  1. VMP TUNES

    I sure wish E85 was even moderately close for me to try. I think I would really like the torque increase.
  2. VMP TUNES

    It does look better. But still only about a 2% increase. If I translate that to acceleration that means I get from 3000 to 6800 rpm about .1 secend quicker. Nothing I'll ever feel on the street. Might a see a little at the track though. Also the preloaded 93 tune from sct always was a very...
  3. VMP TUNES

    I did not go to a dyno. I did data logs on the same road with all my tunes. Then took the Data time to go from 3000 to 6800 and charted it. Virtually no difference and vmp always a little slower. Vmp and Pbd also used and was tuned for an 18 airbox. My original suspicions held true. A stock...
  4. VMP TUNES

    I have a 93 VMP tune on a 16 GT. I have done MANY data logs from 3000 to 6800 and then pulled the data into excel to graph. It is always a little slower then stock. I then got Pbd. No gains over stock. I actually put back to stock with a pedalmax. Like it the best this way.
  5. Is my bolt-on tune worth it?

    I did hear a few issues with the pedal commander. I had one. No issues but I like the knob much better with the pedalmax.
  6. Is my bolt-on tune worth it?

    Honestly on my stock 16 GT I got more enjoyment with stock tune with pedalmax vs Pbd or vmp tune. The tunes added very very little if any acceleration then stock. The only real diff was it felt fast because of better throttle response. But with the pedalmax I can tune it to the amount I want or...
  7. Switching Tunes at the Track

    Keep us updated on your findings. During my datalogging of stock, Pbd, Sct preloaded 93 and Vmp showed virtually no difference in acceleration from 40 to 100 mph.
  8. TSB 19-2026: Aluminum Panel Corrosion

    I used a barrel sanding drum on a dremel for the underside to get rid of as much as I could find. I used the acid 8 and spot paint over all that too. Fingers crossed I keep it under control for a few years. I did this to my Infiniti G35 years ago and worked for the next 4 years I owned it.
  9. TSB 19-2026: Aluminum Panel Corrosion

    I've had good luck with sand as much away as needed and down to clean aluminum. Touch up fully with acid 8 self etching primer then top with duplicolor white which matched perfect. I wet sand and polish so it's Un noticeable.
  10. Acceleration test (poor mans dyno lol) of multiple tunes was interesting.

    I took a quick look at that thread and love what you guys are doing with the VCMscanner. My experiment was much less of a coordinated effort. I sort of just after the fact though maybe could see some interesting stuff pulling data into Excel. 2 things you mentioned that I did change just lately...
  11. Before and after tune drag times

    To check the differances powerwise on my tunes I did a 2500 to 7000 rpm run a couple times with each tune the same day at the same spot. I then took the datalog data and made charts from 3000 to 6800 to see the time difference. This was on a 16 GT all stock except for the VMP and PBD tunes I had...
  12. Rented an Eco-boost...

    This is actually pretty much what is going on for me. In general I think most turbo cars give that all at light throttle nothing up top accelleration. From what I have seen in datalogs, at low throttle the turbo is still allowed to push in a lot of boost which is eccentially just adding more...
  13. Rented an Eco-boost...

    The race video was just a reference to the torque a little ecoboost can have in the lower RPM's where alot of us drive our cars daily. The chart was just a chart I saw awhile ago of a place that tuned both and the torque of the eco up to 4500 is pretty damn good. In reality I drive daily between...
  14. Rented an Eco-boost...

    This is the type of torque I'm talking about Ecoboost in Pink. And yes the GT does have ok torque as yours and other graphs show, but all graphs are WOT. I just don't drive like that daily and I don't race. A few times a week I'll go full throttle here and there for the smiles but driving around...
  15. Rented an Eco-boost...

    Actually you are right, the Ecoboost and any number of other Turbo cars, are the part throttle kings. It turns out 98% of the time I drive my car I'm at part throttle. The GT sure is pretty fun flat to the floor but I miss the effortless roll on power of the turbo cars. Thats fine if you and 99%...
  16. Rented an Eco-boost...

    I think it is probably your safest option. I had a CPO 100000 warranty so I didn't risk that by tuning. I was at 60000 when I sold. My co working is at 140k and running like new yet. He is not tuned either though. It REALLY seems so hit or miss on the ecoboom. Some tuned, some stock and usually...
  17. Rented an Eco-boost...

    I First got my Eco in 16 because I wanted to get out of a high strung Audi and the GT was 10k more with a daughter in college. All it had was an intercooler. Then 2 years later and of course wanting a GT I sold my motorcycles and saved a bit and started the GT search to trade the Eco in. It was...
  18. Model year 18 and up F150 manifold VS GT 350 Manifold

    I'm afraid that I will feel the same way even with the truck intake. I have had a few Turbo cars in the recent past and really miss that torque. My god the roll on power of my TTRS was just so amazing. 3 years of owning it I would still say Holy F^&** when I would roll on from 60 to 100. I just...
  19. Is it possible to have a slight pinging sound but no knock in Data log

    I used to have an Eco. I have a 16 GT now. I hear it on all the tunes. Vmp, Pbd, sct preloaded 93 tune and bone stock tune. It's very faint and very uniform volume and frequency. No knock sensor activity. Only about up to 3000 rpm.
  20. Preloaded tune Question (SCT LIvewire TS+)

    No problem. I did a bunch of data logging pretty much just for fun. I don't race so doesn't really matter if one a touch better. I tried k&n filter and my active exhaust opened and closed with all the tunes. Imported the logs into excel and charted from 3000 to 6800. On average they all worked...
