A friend of mine is running 26 psi with DOM 3 XTR and a Spearco TMIC. Even on the dyno at 24 psi and a piss poor cooling fan setup, it wouldn't knock on back to back pulls with E85.

He ran into the limits of his fuel system during that tune and now that he has a bigger pump I've re-tuned it on the road at 26 psi and it doesn't have any knock with back to back pulls. Even a 20 minute track session in 90* weather couldn't produce a single instance of knock.

I second the suggestion of trying some road tuning. You don't even come close to getting the same amount of heat dissipation on the dyno as you do on the road.

On a side note - amazingly his block is a stock 05 EJ257 wtih around 40k miles on it. Most of the miles were before he swapped it into his RS but its spent a season on the DOM 3 on pump gas at 370 whp and now its spent another season at 520 whp on E85 and its holding strong. We both figured it would blow but to our amazement its held up all year, including through track racing, drag racing, autocross, etc.
Spearco ftw!

Lol - its seems to be sufficient. I wasn't sure if it would be but the he really didn't want to try to run a FMIC on an GC chassis.

He even has a stock 2.5 RS hood and hood scoop and looking at it you'd think there is no way in hell its flowing air well over the intercooler but it somehow works.

I think this is more of "E85 FTW" myself. The ***** is amazing.

I want to do an e85 tune but there are no stations here and its a pita for what you have to do to run e85

Alright, I'm going to look further into some of these suggestions. As of right now, financially I'm going to have to go with the relatively cheap route for now and just patch it up the best I can to deal with the extra heat on the TMIC. This would mean wrapping everything and doing water injection. Mike advised against meth injection, but if it will keep the temps down in the TMIC, I'm not sure why it wouldn't be a good Idea at this point.

Im talking to Turbonetics about getting the proper splitter sent out so that that's handled.

That's good that the spearco tmic comes with a splitter but alot of people have bin complaining about the quality and fitment issues.

Droid has auto correct. Bin. . .really. .

Anyways, "alot of people" = the same ~five retards over and over who didn't install it properly or are looking for something to complain about. Maybe read the thread. .to be honest, I think it has been settled as an excellent piece with minor quirks (BPV fitment, not enough sealing material for splitter,) to deal with.

Not like I ran the GB start to finish. .and, you know he isn't talking about the GB Spearco right? That was for GR WRX fitment. The 02-07 STI unit hasn't had issues.

Spearco definitely isn't a flow restriction, but that is a lot of hot air to deal with, especially with a hot environment.

Anyways, you're speaking with Turbonetics about it OP, could likely talk with one of their engineers as well.

Well aware bud, but I was referring to reliability and longevity of the engine. On pump or race gas @ 26psi it would never last. With E85 though, that changes the whole game, its much more stable and takes less to get there.
