I kind of agree with an earlier poster, maybe a fixed leak or a tuning strategy change could alleviate the small'ish powerband.

I hate to be a douche, but it's not looking very good as powerband goes. This graph reminds me of a certain bro tuner, trying to hit xxx whp.

Nice setup op, I just wish you got a larger powerband, as u should have. I aplogize if i've offended you, please pm me and I will gladly edit my post.
Haha it alright man, i knew comments were going to rise from this thread but trust me, Nate is not like the "Bro" tuner you are referring to!

1) We built the car trying to hit the the high 500- low 600whp mark so we knew that we were going to be using a larger size turbo which is why the heads were built to rev 8500rpm

2) During the dyno tuning, Nate knew the car was only using a single in-tank DW300 fuel pump which was going to get maxed out, which happen to be @ 521whp (reason we only ran it out to 6500rpm.) Because of this, Nate never made any changes to the timing map because it would be pointless...

3) After the 521 dyno run, Nate lowered the boost to maintain safe AFR levels @ WOT until the fuel system gets upgraded (being taken care of this week!)

4) Nate tuned the car to 21psi, which made 451whp/409wtq and the car feels absolutely incredible! I trust him 100% with my car because he always tunes for reliable power, not one or the other
