Back on 93 tune after a year on ethanol...

That's odd. I know of at least one guy here in SATX that does custom tuning (Fiesta specifically) but there's some mixed opinions on him and I'll leave it at that. What most of us do is e-tuning. It's super easy and gives great results. Some of the main tuners are Tune+, Dizzy, Stratified Auto, JST. Give them a search and you'll see they're super easy to work with. I'm currently tuned with Jason @ Dizzy Tuning but have worked with Stratified on other platforms.
Yeah I was told this from somebody at Nelson performance. I'm a little bit familiar with e tuning because of all the YouTube videos that I watched. So what you're telling me is I'm going to need a cobb access port in order to tune my Fiesta ST through e tuning.

what you're saying is no matter what I'm going to need a Cobb access port

Essentially, yes. I wouldn't mess with SCT Tuners or JB4's. Just get an Accessport and once you see all that it can do you'll understand why it's superior to the other options. All of the E-Tuners, as far as I know, only use Accessport. If you're open to using E85 I can help you find stations that are local to you, mixing is pretty straight forward and the power gain is amazing. I'm in SATX so I know where most of the E85 stations are located. Feel free to reach out to me if you need any help.

I was trying to be vague but apparently I wasn't vague enough @Dpro lmao.

Too add to the original post I have found that traction on the stock snail has suffered (albeit on 4/32nds RS-Pros on E30 at 50F). I have my inspection in the morning and if I fail I'll buy another set of RS-Pro's but if I pass I'll wait a little longer and get RT-660's and see what all the hype is about. The thought of dead hooking in second on the RT660 makes me feel all tingly inside and wanting to install my 14psi Turbosmart WGA for the Dizzy E40a tune lol. Luckily I'm in Texas and I can run 200tw tires all year and be fine other than the somewhat rainy season. I don't know how you BT guys do it.
Ya I got some new wheels sitting here waiting for RT660’s going back to 17’s gonna try out 215/40’s on 8’s

I got to thinking today, maybe it's easier overall to just run the 93 tune, but if you did want that extra 30 HP for any reason, but just don't need so much low down torque, there's no reason why any tuner can't finesse how the power comes in. I agree that if your TC kicks in across a wide swath of the RPM range, it's just wasted power, even on 93.

Tuners tend to max out power all across the RPM range, but I've seen some tuners keep things very conservative in the low and even midrange then go very aggressive on the top end. These cars being FWD just struggle to benefit from so much torque as the car squats and lifts all that weight off the front wheels.

Anyway, all to say, maybe consider a revision for the E30 tune for when you wanna mess around, especially during the summer time and you're likely to make less power and have more traction.

This is why I went with a 91 pump gas tune on my S280. Without doing Aud fuel or bigger injectors I would only bump my HP about 12hp and my TQ around 25 ft lbs or so doing E30.

I can also say right now the car is freaking fast as hell and I have people tryng to race just because they see me come off a light and are like shit he is fast.

The other day it was a guy in a IS300 today its was a guy in a LS1 Camaro like a 2018 lol. It was funny because I do nothing to provoke these guys they just hear me and see me and are like ok lets go. :ROFLMAO:
