    I'm using lava wrap from thermal zero and gold foil on the VC from DEI

    If my car wasn't in the resort parking lot right now I'd show you how good the Polished looks. I just did my this week. Your going to love it. 25psi by 4150 on a MT. I'll post results and pictures after the half mile this weekend

    The most you can probably hit on this motor safely is about 500-525 on 93.and that is with actual timing. Something you could run day to day. Tony made really good power on 91 no doubt but that isn't a tune I'd run daily. I can easily hit 20-21 psi on the 6466 with out a single degree drop at a 11.3afr and 10* timing but after that ignition and Afr has to go. What's the point? Supras don't have the delicate pistons we do. If it wasn't for di we'd be screwed. There's a certain comfort level I wouldn't cross

    The higher compression is even more reason why we should be able to make the power easier ;). With the advancements and better understanding in tuning, the performance crowd has been leaning more towards higher compression for the big turbo, pump gas cars. It seems to be working very well.

    I suppose as long as the fuel trims and timing don't flatline between shifts ;). I see your point though..

    Dosent 2jz have a 8.5 compression ratio or something like that... we have 10, that's a big difference..

    People who can afford these cars don't lease them unless it is for tax purposes for a business. Also, you seem totally ignorant of the cost to maintain these exotics. It isn't cheap. So what exactly needs "breaking in" on a turbo? What reciprocates?

    It is disappointing that exhaust scavenging can't be tapped as needed. I really think progress can be made with engineering an electric setup. There are pumps that can handle the load. With the correct resistors and pressure switches, it could help longevity. Hell, you could still even have a use for the fancy new exhaust port.

    Yes I expected at least some vacuum. Like 1". Wishful thinking. Maybe with a smaller exhaust or a lot more HP it would function better.

    I wouldn't mind going there once a month but since I wanna run 100% e85, that 55 gallon drum wouldn't last me too long... I almost cried when the guys at the stations told me they weren't going to carry it anymore.

    Yes I checked the orientation and depth, they were fine. So I just capped it. No big deal.

    Taking down a sport bike in a car is hard. Taking down an S1000RR in particular is incredibly hard for a car. A tuned (tuning done by BrenTuning) one? Well, that is an even taller order and you will need something like this GTR putting out 1300+ wheel horsepower in order to have a chance. The first run has the GTR set to about 1100 wheel horsepower. The S1000RR impressively makes short work of it. The second run is a rematch where the GTR gets a better start and is able to hang in the first couple gears. The result is the S1000RR again pulling away up top. The GTR has enough and ups the boost to kill mode so it is pushing roughly 1300 wheel horsepower. This run is amazing as the GTR hangs in and the aerodynamic penalty for the bike begins to show with the GTR slightly pulling up top. This is a stupid fast GTR and a stupid fast bike. Both are incredibly impressive but it just goes to show how much horsepower is needed to pull a tuned S1000RR on the highway.

    I was under the impression, even with PI, a good, clean idle should be closer to 15:1. Same with a clean, low load cruise? I recently moved mine to the leaner side, with what seems to be positive results. Nothing that really comes up measurable on a log, but after I removed my cats, the 14:7 ratio had a rich smell to it. Also with a rougher feeling idle/cruise. Using nothing but the most accurate butt meter, idle smoothed out after it was leaned out to 15.2:1

    Someone could always try a needle valve with boost as the motiv gas for the eductor.

    30 minutes and a $4.00 toll wouldn't be enough to make me remove it all if I already had it set up and tuned but it would definitely make me think twice about going that route from the start. I'd probably look to get a storage tank and make a trip once a month or something for a couple 55 gallon drums haha. Good having a pickup as a back up vehicle. That uncertainty does weigh heavy though. All this time and money spent to make some serious power in this great platform to be pulled away basically overnight... ugh

    Am I the only one who thinks this is absolutely insane: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mikehayes/silk-road-ross-ulbricht-dread-pirate-roberts-sentencing#.hxapwqJODQ People like Jay Z brag about being drug dealers to sell records and this guy set up a marketplace and gets life in prison? Murderers, rapists, child abusers, etc., often do not get life and get the possibility of parole. If people want to take drugs, let them. You can't tell a woman what she can do with her body, abortion for example, but you can tell people what substances they can or can't put in their bodies? It doesn't make any logical sense. I guess this is a lesson that if you want to sell drugs, which he wasn't even doing he was providing the infrastructure, you better be a pharmacy. It's fine to get people hooked on xanax, oxycontin, painkillers, antidepressants, whatever, as long as the doctor gets their cut, the pharmacies get their cut, and the government gets their tax cut. The system is so fucked up it is beyond belief. Some kid killed four people while driving drunk and only got 10 years probation. This just boggles my mind.

    Everything looks great! I'm actually in the same boat with the e85. Was gonna go port injection and kick the meth habit but the 2 local stations stopped carrying it and the closest one now is at the airport about a half an hour away along with the 4 dollar toll to go with it lol

    Expensive experiment, T even you said before the exhaust venturis are more hype then they are worth. I agreed, we have done these on other platforms at customer request, they did nothing as far as vacuum. If you want to dope your CC mist, etc into the exhaust that's about all its good for. Its not going to scavenge your CC.
