    Again Blue and Green are e9 slightly up hill and slightly down hill. Red was a new flat road i found.

    My assumption is i added about 4 total however at 50% i think there is about 2 degrees more timing all around.

    Step one. Install ecu and learn to tune and or have it tuned.
    Step two. Install injectors and retune.
    Step three. Install turbo parts and bits. get it running with out leaks. DO NOT DRIVE IT. Idling should be ok

    if you make a timing change is that virtual dyno program repeatable enough to see it?

    Eh i would its possible but i have not been able to. If you had a clear road where you could accellerate every time on at the same point then possibly. For me i tend to always avoiding traffic but i try to do it at the same part of the road.

    Ha this place is the cheapest and usually doesnt have good gas however it is the only one with e85. I was shocked at how much cheaper it was then high test.

    Per Gallon.

    Drove it again today and cold start needs some more work with the e50. I heard of this in the past so i will see if i can tune this out of it given i can fill up on e85 almost always. Station is 6 miles away from me.

    Cold start is beginning to be an issue again, however i am not really sure how to handle the e85 cold start tune vs pump gas tune. I am wondering if i should have two similar tunes one for each or if i can tune it at around 50 and get the best of both worlds. Thoughts?

    Also i have started back up on the wet sanding am making some progress moving around the car, panel by panel.
