You can. You need to download the E85 maps from their website and that should allow for you to run on a 50:50 blend of 98 and E85. Of course you'll need to ensure your E85 is definitely E85 otherwise you may need to adjust the blend ratio. It's not at easy as a JB4 set on map 5 but it is doable and should be just as effective.

How come you're not running ethanol Alex!?!

Wouldnt that 50:50 mix require upgrading the LPFP?

Unless you run a back end flash, low pressure pump upgrade and flex sensor don't go there.

I'm not running E85 partly cos I can't be bothered looking for E85 every time I fill up and partly because the only maps out there are for 50:50. Also, seeing as I already dyno'd 310kW, I'm not sure how much more beneficial running E85 will be.

It should be possible to run 50:50 E85 without a back end flash or an LPFP upgrade but you'd need to have a healthy stock system. Logs are definitely required to make sure everything is running ok.

With the Procede maps I believe the maps are set to 35% start boost and then you can gradually up it from there if the logs look ok.

I'm interested to know if naynay has the BMS back end flash and/or LPFP upgrade to run his 50:50 mix.

I know that on my gf's E88 I've run up to a 40% E85 mix without any backend flash or LPFP upgrade and that's done 118,000kms. It dyno'd at 264kW with only DCIs on map 5. Ran a 175kW stock. Hasn't had a valve clean yet. I haven't logged it running E85 although it appears to run fine.
