Next he will see what he can do for usable power range for track and beyond. My hope is that we can get into low 400s with meth and 91. Then we will see where we can go with e85 and meth.

Still good number with 91 octane, but why not 93 octane?

No 93 oct in California. 347 is good for 91, tomorrow he will turn meth on and run it with this tune, then he will create a new tune for 91+ 100% meth

Update on tuning.

Tuner worked a little more with the 91 only tune and feels he has achieved a 364whp level that is perfectly stable and quite safe.

He also turned the meth system on and at 22psi is making well over 400. He feels that he will be able to reach 450 with just 91 and methanol (running 100% meth) which was my hope. If that plays out, we should be able to get close to 500 with e85 and the extra injector plus methanol.

Tuner is Dave at AUTuning in Huntington Beach, CA

I heard from tuner today.....

Hey Larry. I have been going back and forth with Eurodyne trying to resolve an issue within their software for your particular ECU. We canít get boost above 22 psi with the Eurodyne software. This is perfect for the 91 octane tune which we are now making 370 whp with. But with the methanol injection activated, we can take advantage of higher boost levels that we currently canít reach because of the software limitation. At 22 psi with the methanol system activated, we are making 420 whp. I am going to pull the car off the dyno today and schedule time for our team to finish up the suspension bits, ride height, alignment and few other miscellaneous tasks. Once we find a resolution to the software issue, we can revisit that on the dyno. In the meantime, Iíd like to wrap up the car and get it back to you so you can shake it down and work out all of the bugs. Iíll update you on the progress.

I can hardly wait to get this thing to the track. 420 is a little shy of what I was going for on my track tune but should still be boat loads of fun and will still surprise a few folks until we can get the boost issue sorted.

You need a bigger MAP sensor, that's why it won't read over that boost level.

Well not according to tuner, asked him that. He said Eurodyne has a special setting for the boost control sensor that is supposed to allow them to hit 30psi. He was on the phone with owner of Eurodyne and indicated that it may be some hardcoded limitation in the ECU ver. and that they would work on a solution.

He also told me he took it out for a drive and said the car is blazing and will roast the tires in 3rd gear. Spools almost as early as K04, very little lag.

Note - of course this won't be the first time the obvious answer is denied only to find out later it was the solution. I traded emails with Ryan (HYDE16) who has an EFR7163 using n75 and Eurodyne and he was running 33psi with a 2.5bar map, this was on his MK6 GTI.

370whp - 91oct only
420whp - 91oct and meth - low boost 22psi

Read this onemy friend, I believe you need the 3bar MAP



I had it with the BWA engine with the GTX28 setup.

Tuner put a 3 Bar map on and tuned for it but it didn't make any diff. He says it is a Eurodyne problem and is working with them to get a solution.

Update

So I talked with Dave this morning. He has been working on the boost problem. Can't make boost past 22psi. He has been unable to solve the issue using Eurodyne software so he decided to reach out to Frank Mabo (Mabotech) who writes his own software and has a lot of FSI experience to see if they can overcome the issue. Frank uses Eurodyne to do the file transfer but writes his own software. Fingers crossed. My files have been sent to Frank and he will check in with him this week.

Dave (tuner) has driven the car and I asked him about the brakes and suspension.

When I put in the 18z f/r brakes worry was about pedal travel so we put in the TTRS master cylinder. Dave said the brakes were very responsive and require very little pedal travel. He said that he had installed 17z calipers on his Audi and liked them except for the extra pedal travel which he said is typical when installing these type calipers with stock master cylinder. He has driven a bunch of them.

He said that they have the suspension dialed in and considering all the mods I was worried how rough it might be but he said it rides well. There are now lots of spherical bearings instead of bushings so I was concerned. However, he said the car ride well at least on the smooth roads around his shop.
