E85+VF48 feels like I have a big engine under the good. The spool is pretty much instantaneous. I'm liking the 9.0:1 compression pistons. This combo works well. If only someone made a quiet intake. The Cobb SF intake I had a while ago felt great but was too loud. It would have made more power and response over my stock airbox I have now. Response and boost recovery is faster now with the tune and it enhances what my Synapse Engineering DV had brought to the table.

Your numbers seem a bit low but I could be wrong. We have relatively same mods, both running e85 but I'm putting out 330/420. What kind of dyno did you have the work done on?

Mustang. Stock STI is 200whp on this particular dyno. I've read about Dynojet are 10-12% higher reading and it calculates to the numbers you have, and it feels more powerful than what my numbers indicate.

At a certain point, especially since you're planning on upgrading, you're better off keeping it conservative anyways.

I've always done better not pushing smaller turbos to their limits. And just keeping things down tuned a little bit until a bigger/more efficient turbo goes in.

My Buddy Club rear adjustable lower control arms have arrived! This should fix the rear roll centers after lowering, camber, and endlink height. I guess the JDM cars have an auto headlight leveling adjustment built into the arms.

The rear lower arms are installed, but now the toe is out. These cars are really sensitive to toe adjustments. The rear end felt too loose.

I'm liking the smooth running engine on AMSOIL 0W40. I was running AMSOIL 5W30 0W30 when I first bought the car. After running Mobil 0W40 5W40 (ran rough), Redline (smooth but felt some reduced response), I've liked the AMSOIL the best.

The alignment went well. The rears were out of wack, but the tech was able to dial it in to my specs.
FR camber 2 1/4
FL camber 2 1/4
Toe 1/32 in
Caster 7

RR camber 1 3/4
LR camber 1 3/4
Toe 3/16 in
The car feels stable and steering feels more responsive. I can't wait to try driving it in the mountains again.

After driving around, I noticed that the bumps I normally drive over are well dampened now. Before, the small bumps would feel like I hit a deep pothole and the ride would feel bumpy. The rear lower arms had the same effect as the roll center kit I installed up front. The rear feels planted and stable.
