I have a stage 3+ spec clutch and will be running 93 and charge pipe meth. Once everything is sorted away I will get an aftermarket intake manifold and go with direct port meth. I have ZERO e85 that I can access easily. I think there are only 3 or 4 stations in MA last I checked. I also don't have time to drive 1hr for a fill up when e85 lowers your mpg to like 12 mpg. If I lose a 1/4 tank on the drive home. I'm not going to buy drums of e85 for my hobby.

I have a walbro stage 2 bucket which should be enough for 93 and once I have direct port meth I will use the meth for fueling. Too risking spray and pray in the charge pipe.

Smoker is going on soon and so will the rubs on the meat.

Edit: tune is by motiv. I can explain why in person. Gotta get back to werk.

Car runs, getting an alignment and car wash at Ford as we speak.

Major issue was the 034 motor mounts let the engine sag so the manifold hit the strut tower when the turbo was on. Fuck 034. If you have them get them off your car.

I went with he rev shift 80A MM and they feel great. No weird vibrations or anything.

On base map 18psi 0 timing etc. Going to start logging and turning up the boost!

I'll post pictures later. It looks and sounds SICK. Loud too...

Glad to hear she's all back together. What are your goals for boost/power?

600whp on 93 + charge pipe 100% meth is my goal. a 6466 can hit 550whp on pump 93 so the meth should get me that extra 600 conservatively I hope.

I don't want more as i want to block to last a long long time. Honestly 600whp will probably scare the shit out of me.

I agree, 550-600whp is the money zone for our cars on the street. Traction becomes a serious issue past that.

Oh my single turbo install? I did not take any but I can send you the links of what I used to get it installed. Once you figure it all out it makes sense. There are a few parts not well documented online.

The wonderful oil drain being one. That sent me back 1/2 a day if not longer. Also, clocking the turbo sucks. Probably took an hour.

I'm sure there is more I am forgetting.

Oh and 034 motor mounts can go eat a dick.

Still working with Motiv. My fuel trims are maxed in the low RPMs which is weird. I'm resetting all adaptations and going to log again and get another map revision. The last map almost fixed it completely and they only max for 300rpms.

So i'm still on wastegate, aka 15psi, it's still more fun to drive than the stock twins and it sounds much better, albeit louder in all situations.
