I'd run a 12psi wastegate spring.

6 channels of timing would be eye opening for stock people running tune only on 91 octane. But for those with 93 and E85, ********* and intercooler, maybe meth... it's redundant information. Am I knocking anywhere today? Nope. But let's keep logging guis just in case.

I guess it could be beneficial if you like to run the car at the limits timing wise. I'd prefer to add airflow with a turbo to that option though.

Anyway, looking forward to updates here, especially in times. Nobody ever gives times. Maybe that's because the ET isn't awesome or something, but on this kinda thing trap speed and 60-130 are really the panty droppers imo.

Roads are too cold/slippery to test much but 20psi @ 4000rpm and 24psi @ 4200rpm is pretty decent spool for this 6466 if you ask me.

How does the power feel while the car is spooling?

I'm really torn between RB's or letting FFTEC go crazy on my car.

Wow that is awesome spool. Please if you have time get some videos of it on the road, i'd love to see. Also any plans to redyno now that you can up the boost more?

Not a video guy, sorry. But I do plan to get back to the dyno soon!

It's slow while spooling. So being a manual you really need to downshift in to a gear that puts RPM > 4000rpm to get it moving quickly. Proper gear selection becomes much more important than with the stock turbos for example.

I've been running it on E20-E40 lately and keeping meth flowing.

Was able to do a little more dyno tuning today. At 25psi at relatively low advance it's doing 620rw. Would probably be 640rw with normal advance but was working on fueling stuff today. @ 26psi the car has a fairly consistent miss. So up against some limit there. May need to close plug gap further.

Hopefully its just in need up a smaller gap and isn't running into the exhaust gas "echo". Although fftec did say ~650whp is the limit they were shooting for on the Bottom mount and I'd imagine at 26 psi you would be right around that #.

What about one step colder plug? I can imagine at 700whp they still need to be another step colder haha.

Yeah I come from the Evo world, my last car was a Evolution X with a bigger turbo on a 2.0 motor. I kept modding and chasing power on my evo and never got the feeling of acceleration I was after, even though my car ran low 11's.

I guess what I fear is having that lack of power feeling back, the way torque hits on the n54 is so satisfying.... After 4k these single turbo setups satisfy that thirst for torque differently than a big turbo evo I wonder?

Wish I could experience RB's / Single turbo first hand before purchasing!

It's all a matter of perspective. But I think the 58mm single is probably the best of both worlds. The RBs are great down low but the lack of top end power leaves you wanting. While the 6466 at least to me is outright nasty up top. But I need more down low to really make the car "fun" on the street.

This is great progress and I am watching these updates closely. The problem I see though is all this power is still reliant on the bandaid that is meth. Bolting up a big single and tuning it is worth nothing if you are stuck with this ****ty meth crutch forever because we don't have a real solution for fueling. Would be nice to see focus put on that as I think it is a MUCH more important hurdle for the platform to overcome. 100% e85 tuning should be the end goal for all of these tuners/mod companies.

this is where the superiority of the N54 engine platform still shines over the N55 platform.. it takes more to make it using the N55's...
