E-85, 12:1 compression, zetec block w/ ported SVT head ... tune?

Have you done one?
Can you do one? (at least running so I can log for you to tune better)

Planning on having this done by the end of next month if all goes well.

Also, how do I log WBO2 with RPM?
I'll have a PLX unit to do this with, but have never done this before. S&G I put my digital timing light on the car and it went retarded, 1,800RPM's @ idle my ass, lol. I ask because I assume you need some reference point to give the WBO2 data meaning (obviously).

Quick crash course would help me help you a ton.

I have done a fair amout with e85 and I hope it works better for you then what I have seen it do , thats a lot of compression for e85

Yes I would like to have the wbo2 logged when we start doing WOT runs it helps a lot , there is a hook up on the xcal for analog

So then I don't need to screw with a logging WBO2 unit then? (like that AEM CFM has would work just fine, which I didn't think it would)

That will save me some $, always good.


I'm hoping all my time spent polishing will help with my fuel choice. All speculation right now though. We'll see I guess. 12:1 is with the head decked .030" and the zetec HG, far as I can figure anyways. Think it's best to start with the thinnest and if it doesn't work I'll have the svt HG as a backup (svt head set and buy a zetec HG separate).


Good to know though. I'll hit ya up in in a couple weeks for the X3.

Don't happen to have some ARP head studs and cam bolts ya want to get rid of do ya?

Make sure when you talk to William at C-F-M that the AEM will log , like I said it is better to have it but not a must

No sorry no ARP stuff
