I have ever bolt on, plus full Aeromotive full kit and FPR. Stock motor, I think Miles tuned it very conservative so my motor will last! 18psi was 379whp on there dyno! Only thing left to do is upgrade my TMIC and work on a nice custom oil cooler. Been holding off on gauges because I don't like the look of having bunch of gauges inside my car, built my car to look stock. Plus my car has only 4,200 miles on the car and have owned it for 4 years! Don't really drive her much, I'm running a Blouch Dom 2.5xtr.

I'd definitely be curious to see what your car puts down on our dyno. I just had a customer earlier today come in for a tune with a DOM3XTR on E85 but he only had 1000cc injectors. The injectors were maxed out at about 16.5psi which made just over 350whp. He will of course be back with bigger injectors so we can really turn that turbo up

Thanks

I guess it just depends ones definition of conservative; 23psi/25psi is liberal to most.

I'm running PE800cc injectors, there maxed out with 18psi! I think my fuel pressure is turned up. I was running a walbro, now I'm running Bosch 044 intank. What injectors you recommend Ed? I know I need 1000cc plus.

Its certainly not super conservative, but its also not maxed out... its just safe enough to be run without the recommended gauges. And again... boost is just one part of the equation when speaking about conservative or aggressive.

You still haven't answered the simple question I asked a while ago.... Have YOU ever tuned an EJ207? What kind of performance do YOU see out of them?

wow nice dyno you are on, I would make that 400whp lol. I'm with you I i think that 18 psi is conservative for the turbo you are running. I betyour car is a blast to drive!!

Ah.. yep that's why you're at only 18psi. You need more fuel in there!

Get some ID2200's and never worry about fuel again!

Ask him if he wants to sell them if they are DW's...
Did my compression check today, all are right at 150psi +/- a pound or two on either end. Would love to go E85!

They're the ID1000's with plug and play harnesses. I know he will be selling them for sure. Very nice injectors in my experience. Congrats on the good compression numbers!

I didn't do a complete tune... just got the car running safely and charged him for 1 hour of work. The customer did not consult with me before coming in for the tune, otherwise I would have definitely recommended the upgrade before tuning.
