I love the kit, the flex module works 100% of the time, and I can still access it via bluetooth even if the display module freezes up. Its just a minor annoyance.
We have a new revised model for our flex fuel kit that I run on both my FT86's. We have since moved our module underneath the dash. I've been testing out the new kit for the last 6~ months or so in extreme heat and exteme cold temps and am happy to report that I have had not a single OLED issue even at 100+ degree temps

That was going to be the next route I tried with mine, installing the module under the dash, but was sceptical because multiple times last year on 80+ degree days, it would lock up when I got off work after the car sitting in the sun for 8+ hours. I figure it would get arguably hotter in the cabin than under the hood. But if you guys have a new revised flex module, its probably not worth the effort to try and move mine at this point.

Do you guys have a trade in program? Haha

I ended up going with ECUTEK and the kit through Delicious Tuning for my 2017.
Its not the cheapest route, but you get the dongle, license, a base tune and a followup tweak along with the hardware for FlexFuel. I liked the FlexFuel option so there's no wondering how close you are to "85". You also get an app that can connect via bluetooth and show you the exact percent in real-time as measured by the sensor. Its some money up front, but I will get additional benefit from the investment when the time comes to go SC.

With that pricing you're right there at the cost of an OFT+flex fuel kit, but get all the advanced features and custom tuning you get with EcuTek.

Otherwise there's been no issues running e85 from our end since we've been doing it in 2013, I wouldn't fear it!

Are you guys going to do any sales for Labor Day or Black Friday?
