Installed Ethanol reader from fuel it, also plugged in the SS controller.
The bluetooth ethanol sensor is working, the injectors are also firing.

The problem is there is no power to AC and its controls.
"CLIMATE CONTROL" fuses that I could find according to the diagram.
Checked the fuses in the engine bay, anything else I should check?
I didn't tap any of the above to any AC control.

pinging @SSgtjrobertson the wiring guru :)

He responds faster to monetary donations. As we all do...

Those are some really nice numbers! The curves look good with the exception of a few dips & the smoothing being on 3. That's VDyno, right?

Yup, that's expected for a base aux tune and still somewhat conservative ECU tune.

might need 1 or 2 more datalogs on 91 + aux since aux hasn't been turned up fully yet.

I am looking forward to see what it makes on E50. Hoping to make 400/400 to the wheels.

V1.10 so 10th revision and got the E40 tune on slot 2. Filled the car up with 3.5 gallons and got E35. I was aiming for E40 but ended up with E35 with guess work. The ethanol sensor makes it a breeze, otherwise I would be spending time at the pump trying to calculate ethanol percentage.
After adding another gallon of E85 I should get E40 mixture in the tank.

Since I have been upgrading fuel components, I thought I should keep an eye on STFT..

During IDLE it stays around +/-0-3% what should it be during WOT?

Anything + or - 10% is no cause for concern. STFT is a dynamic number and will always be bouncing around.

Remember that your ethanol content will affect trims some as well. Higher ethabol percentage (than what the tune is designed for) will start to read as lean (positive trim). Lower than target ethanol will read richer (negative trim).

Got it like I said before AnxietyPort but others might disagree and I understand why. Its good to keep an eye to make sure its all installed and running properly.

This is what I got after my Ethanol was @ 43 %, It was a lazy pull.

That's a lot of torque; personally I would have that dialed back a bit.

Thats a lot of fun too lol but yes you are right, the first few pulls I wasnt fully WOT hence why I called it lazy.

I need more HP and will ask him to dial it down once the tune is complete besides its the E40 and I wont be running E40 all the time.

ohh in that case

But truth, that's a lot o torque!
Yes, besides the internals everything else is built for a lot o torque!

and internals are what will now take the real beating lol lets see how long this lasts with my driving habits.

Besides the internals? Isn't that what really matters? Should we start a pool?

not if you have plans to build it 😬
