    Some good numbers. I wonder how the car will do with Protune for E85. I see you were at Speed inc for dyno runs, do they have an AWD dyno too? I used to buy a lot of parts at Speed when I had an 01 Trans Am.

    Some notes from the datalogs.

    My timing across all maps takes a hit at very similar RPM points, 4,400 and 5,800. Possible hardware issue that could be tuned out?
    FMICs and intake temps have a huge impact on results.
    This car has a lot more noise in the timing corrections than my old car. Possible be tuned out?
    There is a lot of power left in E85.

    For those trying E85, I would highly recommend you testing you E85 to ensure the %. I had originally tried a mix and the e30 map just before christmas and when i logged was seeing 7-9 degrees of pulling. I went and dumped in more e85 to compensate and was still getting ugly logs with cylinder one showing a timing curve of around 0 throughout pull. So I babied that tank to empty as it was obviously piss. I then went to a new station and tested it before putting it into my car today. It tested out at E80 and as you can see, the timing was much better. I would love to see no drops, but those above dont scare the crap out of me like the 7+ I was seeing.

    Yea, they were incredibly helpful at Speed Inc. No awd though.

    Bad gas was from gas city in Romeoville. Good gas was from Road Runner on Roosevelt in Lombard. Road Runner scares me, but tested to be 80% which I think is good being a winter blend.

    That is where I have always drove to get mine. I used this pe station in Elgin and my car stuttered like crazy!! Half engine light every 2 minutes. Filled up with 93 numerous times every 2 gallons that went out. Wasn't happy so I couldn't agree more

    Couple quick notes about all of this and some of the comments Click here to enlarge

    - He asked for something conservative. We have more room to pull more power and more tq across the curve on pump gas.

    - On e85 we have made over 430whp and over 500wtq on stock turbos with e40 and e50 mixes (still not going all out as I like to leave margins between the final tune and "all out").

    - On e85 even on AWD in Denver during a recent tuning trip I took out with AR Design we made 400awhp and 500awtq. That car felt BEAST even at 6000ft altitude on a humid day.

    More to say but things just get misconstrued anyways so I'll leave it at facts Click here to enlarge

    Happy New Year everyone!!!

    Ha, yea, I didnt post these like I was going for some glory run. The 93 numbers were a nice pick up in power and a much more civil throttle map. Its going to be my DD map and its plenty powerful enough for legal speeds. The e30 maps are for fun and sure have a kick.

    I also really like how the mods smoothed out the power delivery a ton. So much smoother now.

    Here is a comparison of temps. The stage one stock FMIC was the very first dyno run of the day so the car had been sitting for about 15 mins while being strapped on the dyno. The E30 Helix run was the 8th pull of the day (with 5-6 redline pulls not being recorded by the dyno to let the maps adapt) and the highest power pull so the car would have been heated up the most. I was giving 5-10 mins between pulls both sessions.

    For folks with Cobb, what's been the gains they have seen going e30 to e50?

    Much more consistent timing for me. I always use E60 for good measure, since the gas quality varies. Also, my car is very timing sensitive compared to others (even my last n54 car).
    700 and change
