Cost effecient (cheap) flex fuel kit to get up and running on E85 for 2017 BRZs?

Not sure if this is the correct place, but I'm wondering what kits work for a stock 2017, and won't cost an arm and a leg. I looked on delicious tuning a couple weeks back, and remember seeing it cost something like $1600, which certainly seems like a lot for this.

Thanks!

this prob isn't the right place, but its not a bad one either... the absolute cheapest route is don't get one.. which is an option, just an inconvenient one. Some of the tuning solutions will allow you to flash an e85 tune straight up.. which means fill with e85 from empty and go.. now your car runs on e85 only. (until you change fuels and reflash to whatever)

Their is slight difference in flex kit fitting on 2017 to earlier cars

also the ecu fueling timing logic is different for the manual 2017

that price would have included a ecu tune and ecutek licience

flex kit hardware sensor fuel lines connectors electronic etc to feed signal to ecu reliative to ethanol content is arround 600 plus fitting

then you need atune in ecu to interpret this signal this will cost from 300-500 plus ecutek licience say 300

Try talking to moto east tuning and see what thier price is they make a flex kit as well

the oft flex kit hardware will work but if its a 2017 manual with new ecu firmware the current oft flex tunes wont work, you will need to contact them re flex tune support for 2017 manuals
