Your welcome. Now I need to work with the Range Rover pics.

If anyone is needing some detail work don't put it off for the last minute. I will be leaving in August.

Any suggestions? Is it due to E85 mix or should I remove the JB4 and take it in?

How long you leaving? I've been holding off as I've wanted to get a rear bumper, but I may be expediting it. Hahaha

Shon: Prolly because of your E85 mix. What's your ratio? Yep, looks like you went into limp mode.

I was just in Flagstaff at 7000 foot elevation. My car was NOT happy. I was running approx E30 at the time. My car went into limp mode and I couldn't get back into my JB4 either. Down buttons did nothing. So, I restarted it and ran 3 or 4 new WOT to relearn. Once I dropped to 3000 feet, it seemed to be running better. But, still...finding E85 in AZ was a b!tch.

I'd double check with Terry and see what he says.

I am only putting 3 gallons of E85 with 91 to fill it up which is close to E25. I cleared the codes but they do tend to come back every 2 weeks or so right after a hard pull.

Thank you. It was a difference in person.

I am going to stay there as long as I can. Hopefully can do an IPCOT (In place Consecutive Overseas Tour) That should give me 8 years over there.

Okay. Well, I have the 335is. So, my boost levels are different. I run 5 gallons E85 + 10.X gallons 91. But like I said, I had the same problem in AZ running in higher elevations.

Check with Terry. He may give you some custom numbers for MAP2. That's what he was trying to do for me. We've had A LOT of problems trying to get my tune just right being a 335is in Vegas running 91 octane. And now that summer is coming on, I expect nothing but from the JB4.
