I've seen a few cars shifting at 7500, don't really know about 8K though
My tune and X47R pulls happily to 7400. The stock ECU runs out of brains at 8K, although DHM was demoing a FiST spinning to > 8500 on a stock ECU before they blew up (DHM, not the engine).

Given all that you've got going on with this poor EB16 I wonder if it doesn't deserve a stand alone ECU to handle WMI, Nitros, aux fuel, and all the other torture devices that you're going to throw at it! ;)

IF xxiaze never has to worry about an OBD2 plug-in inspection (Like NEVER EVER moves out of the cheese state, and if he ever does, ONLY to another state without any inspections at all), yes a stand alone is an answer.

But HOW does one use a stand alone in a state WITH the plug-in inspection, to get around it?
A 'phony' factory ECU, something else? [dunno]

I’ll have to look into pricing that! I’ve been debating striping the car for a total rust gutting so maybe reworking the dash with digital heads up and a stand alone would be amazing going back together with it?? I’ll look more into it, good suggestion!

I am registered in a location that does not succumb to emissions. I file no tests and have zero scanning done. Emissions are no issue 👍

Ouch $$ see a stand alone for about 4K, that’s an awful price to grab some more RPM range lmao 😂 I decided against running WMI as well - so I feel like the motor will just get built top and bottom. 50-75 shot of nitrous and g25-550. My realistic dream now, after talking to everyone, is to achieve 500-550whp (w,nitrous). Wide body and full aero. Dominate a hellcat and I’ll be satisfied. That should be do able right? Up to like 160mph anyways... then it would probably take off on me. Not sure why I’m caught up on walking a hellcat so badly but that’s the whole M.O. 🤓

I mean, I'm pretty happy running bolt-on Coyote Mustangs, Charge Scat Packs and modded 370Z. That was with about 310whp, not the car is pushing 360whp so I'm hopping to move up a bit in category, but I'm realistic I know I'm going to get dragged by just about all the high horsepower cars (Hellcats, ZL1, etc)

I’m curious to see what happens! And that sounds great man! You’re putting it down, how’s that feel to walk off on those? Any of them super thrown off by it? Lol. Not sure my hellcat goal is totally realistic but damned if I’m not going to reach for it. It fuels the hunger 💪 The odds of running into them are slim to none around my parts anyways.

Any time a Fiesta runs next or in front of any car they are very surprised.

As a friend once said "there is no way to loose in a Fiesta ST. If they win they beat a Fiesta, if you win they lost to a Fiesta. So for you it's a win win". :ROFLMAO:
