Ok I just installed this but I want to triple check... When I connect the cable I pick map 3 then connect. Change the boost from "0.0" to "4.0" hit save? To get to +4...

OK and Jesus christ the stock setting was immediately noticeable

Hello All-

Just joined. I received the tune last week and I must say I couldn't be happier with the product and the results. I have the Q60 Red Sport RWD and the car has been a blast with this tune. Today, the weather here in Northern NJ finally cooled down all the way to the low 70's (from mid 90's) and man the car absolutely rips. I especially like the ease of installation and dollar to HP/Trq ratio of this tune.

To Terry, thanks for developing a quality and affordable product. Looking forward to any future enhancements and products for our 3.0t's. Thanks again.

Correct, once on map3 you can adjust the boost added over stock manually. Default is 0 for map3.

OK thanks... I'm just nit picking now but if this came set as +3 from factory, why doesn't it show as +3 when I first connected instead of 0? I kept trying to find the +3 setting lol.

Hi Terry.

Can't wait to get mine, on back order. Anyway, is it the same process to modify to just run +2 instead of the default +3?

Map1 the default map does not use that adjustment field.

Right.. sorry but now I'm worried and confused. Map3 showed "0" when i first connected. I changed it to "4.0" and saved...

Did I change it to +4 or +7 (3stock +4)?? Should the Map3 show 0 or 3 when you first connect?

Rear diff ratio is lower on the RS, as is improved heat extraction to manage the HP difference. It's not just the tune.

You can make a SS as fast as the RS but it will cost $$$. Speed always does.

Quick update - running at +6psi boost on 1:4 ratio E85 & 93 octane fuel. Zero issues - pure joy - bit of a reduction in gas mileage (from 25mpg to about 24.5mpg) following the addition of E85 to the tank (as one would expect.) I just took the boost to +6.5psi (same fuel mix) - quick drive today showed no ill-effects (car was cool and air is around 90 degrees in Texas this morning.) More testing today to see if she likes the additional 0.5psi bump when hot and with a near 100 degree day on tap.

Not sure how you are confusing yourself... This is pretty simple. Default for map3 is 0psi. By changing it to 4.0 you're going to run 4psi over stock when on map3.

Default How to Mix E85 with 93 Octane - 07-26-2017, 12:01 PM

Hello,

i am running the tune at 5 PSI and i was wondering how i would go about adding E85 to my 93 octane gas. i got half a tank of 93 octane left. I wanted to know how many gallons of E85 i should add to that. The spec sheet for the Q50 shows that it has a 20 gallon tank.

Last edited by VirusbetaX; 07-26-2017 at 12:02 PM.. Reason: tank size added in

I'd shoot for around 5 gallons to a full tank. So 2.5 gallons to a half tank.

Ok I had a question in regards to the fuel. Is there any long term effects that may cause major negative co sequences if I repeatedly use this fuel? I tested 1 gallon and the car ****ing flies! It's amazing.

Not familiar enough with the platform to offer meaningful long term advice on E85 mixtures, but generally speaking I would not expect any issues up to 30%. Some countries where the Q50 is sold are E25 by law, and the USA is E10 in most states, so the components are generally built to accommodate ethanol.

In my area some gas stations have 93 octane with no ethanol and others have 93 with 10% ethanol. So for the most horsepower and best performance I assume 93 with 10% ethanol is the best choice?

93 with 30% ethanol would be better.

little bit of a hiccup....i just got a CEL on the dash restarted the engine to see if it would go away to no avail. Disconnected the module for now and plugged in the originals. Gonna see what happens. The CEL is not blinking and engine seems to be performing regularly. Scheduled a service visit for Monday to see whats going on obviously gonna return to stock for that. Should I do an ECU reset and see if that fixes the issue? Cable could have been lose on the connection. Not sure yet.

For any CEL step 1 is to just read the code using an OBDII code reader. Then email that in to tech support and we can help you diagnose if its related and what to do going forward.

Those are electrical codes for the sensors you're attaching too. Indicates a loose pin in the harness, connection issue, or some other physical problem with the unit itself.
