      Since i am building a new block I have a line on a set of JE 11:1.1 comp ratio pistons in 83.5mm
      I am looking for advice on what the issues to avoid are and if i can go this route?
      I have a 15lbs spring in my wastegate so a minium of 15psi and i can tune for anything.
      I assume if i run c16 only i might be able to pull this off.
      any advice whould be great.
      Thanks

      tune accordingly, my old 16v had a comp ratio around that. used to run pretty much at least 40psi on e85

      Yeah i am looking at the Ethonal switch if i go this route.
      So how did you manage to break #3 wristpin?
      I assume i will tune to a lower PSI. I am not looking to make 700whp... My corrado is to
      heavy and my transaxle is to weak.
      Can Kevin Hook me up with an Ignition curve to start with?

      not sure what happened with the wristpin. the clip may have came out. not sure. email kevin and ask. lugtronic@gmail.com. i also used to run c16 with the high comp pistons back in the day.
