Interesting, seems odd that they say it doesn't require running though.

Well I've been shooting some questions at this Advanced Fuel Dynamics. It sounds like their system works basically how the one I had for my Subaru did. It senses the fuel blend, and adjusts how much fuel the injectors put out accordingly. The Subaru system I had intercepted the MAF signal and adjusted how much air the ECU was seeing based on ethanol content.

This one goes the other way and intercept the signals to the individual injectors and bumps their output depending on ethanol content. It also comes with a nifty phone app that tells your current ethanol content via Bluetooth.

I'm definitely interested, but that price is pretty steep. I'm also concerned my injectors are probably at or near their limits as is. According to the build list the previous owner gave me, I've got z06 injectors which I've read are good to around 430hp. My car has aftermarket heads, cam, intake, headers, and rockers. According to him it dynoed at 460hp, but since the injectors theoretically wouldn't support that, I'm doubting that's true.

New injectors and a new tune for the injectors would probably put this mod into "not worth it" territory for me, but I definitely like it in theory.

Interesting setup they have for sure. Been doing some reading on it myself. Seems to work from all the reading and videos I have been watching they have on their site. A good way to run E85 on our cars. Cost of this system is pricey, the only reason I don't go out there and try it. My car does have the supporting mods to plug it in ( 60# injectors, aftermarket fuel system ) and I can mess with it with HP Tuners, but not going to jump in and test it with that price point. I do like the possibilities though. Would really like to have a full E85 tune I could load into it and have some fun with it.
