    Waiting for kit to come in mail and have some questions for the ones with the 18 and 19. (132mm throttle body, id1050x, fore return style fuel system). How much psi are you getting/pushing with 93 and e85 with stock motor? Going with the 93 tune when I first install and standard belt and pulley that comes with this kit.
    I want to go ahead and order the other pulley so when I do go to e85 soon after, I'm not going to just pick up a more hp with the same pulley that comes with the kit. I want the max, but want to be as safe as possible.

    I’m using the 10 rib w/ 20 lower and 3.87 upper. It made 15psi and 750whp on 93. It pulled timing @7100 rpm so we drained the 93 and switched to E85. After a couple of tanks, I switched back to 93, added Boostane to 100 octane and did some logs with my tuner. All good! Went [email protected] that way. If you’re sticking with 93, I’d keep the boost at 12psi or less. My engine is stock except for OPG/CS

    On E85, you can push it as far as you’re willing to go. Your fuel system will support 1200whp. There are guys making 1000+ on the stock bottom end, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Mine made 880 on E with same psi. Just more timing. It’s not really a matter of safe boost level as much as safe power level

    You’ll need both. The A10 and the Whipple work great together

    You said you blew the motor twice in your 2017, first time running 800whp on E85 , second time on 93.

    There is honestly no ‘safe’ level of power when adding forced induction and essentially doubling the power output of the motor.

    If you read about one page back in the FI section, there is a guy who just posted a video of his Gen 5 Whipple on a Gen 3 Coyote, running the stock Whipple tune, only been running a couple weeks, and in the video he uploaded, he asked for advice on a loud tapping sound coming from the motor, and it certainly sounds like he has spun a rod bearing already.

    What I’m getting at, is I hope you have a contingency plan if the motor in your 2019 takes a sh#t, the same as your previous 2 motors. Sounds like you caught a lucky break getting to trade your 2017 in with a blown motor.

    I hope your luck changes for you with the new car.

    A lot of issues I'm betting are user error.

    when running high hp, you definitely want to allow the engine to come up to operating temperature before beating on it. proper cooldown is good too. I see guys start up their cars at meets all the time and rip on them within minutes.
