From what I understand, AFR target shouldn't change for E85 so long as you're adjusting Stoich to match the E85 content in the tune?

Running E85 should help you run even leaner... Higher octane of E85 = safer lean burn without knocking.

That is correct

And not all tuning platforms have scalars like bmw

You'd think so, with higher octane, more timing, and boost
I know there are gains, but is it worth it?

The closets e85 station is 35 min drive for me. I'd have to get containers with me to stock up and store in the garage. Then carry some in the trunk every time I fill up to mix it. Don't want to go through the hassle if gains are minimal.

Up to the eye of the beholder.
If you just want to slap a peak number side by side comparison of peak number, probably not, as the mid range is where most of the gains are and that is not where a peak hp is produced.

Did quite a few runs in Mexico today, just check my Data Zap profile, got like 8 runs in.

These were all after a brand new battery, which I am still sitting at 12.4~ with car off, but then again, I am checking on MHD and that draws power too. Best way to get a super accurate one is to use an actual tester. But my old battery was well on it's way out, it died twice on me in the last two months, and in the morning it reads 11.5 volts after like 4 days of not even starting the car. I got some seriously rough cold starts too (before ethanol).

I had a weird lean code right after a new battery was installed and coded, I just reset the DME, and reset adaptations for everything. Figured with new battery, weird shit happened

I am currently on E30~ roughly, idle LTFT had me at 15% before the adaptations, sitting at 10% now after adaptations and quite a few runs, which is normalish seeing how I am normally at 5% LTFT at idle anyways on pump gas.

Multiple pulls, very minimum corrections, some runs had zero to 1 maybe 2 cylinders at most with any corrections.

No codes, no nothing wonky on the MHD app or drivabilitywise after several runs.

This is the first time I have veered away from 1 gallon of methanol in my gas tank and ran actual ethanol. I also had my methanol running on one of the runs, it was quite cold out and no bogging or misses happened, but I still turned it off, because I think on that run I actually got some larger corrections.

My wife loves this current e20 map I have, I was on a pump map a bit ago, and she thought it was slow just daily driving. This E20 map she said it feels way faster even just cruising around. This is an older map that hasnt had any revisions for a bit that Wedge and I have been working on, I dont mind the taper as the mid range is all we ever do around town.

Will be copy and pasting this onto the other MHD threads, so dont mind my spam

I was wondering, do you only need a catless DP in order to run map 2? I dont have a CAI yet but im planning on installing one soon. I literally only have a catless DP.

So that you can run more boost.

CAI doesnt do much on these cars besides noise. Drop in filter does just about the same as a CAI, without risk of heat soak and or scaling

Dont care for the factory firmware
It will work whatever your current ROM.
So it was successfully unlocked?? What's the hold up in giving instructions so we can unlock ours and install MHD??

You already have the only recommended hardware for stg2 - DPs. I would advice to get an FMIC rather than a CAI.

The unlock is working, but the DME accepted the flash only once. Back to the drawing board.

Happened for each shop that tried it + you? Are efuses getting blown preventing more writes after the initial one?

Nothing of this sort. The DME puts itself into the state of waiting for a (valid) flash. The fact that it accepted a flash once means we're close though.

Trying to troubleshoot a boost issue. Looking for any and all advice. I'm on Stage 0 and my car's unable to hit stock boost targets. WGDC isn't maxed, getting no codes of any kind. Car just seems to fall flat on its face at 4000. New plugs gapped to .026, BMS intake, ETS chargepipe. Checked the charge pipe yesterday and it seems to be solidly hooked up and clamped down. Any other obvious suspects that I can check out?

Your gap is too wide
.022 is the recommended minimum

I am at currently at .019, but I dont like how it idles in the cold, might bump it to .20 and call it a day

Hi all, about to flash tonight since I've finally got an android device. Been following along and earlier asked what supporting mods were required for the E30 map and was advised at least a FMIC. I playing around with E30 and currently have a tank full of it. If I don't have supporting mods but am obviously running more than 91 octane, what other Stage 1 map would work? I did read codes this morning and it does appear I have one code likely a result from the ethanol. Sorry I didn't write it down, something about low pressure reduce speed. Unrelated, how does one take a screen shot of the code read off an android device?

.022 is the minimum for an upgraded turbo and maybe even FBO, but I'm on a stock turbo, downpipe, and intercooler. Think I'm good there.

Not sure how anything on the intake side would have an impact on boost. Intercooler, chargepipe (which I tightened up yesterday - seems good), vacuum hoses (but I'm only at 40k miles...) seem more likely. Still no codes despite putting 50 miles on Stage 0. Will keep driving and see if one pops up but the car is otherwise tip top. Thanks for the ideas, though...
