Saw your car on IAG's Facebook page. So I guess the motor is broken in and you got the final tune along with adding a an Aquamist kit. Can you provide any further details? Also, any chance you could post a dyno graph?

Sure no problem

I attached the graph. Uncorrected!

So details... its an Aquamist HFS-4 kit running a Howerton engineering 2 gallon tank in the trunk. Also, I have two 1.0 mm jets on the exit of my IC.

Jump in WHP was amazing. Feels like a different beast. Jumped from 493 whp to 553 whp.

60 whp jump was just from retuning with methanol?

What do you have in terms of fail safe features? Were there any reservations from the guys at IAG about using methanol?

The first tune I got was rather conservative. I know people throw that term around... but I think Jorge wanted a second tune for the build even if i did not make changes or go with meth in the future. He didn't say that ......its just what I think.

I think the gain was a result of a combination of a more aggressive tune and the 50/50 mix injection.

There are many fail safes built in. Most of them kill the boost and retard the timing in the event of a failure in the system. I don't know all the details to be honest. I do however know , most people recommend the Aquamist system because of their fail safes.

This is only my opinion however , I think IAG prefers e85 or race gas. That isn't to say that they don't like meth injection. I just don't think it is their first recommendation. I chose injection because I don't have any e85 stations nearby and race gas can be annoying. I think if there were more stations near me I would have gone with dual in tank pumps and e85. Either way my ride is a ROCKET!

Actually it was more than a 60 whp jump. The 493 whp was corrected. Uncorrected it was 478 whp. The 553 whp is uncorrected.

I am a little confused on how such a jump was done as well. Maybe it was the process west intake manifold but im just guessing. I have heard it really starts to shine with more boost.
