Only problem with that is that it captures the engine speedometer, it doesn't use GPS to see if you're actually hitting 60 mph. If you don't spin there won't be an issue with accuracy, but I can nail about a 1.6 0-60 in the wintertime on some ice using that lol

Until I see more RWD in 11s, I won't bother going Ecutek

I feel confident that with decent air and a 1.8 sixty it'll run an 11 after this new EWG update.
I think you can get it with meth, non-meth guys idk

If I was on an e30 or any mix I would be hitting 11's, I feel my top end dies out.

Likely so, but that's also exactly what I don't want to do is start tinkering with ethanol.. because then I would want to change the fuel pumps.. then I introduce the possible injector issue.. Pandora's box for me

Meth seems like a good alternative too but still has its set of risk factors

Many a meth head have come to the same conclusion.

Exactly why i haven't ran E yet either, I already have the Big bore HP FP and low pressure fuel pump but now just waiting for the injectors.

Meth is easier and cheaper than trying to run a high E content. The integrated JB4 kit has about as low of a risk as possible. I also don't run anything other than WWF and maybe a bottle of HEET if I'm feeling froggy. It's cheap too.

It worked so well on my Q50 that I added a lot onto my >600whp turbo LS1 and saw even better results.

Installed, or just on hand? Just seeing if the 12.3 was with those parts or without.

The fuel pumps are not installed, I have them ready for when the injectors come in I can do everything at the same time.

Wasn’t bad for how heat soaked we all were, should be 11s easy once
Have you dynoed your car? You're Btuned so I was curious of your power output.
I haven’t yet. Still waiting on parts to come in. I know there was someone there with intakes exhaust and jb4 just as heatsoaked as me and my times were faster
