Would it be possible to signify which are which on the latest dynos posted by Shiv?
Sure. Blue=original tune, Green=Stock tune, Red=Procede tune w/PWM Meth

We were all a little stumped by the first runs. I even checked for/cleared all codes. Even did a few DME resets and logged lambda. Both bank1 and bank2 were on target and running ~15.x AFR under load. So we definitely weren't dealing with a bad sensor.

Is the windshield cleaner fluid bottle used to house the meth mixture?

BTW, I'm sure I'm not the only one curious about pricing
Yes, we are using the windshield water bottle for the meth/water mix. Should have pricing finalized after the Texas trip.

You're getting the extra power from the red curve by running it lean.
There really is no "correct A/F ratio". But rather a correct one based upon supporting mods/conditions. In the case of the Procede/PWM meth combo, the operating conditions change dramatically: Intake air temps drop 40-50F and effective octane jumps to 100+. So targetting a slightly leaner AFR is perfectly safe and desirable. It's also worth mentioning that dropping AFR targets down to ~12:1 only reduces power by 6-7hp. Most of the power gains come from the IAT drop and substantial ignition timing bump.
