Default Akuma Motorsports Tuned 2011 WRX (93 pump & E85 fuel)!

Event: Dyno Tune
Location: AkumaMotorsports
2-Amboy Avenue
Woodbridge NJ
07095
Weather: 53F, cloudy
Elevation: Sea Level
Dyno: Mustang AWD 500
Tuner: John Schafer
Relevant Modifications: Stage-2 (FIC 1100cc, 255 LPH FP, Cobb SF-Intake, CNT Catted DP, Process West TMIC, Grimmspeed EBCS, Nameless Axle Back)
Transmission: Stock 5-speed
Gear: 3rd
Engine Management: Cobb Accessport (Akuma Calibrated)

Numbers: 93 pump fuel - 289 whp / 315 wtq.
e85 fuel - 320 whp / 337 wtq.


Background / Information: This super-clean tastefully modded 2011 WRX came into AkumaMotorsports for a dual-Map tune. The maps consist of a 93 oct. safe tune @ 18-psi and an e85 tune @ 20 psi. This gives the client a "best of both worlds" type scenario by having both Maps available. John started tuning on the 93 pump gas and then we added 11-gallons of the supplied e85 fuel (to 1/8 tank of 93 pump) and commenced tuning the vehicle. The customer left Akuma with an ear-to-ear grin and we were happy to provide this pleasant experience.

11 gallons of E85 would be less than 80% of the tank. What happens when he fills up with E85 again and it leans out?

If that is the case which the customer has been notified of, he will have to swing by, we'll make the proper adjustments, road test the car to verify the vehicles safety and tune (all free of charge) and that will be that.

Hey that's my car! The car is running great. I'm loving the extra power! I wish i switched to e85 sooner. I filled up my first full tank of e85 today. I was planning to stop by sometime next week just so you guys can make sure everything still looks good.

Ian, There is a station by Newark airport and that is the only one that I really know of. The rest of my team may have some additional information and will chime in. You could always purchase a 55-gallon drum. I did that with C12 race fuel for my street & off road bikes as long as you have a good transfer device you will be fine.

Any further details on what mods are on the car? Is it just turboback + the injectors and fuel pump?

I will update the post for everyone on the complete mods list. I have contacted the client to get all the details. I can say it is an excellent sounding and looking vehicle. Very clean and no "rice" at all.

That sounds like a really solid setup. Lots of fun on E85 and the stock turbo!

Dave, Thanks for the quick response. Yeah thats the only station in nj I know of thats open too the public.

I actually have 4 55 gallon drums that are FDA approved "good for pure alcohol". I had these from years ago for the wrx when I lived in upstate "CNY" where there werent that many stations. Need one? They are taking up space these days...

The wrx is on the back burner for now till I can get it caged. Id like too run it in my Forester though. I have all the fueling mods, just need too put it in and start tuning.

Ian,

On a side note. Did you guys test the fuel before you tuned it? Is it still winter blend or no? I pretty much test every batch a customer comes in with. I guess you dont have too worry "as much" since most folks are are going too the same station if they are coming from nj...

Thats a fun setup.

The EWR station was still at E70 last check. Another test will be done soon. Maybe that awesome E77(summer blend) will be back.

If true E85 had been used, mixing the 93 and a real E85 with the specified amounts would be ~ E73 anyway. That would have been close to whats available at the pump at the airport.

Since EWR gas was used, probably E70, the tune is probably close to an E60 tune. Plenty more gains to get with some minor tweaks for sure once the better stuff comes in! Hint: Time to order drums of e98

Looks like a fun setup! Just out of curiosity, what does a stock 09+ WRX put down on your dyno?

In response to the E85 testing... The car was tuned a bit on the rich side to accommodate the change when he gets a few tanks of pure E85. This includes WOT and the AF Trims are about -7%. In addition, we will have a follow up with the vehicle to make sure everything is 100% perfect.

Thanks!

John

Ian,
There is a place about 10 mins from ATCO called Mighty Joe's that sells pump E85 to the public...

nice results, I'm torn between getting just a 93 map or trying to get one for e85 as well!

Our mods are close, I'll have an EL and external wastegate, otherwise basically same. Which fuel do you plan on using most of the time now that you've driven on e85 a little bit?

SenorDuck - In my opinion it is a win-win situation having both maps loaded onto the AP.

Rexblake - I will have to look into the archive to see what a stock 09+ WRX outs down on our Mustang AWD dyno. (I will get back to you.)

After driving on the e85 I think ill be using that most of the time now lol. I work in the airport so it's pretty easy for me to get, but I like having the 93 map too just in case I take the car on a trip somewhere that doesn't have e85.

Can't wait to see what it does with pure e85 not this e60-e70 mix u have going and getting a little more aggressive on the tune. There A lot left on the table with that e85 tune.

Agreed as John stated above, the tune is very safe for the client. We always have time to adjust as well for our clients if need be or as the client feels necessary.
