Looks like it may be time for one of you three to pull out a couple more enabling technologies like water/methanol injection or knock sensors and set a higher point.
Well, Don you have a higher point out there at 13:1 but I think you told me you don't run that level.
No, I don't go above .8. I can't tell the difference between 500 and 525 hp driving around, but as your chart shows, it seems the engine knows. However, when I built my car, I built it for drivability and for me, that's torque and throttle response. The torque curves for my motor, whether its 525 or 500 hp, are nearly identical, so I see no need for 1 bar.
