I hate you.

On another note, I cant believe you didn't immediately do timing pull logs to tune your meth system and check everything as soon as you installed them. Shame on you. You could have blown sky high.

and on a 3rd note, how was putting those brass vortex cut distributor things back in the jet base? If you say not too bad im going to interenet punch you in the face.

Ive followed this thread and every post of the last BT thread. The amount of knowledge and work you guys are doing is amazing. I commend each and every one of you. I also follow your build threads. Even though I cant afford to go BT I follow all of this in excitement to see how far you can push this platform.

The amount of work that you guys have put in the past few weeks is pretty impressive. If I ever get to the point I can go BT I will be in here to pick your brains. Please keep up the awesome work.

you have been immortalized in post #1, haha.

I wish I made a build thread....guess my instagram is my build thread, lol.

and where in South Carolina?

i have a p3 gauge so if the MAP sensor maxes out, it won't tell me anything past that.

yes.

i want to run e85. the only thing is if you can run 30+psi on pump gas i don't see much benefit.

I find myself fighting the urge to part out and get a mk7R and insta BT it soon as the necessary support is all there...like fuelling and so forth. I find myself thinking and planning like a newb tho.

Okay all i need is a BT, custom manifold, fuelling sorted out, tuner who says they can give me a file to start with. Maybe slap an intercooler on there, re-apply my meth system and wham done....LOL.....would never be that easy.

I'm only K04 but I have tested E25, E35, E45 and soon to be E55 this week. There is a definite advantage to an E85 blend, the car idles smoother, throttle response has picked up tremendously, mid-range feels impressive, burns cooler, exhaust is cleaner, and this is all on a standard 93 file. On the 100 octane file it has eliminated the partial throttle correction factor (higher load) when on the highway in overdrive gears where the meth is not spraying.

You really need to get the analog boost sensor

when i do this again it will be something pre-2000 and rwd. hopefully an e30/36 or miata.

when 2020 rolls around and every single car on the road is turbo, we won't matter much anyway. as long as you're not driving something with a boxer motor, the playing field will be pretty level. imo there's no use buying the next big thing to hit the same figures. i saw in the k04 vs thread that this guy raced a big turbo ford fusion...

i just don't see why. kind of like how i asked earlier if injectors do anything other than allow you to run more boost on pump fuel. i thought e85 was the same thing. i figured it would allow us to run 35psi but if apa is doing that on 91...i think i'll be ok.

i had it just never installed it. now i have the eboost2 and that gives me actual readings. in most cases they are pretty close but sometimes at partial throttle the p3 will say -10 while the eboost2 says 0. i was surprised but it makes me wonder how the ecu compensates for that kind of differential. or maybe pre and post throttle body has just that big of a delta. idk.

Could be effected by the throttle plate for an instant

Assumption - vacuum on the oem MAP has to be an interpolation of the TB plate because its pre TB, it cant give you an accurate vacuum reading when it doesn't read the manifold.

I didn't see any different "peak" vacuum readings after I installed the analog sensor...Essentially what you are saying I would think it would take "time" for both sides of the throttle valve for the vacuum to equal out after the throttle valve is closed...if you understand ehat I am trying to say

Edit: for instance if you were 2 gauges 1 in the manifold and 1 in the TBP you would see full vacuum on the manifold gauge before the TBP gauge however brief it may be
