And just so I'm clear, because the street chip is tuned for boost set to 17-18 lbs of boost, the injector duty cycle will max for that boost level correct? And "x" amount of boost beyond that the meth will be covering?

Contact Eric with what you wanna do. Erics alky chip is tailored differently than his pump gas chip.

No, You will have to add some fuel in the chip programming to cover some of the fueling to get to whatever boost you run.  The alky will cover part of it but not all of it depending on what you actually run.

Eric's alky chip actually removes a little gas as the alky comes on but not all of it.  You will be fine but it might run a bit better with the alky chip because it won't be too rich down low...

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Oh ok, makes sense then. I always remove all of my fuel in first gear with the TT chip because of how rich it runs. Now i just need to get some meth( :rofl: ) and see what it does. Thanks for the response.

Alrighty, so my car has been sitting all week due to an excessive work load on my part. I haven't had time to touch it since install. I literally drove it for 2 min. Everything from the alky kit is functioning as it should. I put the 8 oz of water and checked for leaks and all checked out. I'm going to pick up some meth in the morning.


So for the 2 min I drove the car since the alky install, I noticed it feeling pretty good pulling in first gear just spraying water.  :O  It continued to try to turn the tires over so I never really got an opportunity to get into it. I'm guessing that's a good sign.


My question to you all is, when I do put meth in the car and start tuning, I'm to add fuel to the Overall WOT through the chip correct? Since I'm only running the street chip tuned for 17 lbs of boost? I'm hoping I can get the car to be rich in 3rd with the way it's set up now so I'll feel comfortable knowing it was a fuel related issue. I also intend to check for leaks this weekend if the time is there.


Have a good day gents. :cheers:

If your chip was burned for say 17 psi and you add alky, then I would expect it to be slightly richer at 17 psi than it was on straight gas.  You should be able to raise the boost a couple or so psi without adding fuel to the chip...I think.

You have to stop worrying about the theoretical and find out what the car is doing...:)
