    ET 18LB boost wheel?

    Thinking of upgrading to a ET 18lb race wheel!I currently have the E1 wheel with riva motor intervals and the Athena with the stage 3+ mapping. I am curious to see how others think about the ET WHEEL compared to the Riva wheel.

    Ok . Sounds like it is a more aggressive wheel than the Riva.
    It sounds like with the ET wheel it produces boost faster than the Riva.
    that is something I liked about the RD wheels as well.

    No comparison at all. The 18 wheel makes a ton more power, and together with the athena tune you will probably be at 90mph depending where you set your rpms to. Gus13letter is making like 19 lbs of boost at 8600rpm and has made as much as 23lbs at higher rpm.

    True but we are all still under 90mph.
    I have the setup with the Athena and he has it with an R&D reflash.

    Gus did [email protected] few more rpm and good conditions and he would be on the other side of 90 for sure. I have two guys I personally know down here with 15.5 wheels and athena ecu and are at 88 mph in the summer weather. I just about hit 88mph myself in 81* weather this week. I'm positive with the 18 wheel at right rpm, cooler temp, and good weather... 90mph+ could be reached.

    What fuel do you have to use with the ET wheel and the athena ECU?
