ECUtek Flex Fuel REVOLUTION: World's First Flex Fuel Factory ECU GTR - BRZ soon!

FT86 Community, I know my presents has been lacking this board recently but I've been very busy ! Last week was a very special week, as ECUTek unveils the world's first Flex Fuel Factory ECU GTR. Myself along with a few others - Bill @ Spray it Racing, and LitchField Performance have contributed to this project. While we are still several weeks away from this being available in the retail market, due to the required components still being arranged for mass sell....I wanted to provide some insight into one of the capabilities ECUtek has in store for 2013.

Here's a sneak

I've spent the last several weeks getting this new Flex Fuel Kit and Custom ECU maps working on the GTR. With the addition of new compensation maps that EcuTek has added I'll be able to do the same thing to the BRZ.

I'm in the process of building the kits right now.

I'll have a better idea next week.

Very nice. Expect same results as the 93 map when pure 93 and well as same results as E85 map once the tank is complete E85?

This is going to be great, E85 is awesome but i feel the mixtures sold to us almost require a real flex fuel capability that this offers to take full advantage. Can't wait to see results.

Yes, I have a bunch of different maps setup to compensate for fueling timing.. and for those turbo cars - boost !

This is a real flex fuel capability.

Take a look at my youtube video.

I have a ethanol content sensor wired into the GTR ecu..

The ECU will know your exact ethanol content and my tuning will be compensated based on that content - just like I would do with a flash except its on-the-fly

I understand it changes based on the amount of ethanol but I mean when pure one way or another. Just wasnt sure if it was more conservative and the extreme ends but I'm gathering that it is the same.

Also, what pure 93 octane? When I visit Tail of the Dragon, there is a place where I get stuck filling often it E0/93. Will this be safe with that?

This is awesome, and will be the option I need to pull the trigger on a full setup.

Do we need to purchase a separate tune for flex fuel if we already have your e85 tune or do we just purchase the flex fuel kit from you.
