    Wow, dropping from 14.6 to 13.4 with stock hardware still, very nice Brian, well done.
    Need official EFILive help, please go here.
    For tuning support please post your questions on this forum (or other auto forums).
    Sorry if I don't respond to your PM, don't take it personal.

    Great job!!! LOL, I ran a 14.6 in my automatic Verano stock...

    (correction, more like 14.75 I guess? but I am pretty sure the ATS would blow my doors off )

    Which type or brand of methanol / water injection do you recommend, and do you sell the kits yourself? From your results it seems like it made a huge difference. Did you run the identical tune and just spray it?

    Thank you! Is the 50 hp the result of injection PLUS tune, or can be gained over the stock tune or any modded tune (I think the first one). Also, at your convenience could you PM me about the smartest way to buy this (perhaps though you)? That is a lot of $$$ for a washer fluid reservoir...

    The results are from injection plus tuning - you can see overlays of the stock, tuned, and tuned with meth/water on my user forum here:

    The Snow Performance Stage 2 GM MAF Boost cooler is the system I use. I think it is a great deal for $455 for what you get in the system and Snow Performance is a great company to work with. As with anything, the devil is in the details and Snow Performance has the best system on the market in my opinion, which is why I work with them (and the same reason I work with EFILive!). Since you are in Florida and have easy access to E85 you might be interested in E85 tuning instead since the necessary hardware is only ~ $100. See the discussion on flex fuel tuning my ATS on my forum also.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Brian, thanks for the excellent info as always.

    Suprisingly I do not have easy access to E85. I live right smack in the middle of Miami, and there are only about 2 places to get ethanol, none close to me.

    My goal with this car is to be a true daily driver that can be filled with 93 octane top tier fuel whenever and wherever needed. Until E85 becomes more readily available that is...

    Slightly different topic - what's your take on using "Boost Juice" vs. "windshield washer fluid". Technically, can optimal results be obtained if mixed properly?

    I run "Turbo Power" windshield washer fluid - 50/50 methanol water for $2.67/gallon at home depot in Canada (I cross the border just to buy it - usually 6 cases at a time).

    Running on 46% Ethanol and spraying methanol/water tonight it ran 13.1 seconds @ 103.5 mph in the 1/4. 0-120 mph in 18.9 seconds, 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
