I'm interesting in getting this for my S8. I've had a JB4 in my N54, N55, and N63TU, so I'm very familiar. I'm especially interested in running ethanol mixes. Is this supported? E30 would be quite the hot ticket I imagine...

That's what I wanna hear haha. I wonder if the S8 could break into the tens with some E30 and JB4 only 😁

Hi George,

I emailed you as well. But here's a log of Map 1, 93 octane, 2013 S8. Stock hardware, JB4 only. Let me know what you think! I'd like to get more aggressive on ethanol mixes.

Thank you,
Adam

Hi Adam,

Check your email. My network has been whipping so sometimes mail lands up in drafts. Sent the response through now.

I normally run E40 with 91 on map 2 with no issues on my 2018 S6 which was our development car and it pulls like a freight train. Of course, the quality of fuel, elevation, and other factors can vary so logging is always best, but our S6 has no issues with 7-8 gallons of E85 topped off with 91.

Thanks for the note Jeff! I think I'll be heading that way. With straight 93 in the tank, map 2 wasn't mustering nearly the same timing as map 1. We'll see what George thinks.

In case other people are curious, logs 1 and 2, attached. Both are 1/8 mile dragy runs on 93 octane only. Map 1 "felt" noticeably stronger, and the dragy concurs.

Map 1: 7.37@96.22, 1.78s 60', 2200ft DA
Map 2: 7.60@93.75, 1.80s 60', 3200ft DA (different days, and I'm at ~1200ft elevation)

D4 S8 down to 7.2@99mph with JB4 only. Shooting for sixes with George's help. I think we'll get there!
