Trifecta E85 tune

Anyone running this tune yet in a kappa? I'd like to see the dyno results of a 07 roadster . I have it but still have 1/4 tank of fuel to use and I'm gettin anxious! Vince has promised a 40 h.p and 40 tq increase over his hottest 93 oct. tune. Also stated the car all around runs smother. Seems the cobalt guys are having some cold start issues but nothing negative from the kappas.

Wait, I think that 380whp is incorrect. I forget how much it was, but the torque was insane

peace out.

Thats intense!

Does the sky need any fuel delivery modifications to accept E85 as its fuel source" or just the tune?

This is with a stock car or with other mods like a HFDP, exhaust, IC?

If that is 100% stock I know what I am getting whenever the Dyno Day arrives (Postponed till whenever it gets unposponed again, makes my GMPP tune choice less of a waste for a while at least )

I need to find a friendlier dyno. I can just smile when I see 280whp on a stock turbo SKY.
I made less than that, but with 320ft-lb, running 26PSI.

I'll be swapping to E85 soon, just have a long road trip with no E85 to get through.

Vince swears by it for the roadsters. Seems the cobalt kids have issues with cold starts as they have to drive their cars year round to school.LoL But some people also pop a code from maxing out the HPFP. Seams to happen at wot 65 g-ish ...but not a negative issue on one kappa yet. With this BS 3 weeks of rain straight in Detroit I'll never get to burn off this last 1/4 tank of petrol! Hope to give you guys some ass dyno results as well as a trip to zzp for the real thing. If your already a rediflash owner its peanuts for the e85 tune. Although were pushing our fuel system to the limit which I hope never leads to premature failure of a fp. Pretty costly. But hey, no need for meth if it all pans out right!

I know dyno charts talks and bulls*it walks but the ass dyno is undeniable! Those of you with the stock k04 NEED this tune. No CEL's yet and not expecting any. Old tune came on hard and fell off. This one pulls hard and steady. The "smoothness" of the idle and powerband in amazing. GT-E85 as you know was a BS idea created by the US to start on the "alternative" fuel front. It never took off as the $ doesn't support the difference in fuel mass needed. But those of us that could use cheap race gas with the cooling effects of alcohol are finally benefiting from this fiasco. Come over through the tunnel in Windsor and get some!
