So I am a little curious, I am under the impression a MAP car uses more or less a table that is generated for conditions I.e. temp, altitude to yield the same out put or hp/trq. So map cars do not respond to normal bolts one or they more or less adjust themselves back to the standard state. Is this right? So the right way to tune an e85 car would be to generate a new table with e85 at more or less the extremes? It does not seem like a linear correction factor would work correctly. Is this on par with correct or way off base.
2013 ST2 for DD
2004 Terminator for fun
