    That is cool. I'll be working with Brentuning to come up with a nice daily-driven friendly map that has a bit of ass to it compared to my tired stockers. ;)

    Looks good Tony. Any guess on how much these numbers would change for the 19t compressor and unclipped turbine option?

    I can't speak for other people but it's not an all or nothing thing for me. Driving a stock turbo car is a lot of fun, ripping around stop light to stop light. Having huge top end is fun too; that...

    I don't think you're getting that much of a bump in power without losing a fair amount of spool. I am going with 19t/unclipped for the best possible spool at the expense of ultimate output. Although...

    For IAT control meth is better, for in-cylinder cooling (helps with pre-ignition) water is superior. Meth is fuel; water is not. The balance of those things will determine what you want. All else...

    Agreed on nearly all fronts, except the pure water atomization. This is a function of nozzle design and proper incorporation into the system. As it stands, it's more than possible to have pure...

    You can settle this pretty easy by taking a log that has both time and rpm, say a 3rd gear pull, doing a couple quick calculations to turn that into a time vs speed, and then just visually observing...

    You have many facets to injecting water/meth. Going the WMI mix route offers a few things:

    1: IAT reduction when you spray
    2: Heat absorption during the compression stroke
    3: Fueling
    4: ...

    Detonation isn't really a problem with a sane tune and E85, but preignition can be for sure. Higher water concentrations are more useful for controlling preignition. Lots of research and articles...

    Things warming up expand and can close tolerances. Could be valve stem seals if it leaks when it's cold and gets better when warm, although in many of the burning oil through exhaust cases it ends...

    Looking good. Clutch is ordered and will go in soon, just in time for some new troublemakers. Love it, can't wait.

    Some of you may appreciate this. Was doing some push presses and got a PR. It was one of my last strength-only goals.

    Make sure you didn't leave the IBS sensor unplugged. It's small and easy to get it tucked behind some wires and not see. Mine had an extension connection about 6" up from the negative terminal that...

    Yeah, I think it's worth noting the difference between oil properties (which are above nominal still) and still getting crap in your oil. An oil change is cheap and easy. I am not on a super strict...
