    No way to run straight E85 right now. We're running into low fuel pressure issues as we go up. WMI = Water/Methanol Injection.

    Right now flash tuning is at the very early stages of development. Maybe in a couple years it'll be the way to go, but definitely not yet.

    Each BOV will have a slightly different sound, so it's just preference. No real performance gain to be had until you're hitting really high boost levels at least.

    I have bigger injectors sitting in my garage and upgrade the fuel pump?

    What is a WMI? And the J4 would be better than a dyno tune at a confident shop?

    You will need a fuel mixture sensor in order to run E85 only and of course a tune.

    We actually have not found the limits of the factory pumps and injectors (yes, pumps, these cars come equipped with two pump a low pressure in tank and a high pressure located in the engine bay) which makes the upgrading part more involved than in your G8.

    The guys at BMS are working on developing a flex fuel option for the Stinger, no telling on when it will be released tho.

    Yeah of course need the sensor, I was one of the first SS ( no g8) that went flex fuel with custom wiring and sensors before a plug and play kit was available. I don't think I would spend the money on a e30 mixture, I'd want to get more info on the possibility of e85. Headed up to a local shop now to see what they say, they usually don't do kias but said they will pull the tables and do some digging for me. I might just test out some options on our stinger *

    Hey there @joshb0718, it's a pleasure to have ya here! Sounds like you've got all of the drive and financing necessary to waste a TON of dough on a great car! LOL

    So, when it comes to exhaust, there's about 20 different systems out there. I personally feel that THIS system by BAQ is bar none the best system I have heard! It's stainless and dual mode and gives the car the "mean" growl I want without the ridiculous sound of a ricer import or without crazy drone.

    Check it out!

    Hell yeah, life's too short to live stock! Lol I can't remember the last nice car I didn't customize! Picked up my truck 2 weeks ago and customized it like crazy too. I'll check that out thanks! Car and truck photo -
