(1) Almost certainly not going to happen. That would require external hardware for the Flexfuel sensor to integrate with the DME and then recoding the DME to reference additional sensor output when targeting timing.
(2) Cobb has stated they have no interest in rewriting the DME for boost targeting. IMHO load targeting is a better(if not easier) means of tuning anyway.
(3) Definitely a possibility. IIRC Cobb has actually been working on flipping the DME WG control logic. I have no idea how much progress they've made though.
Doesn't seem like the flex fuel sensor would be that hard, aside from having to add an input to the DME. I agree its probably not going to happen, just asking

I guess my only issue with the load targeting is that the car doesn't seem to make load targets aside from 3500-4500rpm... is that just because of the tiny stock turbos/turbines? Would a Cobb tuned car with large turbos make load targets all the way to redline? If so, then yes I agree with you.
