If you want to break 500 with a 4b11, your best option is a T3 kit with a precision 5858, or the new Gen2 5558.

Honestly i don't want to go with a big T3 Kit but i may have to. The goal is to have reliable power on stock block for awhile say 450-500 on 100 octane then when the time comes turn up the boost and have 550-600 with built motor. There are so many options out there its just really if i want to go the cheaper way first (MHI) then upgrade later on or just bite the bullet and go big now (BW EFR) dial it back to reach that 450-500 then later on turn up the boost. Only money right

100 octane costs a billion dollars at the track. I used to use 100 at Thunderhill before E85 came to the bay and my fuel bills for an event where in outerspace.

E85 is soooo much better than 100 octane, not only for octane but cylinder cooling and the price.

E85 is a pain in the *** to transport, you have that right, but you already trailer your car to the track, so what's the problem?

btw, there is an E85 station an hour from Thunderhill in Woodland.

Ok, i know in the past E85 had ill effect on fueling system over time, like gumming up lines and creating sludge or something like that. It was a log time ago though so i don't know if it is true.

Thunderhill 100 octane is about 9.99 a gallon super expensive... Just found that they sell E85 in sunol super stop like 5miles away

I have not read to much on E85. I think it would be a lot to monitor such as the ethanol in the fuel to make sure its safe for the tune your on. So many other different variables.

How many gas cans do you have to lug around to get thorough a day at ThunderHill?

Hasn't really been a problem here in California. Reference this thread I created six years ago: https://www.evolutionm.net/forums/e8...years-e85.html

If you get flex fuel rom and hardware you don't have to worry about ethanol percentage. The ECU interpolates your tune based on the percentage.

On normal 3 mile I bring 4-5 and basically have the car on E60 (E79 is about the highest you get on average out of the pump here). You can also track on something like E50 and not have to bring as much E85. E50 would still be better than 100 octane.

Well it’s been one year of running this setup and I gotta say this power is still perfect for th street. Car still pulls strong and between the anti-surge housing and the dump it makes some pretty great noises. Since swapping this turbo/manifold I haven’t done anything else to the car except change the oil. This really is the ideal street setup in my opinion. It’s reallr a shame the X didn’t come with this turbo from the factory as it seems better suited for the 4B11 than the stock turbo

I've been following your build for a while now. Thanks for the update. My next and final mod would be the MHI, MAP manifold and a down pipe. I made 361/375 on a mustang on E70 last weekend and would love to taste the MHI at some point next year. Thanks

What manifold did you replace it with since it is cracked? Any reason why it could be cracked?

Evo X OEM exhaust manifolds are known to cracking near or on the collector. It was replaced with a stock replacement MAP cast manifold
