Oh that's awesome! It is a manual
Laugh and ignore the "Crunk" wording on the intercooler, that's been removed lolalso, pics?
I upgraded the head gasket, but haven't installed any of the internals since a previous suggestion (if I wanted to drive on it) not to do anything too major until we can adjust AFR at least.Still oem compression and internals or did you upgrade the head gasket to the one they send and upgrade the internals?
Push button or key start manual car?
Oem clutch or upgraded?
What spring/lowest boost you can run right now?
Boost gauge on the car?
Why do you need a spare ecu if you can flash the ecu in the car now? FYI you can't just get an ecu from another car and it work in your car.
Considered possibly using a VT ecu to tune with? I know a member on here has an accent 1.6 and cranked the car on a VT ECU but had to do some modification for it to work.
Damn! a 64mm! Keep your secretsSo you installed the head gasket to lower the compression?
Correct it needs a baseline tune in it for sure before you run it much. But also needs the fuel in it you want to tune it for and all the support mods.
Key start manual I can tune.
Oem clutch may be fine. Will have to see if and when it gives up.
Can calculate boost in some cases over what the map sensor can read/report but here not sure you'll be able to thus why you need an accurate standalone gauge to go by.
No need for spare ecu if you can flash the oem ecu. Save the oem ecu tune and you will always have it to flash back into the ecu in 5 minutes. But it should pass inspection on the tuned file.
The 60 mm will help flow better but my 64 mm is the top dawg! ;-)
Thank you! That is partially why I am doing it, just to prove it lolTo begin with, I just want to say that I applaud the hell out of the effort being put in here... I'm often a fan of doing things just to prove that they can be done, so good on you for that!
Second, though -and this is entirely unrelated to the performance part- I don't want to be the guy who lets his buddy walk around with his zipper down, so uh... are you aware that the eyelids are on backward? I realize it might be deliberate since the whole build is a break from the norm, but thought I should mention it just in case it was not a deliberate choice 😬

Thank you thank you! Ok, I won't be producing anything till then. I don't fully understand the tuning or ECU stuff. If we has a call, I'd like to include my buddy (THN54), because he works on luxury sport cars and knows more than I doWe will need to get on a phone call to setup the app for proper logs. Current setup is not producing a great log at all so between that and cringing at the inaccurate data plus knowing how wonky the oem tune is in general and imagination of when boost is thrown at it I had to stop looking.
For my sanity and the engine health do not go into boost until it can be tuned on a safe base map bare minimum. No more logs until after the app is setup better.
