J/K. It is amazing how paranoid they are about modding EcoBoosts, but they keep looking for things that aren't needed to get nice power out of them (paint on actuator arms, bleeders on boost lines, etc...).
well, in theory though, it should only be your powertrain warranty... Rest of the car should in fact still be covered...

As for the EBs... yeah, apparently a tuner or two popped some EB's early on and then took them to the dealer to get them fixed under warranty... Ford quickly caught on and wasn't too happy about it... hence the bulletin...

Boost spike is only 2 psi now and the boost creep up top is not very much at all. Very consistent boost through the run.

Boost controller is on 85%.

Here is the great part, I am running the tune I had in the car for 50% on boost controller (13-14psi). So with the boost controller on 85%, I didn't have to touch the pe table much at all in the tune, the .014 jets in the fuel plate worked great! AND we can go up from there with the jets when Derrick gets used to this power....LOL.

With the PE table changes, I only leaned it out about a half a point on commanded afr, and the fuel rail pressure is pretty solid at 2000 psi which is very close to commanded rail pressure.

I did find out the factory injectors are 109 lb/hr, and we are only seeing about 50-55% duty cycle. Once again, plenty of room to grow.

I think on race gas, and more aggressive timing we could see 600 -610 rwhp.

On Derricks tune that he ran at the track, it was likely about 500 rwhp, he was trapping the same mph as me in the 1/8th and 1000 ft. I ran 10.87 at 124 in my car, so with 60-80 more rwhp, 10s should be cake.
Just caught the part in bold. Wow! I guess that puts to rest any doubt about needing an injector upgrade.

BTW, how much you spraying on your car. Love how you never give me a chance to beat you...always one step ahead.

Just in case a radio knob falls off or something.

Well when you hit the boost that could happen

Lock the converter if its the triple disc upgrade and your way over 600 at the wheels now.

We had to have Vince take fuel away for myworlds LLT EFR build as well and were using a similar system with his from Julieo.

This car is a deep 10 sec car with the driver mod tweaked......(and it could go quicker.....my personal C5 is slightly less whp and runs 10.60's NA and a little spray into the 9's).

Awesome job Rhino & Gretch!!!!!!!

We are shipping forged pistons now for those wanting forged.

Made a few more pulls w/ meth and about the same. It did pull a bit of timing, but our IATs are higher today, too.

Looks like a good safe tune. Want to set it up so I run on the street at 45-50% duty cycle for the waste gates with the fuel enrichmemt off. At the track we turn the duty cycle to 85% and set the fuel enrichment to 50%. No changing tunes at all.

CRAZY DUDE!

Thats some serious power!

I'm guessing a built manual tranny would put down a bit over 600 whp. These engines are sick...

I would estimate 625 or so. I also wouldn't recommend it on the stock clutch.
