For a rough idea, I was running 5.35FDR, with 50deg boost, 5000-17000rpm, 14deg turbo, .3 delay, 2ramp, and 8deg motor timing on a Duo 3. That would come off at about 75*C with a yeah racing fan after a 6min run. I'm now using a Seis fan, with the Reflex fan mount.

Any help would be great.
The Tekin setup won't help very much. Start out with a setup like this, but you'll probably add more gear since you were running a 5.35 before.

For what application? The GT 2.0 Pro is their best speed control though.

REVENTON "S" can be software update to the new STOCK "0" software that will run blinky mode.....
And which Reventon will run 1s without a booster? The pro correct?

Thanks
You have PM...please check, thanks.

the problem is , stock software has more options for timing and if your not experianced then running timing and mod is a bad option , if your experianced then go ahead , the Marc set up from ETS is on the Speed Passion site

428 is a definite improvement for already great software. It will allow you to go more aggressive on your setup in the summer months without the added heat. It can only help your speedo setup limits.

tried the 428 at the last ETS in holland. temperture was lower than with 323. however i had almost no breaks with a thunderpower 4.5T motor. i changed back to 323 and brakes were good again. could well be a fluke as viktor was running the same settings and motors but just saying.
