Yes, its supposed to have maf connection

My previous BMW X1 has this option in the monitor where in it will show your HP and Torque. Can this be asked from the developer of the app to add? Is this possible?

Hmmm. Interesting. Mine definitely doesn't have MAF. Maybe it's a really early revision? I'll have to email support and see if there's a way for me to add the MAF connection.

Everything is hooked up and working, no CEL so that's good. Still working on getting connected to it via Bluetooth.

Got 3 gal of e85 + filled rest of tank with 92 pump gas. Should put me at 93-94 octane depending. Will get some map 2 logs and send them over as a baseline. It’s a 2 hr round trip to get e85, but this tank should be fun!

Default cx5 - 92 pump + 3gal e85 - 04-30-2022, 01:38 PM

For e85, looking at the volatility classes in the ethanol handbook (appendix E), looks like this time of year I get class 2, which might be 75% ethanol, but could range anywhere between 51-83%.

Using this ethanol calc - for 3 gal of e85 at 75% on a 15.3 gal tank, it might be around 93.5 octane.

Map1-92-3gal-e85-3rd-gear-pull

Map2-92-3gal-e85-3rd-gear-pull

Looks pretty good!

So this sounds promising for PNW gas: 93 Octane/e85 fuel | GOLFMK7 - VW GTI MKVII Forum / VW Golf R Forum / VW Golf MKVII Forum

Yes, this is only a theory, BUT I base this on real world results. I have always ran tunes for 93 octane, over 3 completely different cars, and never not only not had any "problems", when logs are actually studied and custom tuning is done, it is absolutely confirmed that our PNW 92 performs like as expected of 93 octane. Now, would 93 minimum be even better? Most likely, as they probably have closer to 94 octane in their areas, but when I have used canned 93 tunes I have always seen better log numbers on our "92" than when I was running 91 tunes on 91 gas in California.
Terry what 93 pump gas do you tune map2 with?

I really wanted to get the e85 flex fuel kit but without having anymore horsepowers from running it because of tuning capabilities, I'm going to hold off. i really want to support you guys, because you put effort into our little platform almost from day one. But at the moment i won't reap any benefits from having it.

One thing i am really interested in and I think you guys were thinking about making is the catch can. That is something i definitely would love to purchase!

Any 93 is fine. If you have an issue send or post a log and we can review the issue.

I think I saw awhile back in this thread you guys mentioned you were working on a catch can kit for the turbo 3. Any idea when that would be available?

Not sure if anyone else noticed, but the cx50 2.5T is now a twin scroll turbo instead of a single turbo! Interesting.

Terry what 93 pump gas do you tune map2 with?
Well, hello there, I just came from a MK7 Golf to a new '22 M3TH, my new JB4 arrives today, I just read all 51 pages over 2 slow days at work and after seeing you guys talk about the PNW 92, I had been itching to tell this story again about our "92" octane, then on the last page I'm actually quoted from my MK7 time, WTH, that's crazy! LOL!

So yes, I've been running 93 tunes across a number of cars and running 91 tunes in Cali and our 92 fuel runs better on 93 tunes than 91 tunes work on 91 Cali gas, far less corrections, period. Now, with my Mk7 Golf, it just made ridiculous gains so easily but I had the 1.8 without Cobb support so I just chose a 91 octane flash tune as I drive to Cali sometimes. But when I had a Cobb tuner before and could hold multiple tunes, I would have 91, 93 and e30 and I never had to add any e85 to run a 93 tune on PNW 92, I would just go from absolutely 0 corrections in the summer to a few small ones on winter blend. I've even heard some Canadians say our 92 works better than their 94.

Anyway, my Beta (Still?) unit for my M3TH arrives today and I will be installing on Sunday and will be around here to learn and grow with you guys on this platform as well!
