Wow totally interested in this as of the other day! Subscribed and will update if I happen to learn anything further.

Are you planning to run 85 or e30?

Innovate Motorsports offers one of the best ethanol gauges I've seen. Several of us have installed, see my IG @becauseHYDE16 for several photos of the sensor installed.

So which sensor exactly do you need to run? And I thought these cars could read wideband off the stock 02 sensors... Obviously could be wrong. Having the ethanol sensor would be great at least. Any more info? I'm seeing it likely gets powered and communicating through that gauge.

So you basically need a gm ethanol sensor. And then how its wired up and its placement in the fuel line is dependent on the kit

Just so there’s no confusion. This I just an ethanol content analyzer. It tells you what percentage of ethanol is in your fuel. That’s it. It does not communicate with your ecu. You’ll need a pro tune for whatever percentage of ethanol you try to run, E30, E50 etc.

Ryan,

Are you referring to the wideband sensor or the ethanol sensor? I read the directions from innovate for the wideband bung stating 24" away and on the top half of the downpipe to prevent damage from condensation, but was curious to know how you oriented it for best ease of access and installation (9 o'clock, 1 o'clock, etc). I looked over your IG several times and didn't see any wideband close ups. Sorry if I missed it.

I have kind of a follow up questions...

I'm running E30 (not measured yet) with meth and planning I can run the app 100 tune doing so, with meth covering any additional feeling required. We have not logged yet but does this sound safe? Sorry to derail if I am derailing.
