ECM Modifications (HP Tuners v3.2.x required)

23. The attached zip file contains a baseline HPT file for reference on enabling the Flex Fuel sensor only. All performance related tables are stock in the baseline file. The changelog.txt file will indicate what is required and what is optional (but highly recommended). I have not looked at a 2017 file so I do not know if everything for the 2016 will translate over. The stock Flex Fuel tables are very good from a performance perspective so you will realize a high increase in torque across the board without actually doing a dyno tune. If you make it this far take the time after installation to monitor knock retard and adjust accordingly. Depending on ambient conditions you might need to lower timing in the higher g/cyl areas of the high octane spark tables. GM did not optimize the timing when you start getting past 0.92 g/cyl.

Hi Tim, Thanks for the great write-up. I just finished installing mine today (bought it from skidmark though very similar). I have my HP Tuners programmer on order and should get it next week.

So the GM ethanol tune is already pretty decent? My 2016 SS is stock with just the E85 sensor. Can you tell me what parts I should tune to maximize the HP gains? thanks for any info. -John

Kudos to DMS for a top quality kit and to TSloper for the great writeup! The kit was a breeze to install but I have to admit that I was a little nervous about the location of pills 38 until I found this writeup. The photo put my mind at ease. I initially installed the jumper harness on coil #6 but relocated to #8 per TSloper's instructions after I discovered that the plastic "valve cover" will fit much better with the harness plugged in at the back of the motor.
I loaded my Ted Jannetty E85 tune and can't wait to fill up with e85 on my way home tomorrow;I should be on fumes so I should realize the full benefitsunami of the fuel/tuning.
UPS guy showed up with my Pray ported IM/TB just as I finished loading the tune (thanks Brett). Now I know what I will be doing tomorrow evening!

Make that pin 38. My phone thinks I can't spell - I'm actually not too bad, won the spelling been in 5th grade lol!

Does anyone know what the two 4 pin (male and female) connectors do?

Does anyone have a tune for a blend of 91 octane and E-85? I need a tut for hp tuners.

If you choose not to implement the optional changes (except for the cranking tables) you will be good to go but may not be maximizing the torque output. If you implement the optional changes (not including the cranking tables) you will likely have to tweak the high octane table at the upper load, upper RPM areas to minimize knock retard. Those areas of the tables are extrapolations more than anything. As the weather gets cooler you may hit areas of the table that need some tweaking. When I say tweaking it could literally be just a degree or two of timing to clean it up in specific spots. I've got many many logs under my belt on this and my personal tune was meticulously done to get things as perfect as possible on my car. My personal tune also blends my E10 tune and E85 tune in a way that I didn't compromise one for the other.

Shift points on the A8 are another area that don't "need" to be changed but should be changed if you are maximizing everything. The stock shift points may no longer be ideal. I created a Matlab script to read in my Dynojet torque curve and calculate the new shift points based on that curve.

Enabling the Flex Fuel sensor is relatively straight forward but as you start getting into more advanced issues of blending gas and E85 tunes, or trying to maximize everything, there are a lot of subtleties that I don't think most would pay attention to. I learned a lot when doing the straight E85 tune.

Best thing to do is just ask questions as you go. Trying to explain how/why would take too long

I just opened up this tune file as I plan on loading it into my car tonight. It looks like everything you suggested is already turned on. Does that mean once I load this tune everything should be good to go with your suggestions? Or is there something I'm missing?

I have a problem, my ff kit e85 it`s connected in the pin 38 correctly, my hp tunners it`s now enable and flex fuel in sensor, the problem is in the scanner no detected % of e85 and no have signal, actualy have 12v, ground and signal is 0.17 from the ECM

Photo with wire wrap

Thanks for the write up! Just installed mine. Only differences were that my instructions from DSX said the retaining clips were not reused. Also, the wire on mine was white and stuck out like a sore thumb so I used some wire wrap to make it a little more stealthy. I’m getting a custom tune after my rotofab comes in and should be good to go!
