There's plenty lol



I'm pretty proud of that IAC valve body on the blower. It just came out great. I haven't even technically used it yet

Oh also in this picture is pretty much the whole LS ignition coil retrofit. The messy wiring is just a temporary harness for testing. I'll make a nice tidy one soon. The coil mount plates on the valve covers are water-jetted. The stands that you can't see I made on a CNC lathe. The enclosure for the output module board sitting where the ICM goes was pocketed on a 2-axis CNC bridgeport mill. The smoked lexan cover water-jetted.

current news


I just got some bigger injectors (for the 3rd time on this car). Even with an under-sized throttle body and the biggest pulleys, this churns out more airflow than the m90. In my logs I'm seeing maf values like 1000hz higher for the same rpm at wot. I don't bother with the g/s calibrated values at this point because my whole tune is scaled so they are not real life numbers.
Anyway with 80lb injectors on E85, I max out on flow in the upper 5000rpm neighborhood. So the car feels really strong up to that point and then I have to let off or throttle down boost (which I can now do thanks to the boost controller) But the bottom line is I'm held back by fuel.
I got a set of injector dynamics 1300cc (124lb) injectors. So now we will see what the fuel pump can support... I have a feeling i'm going to be changing that too.

Those injectors look HUGE!
Sounds like the pursuit of higher performance is like a game of whack-a-mole with a mallet made of Benjamins. gavel

They're actually smaller. The bit above that metal clip is just an extension neck so they fit this application.
So now I guess I'll install them, tune, and determine where I start seeing fuel pressure start dropping and keep it below that point until I can address that.
