thats why a flex fuel tune is so good, and we do not require logging, fill up with "flex fuel" and go drive. for the most part its fill up and go, very minimal back and forth!

Love your car by the way!
So $600 gets you 3 tunes (93, flex, E85)?
Does the tune turn off speed limiter?
Does the tune increase redline?

What is included with the 600 is the tuner, all the cables you need to tune it (you will need a windows pc) it also includes lifetime support for logging, revisions ETC. You can store several tunes on the tuner, When my mustang was n/a I had I believe 5 or 6 files on my tuner flex/93 flex/91, flex/93 with a more aggressive throttle mapping , 87, and 93 with more aggressive throttle mapping.



We do lift the speed limiter!

and we do raise the shift points(redline) as well!

you're fine! You are not limited to 3 but those are the most common. The tuner comes blank and you will need to save the stock tune then send it to us and fill out a tune request with the mods on the vehicle and what tunes you want/ what fuel you run. The turnaround for this once you have completed the tune request form is 24-48 hours

Great, last question.
This is a Mach 1 specific tune that you guys have tested on in-house Mach 1's?
Can you tell me 93 tune and Flex Fuel gains on Mach 1 you have tested on?
Thanks

DOH!
I've only got one station by me that has E85 and it tests low all the time, probably lower in winter.

So we have not done one in house on a Mach 1 but, the diffrence between Mach 1 and a GT is the Mach has a gt350 mani on it and cold air. We have also tuned a few Mach 1s remotely as well, they are all loving the tunes. the gains on a Mach 1 and the GT are about the same, 40 hp on 93 and about another 20 on e 85 vs stock

Hey Livernois, I agree with the info you have given here, but I didn't see anything about a flextune on a boosted Coyote. I'm boosted (ProCharger) with 11.5lbs of boost, kooks LTH with high flow cats, 1000cc injectors, fore return fuel system and E85 and 93 octane tunes. I was told (and saw first hand) that the boosted Coyote don't like flex tunes. I forgot the guys handle that started this thread, but yes E85 is the truth. Ina boosted car you gas mileage is horrible but the car is absolutely Berserk.

There will be almost no tuner that will offer a flex tune on a boosted setup. I would venture a guess if any tuner did they may require a physical ethanol sensor inline.

If you are asking if you can use an x4 with out tunes, the answer is no, you'd need to buy our mycal
