Default Devil's own kit installed

So, i got my WI kit installed over the weekend. A buddy of mine fabbed up a very ballin' bracket to hold the pump. I also relocated the washer bottle to the firewall. I will snap a picture of the nozzle placement later today. I drilled and tapped the intercooler outlet.

Haha, I've gotten comments on that before. That's the coolant reroute hose that begi sent me. Why it says "LOL" I have no idea.

Yeah, I removed the stock washer fluid pump and the bulkhead fitting went right in.

Is it not a gravity fed pump?

I LOLed at the LOL hose.

I do like what you wound up doing in terms of mounting the pump. I'm thinking that since I've freed up some space over there, I might move mine up from its current location in front of the right front wheel. I've always been a tad nervous about having the water lines running through harm's way down there.

Did you relocate the fuse box?

Sort of. We did away with the stock bracket that holds the washer bottle and fuse box and made a bracket to go in its place.

So, i pulled a LOT of fuel out of my map, upped the boost to 18psi and put in 28* of timing and holy ****. This car is MUCH faster. I probably picked up 40whp at least. No sign of knock. The car is scary fast now. Roll into boost and lose traction. I cant wait to go to the 1/4 mile and bust out a mid 12's pass.

Would you mind posting the timing map that you've worked so hard to perfect? I'd like to see how much more you've been able to run than mine (which I still have not dyno-tuned.)

Haha not exactly perfected. I basically typed in 28's in all the cells above 140kpa and 4000 rpm.
I will post it up later.

No ****? Well, I've clearly got a ways to go then. If I ever wind up being back home for long enough to get out to the dyno I found, I'll see just how far we can push this bitch. Still a bit worried just how far I want to go on the stock rods.

You go until they break, then rebuild it, faster, stronger. If nothing else, it will give you a new reason to play with cars.

So, this is what it looks like when someone just guesses at a spark map.

That's really impressive. I had no idea water injection would allow you to add that much timing. Just out of curiosity, how many psi were you running before the WI? I know it says "stock motor" in your sig... but, I have to ask, this really is a stock motor right? Congrats on the gains!

I was running 14psi before. it peaks at 19 and steadies out at 18. Yes. It is the stock motor. 87k miles never had the head or oil pan off. I am on a quest for 400whp on the stock motor.
