    The power you made with just that upper was just stupid! I'm anxious to see what the LT's gave you..

    it used to be that cheap here in DFW when i converted over in August last year. for some reason it has been between 2.33 - 2.54 here the past few months. still 20 cents or more cheaper than regular unleaded!

    Yep, filling up doesn't make cringe as bad when its only $1.89/gal. I'm anxious to see what kinda mpg I'm getting around town..can't be any worse than my old FC RX7 that ran on E85. We'll see I guess..

    You should be able to reach 700/700, nice cheap price on the E70. Is the price the same during the summer when you are getting 85? In our area the price stays consistant year around/

    Awesome numbers man, That thing is nasty, just a question tho, have you ever thought of going to the single blade throttle body? Just seems like at that boost level and power level, that inlet restrictions may be worth decent power? Either way cant complain with what you have and again nice numbers.

    Yeah. Its crossed my mind, and I agree that it couldn't hurt..basically just have always had better ways to spend what little money I can get together for the car...

    No doubt man i just know twin screws are very sensitive to inlet restrictions ie: why crushers/mammoths/behemoths inlets are so popular, so the least restriction possible and i think you will maybe even see the driveability go up as well as when i swapped the throttle response was wicked

    Drivability now is just so spot on with this tune...I'd be surprised honestly if it even could get much better..

    that's great to hear! that's one thing i really like about TS setups(especially when they're tuned by the right people lol). turbo setups are way more hit or miss with driveability issues....

    Going to get my car tuned soon on e85. I have a temporary motor in it (Stock Terminator longblock) with a 3.8" pulley on the 3.4 Whipple crusher. I'll let you guys know what she hits. Probably going to be a conservative tune!

    Very nice numbers, I am preparing to purchase my entire fuel system upgrade as well and am running a Gen II 2.3 as well, however I have some questions on your setup, and forgive me if you already answered I may have missed reading through the responses...

    What MAF are you running? I am currently running SCT BA2400 and it's pegging, I'm intending on purchasing the next one up, I believe BA3000 (may have part number wrong)

    What is your pulley combo? I am running 3" upper with 4# lower currently running 100 octane race fuel (5.99/gallon ouch!) and made 620 RWHP and 625 RWTQ, interested to see what I end up with when I move to E85.

    I'm looking forward to the conversion, nice to see some good numbers being put up!

    I'm actually running the stock maf with a Mafia actually. No issues as of yet. And as far as pulleys go, 2.75" upper, 4 lb lower LFP kit. With your setup I think you'd be amazed at just how much power you'd make simply by going to E85 and tuning accordingly. The additional timing alone should make you a serious bit more power..

    Best of luck with your setup. Give Ryan a call at Driven Performance (Driven Performance) if you have any questions, he set me up real well.
