The call of “more power” is strong… omnipresent. I have held out for nearly two years (although I harass my tuner, Sam, much more frequently than that). Eventually my passion overpowered my promise and I ordered in a shiz-ton of new upgrades. The excitement is definitely overpowering my shame (just kidding… I have no shame).
After the installation was finished I consulted with Sam who explained how everything should work. He gave me a slew of cool tunes (he said I could use the 93 octane w/ methanol tune and it should be fine- more on that in another post). We filled the meth tank up with a couple gallons, added in some water (16 oz / gallon), primed the pump, installed the recommended new tune and Dagan and I took her for a test drive. Wow. No issues out of the gate. Hoses stayed on. No explosions. I wasn’t 100% sure what I was experiencing. And then it hit me: the top end of the car’s power band was a monster. Normally the car would be losing some oomph around 80 or 90 mph but with the new turbos and meth it just pulled and pulled. It was like being on race gas… all the time. Suffice it to say I was pretty impressed. Obviously I haven’t logged any data or measured the acceleration at this point but my butt dyno was stoked. What’s crazy is that that there’s still a ton of power left on the table.
More to come!
