    It's a major bummer to be forced to go the E10 tune....like a real kick in the balls. And we have quality 93 octane here. The car is unrecognizable E10 tune versus E85 tune (pulley swap too). And there's nothing "peaky" about it.....its across the entire rev band right off idle! And this is with a baby 2.3 blower that's argued as "better with pump gas"....I'd imagine it will be even more dramatic with the 2.9

    I can attest to this. I'm on 93 right now and the car is lazy as F. And we have good clean 93 here and it makes over 600 to the tires on 93. On E the car is totally different but unfortunately it isnt available at pumps here. So I can only fill up at home from the 55 gal drum.

    I'm tuned on e85, I'm guessing I cant run 70 on an 85 tune?

    You can absolutely run that...but it might be borderline TOO rich to make repetitive WOT blasts. Better than lean......but too rich isn't good either long term. You might run it by Kevin see what he says.

    Which plugs are you running? TR6?

    He took my E85 tune and just adjusted the fuel for 75. Emailed it back. Took like 10min. No data logging as it’s just math.

    I have a 91, 75, and 85 on my handheld that’s under the seat.

    No numbers yet I’ll be getting tuned on June 21st. I’m also going to be doing a trunk intercooler setup to get rid of the small tank under the hood and the intercooler pump before the tune

    Sweet set up. What pump did you go with? I just got finished rerouting my 1" lines to the front, what a pain in the ass

    I ordered the tank from tigvision it came with a rule 2000 pump. I ran 3/4 lines but I plan to upgrade to a j2fab intercooler set up later and run the one inch lines. Yes it was a PIA.

    if/when you do the flow mod and set up to the 1" stuff id highly suggest a more powerful pump. on paper the rule pumps flow well but they dont have the pressure to take full advantage of the giant lines and distance. my stewart pump will drain my 7 gal tank faster than i can replace the water with the hose on full blast.
    looking forward to the 21st to see what it makes! good luck

    Yeah. I kinda knew that would be a weak point. But it’s good for now. Once I upgrade I’ll look into the Stewart pump. It flows pretty good compared to stock. But that’s with 3/4 lines. Yeah I’m excited. Been a long time coming. Just gotta install the j2fab alternator when I get it and change the plugs and hope for the best.
