I don't really care to be a cool kid at 33, 34 at the end of the month, but at least I'll have a vband on my turbo to downpipe connection. Something tells me if this trend continues to grows, next year someone else will be selling these for cheaper than Tial can build them for. If I need it then, I go for it but for now, I'll just be happy seeing boost.

I'm supposed to speak with UPS again today about cutting a check for a new turbo.
They hid some stuff on my back porch one time.

The Evo's have us beat on making crazy e85 power.

how much torque do you make on which dyno? If its a dynojet, you're going to have to make 275+wtq to sit at this table.

IIRC, he's making 220rwtq (240hp) on a dynojet with 9psi....

I can tell you right there, thats on the driver. If he didn't get a signature and DR'd the package, its his ***.

And the newer versions are pretty dammed forgiving with all the TC and what not. I've been to an EVO track day were there were quite a few competent drivers.

I just meant that a great number of people on the EVO board run e85. I haven't seen anyone here or on the pointy board running it consistently.

:wonders why Hustler doesn't have an e85 map for *****:

I would wonder if its avaliable where he fills up. I live in the colony, but work in frisco, and drive to dallas 3 or more times a week. I never see e85 when I get gas, but even if I did, since I don't have the ability to switch tunes on the fly based on flex fuel sensor on my MS, it doesn't matter for me.

I don't need e85 because I hit MBT in every cell on 93...and I'll probably hit it next time when I tun on 91octane.

People keep telling me to put race fuel in the car, but it won't get anything because adding spark angle does not increase output after MBT is achieved.

Did you pull this off tuning by hand, or have you been on the dyno.

I sometimes get hit in the face by the obvious.

dyno. I'm trying to get a deal set up with exatorq in Garland. He has a Mustang dyno and he's the only guy in dallas who I can call to ask about using the dyno who will let me tune.

Let me know if you want to tune it. you better bring me some bad-*** beer though.

According to their price sheet the smallest they offer is for the 28 .64AR, unless they have an updated sheet no luck for you.

I emailed them recently. They do not make and have no plans to make one for the 2560.

Tim, I might be in for a kit. But I mean a kit: turbo, manifolder, flanges, bands, the works. And I expect it to align to my cat exactly where/how my current dp ends. Basically what Hustler has me thinks...

Would that work?

I should have listened to Savington and gone with Tim back in early July...now I'm fucked because I beat a dead horse and can't get back to the track event I already paid for.
