That new feeling of thrust you're experiencing is from the additional timing that e85 allows for, not some cutting edge technology. The smart thing to do would have been to add timing to an OTS map via ATR, or for a really good deal emailed PTF and had them make you a custom map for your setup.

Vishnu flex fuel sensor is great because the ethanol content of e85 varies so much and by measuring it you don't need to leave any hp on the table.

Awesome, choosing the right shop the install aftermarket products is key. Glad you found a good one and you're enjoying your setup!

Speaking of which, did you ever get your Downpipe Situation sorted?

P.S. it's too bad you don't have E85 in HK...It's amazing

Yup, I did indeed Joe! Just took to back to the shop I usually go to and they sorted everything out. Big mistake on my part trying to cheap out on the install. Ended up costing me double but the heartache was what made it really terrible.

You'll have to give me a ride in your car when I'm around next! Maybe I'll get some E85 smuggled back in drums

Hey OP, drop me a line when you get time to tune. I'm running basically the same setup and putting down 450 whp and 500 wtq. 80% Ethanol and 100% Methanol. Once the weather warms up you'll have a good time.

Did you sell the COBB? If not, keep it. You can use it to fine tune the DME. Didn't notice, but did you get the Procede Flash also?

Yes - the DME was reflashed...
