    I'd start with a full scan of all ecu's and reviewing hardware. I doubt its belt slip or bad gas.
    I am going to try to get some data in the next day or so, I will also check under the hood to see if anything seems off.

    Thanks,

    How do you identify belt slip? Is it possible for it to slip and re engage while under load?

    Any input would be helpful.

    Mine did the same within two days of a 93 tune. It was my plugs. Try checking the gap

    I've replaced plugs twice and coils once. Doesn't seem to be the issue, unfortunately.

    Anyone ever have EPC light come on and car goes into limp mode after a lot of aggressive driving?????????
    It happened after I pulled on a Challenger SRT8 from 50mph role..guy was shocked. It was amazing..well worth the 10 minutes I sat on the side of the road until car cooled down.
    I知 stg1 ecu/tcu..and I was running 4 gallons of Ethanol on top of my usual 93 octane.

    EPC on stage 1 or 2 at this point is always a car specific issue.... see my comments on the previous page if you have had your intake on your car for any length of time.

    Good chance you were running lean due to too much e85. Has happened to me more than once.

    That would also be my guess. If 4gals of E85 mixed in 16gal tank with pump gas containing E10 you're at E29 assuming no elevated E level to start with. If you're just mixing 4gals of E85 in with an already existing mixture in the tank and not on E, you're going to be reasonably above that.

    I recently drove 4+ hours and picked up a bunch of E85. How much should I be mixing in?

    On a 93 tune? I would keep it below 3.5 gal per fill-up, personally.

    I tend to throw exactly 3 gallons of e85 in at each fill-up and have had 0 issues. If I ever have to refuel prior to the gas light turning on, I just stick with regular fuel to avoid any risks of leaning out with too much e85.

    E85 calculator app is cheap. You can use it to estimate what you need to stay at a specific E value based on what is in the tank already and how much fuel you have left. Car runs noticibly better at e25 for me. If you're adding much more than that you're likely only eating into MPG further with no real benefit on 93 tune.

    8K2927156M- DSG 9/20/2017 - 4000 RPM - Launch count increased from 200 to 30000.

    No need to update unless have hit the launch count of 200 or VCDS shows you are close. No other changes have been made to the file.

    Hey Tony,

    Any sort of ETA on revised B8 files? Been wanting to send logs/get on dyno, but have been waiting. If they won't be out for a while, I'll just go ahead.

    Thanks!

    No idea on fitment on a B8/B8.5. We used to use these on B5S5, 996TT and 997TTs.
