Hey thanks!

So when I did my first logs after getting the fully loaded file, we found that California gas wasnt a true 91 octane. I started to get timing pull at 89 octane setting through Vagcom so we left it at 88 to be safe. I have yet to get the flexfuel setup so for now Im just bumping up octane and not seeing the true benefits of e85.

I was planning on it but depending on the cost I might just go with the TTE420 setup.

It's 1700 plus 550 labor. And you need to have a hpfp already install.
