Because it isn't running properly, only reason I see.

Single turbo Xi has been on vacation

walnut blasting complete, NLS enabling scheduled for next week, then a business trip, trip to see family in ID, then back to the Bay Area beginning of July. Car is still running like a champ with the initial conservative tune

I've never set eyes on a 1/4 mile track in my life. It just doesn't interest me. I don't care about pushing that last 1/100th of a second that could be achieved by weight saving when taking a big shit between runs. But that's just me

After i had the turbos installed, I got on a shitty dynojet ASAP but my AWD disagreed with it. Tuning was far from complete anyways. I haven't had any time at all to get to a mustang dyno since then.

Now that tuning is buttoned up for the most part, my logs look good, and my virtual dyno numbers are consistent and repeatable. The car feels great, and that's all that matters to me. At some point I'll get to a mustang dyno, but don't hold your breath because currently I am way too busy.

Just because 85% of XI are automatic, with e85+meth your t-case will take a shit and your auto box will start to slip... Not totally sure about the b3 flash
