Is my tune to conservative?
Well, I'm currently running 8lbs of boost with 18* timing (locked) through the intercooler. I run 92+ octane with no hint of detonation. Also, the fuel pressure is stock (non adjustable).
A week or so ago I accidentally put 87 octane in her (old habits die hard). I detected no hints of detonation whatsoever.
I'll be checking the plugs again today to make sure everything is fine with the current tune.
Anyways, with the gt40p heads and the intercoolerâ€¦would you guys see a problem with running 12-14 psi on pump gas (besides lifting the heads)?
I'm also curious if you think my tune is currently to conservative. Ultimatelyâ€¦I know it will be on me to find out the limitsâ€¦but I'd like to know a good starting point and a the areas which people start having difficulties (in regards to timing, boost, pump fuel etc.).
