Made my 1st pass to test my E85 port injection system. Broke my own personal best 1/4 mile ET record (set while burning a mix of 75% 93 octane pump gas and 25% VP X85 canned ethanol) by .008 seconds. And I did it with ethanol pump fuel (which tested as E65, which probably means 65% ethanol and 35% unknown liquid).

Looks like it was another eco that got you, correct. Bummer, but it was really darn close.

At Memphis right now getting ready for the hot rod power tour start tomorrow. :D:D

No, it was a Coyote V8 Mustang, I'm the only non GT, non V8 in my class. Good luck on the Power Tour! Be safe, have fun!!

That's pretty cool that you were able to get on a Dyno! Were you able to data log while being tested?

No did not get any data logs on the dyno there was a good line waiting and it was just so hot I did not want to heat soak the engine any more than needed. Not really happy with the scaling of the graph since it stops at 5k rpm when my pulls were from 3K to 6K, but for 80 bucks for 3 pulls I guess I can't complain too much.

Hp is a very nice flat curve and tons of low rpm torque, I think if it had been cooler outside it would have made better numbers.

I think you're right! My last run was in the heat of the day and I ran out of power early in my RPM range. I did data log the run, plus recorded the weather conditions. Just haven't had the time (and energy) to even download them to my computer.
But, just like you, I had a good time!!

I am still recovering from the weeklong 100 degree days as well myself, aint no young buck anymore. I am still learning the OBD MX features also so not totally familiar with everything I need to data log and exactly how to do it, or download to my pc to view them better.

I have to go get left front tire patched from picking up a nail in it somewhere in Pensacola, but was able to just air it up and make it home all the way from Florida to Atlanta and home to Alabama with no issues.

Always nice to bring something home from a trip... even if it's a nail! You may want to keep it or build it into your next fab project!?? Even after making several trips to the scrap yard, I still have a pile of metal from years of projects. I keep telling myself that I'm going to fab a lamp or something useful one day... lol!
