Another quick update. Motor is in, just a few more loose ends to tie up and should be good to go for breakin and wastegate+pump tune (22psi+91 octane)

Sorry for the delay guys. Had to replace the oil cooler for safety and parts take some time to arrive here. I'm at the mercy of the shop when it comes to the schedule. Anyway I pick up the car tomorrow.

Just going to do a base tune on pump+wastegate pressure for now as I miss my car and just want it back home. If things are feeling good I may throw some e85 in the mix and see. Reality is the 1100cc fic's won't be enough for the 3.0xtr on a 2.2L on E85. So I'm going sort the e85 tune after I get some 2150cc. Money is tight at the moment (ER race longblock ain't cheap! Also just got married+bought a home).

Will keep you posted, thanks for your patience

I hope you plan to run speed density. That MAF is going to be a serious restriction most likely. Car is looking good though.

2150cc is pretty overkill for that turbo. A 1600cc would be just about perfect IMO. Looking forward to your results.

I'm staying MAF for now. When mrfred sorts his SD integration I will convert. I don't want to be reliant on a locked tune as I'm personally not comfortable tuning SD/VE tables. The reality is SD can be troublesome during startup and warm up when the weather fluctuates as it does in Vancouver. Unless you have lots of experience or spent the time and $ having a vendor really dial in the driveability. People seldom talk about this on the forum but it is a reality I've seen from cars tuned by reputable shops. Alternative is a locked vendor tune and I don't like my ecu locked. When money is freed up I'll take a drive down to ER and discuss fitronic+sd conversion because a car that starts up and drives well at low speed is just as important to me as maximizing the setup in terms of power.

Yes 1650 would be more appropriate size wise but I rather have the 2150 so I have room to grow if needed. Same reason I went 4" ETS core vs 3.5 and so forth. I've owned this car long enough that it makes more sense to just do it once and be done instead of continuously upgrading because it needs more fuel/strength/flow etc.

Just doing break-in miles at the moment with city driving, then it will be 4th oil change and switch to synthetic. First 3 oil changes and filters looked great...nothing else to report.

MAF is fine on that car. Also doesnt require constant tuning when winter comes around.

A good tuner doesn't require constant tuning on speed density. Car drives better, and 550-600hp+ the MAF is a restriction.

I dont know I only have tuned cars in hot weather. On MAF you can have great drivability and yeah SD is better for high powered cars but for under 500 whp I dont dont think its really worth it.

I did a 6262 on maf at 38 psi and made a healthy 680 whp. I think it would have made 700 on SD but owner wanted maf.
