Unfortunately the Mrs put 91ron in last fillup instead of 98ron, Since the last WOT i did the engine mounts, spark plugs, intake manifold gaskets and ported/cleaned intake and throttlebody and put a uniflow foam/oil filter in the factory box. Going away this weekend so will have to cycle in some 98ron again and retest.

WOT results

BP98 Before
5600RPM 8429hz MAF
4000RPM 597 Cylair

91Ron After
5600RPM 8572hz
4000RPM 609 Cylair

Same Times 0-100 and Pretty close IAT temps 14 vs 19c

shifts good, you could see on the logs especially 1-2 shift peaking up 1500rpm slip before and taking over a second, now it's 1second or less and less 1000rpm slip, will have to do a WOT run again once i get some 98ron through it.

was up at the bay, went and visited Brad, gave the wagon a run not bad power fully stock, tweaked flash pcm tune and polished plenum. Kicking myself that i didnt' take up the S/C PCM and adaptor loom to test back to back. Had a little converter slip at the start on the last run for the 147.
