I wouldn't worry too much about the weight. Torque can take care of that. My GT weighs close to 4500lbs, yet can still pull sub 4 second 0-60s consistently.

Yeah I guess but the C400 has more torque and power and lighter. Hopefully the BMS stage 1 will help, I live in NYC e85 gas is not common around here, that's why I'm not trying to look for performance through e85 or WMI, that's what I like about the ecutek but unfortunately it voids my warranty if dealer were to check my flash counter. That's why I was hoping for the jb4 one day.

I have one couple of miles away from where I live in Queens, but for me I'm not a racer... this car is a everyday car for me locally around city.. just want the power to able to use, e85 to me is more for track or everyday racing which I don't do. But still want the performance whenever I decide to punch it, you know what I mean??

Same with me. But E85 is cheaper than 93 and the car loves it, so I use it. Get a couple less mpg, but the difference between 12 and 14 isn't gonna break me.

Terry,
thanks for your interest and work for the Red Sport! I signed up on the forum so I can interact on this topic. I know you were going to do a dyno soon with the Stage 1, has that been done? On the Red Sport specifically.

Thanks!
Brian

So are internals strong and forged like the n54? I was really looking at the q60. But id like to know if it would handle the power the n54's do with stock internals. Sucks turbos will be hard to swap but i doubt impossible. And hopefully they beef up tranny in a year becuase iv got my eye on this car...

I just don't know on the internals... Other tuners have been leading the way on power with flash tuning so they probably know more about how much power the engine can hold than I do at this point.

Hi Terry,
is the dyno testing completed now for the Red Sport? Can we see the graphs and hear the analysis on your findings with tuning for it?

Thanks!
Brian

No, we have not dyno tested any red sport models yet. A few have BETA units and have reported positive feedback, especially on 93 octane. 91 octane probably not going to gain a ton on red sport.

From what I can tell doing datalogs on them red sport is basically the same platform running more boost from the factory. So tuning potential is similar, you just get more of it stock, and can add less with aftermarket tuning.

Our Stage1 is new product so expect to see more information and dynos coming out in the coming weeks.

Hey Terry I was just reading page you guys made about recommendation psi on Q50 silver sport +3-5psi over stock on good 93 gas.. what exactly is good 93 gas? Mobil gas??

Also if my psi is at +3 do you think I should increase it to +5? I do have the 17 Q50 Silver Sport, running full exhaust and C.A.I

Thanks

Most 93 octane available in the USA is considered good gas... Some countries have 93 and 94 octane that are lower than USA 91 octane.

I think +3psi is a good conservative boost level to run, thus the default. If you are looking for as much performance as possible then learning how to use the laptop to connect and change settings may be in your best interest though.

Is it safe to run at +5 psi in my car's condition? I do want max performance on just 93 pump gas. All I use is 93 gas.. if brand matters I usually go to Mobil or BP

Sorry hardware is different... But easy to sell the old one. JB4s hold pretty good value.

I have no idea. I'd guess it's OK for a silver sport on 93 octane to run +5psi though. Try it and if its not pulling smoothly then back down to +4psi.

Alright I will give it a shot when I get a chance to download the software. Thanks Terry
