    Morgan Walker, in the Sonic area, who makes a number of parts for this platform, was running close to 300hp on stock pistons last I checked and an upgraded turbo. Worth noting if you're planning on upgraded pistons.

    Got my 3rd tune update from BNR yesterday, not too much has changed performance wise really but he said there should be a bit more power along with a faster turbo spool.

    According to my logs i'm hitting 99% injector duty cycle (19PSI), That was on a 0-180 km/h pull. It's definitely time for bigger injectors

    Yeah, I don't even push the engine beyond 5500rpms. The stock injectors are screaming for mercy beyond that at 21psi. We leaned out the afr from 11.3 to 11.6 but it only gave a little bit of relief for the injectors. I just had BNR make an extra trans tune that keeps the WOT shift points around 5500rpms, since shifting there yielded the quickest time for me (15.0), and prevents the IDCs from exceeding 95%. Beyond 5500 I've seen over 100% IDC. Until I get injectors and coils; I'll never take the car above 5500rpms except in 1st gear. Meth injection would def help the stock injectors but Green Giants and E85 would be a more reliable source of high octane. Especially so for E85 setups on the new DI 1.4T. 100% E85 (pump) on PI setups have seen as high as 108oct, where as 100% E85 (pump) on DI configured engines have seen as high as 160oct.

    Water Meth is excellent
    Home depot sells 50/50 mix for $2 gallon
    It has me up around 220whp on stock injectors.

    Im stuck on the stock injector because due too tuning limitations. Even BnR wont tune me. He only will do a re-cored gtx14. But i love my gtx26 size turbo, much more dramatic turbo noises, full boost at 3000 rpm, quick spool. More imporantly lower EGT's with enough room for track days finally.

    Just need a haltec and injectors, or a really clever tune on stock ecu.
    I should get hold of Morgan Walker, is he the MPfab guy?

    I think water/meth is pretty much our only option here in Canada, maybe they figure its too cold up here for E85? . Did you build your own Exhaust manifold for the Turbonetics? Or fab up a flange for the existing manifold? I've been thinking about making my own turbo setup but besides BNR there isn't any way of getting a reliable tune in Ontario (That I can find).

    A haltec is probably the best way to tune I would think, They actually don't even seem to cost that much considering what you get.

    I apologize, you did email us and I totally forgot to get back to you and you got buried under my pile of emails. I can definitely tune your car. What limitations are you talking about with the injectors?

    Cant use a normal intake like the K&N kit,
    So i have a hand built 3" intake with bypass return and 2 PCV returns
    MAF tuning = Difficult

    At this point im willing to take a second crack at it with EFI live and a pro helping me.
    If your down to tune me; I would like to get a tune, 60lb injectors and maybe a fuel pump on order.
    Im nervous after my last push self tuning with hp tuners, wreaked my valve seals and turbo seals
