    I 100% agree with this mentality. Think back 2-3 years(or more) what this extra fuel, even if it wasn't much, would have done for us back then. It would have set records at the time and most likely inspired people to go full on PI and we would have made much more progress. Nobody wanted to make hardware without a fueling solution.

    Of course not that's basic turbo knowledge that everyone who can read a compressor map knows. All I stated was that he did a great job explaining why you shouldn't do it when he wrote that response to Slicksilver 600whp rb thread. Its a simple concept, plot points on the compressor map, compare maps, pick turbo that best suits your needs.

    We got this all the time when running out of of fuel while testing the shotguns, we even were getting it consistently testing Stage 3 this last time around when pushing big power. Its extremely dangerous for the motor, the last thing you want it to do is go into open loop when at that time. It would drive our AFR's dangerously lean, and was doing it consistently above 7K as we were trying to spin the new motor to 7500+, we never made it up there because of the Open loop, the car would go lean misfire, and drop me into limp. We would even get it much lower in the rev range if we really ran out of fuel. I have no idea what actually causes it, but it with us it seemed to be directly related to getting near fueling limits, as soon as I put the PI on it went away as it was dumping fuel up top. This has nothing to do with NLS, or shifting we would see it at random RPM's, and on single gear pulls pretty consistently.

    Sorry man, please try again. I've asked sticky to increase this limit and he's being a cheapass. I have lots of messages which I want to archive since they are full of great information (BB Flash, DCT Swap, etc)

    At this point I feel like everything is speculation to a degree. If this turbo can fit and make 800+ WHP with better spool, then I'll be interested. If not, there's always the tried and true turbos ready and waiting.

    We are working closely with a company that developed a PI system for the new F-series platform, it has full sequential injector control etc. They use 6 individual EGT probs for each cylinder while testing a TB style system, they found that indeed 1-6 tended to run hotter EGT's than the rest due to the intake manifold design. This is the case for Charge pipe injecting, and TB injecting. Is it a big deal, the answer is a resounding no. Why? This system is very simple, yet effective for the people trying to take a little strain off the fuel system while not going for full on kill mode power, if you want to do that up there are other options on the market to suit your needs. This is seriously a sweet set up for guy running say stockers, or hybrids looking for around >525WHP, and 100% E85. Kudos to Steve for getting it done so quickly and elegantly! Nice work!

    That's a nice looking pull there. Now to get this consistently. I hope you figure it out.

    I'm fortunate to live just south of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. There are tons of benefits of having the AFA that close, but one of my favorites is graduation day and the Air Force flyovers leading up to it (and during it). Here are some pics I've taken over the last couple days from my back deck - lots of the Thuderbirds and a few of the B1s as well. Not car related, but I thought some folks might enjoy it. -Rich Here are a few from other sources as well that show different perspectives:

    I think they'll figure out a way to fix it, but Pat just refuses to believe that it's a hardware issue for some reason. If it were a software issue or some other issue with our platform, EVERYONE with the Level 10 build would be experiencing it, not just me. Terry never had this issue on his car.

    Well this turned into an embarrassing pissing match. The EFR turbos are great, they are a little more fragile than Garrett based turbos simply because of their material choice on the turbine. On the other hand it is NOT going to be some magical combination that comes out and revolutionizes the N54 platform. We have seen plenty of 9180 results, nothing shows it being the best turbo in that size range, or blowing away the competition . As far as over speeding turbos, it took "Brian from TFT" to explain why you do not run compressors off the compressor map? Can "Brian from TFT" also explain to us why engines have redlines, and why we cant just over spin them hope they do not blow up? Maybe "Brian from TFT" can also explain to us why it hurts when we hit our finger with a hammer? Is "Brian from TFT" the guy that plays Captain Obvious for the Hotels.com commercials, if not he would be a good candidate.

    Thank you for the reply. So you are using a jb4? Was your backend flash a custom tune?

    That's not maxing it out that's killing it. That turbo will not last long at those pressure ratios. Brian from TFT did great job at explain why you don't run your turbos to ridiculous pressure ratios that are off the compressor map. I haven't seen any efr9180 dynos other then the ones on the evos. There's not that much info out on these turbos since very few people run them

    Ever since I added a back end flash to my car, I haven't had it happen once. My car used to do it almost every fast shift before then.
