Mmmmmmmm, good.

I considered buying a 2 11 and wondered what you could do.

I haven't contacted you again regarding my FF 275 tune, did you ever do that job for Forcedfed yet?

it's the header. I suspect this is car has no cat also. Without the header, gotham tune on these cars is 237whp (w/decat). Header adds 20 up top which is almost what I got.

Be interesting to compare with the latest 211 ECU.

that graph does show the irratic nature of the base 255 map but the new 260 one is in a completely different league and makes the car more driveable on the road.

+1 on the header. I bought it for the quality and the decent flexible braided joint section (and because it looks pretty ;)), but it made a lot of power, too.

i'll know tomorrow probably, supposed to be retuning a 260 211 then.

its not a stock gotham 265 either, i redid the cam profile and the spark advance on this car too.

Just curious but what type of gas was used for the tune?

91 octane? 93 octane?

From experience I know that CA's 91 octane is probably close to if not the worst in the nation.

Damn that is sick! I'm 100% sure this dyno reads 167whp/120wtq for NA cars. Not sure how much pressure drop there is with the cup intercooler, but I suspect if you drop this tune in my car with RLS intercooler, it will be +270whp and +180wtq. :D

We got 7hp mid range and 5hp peak from the header. The rest is the tune.

Did you get those gains just from installing the header without any retuning? I have heard repeatedly that the header goofs up the stock tuning, usually running very lean, although maybe the 211 tune is more forgiving.
