Yep, we got on the topic of you and your car while both him and Jen were at my house doing the preliminary harness measurements.
It didn't take long to get a good impression, he definitely knows his wiring stuff and sharp with all things AEM.
Question, where about inline did you mount the E-85 sensor on your car?
I mounted mine about the same distance on the return fuel line as the fuel rails are to the fuel regulator, along the passenger side foot box and about 8 inches above the main frame rail.
I'm hoping that by keeping the distance about the same as the fuel rails it may help with the timing and reading of the incoming fuel mix.
Saul,With you guys already up and running at least I know that I'm heading in the right direction, I'm really looking forward to actually doing some tuning soon.
Trevor is your fuel system/lines already set up for E-85?
Also, do you know if you can run a single 3-wire oil pressure transducer style sensor and feed the signal to both the Infinity ECU and the gauge? or do you need to run separate sensors for each?
The reason I ask is because I just sent my oil pressure gauge back to Speedhut to reprint the face to 150 psi and have it converted for use with a 3-wire transducer style sensor. (Another thing I took your advise on Trevor)
While I was at it I also sent in the temperature gauge to have them convert it from celsius to fahrenheit.
The smaller ID750s are the same price as 1000s. I can easily tune the ID1000. It will just be at a lower duty cycle on an NA application. Yes, they are overkill for NA but for the same price, I'd rather have the larger ones in case I ever decide to boost it later down the road and won't have a wasted investment in the smaller injectors.60lb injectors will be more than enough for NA...that's what I run. I made 843 rwhp on my turbo 2011 Mustang on E85 with ID1000s - don't need them that big
Great tip on the carb defender. I'll check it out. Yeah, pretty clear on the gasoline pickling suggestion in light of the hygroscopic effects of E-85. Will ensure a heavy concentration of gasoline is in the tank and ran through the engine before any extended periods of sitting.I haven't played around with the TC knob yet, I haven't actually got a chance to drive the car on the street.
I highly recommend Driven's carb defender. It coats all your lines and hard parts to keep them from breaking down.
Also e85 absorbs water from the atmosphere. Don't leave it in the tank for a long time, especially people back east when they don't drive over the winter.

Make sure you send an update out when you start playing with your traction control. I'm really interested in your thoughts. I've been so impressed with it.
I did not install a secondary brake switch.Did you end up installing a secondary brake switch to be used with the TC? I got the Motec adapter per your recommendation, but had to run both the front wheels off of it because one of my other inputs was being taken up by the trans speed sensor. Im hoping to have my car back in the road in the next 30 days.
Hello Saul,Hello Trevor,
I'm running a reusable stainless element 100 Micron filter mounted at the vertical post where it is accessible yet it is out of the harms way.
Because I have not yet started the engine much less put any miles on it, did your research reveal any compromise with a 10 micron filter? to me it seems like it may be a bit restrictive.
