Got back from the dyno yesterday and wanted to share my results with you guys.

22PSI 93oct PUMP GAS
I'm only going to use the 93 octane tune if I don't have access to E85. We did not want to push the limits of 93, so we stopped at 22psi.



23PSI E85 FUEL **Fuel Pumps Were Maxed Out @ 23PSI**
I was hoping for a more on E85 since that will be my primary tune, but the poor little Aeromotive pumps couldn't keep up. Fuel pressure started dropping at 800whp, so we stopped at 23psi.



31PSI 100oct. FUEL
We couldn't get any MS109E on such short notice, so we ended up using VP100. The VP100 did not disappoint and we were all very impressed by the numbers on 100 octane!



My next move will be to upgrade to a well designed 3 fuel pump setup, so that I can really make use of E85.

WOW!!! That is so freaking IMPRESSIVE!!!

The power and torque curves are so smooth! I love how the torque curve is fairly flat after 4500RPM!

Did Topspeed use the COBB unit to tune your car as well?

Very nice stats. I just have to ask how it feels to head to a track (or drive on the street, although I don't condone street racing) and just know that you probably won't come across a car faster. Ego Boost!

What's your DD?

Oh just a GTR that makes 800 and pollutes as much as a civic. Nothing too great.

Wow, the torque curve is incredible. If stock turbo cars could have a torque curve like that they would be truly great. Impressive numbers!

Thanks for all the props guys! It was a lot of hard work, but it's finally come all together. Major thanks to Doug and Cicio at TopSpeed for their support, parts, and tuning!

OEM Dunlops. They did not even spin on the Dyno except the first run when they were cold!

Yes. Doug used the COBB AccessTuner software and the COBB AP.

That's one of the great things about the GT-R. It can hold this power (current E85 tune @ 23psi) and not break the tires loose. Sometimes the VDC will kick in, but it can be turned off. I just leave the VDC in race mode which allows a little slip.

I havent read the whole thread but those dyno results are beyond comprehension!

If I had the money, I would have my M3 as my DD and build a GTR like yours for track duty.

I hope you have some serious brakes on that bad boy!
