Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX – Race gas calibration

On a hot & humid June day we proceeded to calibrate this vehicle.  The challenge of tuning a vehicle in the day in the south is always that after every run the car needs to be left alone to cool down. This eats up valuable tuning time, but that is just the name of the game.

During the summer we usually try to move all of our tuning to the night hours of the week.  In this case it was not possible and it needed to be done on a Saturday during the day.

After getting the car back from its initial mapping on the new turbo set up, the power was not there for the desired boost level. The client took the car back and inspected and sure nuff there were 2 items that needed attention.  Due to those 2 items it hindered the power output on that given day. Fast forward to today every issues was fixed and it was time to see what it will really do.

Mods were:

Wiseco pistons, Pauter rods, Magnus Intake manifold, FIC2150cc, Walbro 450lph, Precision PTE6466, Kelford 274 camshafts, ECMLink ecu and Fuse Hot Foot Unleaded 117 race gas.

2002 WRX Haltech Platinum Pro – The Journey

This vehicle to us is like our teenage child. I have been helping this car gets faster and faster for a while now.  We first started tuning this car since it was on Cobb Accessport MAF tune.

Client wanted more power as all of us do, so the logical step was to go speed density and right away seeing that Haltech supported this model with a PnP solution we opted for that.

Right away tuning the car and staying on the same PSI level from Accessport to Haltech we picked up an additional 20awhp from just switching tuning systems.  After that there was no looking back.  We managed to make the most power to date with the following mods below:

EJ257 fully built bottom end with #CPPistons #GSC Valves, meth injection, #Haltech Platinum Pro, 850cc injectors, FMIC, #KillerBee Header and AMR60R turbo.  28psi tune was done on 93octane and Meth.

After the tune a nice GaugeArt display was added and the keen aspect of this device is that it interconnects directly to the Haltech Platinum Pro and then the user can see a good range of sensors from the engine.

Part2 – Going for some stability & more power

Apart from trying to find more power from this forged motor we also decided that coilovers were needed.  After a little wait from ISC Suspension to ship us out a unit for this WRX it finally arrived.  Ricky was quick to get this unit installed into the vehicle.

We switched to a bigger rebuilt turbo from AMR and that did not pan out last time it was on the rollers.  So we decided to go for one of the bigger stock frame turbos out there in the market. In comes the XR Black 82HTZ Ball Bearing turbo from the guys at Forced Performance.

June 15 2017

The FP Turbo is finally in the vehicle and Ricky stopped by to show us how it turned out after some percussion persuasion had to be done to the surrounding items to make the turbo fit correctly.

A little shake down to make sure there are no leaks of any kind and everything is connected properly and she will be ready to see some Fuse race gas and the awd dyno……Stay Tuned.

 

On a warm southern Louisiana night, we proceeded to calibrate the WRX to see what this FP Black would do. We were not disappointed as the turbo spooled quicker and was way more aggressive than the ARM60R turbo was that on there. Race gas from #fusefuel unleaded 117 was called in to do the business. What a great fuel I have to say, the more and more I tune with it the more I truly respect this fuel.

Below is the video from last night.

2015 Civic Si Supercharger – FlashPro

Had the pleasure of helping a local client with his tuning of a #kraftwerks supercharger kit on his Civic SI.

Was told that the kit was used and The owner installed himself.

After the install of the kit, the tuning was all that was left to be dialed in.

On a given night we proceeded to calibrate the vehicle.  Made some solid gains, car runds solid now.

Special thanks to Tinh for trusting us with his ride!

2011 Lamborghini LR570-4 (UGRTT)

Had the pleasure this Saturday to test a client’s 2011 Lamborghini LR570 AWD.  This was not an ordinary Lamborghini as this one was fitted with a Under Ground Racing twin turbo kit.

Client called me on Saturday morning and asked if he could jump on the rollers today to see what his investment was putting down to the ground.

The test was done on ambient conditions of 96F, 37% humidity and 30.03 baro

4th gear was the one we tested the power delivery of the vehicle, shifted the 6AT thru the paddle and proceeded to make the test.  The test resulted in a very smooth delivery of power to the number of 685 awhp and 706 awtq @15psi on pump.

Carefully backed the vehicle and loaded it on the Dyno Dynamics AWD.

We leave you with the Dyno Dynamics numbers and also the BrandX(dyno jet) charts of this test.

Lastly would like to send special thanks to Mr J.H. for trusting in our tuning facilities and to the guys (Ernest & Dalton) that helped me today with the test.

2013 Honda Accord Sport v6- KTuner

Had the pleasure of once again calibrating a vehicle with a KTuner system.

This time the vehicle that was getting some work done on the dyno was a Honda Accord Sport v6.

In this A/T vehicle the current mods were:

Intake, RV6 exhaust components and KTuner v2

We initially tuned the vehicle back in February, then now the car came back to see if it has gained any more power and the client was just there for current numbers.  As we can not leave things alone and saw some areas in the tune that we could improve on I pulled the laptop out on this warm May day and proceeded to tune the vehicle once again.

Ambient conditions on the day were 78F, 82% humidity and 30.03 baro. Test gear was done in 4th

AS3 AS4 AS2 AS1

Initially back in February we jumped from 243.7whp (baseline)  to 251.5whp with a little bit of tweaking on the Ktuner.  Client came and with a little bit of further tweaking the calibration on this past day we managed to reach the numbers you see on the charts below:

JVasquez13Accord_DD

266whp was the best pull and with a 274wtq numbers on the Dyno Dynamics.

JVasquez13Accord_DJ

This chart is the numbers using comparison mode which is a feature in which the Dyno Dynamics simulates numbers to what they would appear if a vehicle was tested on a Dyno Jet.

Apart from just numbers the over all driveability was improved since throttle response is by far more crisp and better MPG was also achieved with the KTuner on board.

2016 Volkswagen Golf R – Baseline

Client contacted us to do a dyno test (baseline) on this vehicle.  Client will be adding some more parts soon enough and wanted to see where he is starting at.

He recently bought it used with just an intake and APR stage1 DSG / reflash on the vehicle.

Ambient conditions on the night of the test were: 77F, 82% hum. and 30.03 baro

Test was done both in 4th and 5th gear.
