I have tried to be as thorough as possible but you never know...

There are always some bugs to be worked out, but that's expected. So hard to be patient with this kind of thing. You definitely are going all in lol and you have excellent taste it's so nice to see a bugeye done right

Have you considered ditching the meth and running e85?

Thanks for the complement.

For me, it was only one way: don't do it or do it perfect!

I am very happy with the direction of the project so far. That being said, there is a certain beauty in a light tuned car that can be driven and enjoyed everyday.

Interesting you asked about fuel, as the plan is e85 almost all the time: Martini 116 for competition and normal for DD (occasionally/rarely). Meth system is predominantly is for water injection and reducing the chance of knocking.
Also we are on TMIC, so:

JDM water sprayer+ water injection+ E85 chemical cooling

I am really hoping this would be sufficient to get away with a TMIC as opposed to FMIC. I do realize that this is all theory and if this doesn't work, we will do a Process West V mount.

You're never going to get knock with e85 before hitting peak power, so any additional timing you can run with meth isn't going to do anything. Meth cools your EGTs though and will help with heat soak.

I have to track back around a year or so.

As you can tell I have gotten a massive package from Element Tuning, a lot of components are chosen with direct input from Phil.

I understand what you are saying.

- Meth-Water injection was an add on option which would help reduce temp, "theoretically" reduce knock possibility regardless of fuel.

-There was already an integrated map on Hydra ECU, while it was "another" 6-700$, it was another level of safety and capability and I said YES PLEASE

- The car will be used on the limit and with a TMIC. I am really hoping we can control the temps with these mechanisms. I have already spend a lot of resources, getting the car handle the way I want, I would prefer not to have to add weight on the nose..if I can.

Ps, even on my previous set up (EJ207 and stockish power), after only 3 track events, my Tomei ti exhaust has turned COMPLETELY purple. I can use every single safety mechanism there is.

Will post pictures of my exhaust when we start the installation process.

I will see if I can get Phil to add his input as he has been an integral part of this project.

Bare in mind, I am 10000 Mi away from Element Tuning and still I felt more confident buying all my "heart transplant" stuff from them, even with the logistical difficulties we had to tackle.

Haha, I know.

I never order things one by one, only MASSIVE packages for me.

That being said, having ordered pretty much everything Element Tuning sells. I am thinking I might as well have shipped the car to him to build. Would have costed the same but easier as he has built and designed a lot (not all, I am sure he didn't like my TMIC and Cusco mounts) of the package.

Like yours (although a bit less hard core and a bit less prolonged), this has been associated with a lot of emotions. Can not wait to drive/compete in "TBAG" again.
