    I didn't realize that true flex fuel capability for the Supra was now available. Obviously this requires Ecutek tuning only, correct?

    Had my Ecutek laying around for a month or so waiting for more car parts..

    Installed a Pure turbo upgrade recently and went through the tuning process with Speedindustry and @Paynful Jeff Payn . More complicated than BM3 at first but then you get the hang of it and all seems very easy esp data logging

    Car power mods are: Catted DP, exhaust, intake and Charge pipes

    Extreme weather here 70C IAT's so I asked for a very conservative 91 octane tune. Did a total of around 7 data logs and 4 map revisions till now. Car is running perfect with stock like smoothness, runs through gears like stock (No early up shift and lugging on auto like BM3 before), no drive train malfunctions or CEL of any sort. and pulls really hard all the way to red line. More lag due to the bigger turbo but kind of makes it more fun in a way due to the instant power after it spools, reminds me of a 997 Porsche Turbo

    Will do some dyno runs next week in a closed air conditioned garage (28C temp) alongside mixing it with MS109 in the end just to compare numbers

    Tuner @Paynful has exceeded my expectations in terms of communication (I live in Kuwait), insight, being very informative and also dedicated with excitement that puts a smile on your face

    Moe,

    Congrats on the new tuning platform switch (EcuTek) & Pure turbo upgrade.

    As you said, working on EcuTek for the first time, you get slightly lost. But once you get the hang of it. It becomes self explanatory. Having worked on EcuTek, with a few R35 GTR's. It did not take long before i got the hang of it. The company goes through a very rigorous Research & Development time-frame before they release any tuning options for a platform. Once it is out, every update and additional option added will put a bugger smile than the one before.

    Drive safe and enjoy your ride.

    Hi all, was wondering if anyone in the Nor Cal area recommends any tuners for the Supra. Currently have catless dp and full acrapovic exhaust and was contemplating what to do. I’m interested in getting Ecutek with Racerom (when it comes out) when I’m ready for a turbo upgrade and full E85 flex fuel when someone makes a kit for it, idk what the options are with Ecutek and if there’s a ~450whp ots tune with the Ecutek system. For now I just want something to get some more power on the stock turbo until I’m ready to upgrade.

    I am more than happy to chat with you on options. I will be working on full proper flex fuel working on larger turbos (there are extra challenges when doing with this, as you wlil need additoinal injectoin beyond the factory fuel system). If you purchased in the recent months your ECU is likely locked and it will need a bench unlock. I am over in Airzona one state over and have the tools to do this. And I do travel tune to california from time to time. Feel free to send me a mesage if you want to talk about options! =)

    I would reach out to Counterspace garage, they are in Cali and are actually in NorCal now working on customer cars.

    They've also have shown really nice power gains when using or Flex Fuel Kit on the Supra

    Sorry guys been hella busy over here, haven't logged on in a bit.


    Thank you. Our car is running a Borg Warner EFR9280



    Oh, thats MHD. yes it has shift light, you aren't losing it, haha.


    These cars and most modern day ECUs have a range of adjustment to add or remove fuel based on AFR and fuel flow and etc. Supra/BMW specific is able to adjust +/-34%. That is not flex fuel, so please don't confuse that. Without a proper Flex fuel setup you should always try to get as close as possible to the rated ethanol content of the tune you're using. I generally coach people to stay within 5-10% max of what the tune is rated for. So for an E50 tune... E40-E60 max, but ideally E45-E55 would be best. Especially when running upgraded turbos and etc. with higher boost.

    There is some room for variance, but don't get crazy. Because that adjustment range is only for fuel, not boost(load) and timing.

    Evasive Motorsport is in SoCal but would be worth the drive. They have built multiple Supras customers, SEMA, Formula Drift, Global Time Attack etc., and just finished my friend’s Supra (full bolt-on plus Pure Turbo upgrade). I also have extensive personal experience with them doing work on my GT-R. I highly recommend them.

    I was thinking going that route like your friend with the pure turbo. currently I have a catless dp with a full acrapovic exhaust and a chargepipe as well as an intake pipe. Can you ask your friend how much hp is he making on 91? My goal for my car is ~500 wheel plus it is my daily as well.

    Zack from CSG tunes out of TRL up in your area. I am also in Arizona and I travel to California for tuning. 500HP on ACN91 is do-able on a Pure 800. I am about to re-vamp my Pure 800 ACN91 maps using my own car over the next few weeks. I daily drive with that setup.

    Do you know what the hp limit (reliably) is for those pure800s? And what if I added flex fuel to that? Could I run full flex fuel with that setup?
