Sorry to anyone that was interested but Redline Performance has shut down and the dyno day will need to be rescheduled. I will call AV Engineering and Showzone to get prices this week. If anyone knows of any other places please let me know. Thanks

Just a heads up, had my intake valves walnut blasted at Rick Hendricks for the reasonable sum of $280. Group purchase interest in this? I got a guy on the inside that might be able to make it happen. Car feels like new, it's incredible.

Also, if you go this route, DEFINITELY get the BMS oil catch can. Best money I ever spent, and keeps all that nasty gunk out of my intake.

I went by there and it looked like they were closed down. I called Showzone and it's $75 regular for 3 pulls and $60 for group with 5+ cars. We're looking to do this Nov. 9 so who's in?

E85 in Charleston, SC

I figure some of you guys around Charleston are running various fuel blends with E85. Our area switches to Teir 2 blends in October so I thought it would be interesting to see what the E content was as I have been testing various levels with my car.

I use Spinx in Moncks Corner since it closest to me. I got a simple test tube tester and it is reading around 77-78% ethanol which is decent. Teir 2 spring/fall blend has to have a minimum of 74% Ethanol. We should switch back to Teir 1 summer blends around late April early May 2014. I will test again periodically.

This ended throwing off my calculations by 5% which isn't super critical but is important to know if you are testing the limits of your LPFP, etc.

That's good information. I didn't Spinx had e85 so I always went to the gas station next to showzone. I wonder what their e85 measurement may be?

I think most of the Spinx locations carry it. I will throw the test tube in my car and can test that station next to Showzone tomorrow.

Routing this USB cable inside the car is kicking my ass. I am more of a visual learner and there really is no video of this. I have went over the tutorial post but it is still not going.

I am in Moncks Corner. Any help would be appreciated. I don't mind kickin in a few bucks to get you a case of beer, etc. I am planning on hitting up the dyno day with some of you local Charleston, SC guys next weekend.

Thanks!

Man, I wish I would have seen this earlier. I live in Summerville and would have loved to have been involved as I would like to do this to mine later on.

We should be getting together next month. Kind of hard to get everyone together with the holidays and traveling. I think they'll be a dyno next month also.

There's about 15 of us in the Chuck that get together randomly during the week and weekends. Trying to plan another dyno in the up coming weeks. Everyone is always welcome to come out and ride. If any of you ever visit charleston let us know and we can plan a meet.
