Ok, we are back to this wonderful chestnut. Yes people, $10 devices that plug into your car cannot be trusted to reprogram your ECU, increase your HP, your fuel economy, cure your ED or even make your poop smell like fresh baked cinnamon rolls.
I describe how the Shell Opel P-1 got 376Mpg, and how I plan on getting at least 40Mpg on my RX-8. I also go into why rotary engines may be uniquely suited for lean burn.
Errata: The Opel was a 4 cylinder not a V-8.

I demonstrate real closed loop timing at idle by measuring the Peak Pressure Point (PPP) with Ion Sensing. If I can get this working in boost it should add HP vs a conservative tune, and if I can get this working in cruise it should increase fuel economy.
I the Blue Beast broke down on my way home from work. So I did the natural thing and fixed it while still in my work shirt. I can neither confirm or deny that the problem was my fault. (Spoiler: I got lazy and busted an old belt that should have been replaced.)
