E85 here I come
 
Getting tuned this weekend for e85, so excited. I can now see and feel if there is really a big difference in hp/tq from just using e85

I know it won't be e85 now but there should still be a bump in power

What do you think whp will be? ~285 now with vf52, maybe 315 or so?

Only tuning for e85 because I'm doing the tgv delete

E85 is great stuff man I have a 450 plus who sti that's been running it for years!! You should see about 320whp and close to 400 torque

LosAngelesLGT 11-26-2012 10:59 AM

With a lot of mods I saw over 350/420+ on a vf39 @ 21psi with a lot of mods @ sea level on e85 and 850 injectors (reasonably high up in the duty cycle)

I had a v52 and 850's on e85 at Mile high and was around 315/350 on a airboy so take that for what its worth. But comparing airboy on gas to airboy on e85 I saw about 30/50 in gains, your going to love the extra tq for a DD, very fun enjoy and let us know the results

LosAngelesLGT 11-26-2012 12:13 PM

A mile lower I saw gains of ~40/60. You are going to love the extra tq for a DD. Straight up street thuggery.

With my AVO380 I put down 280whp on 91pump when I switched to e85 (e78 actual) put down 335whp. Stock, my car put down 185whp all numbers done on the same dyno and tuner. At the Holiday and Kwik Trip stations around town they are all at e69 now according to my ethanol gauge.

Had my car tuned by Shane at DB Performance in Rogers, he really knows his stuff.

^Heartbreaker of a dyno but you can't argue with 80% more power than stock!!!

You will love e85! Turned my car almost back to a stage 2 feel, but holy cow it packs A LOT more punch!

Also, e85 + 15 degrees F = So much fun!! (a little tough starting though, but it started :lol: )

Let us know what you think when done.

Tell me about it! I was originally hoping for over 300whp on 91. Didn't really understand "heartbreaker" until I went through it, but then I drove the car and all that went away ;) I have a dyno plot of the stock tune vs. the e85 and it looks crazy because the stock lines are so close to the bottom of the graph. I kind of giggle when I look at the plot and think about driving it.

Lesson for the day: if you run a heartbreaker of a dyno, make sure to include baseline runs. :lol:

This is the fun I was talking about with e85.

I'll see your "stock vs" and post a stage 3 ca91oct vs same on e85.
The grey lines are the 91oct tune. Blue/red for e85.

Got it tuned and dynoed today and all were around the 320-330+whp range and around 330+wtq in 4th gear. Not sure if 3rd gear would of been higher or not.
It just need's a little bit more tuning on Monday and it "should" be done.
It's Running lean after 5k-6k but he let me drive it and it's great.
1st gear made the back end come out and slip, it felt like a rear wheel drive car. Amazing, Can't wait to see the final numbers but it should be around the range of 320whp/330wtq
Never took my car to redline in 4th gear but now I know it goes to about 125-130mph

Who is tuning?

lee07 12-09-2012 08:27 AM

You may or may not know him but the shop is called devoted auto works in white bear lake on 61 and cedar.
Great guy.
He Doesn't release your car until he is happy with it, he's not happy with it, so another day tuning it monday, that's fine as i have another ride

wurkenman 12-09-2012 09:25 AM

Just asking, because it is VERY rare to tune in 4th. I have my tuning done by Nuke at NF performance. I know it's a blast to drive as I'm at 321 on 92 octane (dyno numbers from RS Motors in Burnsville). I have no desire to run E85 because it is not always available out on the road and the mileage sucks.
