congrats on the 10 sec. time slip!! I was looking at your stats and it looks like you make about 11hp and 12ftlbs torque more with the e85. Mine was dynotuned on e85 but not on pump gas. Are you happy with the e85? The big problem I have with it is availablilty. I have to travel at least 20 miles to get it. It does seem to keep the oil cleaner and smell better burning though.
Again, congrats on the 10 sec. run. I sure wish I had one, but I need more converter to get there.

I made more power on E85 and I am happy with it on either E85 or gasoline. It is hard to tell the difference when you are driving it with either fuel but the E85 is much more tolerant of engine heat. I can hot lap the car on E85 it it never pings, if I hot lap too often on gasoline the car will pull timing due to detonation once the engine heat exceeds 190 degrees.

This is interesting. I have not yet had my supercharged meth/injected stock bottom end 93 6spd out on a road course yet.

Mine is not intercooled, just meth injected with a 4 gallon reservoir holding plenty of meth/water mixture.

I do have the 160 t-stat and re-programmed fans. Coolant temp rarely exceeds 175F.

I have a Casper knock gage on my dashboard showing me what my knock activity is at all times, so I dont need to be hooked up to a scantool or laptop to know whats going on.

I always run BP 93 octane so that variable is constant.

Its weird. 2 (or even 1 degree) more timing (past 4000 rpm) can sometimes be the 'straw that broke the camels back' in getting a max performance run, or triggering the knock sensors which immediately choke performance.

My knock sensors usually command way more than needed spark retard.

However, this has saved my motor before on the time my meth/water system malfunctioned (I got that fixed and fail-safed the issue I had so it can never happen again)


Remind me what motor and blower/ boost you are using again,,,,

Very nice - that is definitely moving. Very nice 60' on drag radials.
Are you auto? Your MPH tells me that you are. Just curious.

Congrats on that 10 second pass !

I would suggest a bit more stall , something in the 4K area.
