Who gives a * about what you think? You come here with a snide remark without even knowing situation and make assumptions you know nothing about. Keep your opinions to yourself if you want to attack somebody for simply expressing their frustration.

I think you may have misunderstood his remark.

It sounded like in his experience, Kenton has not experienced comments made similar to the ones that you have made, from executive level professionals.

I found your remarks odd as well, but I can also relate to being extremely frustrated with progress at times.

My aplogies to Max PSI and other members I've offended

I had a talk with Mike just now and understand now how hard he and Nick are working. Basically around the clock. If I had known how busy they were I would be more patient and understanding. They obviously have some logistics issues with Nick and Mike being thousands of miles apart and having to physically tune the cars and not just remotely.

Mike told me the car is ready for pickup and is running fine and that any further tweaks and refinements can be done by mailing the ECU to them. This would be the method until they get the tools and capability to send the files via email and have the receipient load it onto the ECU.

I told them I would rather have them hold the car for another 2 weeks to perfect the stage 2 tuning. I'm sure everybody else who owns or thinks about about purchasing a stage 2 SMG kit would prefer that as well since the kit would be even better and less wait time.

I'm sorry for sounding arrogant and I don't want to alienate fellow members here as we are all on here for the same reason. Enjoying and sharing our enthusiasm and excitement of our cars.

This what my car made the other day at maximum psi. Stage 2 somwhere around 17psi from what mike said. Can't wait to get her back. Something to consider SuperFlow dyno reads approx 6-7% less than a typical dynojet.

I'm guessing that is on MS109?

Awesome numbers!!! Right around 700rwhp as advertised (when adding 6-7%). I can't wait to dyno mine this week!

Now that my stage 1 is running 100%.. I want to go stage 2. But im holding my breath for e85 setup. Traveling so far and paying $80 for 5 gallons of race gas is not worth it to me. Would rather run a pump + meth setup if e85 doesnt come soon enough. Its just more convient. I wonder how much lbs of boost i can run with meth

The Max PSI manifolds aren't ideal or setup for meth. I wouldn't mess with it because I feel like meth never works properly. There's always an issue with the pump not working and etc. I would wait for E85.

I like 50/50 water meth.. It's been proven and used in FI aircraft engines since WWII...I have run 15 psi with stock compression making as much as 640 wheel and 520 torque. It's very reliable as compared to pure meth setup. Also needs to be setup correctly with proper fail safes in place such as a flow meter , pressure monitoring and safety cut switch to low boost... etc.. I would love to run e85 but it's not available and race gas is a pain so it's a great alternative. Tune is very important.

Well the install would be done by maximum psi them selves.. I already got the quote. I would be using aquamist hfs 3 or 6 which is the only sytem they said they would install. I honestly would barely use the race gas tune. Meth or e85 are most convient for me

Definetly would be 50/50 or 60/40 setup.. Tune would be done by nick and mike

I would say about 97%.. I had to go back for another flash. I also want to change all of my throttle position sensors to see if that would help get it to 100%.. I remeber reading some dude with smg solve his problem by changing the sensors.. And my ems light ocassionaly came on before i got the kit, but hasnt since i got the kit. So honestly i should have been changed it

My Ride: Max PSI Stage 2
I got the new and final tune on Wednesday, but didn't install the ECU until this morning and she runs PERFECTLY!!!

After I put the ECU in, I reset adaptations and then took it out for a spin immediately. During the initial test drive, the car shut off on me approaching a stop sign (car was warm). I was like, "Oh boy, not this!!!" After that, for the first 10 miles or so, the RPMs would drop like the car wasn't getting enough fuel and it wanted to shut off (fuel pressure was normal). I stopped in at a restaurant to get a bite to eat with a friend, got back in the car, and it never happened again; not even with the dump valve open.

The car idles PERFECTLY without the RPMs bouncing, and the shifts are smooth. No check engine lights. All AFR's, Boost, Oil Pressure, and FPR's seem to be normal.

I was scheduled to do some dyno pulls today, but I was running late and the shop got busy with 8 second Cobras. Because of that I am scheduled for tomorrow at 12PM. I HOPE to get dyno pulls with MS109, if not, I will have just pump gas and I will do MS109 pulls sometime after Mfest.

One does not simply have their car shut off...without a fair reason...
