You will also be able to use your cruise control stalk to change maps on the fly. If you want a valet mode for example or an aggressive map for Ignite Red fuel. Whatever, EcuTek will be able to accomodate
The question is when will it be available

Very interesting! I'm very keen on the flex fuel and on the fly map switching functionality, this could really be a game changer.

Keep in mind this isn't BM3 so the experience is completely different and imo this is more professional tuning software. You'll need the ECUTEK dongle kit and this can be purchased from a registered ECUTEK tuner. I chose Bend Calibration who has tuned my cars for the past decade and also has been running/testing the Racerom software extensively. He has over 15years experience from many different race/street/drift cars and he's my recommendation. ian@bendcalibration.com if you want to contact him for details. He'll be able to answer everything in finer detail.

I don't see a mention of DCT tuning. Would this need (recommended?) to be paired with a DCT tune from BM3 or elsewhere?

I don't believe they offer this yet but likely part of Phase2 or Phase3.

You must contact an Ecutek tuner as each will have their own prices.

As Commanderwiggin mentioned it is best to reach out to your ecutek tuner for pricing. If you are after an indicative price Litchfield have it listed on their site.

Iíll contact my tuner about upgrading to RaceRom. I didnít see a big difference in price between ecutek with custom tune and bm3 with custom tune.

Iím happy with my 91 octane tune. Time to go flex fuel.

This is exactly what I've been looking for! Time to get the ball rolling on tuning.

Any feedback on the tune with ECUTek from Visconti? I'm keen on getting impressions from users who were early adopters.

I have used ECUTek on both my GT-Rs before. If someone can quote the ECUTek and all the hardware needed for FlexFuel (excluding downpipes, I do not want to delete cats), that would be great.

When I had my 2015 wrx and I got the ecutek pro software with flex fuel capabilities/hardware, it was pretty costly. With custom dyno tuning it was a couple of grand. I wonder what it would be out the door with the s55. Having flex fuel was awesome. The ability to not be anxious about your e-content was liberating.

My flex sensor kit is being installed right now. I've been out of town at work so when I get back it should be good to go. Bend Calibration will have a bolt on flex kit available for those getting tuning from him.
