So yesterday I get a wild hair up my ass to try out some E85. I have been thinking about doing for about 6 months now. I finally got tired of spending 15 bucks a gallon on Q16. So I finally go the galant to about 700whp on Q16 @ 35psi. I had some fun with the car and drove it around killed some cars on the freeway, and thne drained the last 2 gallons of Q16 out of my car.
I simply put in 5 gallons of e85, went to my fuel map and added 30% across the board. The car fired right up, I still need to do a little bit of work on the idle but so far it idels pretty well.
So on to the tuning. I dial in the 0psi part of my map and get the AFR's inline. After that we switch to 10psi, which is as low as my wastegate will go. I dail the AFR's in on that. Then we start cranking up the boost. We get to 19psi, and without making any timing changes from my Q16 map the car is making 492/359 on VDR Dynojet Avg.
The knock on the car is really good, the car has yet to pull anytiming. I do still need to add some more timing. I think that I can get almost 400ft of torque at 20psi. I just need to get a little more agressive with the timing. The car pulls awesome at 19psi, and I am at 65% duty cycle on my 1350cc injectors.
So I will richen up the AFR's currently about 12.5 I am going to get into the 12.2 area and add a ton of timing to this car.
