Hey folks, been searching through threads and not found what Im looking for. Any of you who have an 18 and up MT-82 with E85, I would appreciate your impressions of the torque/power increase in the lower RPM's. w/E85. I had an 18 A10 and it made a decent difference but I would like to hear from you folks with the manual trans. Thanks!

on the Lund E85R tune, there's noticeable increase in torque on the lower rpms. The car simply feels more responsive and pulls harder

I have a FBO 2019 Bullitt with MT82-D4 on E85. I don’t notice a huge amount of power and torque down low, but once I reach 3800 rpm and beyond, it wakes up and gets after it.

It's definitely a noticeable difference. So much so that the closest station to me with E85 is 40 mins away and I make the drive to fill up a 55gal drum at a time and keep it at the house.

I wondered if that wouldn't be the case. I've owned an A10 w/E85 and felt it made a noticeable difference. Like you, I would drive out of my way to get it, although I never bought a drum. Thats commitment right there. :) I drove a 6sp yesterday and it certainly didn't "feel" as strong as the A10. I couldn't help but wonder if it wouldn't be a modest help to the low speed SOTP torque.

With the amount I drive my car I was going once a week and its 40 mins in the opposite direction I normally travel so it became a pain in the ass. Its definitely more of a mid-high range gain. Once it gets around 3500 rpm it just pulls hard and consistently all the way to 7k. There are some gains down low to though.

E85 will give you noticeable gains throughout the power curve for sure. If E85 is readily available it is a great option to add. Hit me up and we can get you dialed in.

Feel Free to DM me or call with any questions.
