Locally e85 is the cheapest so this would be awesome if it could be done, though you can't pick up e85 everywhere so that may be an issue.
A/T is controlled by a totally separate computer.i have a question about the a/t tunes can you take off the automatic shift on the sport mode or make it shift at 6.5k instead of 6k rpms?
Nope. Plug and play.Id there anything else to do other then swaping the ECU?
no you wouldnt have to since your keys are programmed into the BCM which isnt part of thisso how is this hp increase achieved? More boost? If I order the extra ecu will I have to get my keys programmed?
+ timing. and they havent posted it but also probably due to increased octane. generally how its done in tuning ^_^. not much else.so did they increase boost, adjust a/f? Just curious how they got the power.

Thats not necessarily true. A properly tuned car will always last longer than an improper one. That being said this car runs rich from the factory which is worse on certain parts than a perfect afr. The turbo will probably not last as long though due to the higher boost but its not over spinning it so its not really a problem.I'm sure there is negative effects of running a tune.. Your taking a car, regardless of how capable it may be, and changing the way a lot of things work in order to have the extra hp.. I'd say, this is strictly from my point of view, that your probably going to have your turbo go out a lot sooner as well as replacing some other parts that it puts more tension on.. Not knowing everything about cars I'm not sure what all parts would be affected but none the less, it's gonna add wear and tear on the car..
