Are you going to make a build thread for the LFX. I might want to follow suit I been hesitant on Turbo vs SC. Your build might make my decision easier. Im not that quick to drop 10k in mods lol. I over think and do a lot of research 7 months still no mods

Good luck with the LFX man! I saw you at CF III and even with a junk tune you were impressive. I hope you have more fun with the LFX.

Going to dyno it stock today then try out the tuning and see how much we can get on a stock car.

Waiting on Rhino to send me the graphs. He did text that it made 249 RWHP stock, but that's all I know right now.

Nope...not too shabby. I figure with a 20% loss, it would be around 258rwhp, and it always seems these cars tend to actually lose a tad more than that (in the automatics)...so thats not too far off.

Rhino had to work on some other stuff Friday/Saturday, so just getting back to it. So far just tweaking the AFR and timing he's up to 262 RWHP. They are working on an issue with the throttle position below 4K RPM. It appears to be limited to 60% which is limiting the commanded torque. That may be because of the intake design, in which case they won't gain much, but if not they may be able to add some low-end power. After that they will do the VVT timing and we'll have a nice 87-octane tune. We'll then do a 93-octane tune once we put in the new in-tank pump (gotta drain the tank anyway).

I bet with the amount of money you have spent you could have by now had a 9 second SS lol.

More power to you though. In for results.

The 91 octant results could be impressive! Stop it Derrick....your going to make me want an LFX. lol. But there is about 0% chance of me doing that....unless they offer Kinetic Blue for 2014....then maybe a 5% chance lol.

But in all seriousness if the LFX can do it, the LLT should be able to as well....but the Bosch is so difficult to tweak. I think this is why I may end up giving IPF my money and dumping Trifecta. They have a 91 octane only tune available, where as the Trifecta tune will still accept any octane. I've read good things about the IPF and that it outperformed Trifecta in an independant test....but that was just something I found on another forum. Hard to say how trust worthy it may be.

Another update. The 249 RWHP was just one pull with the stock tune. The others have all been 235-237 pretty consistently. So, 249 may have been a fluke.

That said, they figured out how to get around the TPS/Commanded TQ issue and it went up to 275 RWHP!!! They didn't say how much it gained down low. Now on to the VVT tuning. Hopefully there's a bit more they can get from that.
