I wouldn't use HBP on a c38 with a stock engine even with ethanol and big cooling mods but experts will keep me honest if that's ok.
The Flash & Go can compensate for boost levels anywhere from 0 to 32psi. That being said, running a high boost pulley on a C38 charger is a combination intended purely for use on built motor applications, as you point out. Hope this helps!

Last week my turbo kit arrived. Second hand Sydney Motorsport Engineering Borg Warner EFR 6758 kit.

I worked 3am to 11am all week and after each shift, I worked on installing the kit (myself, with poor instructions). Took me three afternoons. I finished Friday afternoon/night. Flashed the car, did some quick logs for Zach and went to bed to start at 3am Saturday morning. Time difference meant 3am my time was the start of the day at Delicious Tuning

From the ABSOLUTE GET GO, the car did exactly that. It went. And it went hard. I could not believe that with a single flash tune, it could go that good.

Did some logs and reviews Saturday morning with no changes needed what so ever (on my old sprintex kit there were a few adjustments needed so I am quite surprised none are needed)

I then proceeded to drive 3 hours up the road with no worries at all. On the way back, I got curious to see how much boost we were making so I connected the OBDII up and we were making like, 8 PSI. I couldn't believe how AMAZING the car runs on just 8 PSI. That's amazing stuff!!

All in all, very very much loving the Flash & Go tune and how it just simply works immediately!!! Very very satisfying

Okay review part two!!!

Have been going back and forth with Zach over the last week 1 PSI at a time to make sure everything looks sweet. So far we have reached 14 PSI on 98 RON before the clutch slipped and the stock tyres wouldn't hold in 3rd.

- Oops hold on, back story. I got my Sprintex 210+/SPS tuned by Delicious (yes I changed from Sprintex only because I get bored easy). After about 13 or 14 revisions from the original tune, we had it down pat. Only had to do revisions due to the SPS system being more efficient and also 98 fuel and flex fuel. OKAY BACK TO MY STORY

I'm currently on the 3rd revision ONLY due to take off. I attribute this to the fact that this is an Aussie kit not sold except for here. Not ONE revision has been done due to increase PSI etc. Tune feels aaamazing, solid all the way through. Logs look gud too. And Zach even said it can keep going (but we set overboost to 15 PSI and my boost controller is set to the same).

All in all, super surprised at how well the tune/car performs and can't wait until we put some E85 in and the new clutch

Ok I'm new to this tuning aspect so if I sound retarded plus forgive.

I have an ECUtek tune already on my frs. If I buy a turbo kit (I'm deciding b/w AVO and Ptuning, both supported by Delicious) would I need a new ECUtek license, dongle, and flashNgo setup? And how much would that run in total as a package?

Since you said you have an ECUtek tune you should already have a dongle, cable and license, you should only need a FnG tune from delicious for your corresponding turbo setup

Ok. Thanks. I had the tune done by a shop. Do I have to ask them for the dongle cable and license or am I misunderstanding?

Is the dongle installed in my frs near the ECU or OBD port with the cable?

How do I get access to the license is there a registration number or
Something?

Having an EcuTek tune does not necessarily mean that you own the cable and dongle, you only have a license for your ECU.

The cable and dongle retail for $350.

Correct, and most tuners dont give the cables unless you request it for a price. $350

As above, if you've been tuned then you do have an EcuTek License already. If you'd like a cable kit, it is $350. However, if you'd just like us to tune the car in person without buying a cable kit, we can do that too.

so the pricing will be ~$350 w/tax for the tune and cable kit? or is the cable kit a charge separate from the tune?

It's better to ask questions and learn now rather than be SOL down the line in the middle of a build.

As @sales@delicioustuning.com pointed out, most tuners will only charge you for the tune as they can use their own EcuTek cable and dongle to flash your ECU. In my case with Delicious, I specifically asked to purchase the cable and dongle and I ended up using it the same day to get a revised tune which I was able to flash at home.

How long does it usually take to finalize a flash and go tune for forced induction flex fuel say if you receive 1 revised map a day and send back required data logs back that same day? (Considering all things run correctly, O2 sensor is good, injectors are fine, no leaks in exhaust, etc)
