    Would also like to know this. Not that I need to log anything but its always fun to have data to chart with.

    Do we have a google or OneDrive setup people can dump logs into with their mods defined for others to compare?

    Thinking of going with EPL, but wanting to know where I can find their proposed outputs for 91 octane stage 1. I could not find it on their FB page. Thanks

    I believe EPL has a photo on the FB site providing such info -- maybe +75 to 90 whp.

    ON our in house conservative Mustang dyno Stage 1 93 is about 345whp and a stock car is about 270whp. We only deal with whp as that is what the dyno gives us. Other companies like to use crank hp as it is a larger number and they can use any drivetrain calculation that they want. 91 would be a hair less and if you have access to E85 could even be the same. A lot of people in the PNW run the 93 file with the 92 gas.

    You should make a thread about this so people stop asking the same questions every 3 pages.

    Hey Chris. Any experience with people running the 93 files with 92 gas from Costco? BP is the only place here that has true 93 and it can be a bit hard to find. Would love to run the 93 file if Costco gas is up to the task. Thanks.

    Costco is normally not the best quality or at least varies greatly from location to location. You would probably be better off finding some E85 to mix with 91 or 92.

    Run a couple gallons of E85 with the 92 and you'll be good on the 93 file.

    Wait I can run 93 tune with 92 gas alone? Or are you saying with a mix of E85?

    Gas quality had a pretty big effect on the knock timing pull for my car. Valero 93 is a no-go. Shell has been great. I want to do some logging with a few other options that are a bit closer to home and work. Best bet is to log and decide from there.

    You may be able to. You would want to log the car on the 91 file and see how that looks. With E85 it would not be a problem at all.

    Chris/Tony, recommendations on AEM nozzle sizes to run the W/M file? One in the filter and one in the iABED spacer that comes with the 75mm TB would be the plan. Dual pulley car (57/183) with a ported blower, 75mm TB and all the other usual bolt ons. Getting a head of myself, but also recommendations on start/end boost levels for the controller?

    Iíll chime in on this 750-1000cc they recommend 50/50 ratio however I prefer 70/30. Iíve tried all settings at stage 2 8-12 worked best but now at beyond dp 8-17 works best. So prob youíll be good to start at 8-15. Iíd run a 500 at the Tb and 250 at or near the filter see how the car runs if itís all good you can probably even bump to a 500 at the filter as well. Good luck!

    Iíll take some data this weekend as Iím going to flash to the W/M file tonight. Iím running a single 1000cc/min AEM nozzle on the iAbed TB plate and am currently spraying at 8/18psi but will go back down to 8/14psi with the new file and log there before adjusting.

    Iím also running 1000cc at TB with 60/40 mix starting at 8 max at 13. Works well for me.

    You probably want to start with 500-750cc and start at 8PSI and full at 14PSI, then log and go from there.

    What are the pros and cons of lifting the shift point on a dsg car to 7500rpm? With a single pulley I would guess the few hundred rpm over the current TCU tune wouldn't push the super charger harder. than a dp ratio car. Is it just too hard/risky for the engine or trans? Is it that the power has leveled off so that it makes more sense to shift?

    Definitely one of the issues is the heat created at that high of an RPM. Especially for dual pulley cars.

    Right but this wouldnít necessarily be the case with a stage 2 car. By increasing the rpm by 400 from 7100 in third gear why wouldnít this be beneficial is what I believe he is asking.

    As has been stated, heat is the issue. As a lower pulley ratio, I think you would be fine. At a high PR, it is just too much heat to manage.

    I read an engineering document from Audi, a while back and they had tested the engine to 8k rpm, without problems. So I donít think you have to worry about valve float or rod/main bearings.

    The tranny is going to be more torque limited-600nm on an untuned tranny (no one knows what a tuned tranny can take, yet). So I donít think you would have problems here, either.

    Yeah with proper cooling and meth I donít see how this would be an issue at all. At what point would the higher RPM negate performance though...Iíd imagine in the 7400 to 7500 range we are close to negative performance. Whatís the highest anyone is running?

    You don't wanna go over 7400 since the at no gains above it. You just producing more heat and losing time

    I wouldn't mind having a TCU tune for a Stage 2 single pulley ratio car that goes to 7400. I have upgraded cooling already. Maybe the DP cars require W/M.

    1) Does the EPL run the coolant pump at 100% or its still worth it to do the 100% ''pump mod'' ? Following question is... if you do the 100% mod, is it still beneficial to do the pump upgrade ? it seems like the OEM one is quite a tank.. and I like to be able to trust a component LOL ( not sure how reliable are the aftermarket pump)

    2) I noticed my car rumble quite a bit more ( awe touring + awe resonated DP)... I'm thinking my cat are failing (should I get a code tho?) or.. one of the flange is leaking badly. thought??

    Thanks!

    I can only answer the reservoir question. The stock one just holds fluid, there isnít really anything cycling through it, so youíre just cycling between your HX and the Charger. By adding another tank you get that much more volume.

    EPL does change something with the duty cycle of the pump but it is not the same as doing the pump mod and running it at 100% all the time. There's been a couple of CWA100's kicking around for $300 on FB. They're direct plug and play and would flow a lot more than the stock CWA50. With an upgraded HX there might be some cooling benefits but nothing crazy. Unless you're adding a large amount of capacity to your SC loop the stock pump is adequate.

    Iíll be installing a CWA100-3 here shortly in my SQ5 with my AMS hx/reservoir setup. My cooling seems adequate with the factory CWA50 pump and the AMS pump (VariMax pump) but if I can squeak a bit more cooling out of the system Iíll be happy.

    Cwa100 requires a harnesss unless you wat to cut your harness. Give me a couple weeks and ill do a full writeup on the cwa100 and some new ways to get it very cheap as well as make your own harness in a fool proof oem way that requires simply connecting two wires together. I believe this coukd all be done for well under 200 bucks, maybe 140 bucks

    Finally got my PCV issue resolved with new valve and hose, just under the wire warranty wise.

    So, installed new NGK plugs gapped as recommended and flashed stage 1 + DSG. Sadly it's raining here so the test drive was held back some, but truly amazed at how transformed the car is. I did a 60 to <something> pull on the freeway and... good god.
    So glad I went for the DSG tune as well, really tightened things up, and nice to hear a bit more of the SC whine as well.
