Hopefully John will fall in love with our M's from the E30 to the present. I heard that several of the HPF employees own earlier M's, so he (John) will get a chance to become even more charmed with our Bavarian car roots.

Then, make a STANK load of power!

HPF and meth injection will always be a trend because of world wide sporadic availability of E85. And despite some controversy meth injection does work extremely well. But I do see a future for more HPF E85 tunes with the advent of AEM Infinity Flex capabilities coming on line at some point.

I know as a Canadian (we don't get e85) I'd like to see 94 octane tune and 94 octane with meth as an option in addition to the 91 setup. Also with the 6766 and the tubular manifold top mount and qick spool and VE based computer with decent traction control. Also would like to be able to peak under the computers hood and have real time monitoring via laptop. probably a low priority with other projects in the works

If you have the software there is PLENTY you can monitor via a laptop. I have seen it done..but just for tuning purposes, not for display only. I suppose...why not?

I didn't know 94 was so readily available. You should have that tune available to look at. Would it be hard for HPF ton get a hold of the exact same gas in Oregon somehow? Somebody would have to ship it in, I would think. Maybe ship the car full of 94?

Shipping the car down here with his 94 Pump Gas would be the only way I can guarantee it would be done right. Even though John is here now we wont be throwing together different tunes all the time. If a customer wants a few extra pounds of boost thats something simple we can do for a fee. We will be rolling out the new HPF tunes with what Injectors, Wastegate, Turbo and other options you will need to work properly. You always have the option to ship us the vehicle to tune to whatever specific components you would like to run. Tuning is only "A la carte" if the vehicle is with us

When I bought my used Stage 2.5 (now a stage 3) I know it had a special HPF tune for 93 octane since Florida has it everywhere. It was good for a significant boost in power. That is a la carte tuning and I am sure costs a few bux extra.

One of the many services that HPF offers. They can do a higher boost tune too if the build will accept it. but then you run into automatically voiding some or all warranties. Details at HPF. Things may depend on just how much the boost is increased. The sales guys can discuss anything with in reason I would imagine.

IDK what a 94 octane tune would do to the warranty. Probably nothing, but ALWAYS ask to be certain!
