's and voila:



Still need to lean it out a bit more to be at 12:1 (its mid 11's now) and I think I'm done.

2-4* more timing various places (20* range over 6k which resulted in that nice little bump), 2-3psi more boost (at 16-17 now), and afr in the mid 11's.

The car feels GREAT. So smooth I just can't get enough

Elevation is something like 100-200ft over sea level IIRC.

Vids? How does the turbo sound when spooled at that psi? Does it have a high pitched sound?

Trying to get a friend of mine to send me vids.
Turbo sound changed when I went from 7 to 14psi, but everything after that sounds the same. I'm not complaining, it sounds AMAZING

What's weird is in the dyno vid it doesn't sound like my turbo makes much noise, which is completely the opposite of how it sounds in real life. When it spools its loud as ****, and drowns out more than half my exhaust/engine sound. Its music to my ears

I'm working on getting some good in-car vids with a decent camera, so hopefully I'll be able to show you guys what I'm talking about.
