The Forge wastegate has been installed. Sent a few more thirds gear logs over to Stratified. Time to wait and see if it did anything..

So far the car has been doing great since installing the new WG. Haven't made too much more progress since my last post but it looks like things are coming together. As of right now the car is on the 3rd map Stratified has sent me. I was told there is around 6 revisions so it looks like I won't be on E85 for a while.

Anyway I changed the oil early to Motul 5w-40 and picked up a set of new wheels/tires for winter.

Next season I'll be taking it out to the track/mexico to see how she do.

Did a few pulls vs. my buddys evo 8 and the car kept up neck to neck. After removing the spare/mats/tools etc. I pulled ahead slowly and he's a very good driver. This car is going to be a blast on E85 for sure.

Test hit to log and see how the car does after installing ECS Motor/trans mounts and dog bone insert/mount. Still a bit more work to do but felt great, 0 knock.

Heading to the dyno next Friday to finish up the tune on E30/93. Opted to pay Alex for extra dyno time because i'm trying to go to the track this season and tuning two fuels over a 6-8 month period just isn't going to work for me. Alex knows his stuff but I'm not a fan of the process, nothing against him or Stratified the car drives/performs great.

Anyway I will update with Dyno info once it's finished.

If anyone is interested in buying a GTR mine is for sale: https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...3098/overview/
