What I had to say is it will make even more power with a proper tune.
No I did make a compliment which is rare for these type forums. You have full understanding of this and seem to have gone through the hoops and bounds of this type tuning.
All the other so-called experts are asking he run low 12's into the high 11's for air fuel ratios which is completely absurd and explains the constant, Help I need tuning, which is always the same recommendation of into 12's and 11's.
Fuel type, octane, density of the air, outlet temps all kinds of goodies along the same lines will detemine what the air-fuel ration is. No one can say what number is the magic ones yet they all try.
FMUs do not work, they vary within the rpm realm your running then add that to rpm depenant boost and you'll have rich ares, lean areas with the whole rpm realm to which the motor runs. Its not and ideal arrangement, simple as that, like Ive said before a bandair approach.
Oh and you have to love the , those numbers arent impressive shit. Non aftercooled 8-10 h.p. is the normal addage. He made 50+ horsepower more on what we ASS/U/ME was 6 PSi, but no gauge, thats well within the normal range. It cut out at 4800 for a reason not yet found. His first run months ago was cooler and the air more dense and certian mods worked with the NA factor that didnt and were advertised they wouldnt. Now its 2 months later it hotter out and air densities thave fallen, what would those numbers be before when it was NA now without those mods?
He's at the max the fuel can run without bandaids for fuel addage, it has a minor ping to it at high rpms and I know with 100% certainty he could add a water injection kit, add a little more timing and be 100% completely safe making a little more power than he is now.
You guys seem to forget one important little issue, its a base kit and he made numbers dam close to the OTHER base kits for a cheaper amount, ease of installation and has minor prolbems just like any other kit. ALso this is brand new and hasnt had the years the OTHER kits have had which still have these problems that should have been taken care of by the maker. This kit isnt done yet 100% fool proof but the owner responsible for its making is now taking that info we can return to him and do something with it, something no OTHER maker has done to date!
