Hi Terry

I purchased the stage 1 tuner for my 2017 Q50 Red Sport AWD, I already have stillen intakes and catalytic back exhaust with stock down pipe. Can I run 4 PSI all the time safely? 93 octane is readily available in my area and it's what I always use. Also could you provide a link on a video or instructions on how to change the PSI with the JB4 software? Thanks for the help.

Check first post for directions. On the Red Sport with modifications you can evaluate 2psi, 3psi, and 4psi, and see what works best for your specific setup.

Can I run a e40 or even a e50 mix with 93 on a redsport?
Is it rich enough to do so? It seems like it is.
A/f looks to be 11.0
Turned up at 3 or 4psi

Log to make sure you can run the higher E mix. thats pretty much the only guaranteed way to find out.

The factory fuel tables we use are probably too rich for that. The flash tuners lean them out to 12:1 I noticed. Either way I'd keep it at a 30% mix on the Red Sport.

12.1 seems alittle lean for FI, I thought 11.2-6 was ideal ?

Not for direct injection... We run some BMWs in the mid 13s regularly at peak HP.

Terry,

I wanted to make sure I have this correct. Does this look right? Can I share with you a screen shot?

Many thanks - noob to all of this. I can say that my trip to/from Houston at the default +3psi on 93 octane fuel was a joy. I'm looking forward to seeing how the +4psi setting changes things. My goal is to increment the boost safety number by 1psi and then drive for a few hundred miles as a test before increasing the boost. What should I be looking for in terms of knowing when I have reached the limit of tweaking the boost safety number?

If you go too far the car won't pull smoothly as the DME has to pull timing out to avoid knock.

To change the 3psi Boost Safety setting does the Stage1 tuner need to be connected to the car? Or can you use a PC to change the setting without the car connected?

Has to be connected to car with engine and/or ignition on to power up the Stage1 box.

Terry, are y'all still testing the Red Sport? I see you posted the charts including results at 4psi increase. Any issues observed at that setting or things we should watch for running that on a Red Sport assuming we are using 93 octane?

So far so good on the Red Sport at 4psi on 93 octane. But it's too early to draw a long term suggestion.

The JB4 is our higher end tuning system with CANbus control, in dash map changes, datalogging, and extra sensor inputs and outputs for expansion, and tons of extra features. The Stage1 is a simpler, less expensive, and easier to implement system. But still quite effective.

If you do not want to change it from 3psi then no changes are needed, obviously.

There were some questions on the boost profile stock and tuned. Here are a couple boost logs from the Silver Sport dyno. In these logs boost is bank1, target actually represents boost in bank2, and ecu_psi represents boost reported back to the ECU in bank1.

First the factory boost profile:

And the same chart only with the Stage1 requesting 6psi over stock:
