  1. Fuel filter underhood

    Where you locate it shouldn't really make a difference. Honestly the factory filter location isn't that bad, you jack up the car, zip off a couple of fasteners to remove the cover plastic and it's right there under the driver's side. Even has quick connects to swap it out. That's where I...
  2. 60-130mph times for boosted cars

    Again, it's crude because it's HEAVILY dependent upon traction for the 60-130. The trap speeds for 1/4 times are a much tighter group when it comes to variability with traction. It still gets a vote, but the results for 60-130 can vary wildly depending on traction setup. My own car has seen...
  3. 60-130mph times for boosted cars

    I think they'd be willing to do it with the iron clad understanding that it only comes with doping the shit out of the fuel every time and all the time. Which is why again, it's generally not been seen prior to the Gen4 is that most tuners/owners will just skip to E85. I think a tuner would go...
  4. Best return fuel system

    I'll lay this out as simply as possible. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being least concern and 10 being highest concern. A stock power/torque level car with no traction upgrades: 1 Moderately upgraded power/torque and no traction upgrades: 2 Stock power/torque level with significant...
  5. 60-130mph times for boosted cars

    The debate around 60-130 times and horsepower is even less accurate than 1/4 trap times. For starters, the typical 1/4 traps are longer (a larger sampling) and just long enough to where wind resistance hasn't come into play in a dominant way but long enough to get rid of some of the traction...
  6. 60-130mph times for boosted cars

    Compatible with the OE PCM. Yes, you'll lose your Roush tune. No reason why PCM wouldn't work as long as it's offered on your year/PCM model. I'd contact them, it's a little more expensive than a typical device and tune, but once you've purchased the up front stuff, the rest of the revisions...
  7. Best return fuel system

    That's my point, doing the test/proofing logs for the tune isn't going to reveal an issue, especially if it's done on fuel levels above 1/2 tank. I suspect if someone has the power/torque and traction to really push forward at a decent acceleration, they're leaning out and just don't realize it...
  8. 60-130mph times for boosted cars

    The world is going to get very muddled now with "93" on the various levels of fuel conditioners on the Gen4 cars. You'll see deep 5's on highly doped 93. Of course all the stakeholders will point to how this proves the Gen4 is superior to the Gen3 and older. Be interesting to see what a max...
  9. 60-130mph times for boosted cars

    Get PCMtech and get the best of both worlds. User inputted flex fuel. Run E85 when it's available and then switch it up when it's not.
  10. Best return fuel system

    In fairness, I don't think many people experience the car dying under half a tank. But the idea that it doesn't go lean under hard acceleration.......do you log every single hit? So if it was going lean how would you know? I personally think more guys risk their motor without even realizing...
  11. Forged Induction and Spark Plugs

    Probably the single biggest cultural difference between Western Civilization and Asia. They simply do not subscribe or adhere to the idea of intellectual property of any kind (including patents, trademarks, brands). There's a reason that China has more people of genius IQ than the entire...
  12. Forged Induction and Spark Plugs

    NGK are one of the more common knock off risks. There's plenty of videos that you can watch that show the extent that the faux companies will go to in order to make them nearly impossible to spot the fakes from the real mccoy.
  13. Questioning Gen 2 voodoo reliability

    So you installed a blower and didn't load a tune revised for it?
  14. Questioning Gen 2 voodoo reliability

    There's too much information missing, but any tuner that would be willing to tune on 93 but not on E85 seems suspect. No telling what caused your engine failure, but rest assured, things being equal, an E85 tune (tuned for say E70) is going to be MUCH safer at the same power level than a pump...
  15. Questioning Gen 2 voodoo reliability

    I think you'll find that most people's experience is that proper tune v proper tune, E85 is significantly safer than pump gasoline. You can verify it's quality (which you can't do with pump gas) and it has significantly more knock resistance and thermal benefits. We can only speculate what...
  16. 2 part question

    If Mike is correct (and it's likely he is) the first solution is to exclude the TB gasket and simply use a light smearing of RTV or gasket maker and then very EVENLY and consistently snug the fasteners down so that the throttle blade is as centered and concentric as possible and there's no off...
  17. Boost by Gear with OEM Logic

    I'm still very unclear on how the pedal position is rescaled (or not rescaled) when limiting the throttle blade to preemptively limit the torque available in that gear. Again, depending on how this is done, it could be crude or refined. If the desired load limit for 2nd gear is only 50% of the...
  18. So the new gen7 whipple numbers are out........

    Sunoco 260 is almost $11/gallon before shipping if you buy it by the drum. So yeah, yawn city. In other news, if you don't take showers or wash your clothes or run air conditioning or heat you too can reduce your electric bill to less than $30/month.
  19. So the new gen7 whipple numbers are out........

    The drivetrain losses through the A10 and the MT are well documented. They run about 12.5% for the MT (on anything other than giant donk wheels) and about 13.5-15% on the A10s. With that out of the way, a 4k lb car (with driver) trapping at from 138-142 (lethals run to beefcakes run) are...
  20. Boosted gen2 engine headgasket failure opinions wanted.

    Just get the new cometics, buy some ARP 11mm studs, follow the instructions explicitly and you should be good for north of 20 psi before you start any real head lift concerns. It's very important that whomever installs the ARP follow the instructions to the letter. Don't try to outsmart them...
