With the newer firmwares we have new features...

look for flashing check engine lights right before it happens, 1 flash is overboost and several is knock.

This is exactly what is happening-
as its defaulting to map 4 and leaving you to OEM map/boost levels.

Put in less e85 and it will most likely help the issue.
