Good morning all,

Happy Friday!!!!

Had a question about E85/flex fuel tuning and Ethenol sensors. I really want to install the Flexlink Bluetooth sensor so I can view E percentage on my phone instead of dealing with measuring at the pump every time. Barth, HHP and tapped performance all install them. One won't tune without one installed. The tuner I want to use said they don't use them at all. I have come across threads where people state the sensor will restrict flow causing the driver's side to lean out but all hear say, No facts.. For anyone that is E tuned with a sensor are you having issues? How is it plumbed in the fuel line? I spoke with Rick @ tapped for a while yesterday about this. He has a plug n play kit that he uses and sells all the time. He said I could upgrade the rails but the biggest restriction he sees is the factory fuel pressure sensor size, It's smaller than the E sensor. I'm won't really at the power level to upgrade the rails. I don't want to spend the $500 if I don't have to. If it does cause the system to lean out why would the tuners listed above use them?

I basically plan on doing the same. I'm not wanting him to use the sensor to tun/calibrate E percentage. I'm just looking for a way to view other than a tester at the pump every time. Some people say when installing the sensor it restricts flow and can lean out the drivers side. Below is the kit I'm looking at.

I thought there was another version out there that has a by-pass built in to not restrict flow.

It’s still restrictive the way they do it. There’s a company that sells a billet piece that bypasses it but also puts fuel through to the sensor. That’s the best way to do it imo

Has anyone here used the Bluetooth sensor or the bypass? Seems like a nice setup if it works. Just seems like using a test tube every fill up would be a pain in tbe A**.
