Auto or manual?

A vf52 will be maxing out around 220atw on E85.

As mentioned before you need to find out exactly what's been done to your engine (the fuller the list the better). Any component out of place can mean another blown motor. For example certain Manley rods are weaker than OEM rods.

On the subject of E85 - it raises the cylinder pressures, which is fantastic for torque, power and response, but if you're not running the right headstuds (especially if you're still running bolts) - you're greatly increasing the chances of a blown headgasket. With the right tune it is IMO the best power mod for our 2.5Ts, but there is very little room for error when you start making that kind of torque.

Hi on the vf52 you hit full boost at 2750? Similar to vf46 when tuned..

I thought vf52 comes on like at around 3400rpm?
