f**k buying the drumed stuff... its pretty expensive.

I know its been covered, But just checking

 

currently have a HKS2510 with nismo 740's ...215kw

I assume these injectors will cut it with E85,

 

Will they be sufficant for say something like a 2530 or T518z on e85

(say looking for 230-240kw)

 

 

 

 

im out of fuel with 850's and HKS GTRS at 255 locky..

my s15 is a daily, been running e85 witgh dual maps for almost 3 years now

90% of the time i have been running E85, i let my tank go close to empty (just after the light comes on) if i want to change fuels.

 

i dont see what the big deal is? if you want to change fuels on the fly then u need to do a setup with 2 tanks like what Kemp has done.

 

dunno why u need that though, nice but not needed.

 

What ECU do you use for dual maps? Do you retune for summer/winter?

 

Cheers.

Might be worth gettin a tank full and tune in the winter, not really keen on gettin a seasonal tune and prob won't notice much difference in power delivery between e85 and the lower% mix's, that way anything else is a bonus and money in the bank when it comes to engine protection

 

Either way if these ethanol testers are acurate they sound like good insurance

Almost any high end ecu on the market will support dual map

 

Power fc and nistune won't support it

I read on the haltech forum that they are currently looking at add flex sensor support to the platinum sport series. link here - http://forums.haltech.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=9144

 

e: E85 profiling feature sport2000

Haltech is currently looking into supported this feature on the Sport series ECU. The Pro series already supports it.

If you would like to discuss ways to perform this task in the ECU's current trim feel free to give me a call,

Kind Regards

bad is really only the fact that it uses 30% more so u need more often than not bigger injectors, braided lines, bigger pump or two new rail...depending on other mods ofcourse. A lot more power to be had on e85 though, also more knock resistant so safer for your engine, less emissions so better for the environment...slightly high startup costs but you will pay roughly the same at the pump because whilst u consume more, it costs like a dollar a litre...smells funky as well lol

 

Uses more like 50% more, very hard to start if it's a really cold morning, expensive ($3/L in WA).

 

Other than that it's really good. More power, cooler temps, less det risk, higher quality fuel. I ran it on my old S13 with 350hp.

Lol $3 a liter you guys got it rough...it's like 1.15 here last I checked...

 

Anyways just spoke to haltech flex fuel sensor support for platinum sport coming in next software update in the coming months...released for pro today so looking forward to that.

I got T518Z with 740s and E85 locky, all good. 740s should support 260-270 on E85 although obviously there are a lot of variables involved

There will be an update for the Platinum Sport series in December some time for the use of the flex sensor.

Also I ran 1200cc squirters for 350hp (plenty of duty cycle left). As others have stated above, it is corrosive and all previous advice RE: fuel system is good advice.

Lol I have 2000cc injectors but the only thing holding me back from e85 ATM is fuel pump...single pump won't flow enough for the power I'm aiming for

yeah i read that as theyre primarily a race car pump theyre either on or off so no in between without running a fuel pump modulator? and then due to running like that...in a daily with start stop traffic it tends to heat up and shiz...a few people mount them under the car so it cools as they drive...i unno seems more trouble than its worth

Hey mate you seem to know a lot about e85, so I need ur advice.

 

I got a r34gt-t running a power fc tuned to run united E85, would be able to run 95-98pulp in n emergency, or would that cause damage?

 

Thanks

Car probably won't run at all as it would be rich as fk.. you'll probably foul the plugs as soon as you going around the corner.

 

In am emergency, best way is to reset the entire ECU and run the base map & drop the boost down.

Got picked for a random breath test while driving home

 

Police officer = have you had any thing to drink tonight ?

Me = no

Police officer = count to 5, I'm getting a high reading of alcohol on the breathalyzer are u sure you haven't had a drink ?

Me = it's the fumes coming from the exhaust, have u got a breathalyzer with a straw ?

Police officer = deep breath into the straw till I say stop, has this happen to you before ?

Me = yes

Police officer = your good to go, have a good night and drive safe

What's the alternative to a breathalyzer with a straw? I've never seen anything else.
