MKC cooks up another 400whp Corn-Fed Evo

craig-dekat-2007-evo-9-se-vibrant-3-5-fmic-mkc-piping-kelford-272s-id-1000-11Craig brought us his beautiful 2006 Evo 9 SE to up the power on pump gas and also have an E85 tune as well.  After some discussion on the power he was looking for along with a clutch to hold the power, we decided on a new Vibrant 3.5" FMIC and MKC 2.5" Custom Aluminum  Piping setup to compliment the 3" Turbo Back Exhaust the car already came in with. 

craig-dekat-2007-evo-9-se-vibrant-3-5-fmic-mkc-piping-kelford-272s-id-1000-10 The factory air box was not able to be retained with the new 2.5" Intercooler Piping, so the factory intake tube was retained, and a MAF adapter and cone filter were added to clear the piping.  For fueling needs we added the standard Walbro 255 HP Fuel Pump kit and the tried and true ID 1000 injectors that we use in all of our builds here at MKC.  Along with these parts, we also added some Kelford 272 MIVEC cams which compared to other Evo 9's that I've done on E85 and 3opsi on stock cams; this mod was good for 10 -15whp and wtq over the stock cams throughout the RPM range.

700 plus WHP Honda on E85

justin-c-1997-honda-civic-b18c-81mm-topmount-gt35r-dual-walbro-id2000-hondata-s300-2I had the luxury of tuning an exceptionally well built 1997 Honda Civic hatch back this past weekend.  Justin came to us earlier this year for an E85 tune on the ID2000 injectors, but from the outset of that session we were doing quite a bit of troubleshooting as the car came in with a code 9 CEL.  After some discussion of whether to switch to another ecu or tuning solution, Justin took the car back home to talk with HonData about the issue with either the S300 unit or the ECU itself giving us a halt to tuning.

justin-c-gt35r-id2000-civic-700-whpOnce on the dyno this weekend we had zero issues whatsoever, besides NOT making power. With a quick sync of the ignition timing it was on to tuning, at 15psi is cracked off over 460whp.  Next we upped the boost to 20psi and it made over 530whp, and at 25psi it was north of 610whp.  After some cool down we turned the boost up some more as the injectors were barely being used, and fuel flow/pressure was fine from the FullBlown Dual Walbro fuel setup; So at 30psi it was just under 700whp, but at 33psi we made 715whp.
