 I'm ready to drain the break in oil in 300 miles and start the tuning/datalog process so the timing couldn't be better.

DX, take out that space after SIGNED in the LOR equation (as Rich pointed out), it should work then.  Even so, remember, it IS a RATIO, not an absolute number, so the way to see what it does is to see how fast it goes to -1 each time you add the ACES IV at fillup time, say with 87 gas, while updating the tune itself (87 then 91 then 93 & so on).  no need to say that datalogging is absolutely critical to determine remaining headroom and avoid limphome mode.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

DX, you talked to Bryan already?

We spoke for a bit yesterday. I encouraged and invited him to come over the forum to answer questions for a very interested crowd. He didn't commit but said he has worked a few ecoboost engines.

I corrected the LOR formula and it is working now. I did think and maybe hope it would be an actual octane number. I may play with formula a bit to see if it changes. Or has someone already tried that.

Im still no go on the AWD status or modulation.

We spoke for about 45 minutes tonight.

He will be joining us after I send him some contact info this evening.

I will be moving forward once he's done his necessary research about our platform.

Awesome. I will be buying too some time next week. If you are running meth, ask about his catalysts for meth users.

I would prefer to attain my goals without meth, I'm hoping Brian can assist me with that.

This would be awesome. 100 octane tune would be great :)

I suspect the "100" octane would be for street use, maybe even for dragstrip, but nothing that requires more continuous operation in that range.  Continuous operation is where the real thing is required.

I am interested in the entire range of offerings BND has to offer, but would like to evaluate/research each product's reported data ceteris paribus.

With Torrie's assistance, I'm going to throw everything I can at it.... >:D

Call him, you won't be disappointed.

We spent 45 minutes on the phone this evening talking about cars and lubricants.

Good idea to involve a proven tuner... I'm really interested in this stuff, but "octane effect" as on the website is almost certainly a bit different than octane rating (ie, the RMS method we see on the pumps).

As is E-85's "effective octane" of 160 when direct injected.....

But if the end result is the same?
