Are you putting in two pumps and running your own line now?

no. gonna run the single one. I was having issues with the 465 causing excessive fuel pressure on the return. Found out a few guys were having that issue and it was either hack up my OEM fuel canister or buy a new one. Gave me a reason to buy the Radium haha.

Altitude isn't helping the spool, but I think if anything is going to happen, it will be a good bit more boost on E85. I keep timing low via global timing removal during tuning, so things like this below aren't a complete self destruction.




I'm sure it feels pretty good up top, but certainly more to be had.

About an 80% tune and it should get better once I lean it out, and potentially add a little more timing. Looking forward to a 7,000 RPM log

As of today, im running 24 psi on this turbo on E85 and it just pulls hard. I hated it on pump 91, but its not too bad on E85. full boost at 4800 RPMs. 14 psi at 4300. not too bad for a non-ball bearing turbo thats not properly sized for this motor.

At this point, I want to get flex fuel and then enjoy the car for a bit. Next summer I plan on buying Full Races stock location EFR 7163, maybe going back Top mount.

Been tuning with Yamasho and I am super happy with the result. I can't recommend him enough if you are in the Denver area and want a local tuner. I recently watched a friend get tuned by a well known tuner here in Denver, and I was not at all impressed with what he got for his money. And I'll leave it at that

Oil changed with Amsoil 10w-40 and Wix 57712 oil filter

Took apart my oil filter and I didn't see any metal shavings or any cause for concern. No glitter in the oil pan either.

Been some good progress in the last couple months! Looking forward to seeing how it performs at Street Car Takeover this weekend.
