Talking FINALLY! maxed out the lil ol' GT35R!

So all summer I've been fighting the re-build of my car. From oil pumps failing to injectors not working to the latest AEM EMS not letting my rev past 6600rpm :x . It all got sorted out today thanks to Adam and the guys at Revolutions Performance and Jeremy of Servion Tuning! After going over the entire car and numerous calls to AEM, turns out pulling a curtain jumper in the AEM EMS solved the 6600rpm limiter . As most of you know during PINKS All Out the car recently went [email protected] at Bandimere Speedway maxing out my 1100cc injectors running 22psi on E85 (460whp). I wanted to up-grade to the AEM pretty much as soon as I heard it was plug and play (ha :? ) and available mainly due to being speed density and a much safer way to extract every last horsepower from my car. Adam and especially Jeremy love the system so it got me even more excited about getting the system on my car. No more inconsistent AFR's like when is was tuned on a MAF!

So we got the car on the dyno tonight, dialed it it, cranked up the boost and on 13psi (10 absolute) we were at about 350whp, 20psi (17 absolute) got me 430ish and maxing out the GT35R with 34psi tapering to 31psi (31-28 absolute) got us 550whp/481wtrq! The car feels amazing!

100% E85($2.69 at the pump )

WOW very impressive. Makes me wanna turn my boost up a bit more now......wow 34 lbs on a unsleeved motor....I wanna do that

Sorry to hear about the AEM problem, was it just a bad box, why was it set like that from the factory.Im glad mine worked perfect out of the box.

The fueling almost looks a little rich to me. I don't tune at that altitude, but my tunes run almost those AFRs on pump 93 here, with less boost though .

Awesome results! Can't wait to see the new 1/4 numbers.

Good work. You definitely haven't maxed the turbo out, but you're making good use of it.

This did stand out to me though...3.5 bar MAP sensor and 34 psi?

You can't guess what AFR a car should be running when you're not there tuning it. I'm sure they have their reasons. On E85 going leaner than that often doesn't make much of any difference in power, so that might be it. Maybe it's to help control cylinder temps at that boost level...

Up here at 6200ft elevation and on my ported/cam'd heads it's pretty much done. The AVCR keeps the wastegate closed almost the entire pull. You can hear the external wastegate venting when boost first comes on then it's silent, sounds pretty crazy. I may be able to squeeze a few more horses out of it with a 1.06 a/r, we'll find out this winter. Yes, I'll be at Bandi!

Altitude changes things, the AEM was reading 31psi tapering to 28psi at redline. The dyno reads gauge pressure.

I'm no tuner but I think you nailed it. We didn't see much gains running it leaner and the EGT's seemed to be very happy only hitting about 1550 degrees max on a 4th gear pull.

Isn't that the truth? I'm sure Phil understands this completely, but so many flatlanders just don't have a clue.

However, if you're talking about manifold "absolute pressure", it can never be less than boost since MAP is boost pressure plus ambient pressure. OTOH, MAP will most certainly be less than it would be at sea-level, due to the decrease in ambient pressure. Regardless, job well done amigo - 10's @ close to 130 at 6K elevation is flat cooking. Great driving too.

yah, i can only imagine what he will trap this time....jeez, isn't that really fast even for a 35r to trap that high, if he traps 128 on ~100 less whp(dyno different too?) then i imagine he will trap close to 136?

At sea-level, that'd be a piece of cake for this car. That is some serious power.

wont a 3.5 bar read up to 36.75 psi?

3.5*14.7 - 14.7 = 36.75

then he's at high altitude so it will read higher, probably something like

3.5*14.7 - 12 = 39.45


This is just like the stock 2.5 bar

2.5*14.7-14.7 = 22.05 which is why it pegs at 22 psi for sea level folks

up here at 3000 ft mine will read up to 23.3-23.6

2.5*14.7-13.4 = 23.35

or do i have something wrong here?

I also took about 60lbs out of it with some new carbon fiber seats, air bag removal and a steering wheel. I should be at about 3250lbs with me in it, I wouldn't be surprised to see my traps in the 135-137 range, hopefully they don't kick me out (I'm good for 10.0/135).
