I have officially joined the E85 army.
Printer at the shop was acting funky so the graph is hard to see. Car made 326/360. Expected more out of it but oh well. Tune is great and the low power is in no way shape or form the tuners fault.
Power mods are as follows.
07 Sti, HTA68(7cm) - ID1000's - Walboro 255lph - Perrin inlet - Cobb 3 port EBCS - GS Ceramic coated up-pipe - Tial 44mm EWG


Elevation at the shop is over 5k ft, correction factor is 1.5 I believe (15%)

Marginally well behaved.

That graph looks great, very responsive (yay 7cm!!). That is a pretty low number though for that turbo and E85. What's the peak boost on it?

That's not too bad for that turbo at higher altitude but I'm surprised to see the torque drop off so sharply after peaking. I would also be curious to know how much boost it hits and then tapers to.

Yeah, I'd be curious to see the boost curve too. I thought the point of the HTA68 was stock-like spool, but not dropping off up top. This looks like it dies just like a VF would. In fact, it looks just like a VF powerband with similar (possibly even lower) peak numbers (than a VF). I'm still not convinced the HTA68 is worth it over a VF. Most results I've seen make it look pretty similar.

Power mods are as follows.
04 Sti, GTX35r (.63 hotside) - ID2000's - dual Walboro 255lph - Tigwerks FMIC, Headers, Downpipe, Uppipe, turbo inlet. Cobb SD

What GTX35r is that? I'm almost done with my GTX3576r build and I went with a Tial .82 hotside. That .63 hotside (I'm assuming Garrett T3 housing) looks to be holding power up top really well.

Got the gauge direct from Zeitronix as well as the wiring harness. Sensor was off e-bay from a crashed Tahoe!

Holder was designed by me and made by my sheet metal guy from work

Cool mount for the ECA. I like my a lot it keeps all the guess work out of the fuel. Here is where I have mine mounted.

Yea. Sensors are pricey. I probably spend $400 total. Where did you mount yours? Mine is on a bracket utilizing the balance hose on my Sti.

Yeah sorry but laws only state it has to be E70 to be considered E85 and my EXPENSIVE motor and parts are not worth risk. My car was tuned on E84 so if I get some E70 in the tank I can do some damage to the motor.

If you get some low E content fuel either turn down the boost or don't beat on it.

It just depends on how aggressive your tuner has tuned your car and if he left some room in the tune for chance that you may get low E
