Should we discuss:
1. How they all swear by "dumb" knock boxes that don't detect detonation except where you tune them to detect it

2. How their customers think that forged pistons and stock rods are the correct way to build motors because "all i need is a little detonation resistance" (ironically the first intelligent thing they've ever said)


Sometimes I cry at night.

Just in case anyone was on the fence regarding Tom's intelligence:

I'm pretty much dumbfounded that people are running 200+whp on superchargers with "5th-injectors" and still have running vehicles. I know Tanner is doing this without issue but that defies logic for my pea-sized brain.

If its on a 1.8, I'm not that surprised. I've seen some pretty ghetto **** hold together for periods of time that defied logic and physics. The 5th injector, while it is a shitty bandaid, isn't as wrong as say....an AFC.

I would still be curious what the IATs were instead of the EGTs since only one of the pair induces the spontaneous fracture of ringlands.

I am running larger injectors, 315cc/min, as well as the 5th injector as supplemental fuel. Not the most ideal setup, but it works.
Also ask which FFS kit uses 315cc injectors, and 4gph of water injection for me.

If he's running the water injectors at 200psi rather than the 100psi that their 2gph rating was made at, he'd be getting closer to 8gph overall, no?

And if I recall the thread here correctly Hustler stomped his *** on the straights... and did major suspension/alignment corrections shortly after.

Yeah, I couldn't let that one slide. Tell us how you really feel though

I let that go about as far as I reasonably could.

Well, if we can't talk sense into Tom and the followers, at least we can accomplish something by getting every derelict, misleading thread closed.
