    Its too lean. You need basically double sized injectors/fuel to run it. Then obviously a tune for the larger injectors.

    The engine itself is E85 rated. It's the fuel system, including injectors that is rated only to E15.

    The tune itself has options of flex fuel. I don't know if this is a general base computer plat form used on other vehicles or it was considered to run in the Cruze.

    With the 93oct tune I'll see the car maybe just leave the bottom of the temp gauge after a complete 20min warm up on remote start. (I know you hyper milers are hating me for that statement lol)
    You warm up you're car for 20 minutes?!
    ^Usually sarcasm.

    If anything I say offends you... you might need a snickers.

    ICruze2, hows this tune? Is it different than the standard Trifecta tune?
    I had Vince run me a tune for it September 2011, when I ran 15.3, I haven't run it since. He told me the computer was showing me hp/tq numbers in the 190 range. This was before my axle-back/silencer delete and my fmic. I am planning to get the larger injectors so I can run a full tank of e85 and I believe I can break the 15 mark, hopefully with a 14.8...wishful thinking I know. I have a 1lt/rs automatic

    and yes, it dropped me 3 tenths in the 1/4 on 1/3 of a tank of e85 and 2/3 92

    My best on 93 with tune, intake, and catback was a 16.1, but I basically spun through 1st, could've easily been in the mid 15's had I stuck to the pavement.

    I'm hoping with the E85 tune and injectors, I'm going to try a 1/3 tank of full E85, and pinpoint optimal ignition timing for an easy mid/low 15's, and ultimately shoot to be one of the first 14sec Cruzes.

    You didn't get the injectors in the kit?
