So basically a car on ur dyno needs meth to hit less than typical stage 2 numbers? That really does read super low, lol. My god. That tune looks super smooth and the power delivery looks great. I bet its a blast. I love my aquamist kit. 50k with it and not 1 issues. I don't understand why people get so put off by meth. It's safe,makes power and pretty much makes ur car run safer. Good job guys

Thank you, Meth sometimes gets a bad rap because some of the lesser advanced kits out there (we all know what they are). That said we have numerous cars running the Aquamist kits with zero issues whatsoever.

The stage-2 numbers are just that, numbers. We have some cars that do read higher than others, something we do see time to time. We use our Mustang 500 AWD dyno as a tuning tool. There are numerous posts from our industry friends with other dyno manufacturers that have commented on the differences between the Mustang and various others in the area.

We have a little more tweaking to do with this client.

The dyno day should put all the dyno results numbers to bed with the community and forum members. We cant wait to get all the tristate area members out to the Dyno Day. Akuma is really looking forward to meeting everyone!

Some cars give you a bit more than others. There is no black magic, it is a STG2 car. The car still has a stock MAP sensor, so I am only running 21PSI peak. If we switch to an AEM 3 BAR, I can offer the customer to run 23PSI peak and then taper off. He also only wants to run a 50/50 mix by volume. This set up is designed to add a margin of safety, not necessarily break HP records. The customer races this car, and the added cooling and detonation suppression were the primary objectives. The added power is really just gravy in this particular build.

Also, judging by the numbers in your signature(by your name), your car might make 350-360 on our dyno...maybe. Why don't you bring it by and find out...

John

Oh i bet it would.lol Id be THRILLED to make 350 on your dyno. Numbers are just numbers though. I dont really pay much mind to them. Running the meth as less of a power adder and more of a saftey net is the way to go. Thats exactly what im using mine for. Id much Rather make 20-30whp less and have a really safe tune that'll last then push it with meth and aggressive boost and afr and have it last 30-40k. Building a block is not a fun time.

Also, im not sure if my first post about this car needs meth to make less than typical stage 2 numbers came off as a "knock" or a "Insult" cause i certainly didnt mean it like that. I was just shocked how low your dyno really does read.

John any reason you don't like to use the OEM 3bar that comes with the 08+ cars?

Junior,

I actually think John was referring to the AEM 3.5 bar MAP sensor in order to read the higher boost levels accurately.

3 bar should be good to ~28 psi of boost or ~43 psi absolute.
