hhrfreak, I want to publicly apologize to you. We had some contact long ago about tuning issues and I did not respond due to family issues (92 y.o. mother) and other priorities. Haven't been on the forum much, but, in trying to catch up, I cannot understand why you have so little faith in the strength of the LE5 and went through so much effort and $$$$$. Sorry you have had issues. I've been running about 13 PSI for a few years not without any issues.

In looking at the old tune you sent me, I see a "conflict" in you settings to eliminate issues with the virtual VE in the E67. One says "yes", while the other says "no". Now I see you've contacted css3 from the short bus. Those people scare me! Legends in their own minds that often blow motors. Not sure of his experience with our calibrations Good luck, my man!

No big deal man. Car is running well mechanically and css3 has done a tremendous job with the tuning. I was only able to get 13-15 degrees of timing wot and it would still pick up gobs of kr. Now I am getting 20-22 degrees, the kr is almost nonexistent and it finally drives really well. I thought I could tune, but I am far from understanding everything. I am pullied down to a 2.7 right now and it is a lot of fun...I am planning to rev it out to 7600 and dyno next week.

Got a chance to bump the rev limiter a bit today...hit some cells we didn't cover in the tune so I just made them rich. Going to lean it out a little more and hopefully find some time to dyno next week. Notice the air I am moving... ~40lbs/min...when I dynoed last fall and made 257/233 I was only moving ~32lbs/min

Welcome to the site Dusty

You may not get an answer from the OP since he hasn't been on the site in a while. Remember also that this thread is about 5 years old per the date stamp.

Anyhow. I think the brand of the parts are listed in the 1st post.
