Can't remember the cost of DSteck's flex kit, maybe $400 plus or minus $100. Install is a breeze. Tuning will cost whatever they charge - couple hundred and up.

As for problems, well, more of a...

FWIW, we tuned 91. Emptied the tank and refilled with E85. 50rwhp gain on the dyno. Simple. Then started tuning for E85. Phenomenial!

Yes, IDJ = Injector Duty Cycle. E85 makes the fuel system act like a hog with the extra 30-40% more fuel necessary to make the energy as gas produces. But you get to run more timing and E85 is less...

When running E85 with the base AGT TT's, LPE twin-fuel and ID1000's I'm running out of fuel toward the top end, 635RWHP, with 12.5# boost on a stock bottom/top end motor. An LPE usually will exceed...

Boost Creep in Longmont. Got 129 more ponies with E85 over 91 - that's a 25% increase in HP. Was only expecting half that so that surprise was nice.

If you have the 3.45 stock gears, then that equates to you turning 7,300 rpms at 60 mph. Hope your "mods" were intended to handle that because that's a whole lot of spin for an LS3.

What I'm unclear on is - put in a tank of E85 and optimize the tune for that. Then if you have a tank of 91 octane, can you tune for that too without messing up the E85 tune >> resulting in having...

That's just crazy. If I crank up the boost, maybe run E85 and adjust to 750rwhp uncorrected, then my corrected to sea level boost would "appear" to be 1,000rwhp.

Now the caveat - the dyno numbers are corrected around 1.25-1.33 here at altitude, so the REAL rwhp is actually 506 hitting the ground for me (not 673, but it looks neat). That would make BHP around...

To clarify: Stock RWHP or BHP

I have a stock LS3 with plenty of fuel. I keep hearing crank up the boost until I reach 600, 650, 700, 750 HP, even 800 HP.

I see that running a stock LS3 with boost can handle 6xx or 7xx HP -...

So, I've calculated it will take 17-19# boost to hit my stock LS3 with in order to produce a real 650rwhp corrected. Sounds scary when I'm at 10.4# now.

I guess that makes sense. Up the boost to obtain the same explosive forces in the cylinders to equate what the car can safely make at sea level. Right?

Any other changes like head bolts/studs necessary? Of course, the right spark plugs too. Or, are you just saying, crank up the boost to produce 750rwhp (with the accompanying (safe) tune)?
