Default RB Turbo's In California - 12-18-2013, 04:47 PM

Any RB owners out here in our terrible state care to share your logs/dyno's I want to see what we are looking at on our awful 91 octane gas.

Also for that matter anyone else outside of Cali that is running RBs on 93 octane without E85 or meth care to share really want to see what these things are doing without having to get the octane benefits from E85 or Meth as a base.

I doubt you will find any RB owner that is running without meth…Will be stupid to run that kind of power without it

I do agree with you its just some people are completely against meth and others are all for it. Not looking to start a meth debate at all I want to see what kind of power people are able to get out of them without feeding them to their potential is all.

No reason to run meth with RBs if you have access to E85 and have the fuel system mods in place to support higher concentrations (>50%.) It would help to have it, but the benefits are not that dramatic at say 60-70% E85.
Totally different story if all you have is 91 pump gas. Then it's a must, else the tune needs to be dialed way down.

I've been running RBs without meth for some time, mainly because I couldn't get a system setup that I was happy with.

In the meantime I was running mainly a 50/50 e85/91 blend.

Not sure of specific numbers as I haven't dyno'd, but with the rest of the mods I have I'm guessing it's "quick". Well it's certainly quick enough to scare myself and most of my passengers, or is that just my driving?


Cool stuff no longer installed.
