I didn't tune the car for meth as a supplementary fuel source. I use the meth just for IAT's. I think that's where guys get into trouble regarding engine longevity - upping the boost and adding meth to make up for the inadequacy of the stock fuel system.
Ahhhh ok I see. When do u set the meth to kick
In? I'm running similar setup with spec r clutch and baskets. And will be adding srm 3076r Garrett turbos soon.

What upgradesd fuel pump are you using and how come you are stacking the jb4?

I replaced the old LPFP and both HPFP with new oem units. Yes, I’m maxing out the stock fuel trims without the meth.

I am in contact with Spool regarding calibration of their FX HPFP - trying to determine who can reliably calibrate them near me. Otherwise I’m just going to let the stock fuel system dictate my power potential.

The meth setup is controlled by the BMS FSB paired with the JB4, which I’m also using for datalogging. That’s the reason for the JB4/flash combo.

I’m not necessarily looking for the highest horsepower I can achieve - I’m looking for a safe/reliable/functional increase in power over stock. That’s my main goal.

Sage advice for anyone looking to mod their car for more power. One thing I learned as a motorcycle racer is never get greedy with the throttle.

1200 miles...nothing but positives to report on the clutch.
