    the timing issue has been long discussed- and that's why the vafc hack is really only good for up to 10 psi ish on your average t3/t4... 250- whp range...

    others run it higher, but IMO, its risky...

    i can't find the document i was looking for.... basically, it talked about how even with the btm devices, you still run a risk, as it compensates for it.

    if you can afford it, spring for a hondata. its REALLY worth the extra 200 bucks.

    It's not my ride, the guy has got all the stuff and want's me to set it up. He's running a vortech SC at 8-10 psi. I need to get my info straight so I can tune with what he has.

    is it (after/inter)cooled? if not... i'd run it rich to keep it cool to reduce detonation.. 12.1-11.8 across the board... i'd also recommend he get an EGT gauge to keep things monitored....

    I agree with using Hondata they got their s--t together, another one I'm working on is waiting for the programable for the k-series. It should be released in Feb. that will be the all time shizznitt for Hondata tuning. :worthy:
