    Will it work with the speed perf6rmanc3 plug and play harness?

    Controlling boost in VT is not bad but your goal is to do a load based tune so you will generally not hit the same boost just close to it. The ecu will adjust boost based on the load you are looking to hit. Tuning in VT goes, MafCal , Hit Load Targets / Adjust WGDC, More MafCal, Set Timing "simplified tuning lol"

    Yea im just used to setting wgdc and it generally stays around there. In vt it is like 10 higher than what i set it. I have all my load targets set at 1.7 and im achieving 1.65 generally sometimes 1.8. I just need to dig into how much it lets it stray away from the wgdc and get that closer to 0.

    WGDC is generally set to -100 and +20 so that the ECU can adjust to meet your load requirements with weather and temp changes. You can adjust these if you want but they are safety features and handy for hitting the same power no matter what the climate is like.

    Its on sticky summer tires so i dont drive it in temps below 45-50. So no need for protection from winter.

    Nothing new is really going on with the 6. Its kind of sitting in line behind a couple other projects i have going on. I bought an f250 so right now im trying to get my tundra all cleaned up and hopefully have that sold this next week. Then i have another quick project to finish then its harvest and i wont get shit done on the mazda til maybe mid november. I need to run out the e50 and put 91 in it since its going to be sitting a little while. Im going to start with working on the ls coils. Im going to try and spend any little free time i have to get a solid coil mount setup going.

    Sorry havent been on the forum in awhile, been a busy winter. Some stuff has changed, i really dialed in the 91 tune and am making the same power at 21 psi on the 5858 that i was at 31 psi on the cs turbo. I recently met the guy that runs our local crop duster airport and they will sell me the 101 octane they use for the airplanes. Not sure how much it is but for how little i drive my mazda anymore it doesnt really matter. So this saves me from having to get bigger injectors, and adding the second fuel pump (possibly) and will be much easier to tune and less worries about the e85 being left in the tank. So hopefully if this snow ever melts, i can try it out and get to tuning again. Id like to get 500 whp but we will see, makes me nervous to try out going to 3.5bar with the issues i had before. I also would like to get everything going on the ls coils again but thats on if i have time. I bought a new ktm dirt bike last month so ive been it hing to get out on that too. I also bought a new semi truck and trailer to make some extra money on the side from farming so ill be pretty busy. This summer i also plan on putty molding in my fender flares and getting the whole car repainted again if i get time. I did buy a nice 10k lb two post lift for my shop so it should help some projects get moving along faster. Sorry for the long post, heres a few pics

    Quick question, is the plane fuel compatible with automotive pumps? Only reason I ask I heard it's highly corrosive, there's a $20 per gallon 140 oct getting sold near

    So this fuel is for crop dusters, just high octane unleaded gas. 140 octane is not going to be unleaded and i wouldnt go anywhere near it. Crop dusters have small engines and dont fly very high so they dont need anything really special.
