Just read through this thread today and it's like binge watching a series up to the finale in real time. Hope this sorts out your issues @Acadia18. Great Build!

Still a couple episodes left!

And then, there's next season to look forward to...

Honestly though, I'm running out of things to throw money at :ROFLMAO:

Like Jim said, I'm sure mounts will come eventually. Probably the BFI ones. With most other bigger purchases done, I'm sure I'll look at a 9.2" MIB2.5 system. From there, who knows!

Best of luck tonight. I'm confident it's good to go.

I am too given my partial log at the top of 3rd.

The good news- Autotech responded to my inquiry in about an hour, and opened up and RMA for my internals no questions asked.

The lame news-

Was going to give you a like for the good Autotech news and then you end it with saying it's raining and no logging.

I don't know how you're standing the drama to get this done. It's killing me. 😂

shit I'm still not done with my tuning and the last map i got was like 10 months ago - it was "ok when you install the MPI you have, i will engage that and the 4 bar sensor" almost a year later and still have not installed the MPI haha.

You know, this would have been a perfect opportunity to install the MPI, and sell your HPFP to someone else 🤣🤣

At this point, I'm pretty happy with the performance of the EQT tune. I didn't want to sacrifice reliability for power and try to eek out every last little bit. I'm hitting 30 - 31psi, which is right where I wanted it to be (if possible). I could possibly see another revision if Nick needs to clean up this one.

With the fueling issues finally ironed out, I'm sure from here I'll be able to bang out the Sneeky one pretty quickly as well.

Since it looks like both tunes will be completed soon, bought @Escape Hatch's Dragy and we can see where these things land!

Maybe I'll ask for some kind of certification that the replacement will function as advertised :ROFLMAO:

Hence why I waited till the new pump showed up to mention me having a MPI kit in the garage 😂😂

Alright. Fruitful night logging.

EQT -
3rd Gear Log
2nd through 4th Log

I probably won't pass these over to Nick just yet, because I know what he'll say. They're riddled with knock (which they are pretty much). This weekend, I'll make the 40 minute drive to the one gas station I know of in the area that has an E85 pump, and hope it's working. I could probably call in advance, I guess. I don't mind going back every month or two, filling up 5 - 10 gals, and just adding in a gallon at home every time I fill my tank.

Sneeky -
Log 1
Log 2
Log 3
Log 4

Well, rail pressure is fixed. Logs 1 and 4 look pretty much as expected. Log 2 looks like it has some slight wheel spin right when I get to boost.

Log 3 is the concerning one to me. At the start of the pull, I accidentally hit my paddle and shifted down to 2nd. Hadn't even hit 3200rpms in 3rd, so not that big of a deal. A second later the DSG auto upshifted back to 3rd. The end of the log is what's concerning. Usually, even in manual mode I let the DSG shift on it's own, and it goes from 3rd to 4th around 7200rpms. For whatever reason this time, it didn't. At the top of 3rd it felt like my power cut out, I let off the throttle, and things were normal. No EPC, no lights, etc... Looking at the log, it looks like it went up to 7500 - 7600rpm. When I got home, I pulled code P0219 Engine Overspeed Condition. On my way back home, I did do one more log to see if things were fine, which is log 4, and things were back to normal. Any ideas? Will mention it to Sneeky.

So happy the fuel problem is fixed.

When you said the one time it felt like the power cut out is when it hit the rev limiter. Mine has inexplicably done the same thing occasionally running the EQT DSG tune. It only does it once in a while so I haven't said anything to EQT about it.

Are you happy with the power so far?
