    E85 remote tune

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi all,

    First time poster on this section.
    After always wanting one i finally bought my B5 S4 at the beginning of the year, it's had a Giac stage 1 tune and an exhaust fitted by previous owner. Here is a pic of the car


    Since then i have also bought some awe downpipes to go with it.

    Wanted to go down the path of a custom e85 tune with some bigger injectors and max out the k03's before they blow up and i go stage 3...

    Can anyone recommend someone reputable and that can do it remotely as i'm in Australia?

    Thanks,

    Sener

    You dont have to buy everything through them although I would recommend at least buying the injectors. The complete fueling kit Blake/Etspec offers is a great deal, I didnt know he offered it when I got my fuel pump and MAF housing otherwise I would have.

    I guess that price from Blake (etspec) is something available by contacting him directly? The etspec website doesn't list the tuning as being that inexpensive.

    Says $450 for both pump gas and e85 tune. You also get a flashing cable. Not sure where your looking on his site. I don't know Blake just heard good things. All 3 of my s4's are tuned by brad

    I hadn't read the product description, just the titles, that's a good deal!

    The flashing cable is different from what Solo has, their site says the flash loader will hold up to 10 tunes. etspec is a better sounding option, I don't see a lot of value in the flash loader.

    Oh I know it's just an eBay cable. I like the idea of a flash loader just not that price . Now a flash loader for $50 that I can keep an e54 and pump gas tune on that's powered by the obd port would be nice for trips but eBay and a old laptop work just fine

    If you want people more local, rockersteady on here is a tuner and lives in The Land Down Under somewhere. Fixed a glitch on my current tune free of charge, and I am very grateful. So there is the tried and proven route (Brad) vs the benefit of having a local tuner.
    I hate it when my car acts like a little bitch, treating me like the bitch

    I know ed and he is a great guy, sounds like he knows his stuff it's just that he is very busy and too hard to get a hold of these days. Going to give either brad or blake a shot, havn't decided yet

    Brad is the Bees knees!

    He worked with me a lot and helped me diagnose a few things wrong on my car and gave me a rock solid 91 and e85 tune
