Brian @ VT knows the correct pin. I have had the E85 on my '16 since I got it last December. He had done my '13 with the same setup previously.

@mikesul Well son of a $%# :) !

I need to look further into VT's stuff.

In the meantime, what's your feedback on running e85? How often do you run full e85 versus a lower mix? Is the power difference between 93 and e85 worth the cost of the sensor? Any issues?

Like I said before, contact ZZP. I know they have a 2017 Camaro running E85. VT is just so EXPENSIVE. And yes, the power difference is worth the cost of the sensor.

Contacted ZZP directly, no dice. They've had issues with the E80 ECM (2016). No ETA.

Dammit! May have to go with VT after all.
I'd just wait til someone else confirms the pinout, rather than paying VT $100 extra to tell me instead of buying the ZZP 'kit', or just buy the $75 sensor on your own and come out $250 ahead of what VT is charging.

With no disrespect intended, are we sure VT actually has it working on the '16s? @mikesul has it, but I'd like to know if he's logged the sensor to see if it's properly adjusting the tune based on ethanol percentage.

Also, from what I can tell, VT does not use HPTuners, has anyone with EFIlive and a 2016 ATS 2.0 tried the sensor?

I don't think they use the 'full suite' type of EFILive. It's kind of a butchered EFILive in a box that can make some limited changes to their 'canned' tune.

mikesul, anyway you could find someone local to datalog?

Hello - I'm new to this forum and was hoping to get some insight from its members regarding a plan to get to 400 HP / 400 TQ (crank HP, not wheel HP) with a 2013 2.0T AWD 6AT. I understand the stock specs are 272 HP and 260 TQ. Got a quote from a local tuner for $1,400 for an intake, downpipe, and custom tune (parts & labor included). Was advised that this would probably generate a 70-80 HP / TQ increase. For $1,400, that seemed pretty reasonable. Does that sound about right, though? Also, what else would be needed to bridge the gap to get to approximately 400HP / 400TQ at the crank, or fairly close to it, and any idea of the cost? Thanks in advance.
Re 400hp to the wheels, I have gone down the rabbit hole, new cams, rods, pistions, valve springs, arb head studs, down pipe full exhaust, e85 flex, CAI. Intercooler, borgwarner 7163 turbo and tune. Dyno showed 375 hp, 370 TQ. Stock fuel sender wasn’t keeping up. So next run I expect 400, each dyno and software is different, some are more optimistic, and depending on strap tendon and other variables +- exists
