I used your map as a "limit" for mine lol. As in, even though I'm built and running e85, I still didn't want to run more timing than you


BTW a vid from the weekend:


Put about 10 cars or so on him.

Looky what FINALLY made its way to my house





Both excited and nervous about working with a completely different system. I know its a piece of cake for many here, but I've never touched MS before. Hopefully its not going to be a nightmare like the adaptronic was when we first got them due to them being SO new and no one else having them.

I'll see what power level this setup puts me, if its over 300, even only a bit over, I think I'll be happy.

Then I'll go from there. If I'm going to upgrade, I'll upgrade both the intake mani and the exhaust mani and shoot for 400.
Seeing how your dad has a Tig and you are getting more experience with your Mig, we could work out a direct replacement mani that's just tacked together. If/when. Great setup and looks badass!

/\ THAT, is an excellent proposal. I will absolutely take you up on that when the time comes. Thank you sir




Also minor update:
Developed a small water pump leak (as described in another thread) and had to pull the pump again Re-did everything this time with a thin layer of sealant on the gaskets and all is well again.


This DIYPNP is great. So far I've spent less than an hour of actually fiddling with it and already my startup and warmup are on par with the Adaptronic. With a little more fine tuning they'll be perfect.
Everything else about it is great too: easy to use, tons and tons of threads and documentation that is easily found and accessible making my life easy

So far I am 100% satisfied with this ecu and doubt I'll be switching to anything else.
The Adaptronic was good. This unit is GREAT.

Not regretting making the switch at all yet.

Now back to tuning this ****

Wait until you use tuner studio for your fuel map, then you will really be loving it.

In for videos of this thing running on the ms now.

I don't even want 25psi much less need it.
Will be going up to 18psi to match my name though

Hoping for mid/upper 300's on 18 with a good amount of dyno time. Anything between 300-350 will be gravy though.
