700 plus WHP Honda on E85
I 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.
Once 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.
