My shop has been really busy as late so the VDC work has been slim. But, I am still awaiting parts from Raptor before taking my front end apart and installing all the mechanicals, so no big deal. I have my software, tactrix, LC-1 wideband, egt, Denso 410cc injectors, electric water pump and piping. Programming is still being worked on.
Yes, I reflashed the comp with changes using the stock mechanical. Ed does this all the time for owners that want a change without modifications. My fuel mileage jumped to 27 mpg on the 2nd version, and the rev limit was increased to 7k with the 3rd version.
I am going to keep the exhaust as quiet as possible. The H6 exhaust is already large enough to handle to output load. I may have to install larger CATs to make up for the boosted levels, but again, the fuel map will tell all. If needed, I can install a pair of CATs cheap.
That's right. My money. Again Normy, the intercooler is not absolutely necessary at this time. It will not detonate with proper fuel and ignition mapping. If my math is wrong in calculating the intake temperature, an effective water/air intercooler setup is only $300 and an hour or two to install. If I blow a motor, another H6 is available. I don't own $30k+ in tools for naught. I am still working on another optional cooling system, but the practicality for mass production is out of there. If it proves well, it will be a one off for my car only, but may be duplicated with modifications for custom fitting. At this time, it only lives on paper.
