Is the stock motor still alive? How many miles on the motor? Swap the built motor when the stock one blows up. Good tuning is the key for longevity, turn it up

Alive and kicking like a champ. This is Sharif, I've been driving the car nearly every day with E85 and 23-25psi of boost. So far 14,000 miles not one issue. Burns no oil, and has been super reliable.

Jason is almost done assembling the stroker engine, and we'll have pics shortly. With 40 cars here currently, the Forged project cars are overloading that back burner.

Once we get some more customer cars finished, more progress will be made. Customer cars always come first.

I going on a E85 tune as well, and I have to ask are you running on a e85 tune and have a back up e70 tune? what would you use to monitor knock if winter rolls around and you are forced to use sub e85 fuel?

What gauges are you currently using?

how do you possibly know what you are putting in your tank is 100% e85 and not some e50 mix, reason i say this is because there's been cases reported where gas companies are doing it.

and lastly what would you do if you knew you put in some e70 and not e85 in your tank? as far as my research show, the octane difference is minimal something like 4-5 octane. however with the advance timing/boost you need to run in WOT with a e85 tune this 4-5 octane difference can still create knock ( not so much in lower rpms) would you suggest a 2nd map or just go with a more conservative tune and not worry about it.

E85 can be anywhere from E85 to E70 depending on the time of the year and geographic location. Our tunes are never at the absolute edge for daily use and AF trims will adapt over time. Wintertime is when the fuel starts containing a higher amount of petrol which results in slightly richer AF ratios. I would not run 30psi of boost in the wintertime on pump grade E85 without testing the ethanol level, which is actually very easy to do.

With respect to gauges, we will be running everything through an HKS Camp2 unit and displaying on our Pioneer AVIC aftermarket NAV unit.

We've assembled the engine and have everything ready to go. Once Jason finishes the two massive GT-R 1000whp+ projects he has in front of him, then he'll be back on the shop mule.

In the meantime, I continue to daily drive this thing, and love it more and more! Oh, I have the AEM Series2 box ready to go in as well. In fact, I might wire it up and tune it on the stock block just for fun...prior to the stroker motor going in the car. In fact...yes I will do that.

When will we get more pics and the built engine dyno video? How does your exhaust sound on it?

We will get some pics up when we can. We've been very busy here. The exhaust sounds awesome. I'll ask Chad to get a quick vid of the car idling/revving.

Is the exhaust a full 3" or 3.25"?
