So what everybody is saying basically I should just go ahead and order the stuff pretty much and hopefully go a little faster next time at the track

I think that would be my vote. Like you said the next step for you is pretty much a power adder and I don't think for the price anything else will net you the same gains.

The only way I'm going boost is if I trade this car in on a 2016, my wife probably wouldn't be happy about that right now she wants a new house more than a new car lol

We Just bought our first single family house earlier this month, and I'd REALLY love to boost my car.... Maybe with Bonus money later this year.

I forget, did you put a boss intake on the car? Or are you still on the stock intake?

I would probably say pick up a CJ intake then. That intake will make more power and extend the RPM band. I think it will improve ET more than the Flex Fuel tune. The CJ intake is a free tune revision. So the money you save on the tune can be used towards the cost of the intake set up. You can find used set ups for $1000 or so. Picking up .20-.30 in ET @ 4-5 mph is not uncommon.

I would also need a new nitrous plate for the cj intake

This is typically the case but I think the coyotes respond well to ethanol even in NA applications. I wouldn't hesitate to run the corn sawse

That isn't too expensive and also can find used on occasion. But yes, that will add some to the conversion. Still think the CJ would be more beneficial.

I would imagine any of these new motors would respond well since they all seem to be very high compression now a days.

Also now that Joey is getting tuned by the on3 guy he mentioned something about the motor throwing more timing in on its own when it sees no chance of knock with a better fuel. Think it came up when I mentioned he wouldn't get a gain from running 100oct over regular without a tune.

Correct. They can set the tune to add a limited amount of timing when no knock is detected. But at some point, the extra timing doesn't make more power. So they allow the ECU to add timing to a point. But yes, my point was the addition of E85 is beneficial on these high compression motors as it has extra octane for added timing as well as lower combustion chamber temps. Which also combats detonation.

I'm not a fan of e85. If it helps u get to ur goals do it. U can always just spray it harder. In my honest opinion if u plan to stick with nitrous I would put a standalone fuel system in the car so ur not wasting good race fuel. You won't have to buy a 5 gallon pale everytime u go to the track. That's one thing I wish I did differently on my camaro.

I ordered a vmp boost a pump 47lb injectors and a Lund flex fuel tune this morning, I lack patience lol, if anything it will give me the comfort of knowing I have good gas when I'm spraying and not spend 60+ dollars for a 5 gallon can of unleaded race gas

Just seeing where it takes me, I drive past 3 e85 stations on the way to work so I figured why not, it is getting hit with the 150 next time out, I'll be happy with a 10.50 out of it I think messing with the window switch a little more may net a better 60 as well

i dont know about the lund kit, but if the car doesn't use an ethanol content sensor, then it probably uses the fuel trims and o2 sensors to come up with a 'round about' content.

im my experience it will work great, but not good for switching back and forth without plenty of 'learn' time in between wot runs, as mentioned above.

as i was reading this, i was thinking to myself "i bet brett already ordered this lol" good work look forward to going for a rip

I was going to order it before I even made a thread, then I figured I'll ask Tcg what they think, then this morning I just said fuck it and ordered it lol, If it's any sort of noticeable difference it will be worth it lol

Lund has a "alch_learn" PID that shows on the ngauge. It will display "0" when learning and "1" when the adjustment is done. Not sure if SCT does the same.
