    Default 400+ WHP E92 M3 on Ethanol [Flex Fuel]

    As the title says, my car has been able to hit the 400+ Wheel HP mark thanks to Gintani, American Racing headers & Advanced Fuel Dynamics.

    Previously, the car had the E-Flash software by ESS Tuning and has been running great for 4 years (almost 50,000 Km's); but after installing the headers and the flex fuel kit, I was convinced a re-tune will yield some more power out of the car.

    Kinetechnik Motorsport, the Gintani UAE dealer took care of everything in no time. I went for a baseline dyno run on Thursday night and the car pulled 343.5 HP (did 4 runs and all were around the same number).

    Logging the AFR we noticed that the car goes lean mid range (not sure the cause of that) but Alex (Gintani) confirmed that he should have this fixed with his tune.

    Saturday morning we were on the dyno and Alex was online in parellel working his magic. Six hours later we had the first dyno run of the day with the Gintani Custom tune (374.4 HP to the wheels on 93 Octane).

    Few runs later we confirmed the same number above; so we decided to add Ethanol E65 blend (roughly) in the car and see the AFD Flex Fuel Kit put to work and 406.4 HP happened!

    The software provided by Gintani is a 93 octane tune that works hand in hand with the flex fuel kit from Advanced Fuel Dynamics (so you can run straight pump gas or any Ethanol blend (up to 85% E85 I think as per AFD's confirmation).

    As usual impressive numbers and experience from Gintani.

    Is there anything left to do on the car to improve without the FI? you pretty much done it all..

    There is room left for a bit more power with running straight E85 and advancing timing a bit. There is also an option of adding cams, but I am happy with the power gains for now. Time to get better lap times

    With more power (forced induction) you will be reaching the injectors maximum duty cycle and maxing out the fuel pump capacity so you will need an upgrade, even with the upgraded injectors provided by many Super Charged applications.

    For naturally aspirated cars, not at all, at least after 5 months of use. Things to consider when running ethanol is not to keep it in your fuel tank for a long time if you don't daily drive your car & storing ethanol in barrels properly (since we do not have E85 in petrol stations).

    Definitely worth the upgrade especially that the power commander works on pump gas and any blend of ethanol you fuel up with!

    Thanks for the review Jimmy, but what happens if you don't daily drive your car and if you have Ethanol in your fuel tank?
