You're on pump gas and conservative timing tho. And we still dont' even know what EXACT turbo and specs you actually have.

*edit: even if you have a legit 2871 and not 2860, a 48 trim (small) compressor would put your numbers right around where they should be

Your 200 kpa numbers are right where they should be, if you want more power you need to rev it higher or turn the boost up and have enough octane that it will make it to MBT.

Octane is probably cheaper than the hardware to make another 1000 rpm useful.

Torque was just dropping off with higher revs. Power was almost flattening out.

We only have one e85 station in the entire city. Cool for a dyno queen, or track+trailer only car. But thats it.

VICS manifold, right? Squaretop would make a big difference at those power levels.

Yes. We played with VICS and gained a few HP. I have dyno runs from that too.

I would guess it to be worth 20-30whp on top.
