    Cool! Actually maintaining an 80/20 mix doesn't sound too tough. My concern is more with running that much ethanol through our cars. I've heard the HPFP doesn't like ethanol but I think it's just a rumor.

    What do you think about mixing 100 octane with 91 octane? That seems pretty reasonable and if you just went with a simple 50/50 split you'd have about 95 octane and you'd save a few bucks.

    Sorry about that. WOT means wide open throttle aka mashing the pedal! Me too, I'm still looking into the e85 mixing. So far it sound like a pain in the ass since you need to maintain a 80/20 mix of gas to ethonal. As soon as I finish my tank of gas and get my gas gauge sensor fixed this weekend I m going to just spring for a full tank of 100 octane and hold onto my steering wheel. Launch control is usually something a car with smg would have. I don't believe our cars dont have that options. If you did want a little better take off and less CPU control of throttle, turn off your DTC and DSC, push and hold down the DTC button for about 8 seconds and all the nannies are turned off.

    So far so good for me. I'm still on V301 sport map. I'm thinking about mixing E85 with 91 octane or mixing 100 octane with 91 to try and run the aggressive maps but I'm still in research mode.

    What is WOT?

    Also, do you know how to launch control these cars?

    Hey uwhusky, how are things going. I got my matte grills from Silicon Valley Concepts but Umnitza and Trinity Auto Sport have matte grills for a better price. Check out their websites. I got my Cobb on Friday last week and loaded V301 sport map. It definitely has a boosted power output but it seemed a little rough on consistent power delivery when you are doing a WOT. I changed the map on Sat to the beta V401 sport map and it is much smoother when delivering power in a WOT situation. In about a week I am going to experiment with the aggressive map since there is a gas station on the way home from work that has 100 octane at the pump. Ill let you know how it goes. Is the Cobb working good for you?
