Default Log review - 08-27-2019, 05:57 PM

Fuel is around E30 mix. First two logs are in map 5 last two are map 1.

I installed a VRSF 7inch FMIC. Not doing as well as I thought it would, IAT getting up in 120s, and it doesnt seem to be helping my low timing. Any suggestions? I have 2 step colder plugs to install. Would have liked to go just one step but they are no where to be found. Will 2 step be ok?

It's not the best intercooler but anything is better than stock. IAT is going up but it's not out of control. So I think it's fine for what you're doing.

Let's try a stronger E85 mix though, like E40.

2step NGK plugs are what we suggest!

Thanks for checking it out Terry! I will get those plugs installed asap. I really wish I could run on just 93 octane. Good E85 can be hard to find around me. Is my timing typical for what I have going on? Do I have false knocks? I can tell my car doesnt run as well as it should.

Even if good e85 is tough to find- positive is e40 is a relatively low mix, you just might have to add more ethanol to = e40.

Looks pretty typical imo, a tad more e85 should smooth it out

The closest true E85 is a good 30mins from me. Everything else at Speedways are the 51% min ethanol. They use it for leftovers in the trucks. They can dump 87 in there which can be lower octane than 93. So I much rather run only 93 octane.

I really wish I could know why my timing goes so low. It drops below 1 on some pulls.

You can just run 93, nothing wrong with that.

But just know that the lack of octane isn’t going to allow you to run a more aggressive timing profile & likely why as you go through the RPm range, timing drops off.

If e85 isn’t convenient which for a lot it isn’t, some use methanol, others bring large fuel containers to minimize trips, lots of choices. You just need to determine if more performance is worth the added effort for you.

I installed my new plugs but didn't get a chance to do another log. Defiantly helped some. Attaching a picture of my old plugs. They had about 10k miles on them. Wanted to know if they look typical for other cars.



Cant get picture to post here is a link to imgur hopefully that works https://imgur.com/a/hwBmajY

E40 in the tank this time, new logs to be checked out please. Thinking about running at the drag strip in a couple days. Defiantly want to be sure I am healthy before I go.

Looks okay to me.

Keep an eye on your trims, look like they’re trending up a bit (40s)

Timing looked okay as well- did you decide if you will be continuously using corn?

Next tank I am going to fill up with just 93 and see how it goes. What do you think my next upgrade should be? WMI, fuel pump or inlets?

Really depends on your goals for the car.

Inlets will be the most labor intensive of the 3.

Best 1/4 mile time I got was 13.226 @ 107.6mph. Everything was going great until I decided to turn off reduced 1st gear boost. Once I did that my clutch slipped....

traction can be difficult. As power increases, you'll want to invest in some solid sticky tires if you plan on hitting the drag strip

Tire traction is not that much of a issue with the 285 wide summer tires and electronic limited slip on a sticky well taken care of dragstrip. Clutch is whats giving up though. Know of any stronger clutches I can upgrade too? I heard the 550i clutch is stronger but I dont know if strong enough.

Lol little bit of overkill and a lot of $$$. I am reading about using the 335is/550i clutch and will probably go with that. FCP has a kit for $226.

I know many guys that go 335is clutch & next season are swapping in a different setup.

Yea I know what you are saying but if a $1400 clutch vs a $226 one is going to be my power limit I will be ok with that.

Where are you seeing a kit for only $226?

You are right sorry for confusion, but for $340 aint bad.
