RE: beginner question

You can use the high octane tune. Not recommended, but you can SLIGHTLY tweak the tune--but possibly cause serious engine damage. You should be able to do some data logging with the predator , send it in to them they check out the log info and can create a custom tune for your application-this would...

RE: Question regarding my custom tuning on the the K&N T

Is there any info on what adjustments your various make over the the factory tune? With the tune above I have never have any detonation at all. Is that due to the detontation/PCM ba...

Rear wheel horsepower can be measured on a dyno. Flywheel horsepower can only be measured by pulling the engine out of the car completely and testing it on the bench. There is no general RWHP = FWHP * 0.86 equation to apply to your question. With every car the loss due to drivetrain is going to be ...

Rustang, you mention installing a 70 MM throttle body.....do you have the rest of the engine mods in place to take advantage of the increased air intake flow, IE, headers, highflow cat-back exhaust and/or x pipe? I left the stock dual 62 MM dual throttle body on my own 05 GT with FIPK, Hi flow Mac c...
