I'd like to get a bigger storage tank and try thortons since its a bit of a drive.

The car feels great, I'm watching my logs closely. I did have to tune out some throttle closures but they were minor.

My STFT was no more than about 15% positive. Tried to increase scalar to about E35 but just like you say that test kit might be worth the investment for $20-30 bucks to be a little more specific.

My immediate requirement is I'd like to try to tune out my timing drops after a gear change. It's a AT, goes from 15 degrees to about (-15) after the shift. (IJEOS).

Not much of a drop in mpg's - I was expecting a larger decrease as I drive about 70 miles a day.
I have been running an E45 map for a couple of months now and my MPG has only dropped by about 2. I should have the test kit early next week and will let you know what the results are. I'm sure Jake@PTF will increase timing on the next revision since my last log was clean.
