Pittspeed died a long time ago. I don't know where everyone from there went to instead though.

Are you claiming that 35psi on a GTX35R is more efficient than 20psi? Because, you may want to learn how to read compressor maps before you do that. Of course, you can always post the compressor map and make me eat crow.

Tom, I question your choice in fuel pumps. What is your power goal? A 300lpf (Supra fuel pump) should do 575hp. So if you're shooting for 500whp, why not go with the Walbro 400?

I remember we were having a conversation a while ago about 'over-building'. While I might have agreed with it at the time, I now think it's misguided. For example, let's say you want a 400whp Subaru. Should you build an 800whp and only tune it to 400? What kind of significantly different ring end gaps are you going to need for 800? How much more blow-by are you going to get at lower power levels? How much of that will 'dilute' the oil and cause you to spin bearings down the line?

Basically, in my current opinion, Just Right Engineering is better than Massive Overengineering.

You don't need an A1000 or ID2000s for 500whp. Also, too much emphasis is put on dyno numbers these days and not enough on lap times.

Actually he is running E85 so he does need both, because they don't make something in the middle. Unless you think a 400lph pump and 1000cc injectors at stock fuel pressure can feed it which it you do you are dead wrong.

Last I spoke to him, he was not planning to use E85 but rather a combination of 93 and race gas which would lead to about 104 octane. Did you hear something different?

Also, explicithero, I bet your thought process was as follows: 'oooh, I get a chance to say something against mrf582. **** yeah, I'm pumped! I'm going to get him back for all the times in the past and really embellish my impending victory. oh man this is going to be great. he's not just wrong, he's DEAD wrong.'

Gawd, you are pathetic.

I believe he is trying to simplify the system for trouble shooting purposes.

Or just high maintenance with added potential points of failure. Even a non-daily driver can get tedious if you always have to mess with it or fix or replace things. Although I would have to say this is the first time I've ever seen Tom put effort into making something LESS complicated.

I did notice the all caps and exclamation points emphasizing how wrong you are. Yes I did hear something different. Hence what I typed.

I guess you have me figured out, I watch and try to find ways to "get back" at you. For something you did to me at sometime in your life. I have nothing against you. I find the e-thug funny so...Get the fick over yourself.

I just know that 1000cc injectors won't supply enough E85 to support over 420whp the will barely get you to 400whp . And a 400lph pump will not supply 2250cc injectors.

Sent from phone while at stop lights... So excuse if not properly Formed diction.

LOL, why do you keep talking about irrelevant things? He's not going to run E85 yet you keep telling us how ID1000s won't be enough for his power goals on E85. Thank you Captain Obvious for the incredibly enlightening bit of info. Are you going to mention another painfully obvious part that isn't going to work for him?

Thanks slow !! Power came on about 2 am. Just discovered something about having window ac. The temp dropped to 68 degrees. I could not gt enough airflow into the house to take advantage as every bedroom and the living room has it's window plugged with an ac unit LOL!
Heat is annoying. What sux is when there is a downpour and no power for the sump pump. Fortunately it did not rain long enough to be an issue.

Never thought that was directed to me. My plan is to get my attached to the furnace wood burner going and a generator by winter. If anyone has any generator knowledge please share. I want to run a decent portion of the house from one.
