Well got on the dyno Saturday, temps were higher than before ( when Trifecta tune was in ) and barometer pretty close, humidty about the same. The printer was not working so no dyno sheet this session, sorry. The top Hp and torque numbers were also most the same, BUT the low and mid-range on the FSP ( Matt ) tuning came on higher and quicker than the Trifecta tune. So the low end torque & horsepower numbers were the differences right now. Remember we were in hotter air too!!! Matt took the time on a Saturday while I was at the dyno to send me updated tunes within a minute or two after I sent him the dyno pull results after each run. Hear what I'm saying about this folks. I'm at another tuning shop and Matt is sending me updated files while I'm strapped on the dyno. Thanks also to Tim @ TandT Performance for letting me sit on your dyno about 1.5 hours total while doing the remote updates with Matt. I'm in Maryland and Matt in Florida so for now this is the best we can do to get done live. So it breaks down max HP = 268.?? TQ = 248.?? So HP was down about 3hp but torque was up at 7 Ft Lbs. A/F was very steady in the 12.5 - 12.9 range. So that's the latests I'll be doing some track runs on Monday Sept 2 at MIR and we will see how it goes. My car is very responsive, gas mileage is still around 27 - 28 MPG when cruising at 65 mph. I am very pleased with the results so far. Remember we are not done yet, great remote tuning takes time and I'm using up a lot of Matt's time.

On another note only did one pull on the nitrous, I need to lean it out a bit but got 60HP+ at the rear wheels with the A/F in the 10.6 - 11.0 range this was the first pull on the dyno with no prior logging done. I had put a fuel jet in it .004 bigger than called for to play it safe for a first pull. I did not fine tune the nitrous yet. I did not want to heat up the engine to much after already doing some all motor dyno pulls earlier. So there is MORE power on the spray yet to come!!!

Perfect etmx!!! Yes that AFR is good especially on the dyno, over the road it may lean out just a tenth or two which is fine. Let's see some track runs next, and we'll continue to fine tune this in for the nitrous!

Big thanks to Tim @ T&T also for providing the dyno time.

Well, it looks like the Maryland weather is going to give me a chance this Friday night to try the new tuning out. It is supposed to be a high of 72, so that will be a good beginning test session. I am SOOOOOO ready to get some track time in decent air, not great air but this will do for now.

Did Matts tuning resolve your converter issues?

We are not done tuning just yet but we are moving forward and this Friday should be interesting on how everything works to this point. Some data logging this weekend should help out on the next tuning stage we are entering.

Sweet! Pressure is on, I'm going to Matt today for some dyno tuning. Not sure what to expect with so much humidity and high temp.

Still working on the tuning of the convertor, that's a whole different set of tuning. It has all been from the 330' and up where my ET & MPH are coming from right now. So it's all Matt's tuning that has made me quicker/faster. Hope you get some good results today.
PS, need to change your signature now, no more 3.73. :-)

Funny thing is, I had changed it yesterday to read 3.91, but when they did the server restore I lost it and lost a thread I started too. No tune today for me, we plan to try tomorrow as when I got there I discovered we are locked out of the ECM by the Trifecta tune and I didn't know I need to bring my Trifecta cable. Matt said we will try again tomorrow. On the plus side I will have another 210 miles on the gears as its 70 miles each way to him.

If I remember right your old personal best was a 12.7x. If that's right a 0.2 drop without working on the short end is fantastic. You'll pick up another 0.2 getting the first 60' and 200 feet down. You are already cutting a better 60' than I am, so your setup seems to be working better to get around the throttle position issue.

Yes Sir you are correct. Best before was a 12.71, So I am very happy with the results. You and I know where the issues are for that 60' situation. Someday it will be completely figured out and a whole new world of fun will begin. After the season is closed this year I have some 3.91s to go into this heavy weight car to help get it moving off the line for next year. Maybe later this year if the winter is mild. Don't want to throw anything new into the tuning mix right now. This way the results will be all Matt's skill in tuning, which we all see is working great so far. I'm faster now than I ever dreamed I would be. I thank you, Matt and many others when I was ready to give up a few months back to help me keep going.

Ya that was a kick to the you know what when we both realized crap we need to put this back to stock.. I was hoping for that one day off this month, but it's all good we'll get some tuning done and maybe I'll turn a wrench on the shop car.

Thank you Rick.. We just tuned it, you built it. Great combination, awesome guy to work with also. Your knowledge helps in this remote tuning matter!

Oh and yes of course we'll have to put some numbers up with INeedAZ's car. You guys can both have motivation, and we will be PROUD to tune both of your cars.

Well Friday the 13th wasn't the greatest for me at the track. Had a great 60' of 1.66. Just as I went in 2nd gear my nitrous transducer for the bottle heater blew off and I went way rich. A/F went to 10.5 - 10.6. I still went 12.60 @107.88. So I feel it was ready to put up another great ET, That was a better 60' by .05 than I have ever been. So we will see what happens next time out. BTW the shift pattern change was good.
