I don't remember where my tuner took it .. sorry :/
No worries, I'll get it figured out. I need to get the other things figured out first anyway.

I'll keep the thread updated as I get things figured out. Should hopefully happen in the next couple weeks.

You should try DragCartel 2.2 or 3.2 cams

I think the BC stage2 will hold you back a lot on power.
I would love to, perhaps once money allows I will try something else. I picked up the BC stage 2 for cheap, and if nothing else, I figured they would be better than stock.

Ran out of time, it was 10pm, tuner had to leave, and as a courtesy to the shop owner, we had the car strapped down with back facing out (garage door open). Outside temp quickly became inside the shop temp (~35 degrees) so we decided to call it a night.

Also with what I believe is air entering the header at the slip joints causing the wideband to read leaner than it actually is, I didn't want to push things. I think I'm at the upper end of the safe limit on pump as is, so before we do power tuning, I want to make sure the wideband is reading properly. I may end up moving the sensor if welding the slip joints doesn't seem feasible or fix the issue.

pretty cool, one day I will have one of the 8th gens. always thought they were some of the best riding cars that are inexpensive.
I have a similar setup in my eg, interested in your power numbers tomorrow.

Speaking of the plm header, how is the fitment on the k24? Is it close to hitting the firewall at all?
Extremely close, mine hits on downshifts, but not accel or cruising. I did motivate the firewall in a tad when I had the header out for welding, that seems to have taken care of things for the most part. I still have minor contact on harsh downshift, but I can deal with that. Next time the engine or header is out, I'll do a little more work on the firewall.

Got to the dyno for a bit tonight after work, made more progress on the tune, but it's not done yet. Ran out of time with the tuner again. The tune is moving in the right direction at least, still have some things to work on.

Here's the graph from today, I also threw my original baseline on there so you can see how much of an improvement I've made.


Here's vid of one of the dyno runs

Dyno sounds and looks good. The q300 is so quiet I'd swear your intake is almost all I hear. Been debating if I should have the plm welded up so I may go ahead and do that to avoid pulling it off again. Wonder if injecting the mount would stiffen it up enough to not have to motivate the firewall.

I injected the front and rear roll mounts on mine, it helps a decent amount in my opinion. I don't think that alone will be enough to keep it from hitting. It will probably also vary a bit depending on your assembly of the header.

Thanks for the compliments, I love how it sounds, the q300 is great. I also have the gen 1 AEM intake, not sure if that is holding me back, but I plan to get something else in the future.

For anyone that is curious about why it is so hard to make power at high altitude, I give you this to consider:

Run Conditions
65.79 degrees F
25.19 in-Hg barometric pressure
16% humidity
19 degrees F aprox dew point

Using these factors, the DA (density altitude) for my run last night was aprox
12,704'

Ugh.

That's crazy. Spent some time high altitude training in the army so I know how hard it can be to breathe. I may spring for the hasport rear mount to help control the movement with the header. It's only about 100 I think if you buy it separately.

Yes you can buy it "alone". It helps a lot and there's no "extreme" vibrations when using the 62A. You will feel it when you start in 1st gear or when a/c comes on during idle but nothing crazy.
