Because I don't have to do the above and I still get the safe power levels based on ethanol content I think the flexfuel kit is better.
No, the JB4 monitors timing advance and fuel trims and auto tunes itself when on E85. So you don't need to monitor anything. To run more than 50% E85 you normally also need the BMS flash which allows higher than OEM advance points and resolves the fuel trims issues.
