What about that badass engine???
i am still on the breakin tune, another 200 Miles.

Also I was no longer in a hurry to put them quick since the tuners direct family member passed away and was told to wait and that it will be worth it.

So, waiting but drives great. For breakin i was told 1000 miles. Also looking at darton sleeves breakin process it is also 1,000 miles

Sounding all good looking forward to you finishing your break in.

I did the break in and ran about 1300 miles went for a tune and was told it needs another 1000 as the engine was still tight.

After the extra 1000 the tuner magically added another 27bhp giving at that time 439whp.

So basically you may need additional mileage to loosen the engine

sorry guys not much to update, I had waited for about 7 weeks to hear from nishan at sp3 but about 2 werks ago... 9 weeks today. I remembered my lifetime tune with Adam. I did 3 revisions, car pulling great at 24psi in 3rd revission. I got some o2 sensor codes that explain some jerky activity between 1k and 2k.

then, last week retina issues that evolved to a retina dettachment and got vitrectomy 4 days ago. it was a macula~on detachment so 馃

So yea, car will just sit for now.

Wow I was blueballed for months waiting to see video of this thing ripping. Please take your time, heal up.
On another note, why was nishan taking so long to tune the car??
I was told a close family member had passed away and to be patient and would get tuned once he sorted things out.

@mexrs , your RS is that fast that your eye popped out?!

I am kidding, praying for your "speedy" recovery.
I thought of that too 馃槅




I did have 2 codes come last week that go when cleared.

p2196 code show but no engine light. "o2 sensor signal biased / stuck rich bank 1 sensor 1" .... cleared it, went away.

p0172 system too rich (bank1) cleared it and its gone.

I was told to replace o2 sensor.. might order to have it ready

what is the difference?
The top one is the front wide-band for true AFR measurement while the bottom one is the narrow-band simply for monitoring cat output.

Hope the eyes are all sorted for you sounded painful.

How's the tuning coming along
The operation was on April 12 and got retina attached and silicon oil fill lol. I will have it sucked out in September or October the latest.

I have resumen tuning and never changed the o2 sensor although I have it. I believe it was tube related with earlier tuner. it would jerk too much between 1 and 2k rpm and guessing it was fue.related and triggered the code I was getting.

Ryan and pdtuning has tuned so.far, no more codes. runs very smooth 1k to 2k rpm and above. My limitation is 91 oct.

Once we are done on that, we do WMI tune. I also thought of tuning for racegas concentrate additive. RACE GAS | Racing Fuel Concentrate or VPracing brand. If bump to 96oct that would yield nice power.

ALSO got covid 2 weeks ago. I had mainly fever a few days and back to normal. I got worried since I had no vaccine but then all my vaccinated friends got sick too and some worst off. looks like omicron gets everyone who comes in contact with it.

Have not posted Since still tuning but I am happy with it so.far
