How much more can I go? on ecu tune

Postby rogersmith » Thu Jan 17, 2008 4:20 pm

Seem to have it holding 21-20 psi to redline.

2003 evo 8.

I'm wondering why it suddenly drops after 5k. The boost seems to be holding there. Maybe need to up timing. (note: I stop after 6k because my injector duty cycle starts to max out. Need to install my fuel pump)

That's great, once you have a smooth boost curve, go ahead and add timing to clear up that dip. I might also suggest running an AFR of around 11.5 or greater to bring your IDCs down. You shouldn't need new injectors for 21psi on the stock turbo, just lean out some. Keep an eye out on knock coount when adding timing and leaning out to keep your tune bulletrpoof.
