This is true I had to buy pretty big injectors for my evo but I saw a 27 hp increase and 30 tq went from 20 psi to 29. I guess we will see when his dyno results come out the truth shall set you free

Yeah, whether or not it's going to prove to be worth a darn on a NA Foci I am still working out. Not even really going to push the tune yet until the exhaust gets done anyway. MPG is settling in to just above 30 for now. Going to revise with a few more degrees timing at cruise to see if we get any more improvements in MPG, then be done until after the hardware changes. WOT we look OK on, might need to change some fuel settings but we're still letting the trims work themselves out before we make any changes.

I'm putting a e85 in my car tonight with a 93 tune, did you notice much of a difference? This seems pretty promising.

Would that even work with a 93 tune? I am guessing yes since e85 is supposed to have more octane? Tom would u even recommend this with your tune? I am assuming thats what he has.

E85 doesn't have more octane than E10 or E0 93 octane, that's a false statement thrown around a lot when they refer to the blending octane rating of pure ethanol, in truth it is generally the same octane rating give or take 2 as 93 octane E10, but with much less energy content per gallon.

If you have tuned the car specifically to take advantage of the additional charge cooling effect of the ethanol and increase the dynamic compression ratio it may be of benefit performance wise, but you'd have to retune the car from running regular (up to 10% ethanol) 87 or 93 octane fuel.

No I would NOT , running e85 you have to add more fuel in and if you dont have a flex fuel Focus this will not be done automatically

Me personally, I would be nervous running e85 on a tune designated for 93 octane. I'm interested to see the results though.

I am nervous as well. I was about to put e85 today just to try it since my car is flex fuel but decided to just go with 93 which cost me 15 bucks more for a full tank ughhh.
