Default Protomotive E85 tune, WOW!!!!

I just got my car back from the guys at P3 who converted my car to an E85 proto tune and all I can say is wow, the car has never pulled so hard. Daily drivability seems unchanged, but when you put the hammer down it goes. For comparison I'd been running a giac tune with race gas prior, and it doesn't even compare. I'll have the car at the track next week and will report numbers when I get them, but I'm confident the car is quite a bit faster now. Btw, I also had the proto tip software upgraded but haven't had enough time behind the wheel to test completely yet. E85 = highly recommended!

I'm pretty sure they did although I didn't ask them that specifically.

Congrats. Told you it would be worth dropping the canned tune

Sounds great! Is the only thing needed for the e85 conversion new injectors and tune? Can you still use regular gas or is it strict e85?

I had a 5 bar fpr added as well. I think you can only run E85 as the timing is advanced to the point if you run regular you might risk detonation. E85 runs really cool.

Great to hear!

I look forward to your progress with your conversion to E85 and new tune.

You had solid times with GIAC and I would like to see your signature change with Pride!

Keep that clutch foot steady and consistent!

Thanks guys, I'll have it at the track Sunday and will report times. I'm still smiling every time I step on it. This past week I actually did an awd burnout, that's how much power it has now. Lol

Does this conversion include adding a fuel sensor so the ECU knows what percentage of ethanol is in the tank?

Is this re-turning the stock ECU or going with an aftermarket brain?

i talked to todd there today, and he recommended injectors for the e85 tune, but he did say for the time being i could run a e85 file for stock injectors, its much more tame but should still be a high 500hp tune, which is more than i need ! he seemed to know his stuff !

Lower the motor as far as it will go remove the fuel filter and sai and get ready to bleed a bunch
