    In Case You Doubt The Power of E85 :)

    Just thought I'd post this in case anybody is on the fence on this stuff. This is from Virtual Dyno, so take it for what it is, focusing on the delta more than the raw numbers. 401 map vs E85. No other mods. I stopped getting more aggressive when I discovered the 3-4 shift knock issue that killed 4th gear runs.

    There is most certainly more power to be had as I saw absolutely no timing being pulled in multiple runs. The runs are from a month ago, so IATs in the 100-150 range (Chicago gets hot, lol). I was approaching the level where I need a DCI, anyhow. All I did to account for E85 was increase timing and lean it out the slightest bit along with raising load target. I think I need to lean it out a bit further, but this is on pause for now, anyhow.

    At the end of the day, I know I could have gotten more aggressive on the pump gas map to shrink the delta, but this is massively impressive considering the fact that I am nowhere near done making the 50/50 map more powerful.

    Glad to be here! Different vibe. Sorry for the delay, I was traveling for work. These runs were with high IATs.

    When shifting (this affects manuals and autos) at high speeds, huge timing corrections happen in the higher gear. Ultra low timing gets run, which seems to kill power production. Everyone is still trying to figure it out, but it looks like timing jumps from whatever one was running before the shift to "neutral" to next gear at WOT are at fault. There is a thread entitled Log Request : 6AT (or something to that effect) on the next page that you can check out.
