Procede VS Cobb and E85 Switch and Meth

Thinking about going from COBB to the Vishnu with the new e85 kit they have.

Dont get me wrong the COBB is nice but its just not pushing me back in the seat like I thought it would be. Sat in JB4 car the other day, felt a hell of a difference.

I was thinking about going the meth route, what do yall think. Meth or E85?

I was gonna get the e85 kit he has with the sensors and what not. How safe is it for the car's and what not

also anyone running the procede here locally?

Let's not start a epic world war, lets be civil

I've tried both and love e85 better. More consistent, cheaper, and nothing to install.

I'm running a procede and have got e85 in the car right now. I'm running the e85 beta maps which aren't the latest ones that Shiv and a couple of testers are running (BrianM being one of them) that are producing big power. However, e85 is a nice jump over 93.

I'd run e85 over meth for the reasons that The Ghost provided above.

I need to hook up with you soon anyway. If you want, you can drive my car.

I really want to go that route, i feel like its safer than meth anyway.

I can get e85 about 9 miles down the road from my house

I'll probably do the flash to clear up some fueling headroom. But I don't need it now. My fuel trims look good. But who knows what things will look like once the new e85 maps are released (with supposedly more power( ? )).

I don't think I'm going to do the sensor, at least right now. I appreciate the merits of it, but I have other financial priorities I want to knock out. Plus, I don't foresee myself running e85 all the time. And when I do, I'll run more than 50% e85 and run the amount of boost and timing for 50% e85. I know I'll be leaving some power on the table, but I'm not trying for any records.

Someone's going to end up blowing their motor by running an aggressive e85 map while forgetting that they only have 91/93 in the tank. Don't let it be one of us.

Just saw they have some new cobb maps for E85. I need to go FBO before I can use them but you should check them out if you haven't made the switch.
