              Little bit of an update here. I've finally complete my water-methanol injection install. It took a lot longer than anticipated (approx. 15~ hours), but its finally done and I seriously hope I never have to do that much wiring for a single install ever again. It wasn't hard by any means, it just was extremely... extremely tedious.

              I've mounted the reservoir and pump in the hatch - the pump actually fit perfectly into one of the compartment in the OEM cargo organizer. The methanol line and electrical wires from the hatch are run alongside the OEM harness to the front of the vehicle. The WMI gauge is mounted in the driver side vent in a gauge pod made by Block8Head and the 7 GPH nozzle is mounted in the silicone coupler just post-intercooler. I took the time to make everything clean and organized just in case I ever have to go back and fiddle with something.

              Onto the pics!

                Over the past couple weeks I've been going back and forth with my tuner doing revisions and as of right now both my spring pressure and pump gas tunes are complete! The pump gas tune is pushing ~22psi @ 16C ambient temperature and should put me in the neighbourhood of 320 wHP.

                I've just starting tuning for WMI and have to say that the car is a completely different beast on this map. On just my second revision I'm pushing ~24 psi @ 15C ambient and just over 38 lb/min at 6800 RPM. I should have a couple more revisions left just to smooth out the boost (or raise it even more) and "tidy up" the tune. I'm also hoping that I can dyno the car before it gets too cold so I can get some concrete numbers.

                Here's a shot of my accessport showing peak boost and ignition corrections after my latest datalog.

                  That must be a fun car to tear around in. Should make a solid 30+ more Wheel with the meth set up. You may have mention this already, but are you running a 50/50 mix or 100% meth?

                    Running a 50/50 mix - "Boost Juice" is stuff I'm buying locally :). It makes up for ~7% of the fuelling up top according to my STFT's.

                                      Just finished up tuning today. I hit my goal of 350wHP (vDyno numbers) pretty quickly once I started spraying the water-methanol and my tuner hit me with this...

                                      "The good news is that we are right at your power goal of 350whp. The better news is that we are able to exceed it. Attached is the next iteration increasing performance further."

                                      I went through a couple more revisions with my tuner walking the power up ever so slightly, and in all honesty I kind of losing sight of my original vision of "more power, but not sacrificing longevity". In the end I ended up dialling it back a just tad in the last couple revisions just to keep my mind at ease. At this point in time I'm more than happy with the power the car has, its a perfect power level for a daily driver.

                                      I know some people have strong opinions on virtual dyno numbers, but I honestly believe that if done correctly on a flat stretch of road with no head or tail wind that the numbers it spits out can be quite accurate, or at least be used as a rough gauge for the numbers you should expect on a real dyno (in this case, a dynojet). For anyone curious as to where I left off and what my power curve looks like, I'll post my last vDyno below. The turbo is pushing just over 40 lb/min at 6800 RPM.



                                      I'm pretty sure that's the last of the power mods the car is going to be seeing. There are more than a handful of people running 400+ wHP on the stock block, but at this point in time I don't see myself wanting to push past where I am right now.

                                      So... what's next?



                                      Yup. The plan for winter is to swap out the current Koni/GC combo for Air Lift performance struts with Air Lift 3P management  :-\.

                                      EDIT: Updated with the actual final revision. Slight bump in power.

                                          The pressure rating ("@ X psi") is the pressure at which the compressors are pumping against.

                                          So if the air tank is empty the compressors flow 4.55 CFM of air - this value decreases as more air fills the air tank and there is pressure against the compressors.

                                              So if the air tank is empty the compressors flow 4.55 CFM of air - this value decreases as more air fills the air tank and there is pressure against the compressors.
                                              Right, but wouldn't "empty" be like atmospheric pressure?

                                                I'd definitely like to change it up. I need to find something I like in my bolt pattern which basically leaves me with having to get custom wheels. This isn't really an issue for me, however, I'll wait until the air setup is done and installed so I can see what kind of specs I'd be looking for in the new set.

                                                Yes, it would be atmospheric pressure. However, by convention when discussing CFM at a specific pressure, atmospheric pressure is "0 psi" . We're only concerned with pressures greater than atmospheric.
