Looks promising! OV's progress can make me reconsider keeping the car.

I don't think they've forgotten about us just yet :P
I'm still actively running OV Tune stuff, and will soon be getting more fine tuning done with their new logging software.
Anyways my quick 2 cents input; gonna try to keep this thread clean for their 200T development

Yes, we have made good progress on our tune update already. We are fine tuning the transmission.
I'll probably be the first to say the stock turbo is just too small if you guys want real, real power.

So we've already got a Cast piece being made to flange the stock one to T25, for our bigger turbo

With no throttle limits we are seeing 10-11psi 1rst and 2nd gear, peak 15-16psi 3rd gear, and 17-18psi higher gears.(mid range, it will not hold to rev limit)

The stock turbo cannot sustain 20+psi through mid range with no throttle limitation. It's simply too small. I have one here I have taken apart it's *barely* larger than the stock turbo on a 3.5L Ecoboost, which uses 2 turbos.

So anyways we will have a tune + bolt on replacement bigger turbo setup.
Our goal is 400whp with a EFR 6758.

Next year will be big for this platform. Our goal is to make the highest horsepower 8AR in the world.

A bigger turbo is definitely needed.

Looking forward to updates!
