Default lookin for some help with a little different basemap

im going to tune for E85 here within the next two weeks and im looking to do everything i can to save some money on this. i definatly dont want to cut any corners, dont get me wrong im not trying to be cheap, just cost effective. what im wondering is if anyone has a .bin file for running a stock z6 on e85(with boost tables even tho i dont plan on getting on it) or any idea how much i should change last years tune to compensate for the drive to the tuners.

i live 4 hours from the tuner and have to drive my car down there. if i can get away with driving down there on e85 with an e85 basemap instead of getting charged and having the tuner drain the tank and then street tune it to the gas station to fill with E85 it would save alot of hassle and money.

im already planning on close to 800 dollars on this tuning trip and anywhere i can save some $ is nice. thanks for the help guys

Just drive there and bring a 17mm wrench to drain the tank as well as a jerry can to refill with E85 parking lot style.

im sure you could just change your injector size a little smaller to get what you need to run. if you have the car running good on 650's with 93 octane, then just change the injector size in your tune to 550's and im sure it would run to get you there.

my injector sizes are made up. i have no idea what you have in your car, but im sure 20% would be a good place to start.
