Wow....stop driving that car asap!

The safc does not help on our cars.

60's will not work properly with the GM reflash.

The GM flash is not set up to run E85 properly.

You cannot tune the locked GM flash.

Right now you have a recipe for disaster and a blown motor.

your sig is going to be WAY off.... you wont be beating a $100 car running e85, on the GM reflash with only 60# injectors.... you need 1000's, huge pump upgrade, filter upgrade, STANDALONE......


long story short, you are fukked.

I do not want to sell the ECM but i was thinking 42 lb injecters would be better. what are you all using to tune with.? i have been reading HP tuners will not work with a locked ECM. I will trade these 60 lb injectors for 42 ford green tops.

The 42's will not work with the reflash either...you need the 36's that the reflash is meant for.

i think its best if you want to save money in the long run you remove the charger and read, or atleast read untill you drive the car with the charger on it.

Otherwise you may be replacing your motor sooner then you think.

Even with e85 it too rich how am i going to damage an engine being too rich, fowl out the spark plugs ya. If it was too lean ya i could understand broken ring land been there done that. but i just need some one that can tune long distance since there is no one local.

Fine...argue....

Good luck on your lacking performance and blown motor goals for 2011.


Say it with me.

The GM flash will not/cannot compensate for E85, larger injectors....EVER!

If you cant tune then find someone...Hell Trifecta does long distance tuning and atleast he will give your engine a fighting chance

Actually if any tuner for this car would be able to make an e85 tune it would be vince. He's not the greatest tuner ever but due to his knowledge of how the computer actually works puts him further up my ladder for whom I consider good tuners for the platform. I still hate mail order tunes with a passion.

Yes, but I can guarantee that his wide-band is still set to display in normal gasoline afrs. Which would mean an afr of 11.8ish would actually be 7.0:1 ish.
