seems messy and also, what will you do with the water and e85 mix once the test is complete?

dump it in the tank? pour it down the drain? 'yikes', and 'i hope not' goes to both of those options. flexfuel sensor, low pressure fuel pump (and hopefully a HPFP will come out soon) for me here as a next step after FBO.
His process is a huge pain but he's fine with it. He'll go when the station is empty, pump 91 and leaving some room for E85, push his car to the E85 pump, test, calculate, then fill. No idea what he does with the water/E85 mix though.

On the topic of the HPFP, it looks like Nostrum may have started selling units, but it looks like they're OOS for now:

Thanks for the link to the hpfp. I heard there was one in the works and i think it's this one.

I went FBO at 30k and plan to do E85 at 50K when i swap out plugs the next time. Currently at 35K which gives me about 1.5yrs before the 50K mark, so hopefully the guinea pigs here will show over that time if the hpfp is a winner or loser

some people are proud of going out of their way to pursue something they love. no knocks on that. i still change the oil on both of my cars even if it takes up my time and i enjoy doing it.

but imo if you are running high e contents and also driving like a dick, you'll be refuelling a lot more often compared to pump gas! personally, having to wait and the resulting calculations/math would kill me.

the stations by my house have ethanol-only pumps separate from the gas pumps, so having to drive up from the E pump to the gas pump would already be a hassle.

rumor has it that ibuildracecars has a hpfp in the works as well, would be prudent to wait for the results of both.

That is the one. White connector with a wire harness attached to it. I noticed that too when installing my ECBS this weekend

Delayed response. Helped with the Rev hang which was driving me nuts. Pretty solid power pickup from stock.

Assuming this had a protune of some sort, or OTS tune?
