    I'm having a dual map switch installed which will allow me to either run my 91 octane or switch it over to E85. I say it's a no brainer a 50ish hp gain by a flip of a switch. Getting mine done this weekend will post my power gain after E85

    Flex fuel sensor conversion will allow you to run e safely. Any mix of gasoline & e85, and the tune will adjust on the fly. E85 is not consistent with the balance of corn & fossil...

    Yes I did the dual map tune. Been running E85 since I got it done haven't switched back to 91 yet the extra power is too much fun. But I'm sure mileage will be a lot better on 91. I'm getting 8-9 city and 15.5 freeway if I'm lucky with the E85. Lol

    Good to hear its working out for you. I would be interested in doing the same if you could get me the info of who you used it would be greatly appreciated! Currently stock but looking for id850's, 2.4 and 9.1, upgraded intercooler, airaid, kooks or ARH heads

    If you do both pulleys and E85 you will need to get an upgraded fuel pump for sure. I'm at 660rwhp with the 2.5 upper and E85 and my stock fuel pump is maxed out now any other mods for me and I will have to replace it. Church tuning did my Dual map tune.
