Probably 50+ but since i'm running open loop with no lean burn mode there really isn't a point.

And lol @ support and backup, i'm the guy that prototypes all the new parts @ the shop so there really isn't need for much help. There is one other engineer here that is building pretty much the exact setup with small changes like intercooler setup and exhaust though. He has better tuning software and an extra vtec solenoid I'm jealous about.

Joe @ Locash racing is taking all the tuning responsibility. He is really good @ what he does and hasn't said no to any of my crazy ideas yet, lol. The tuning is going to be a pretty involved process with both dyno and street tuning to access and fine tune all possible load ranges.

The fun part is doing things that haven't ever been done before.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg, trust me


70 mpg or die modding

In for results, for sure... I don't remember, have you done any aero-modding to your car?

Along the way, you should release your tuning results and maybe some good maps that other people can use as a baseline for their cars.
