I'd also love Flex with a CAI, I've also been looking at the raptor option, not sure if there are better options out there. Mainly just want it for some extra noise ;)

Another H6 running flex. I have not driven the H6 yet on E85, old man reckons he can notice the difference as well as the headers but we'll see. Too busy messing with the other lib at the moment


Can confirm Raptor headers (plus exhaust) with E85 flex tune is noticeably different to using 98RON. Car goes harder and more low down torque on the butt dyno. Trade off is worse fuel economy but I think that's a given. I have swapped over to Kobe 340lph pump as well. When I swapped out the fuel pump I didn't realise I had a DW65C installed (I think that may have occurred when I took it to *ahem* MRT a couple of times (that's another story for another thread)...

Keen for a Raptor CAI to complete the picture...

Agree completely. I've just had my Headers and full stainless exhaust Installed along with pump and Filter to run full E85. Matt has re-tuned it accordingly and their is defintley a noticeable difference. I found it to be much more responsive and torquey. Next step is Dyno. hopefully 170 -180 atw :D Raptor CAI for E85 is a no so far apparently :( I just went with second resonator delete to get a bit of induction noise.

For pre FL the Raptor CAI won't work (according to Matt) however post FL are OK. Which is good because I have a post FL and a Raptor CAI sitting in my bedroom waiting for install and tune... :D

I've had a CAI since maybe April, have a pre-FaceLift. Mostly I was waiting to get the exhaust sorted first, but have been waiting for the last couple of months to fit up the CAI.

Last time I caught up with Matt he was hoping that his new canbus sensor would do the trick...

Matt, any updates?

So this will work on my pre-facelift (I think you mentioned it is the larger memory ECU)?

Will this be an E85 only tune, or the full flex fuel tune?

Good to see you are back :)

Please put aside a sensor for me. :) :)

Let us know how the CAN flex fuel sensor testing goes! I'd be interested in that.

Otherwise just ordered a DW65c for the flex fuel tune. So stoked!

I'll definitely be in on a flex fuel option. I have E85 injectors coming with my s/c kit, but I'm hesitant to go full E85 due to the lack of it around my area. Flex will be brilliant for me.

@Kido

Saw that you have been back on the forum lately..
Any news on E85 Flex + CAI development?
If no progress, what about an E85 only tune + CAI?
