This tune seems super complex. I'm having issues with stage 1 OTS on altitude w/ BM3, should I consider ECUTEK? Anyone make the jump from Bm3? pros/cons?

Do they have OTS maps?

If you come down to Colorado Springs, I can tune your car using ECUTek

I also use Bend Calibration for tuning. Process is very smooth IMO, even doing initial calibrations (pre e85) in Germany. With each additional update came more, smoother (useable) power. I am very happy with the service provided by Ian.

I have e85 hardware (from Bend) already installed, just waiting on my car to arrive in the US to start the remote tuning for that.

That's awesome! Ian is a true professional.

You're gonna love the flex fuel tune. My car feels insane lol.

What 4 maps configs should I go with considering I'm getting the flex fuel setup? Package comes with a 2 maps, soft and full torque. I hate to waste a map on valet but that's probably a good idea, however I likely will never hand my car to a valet, so ,ay that's a complete waste. lol What are some other good map configs to consider?

would be good to get a couple maps based off fuel, eg 91 map and 93 map, and depending if you're running meth, a meth map and a non meth map.

the flex fuel can be integrated into any of those maps. it doesnt need to be a map on its own, thats the beauty of flex fuel

I have Soft Torque, Full Torque and Road Course Map (More flat torque power delivery and temperature corrections to keep things healthy over the course)

The tuner can control which maps are flex. So yes, all 4 can be flex. No sense for a 91 or 93 only map.

I was under the impression that flex fuel took up all 4 map slots. Like 1 flex fuel tune was all all 4 maps combined with the ECU automatically swapping between. This is good to know!

Depends on the tuner and also depends on your goals. I chose Bend Calibration as they built me a fully custom flexfuel tune based on my preferences. It's honestly perfect never having to worry about specific ethanol contents.

As for stage 2 gains...this video was taken over a year ago and it only had downpipes and an AA midpipe.

Had stock plugs, stock air filters, stock intercooler, stock charge pipes at that time:
