Ill pass.
Give Chris @ russo performance in sydney a call and ask them if you need to replace injectors on a series 2, cammed n charged commodore.
Series one injectors are running close to max cycle with a biggish cam and e85 say (340ish rwkw) but series 2 injectores made to run on e85 from the factory cycle quicker/more then series 1. Don't need to replace the fuel pump either.

They must be running #### all boost and running lean cuz the injectors will be at max duty cycle. An ls3 macs the duty cycle on its injectors at 450rwhp.

No, just getting sick of people reading one thing on the Internet saying what they want to hear and ignoring anyone else who's been down this road before.
Brb I'm just going to take the two 044's out of my car, Chuck some ls3 standard injectors back in and load my 570hp 98 octane tune back into the ecu.

Did you get zapped again playing with fan capacitors mate?......

Lol. Kidding.

I think that's a great idea. You should pit the stock injectors and pumps back in your EVO too. Might make it go faster.....

on 98 it will hold, on Eflex or United E85 you max it out.

Who did I ring?
Im saying for you to ring and ask someone who has done it. Plenty of times.

Ls3 Injectors aren't suited to e85 as they dont flow enough. The injectors on the ssv s2 etc.. flow around 30% more then the older injectors.

Im very close to 450rwhp n/a now.
Im running higher comp and am about to have the flex fuel sensor Installed and run e85.
Are you saying it will lean out or only on boosted applications?

Boosted will lean out massively. And n/a will still be leaning out badly.

Not anymore, a us company is producing a variable pressure blower that you can adjust from the drivers seat, I think it works in the same manner as cvt,a belt around two pulleys with a changeable circumference.

As an alternative to a manual adjustment... Been around for a while now and if someone wants a super charger that can be changed from mild to wild, street to strip without ripping of pulleys? I think turbos the way to go but, to each his own.

Boost controller needs to be installed by the tuner who sets the max boost to the ideal engine tune, then wind it way down for the idiots.
Otherwise it's a self-destruct controller isn't it?

why buy a 6L v8 and worry about fuel economy is my first question.

They are both different to drive, PD blower has that low end stomp, but if you love to mercilessly thrash a car cam goes well too.

big difference in price, say with a PD blower at 7psi you will make approx 360rwkw, with a decently streetable cam might make 320rwkw, is that 40rwkw worth near $7-10k to you?
KW's are an imaginary number calculated by how much torque the car makes at a set rpm? Either way a supercharger with **** all over a cam when it comes to torque increase.
