Default Introducing Tuning Tech by Frank Smith Map Switching and E85 Conversion

Introducing Tuning Tech by Frank Smith Map Switching and E85 Conversion



Map Switching for MSS54|MSS54HP

TTFS is proud to announce in the very near future we will be offering map switching for our MSS54|MSS54HP (E46 M3) market. This is a product announcement thread to get the community's feet wet on some new projects we have in the works. Without going into extreme detail the map switching will allow switching between 2 maps on the MSS54 ECU and switching between 5 maps on the MSS54HP ECU. Switching between maps will be done while stopped through the cruise control. The map you are in will also be displayed on the instrument cluster. You will default to the last map you were on when you first turn your vehicle on similar to Sport button memory. If you have the MSS54HP ECU for example you can set your maps for stock map, 91 octane, 93 octane, valet, and so on. You choose what you want your maps to be. Again this is an announcement thread. We may add to this and/or change some things as we get ready to release this feature. We will update this thread with information, pictures, and videos as we have it available.


E85 Conversion Kits

TTFS is also proud to announce our E85 conversion kits for the MSS54|MSS54HP NA and FI markets. TTFS will be offering a kit which consists of a TTFS E85 compatible fuel pump and hose for NA vehicles. The stock fuel injectors will remain for the NA kits.


NA E85 Kit




The kit for the FI vehicles is identical to the NA kit the only difference is the FI kit will have larger fuel injectors.


FI E85 Kit





TTFS is announcing the E85 conversion kits along with the map switching at the same time because they go hand in hand. One of the maps you can set to is E85. This is especially nice for those of you who would like some extra power but may not necessarily want it all the time. For example for the consumers that track there vehicles. This extra power at the track would be a huge plus. Especially CA residents who do not have the option of 93 octane. The TTFS conversion kit is not limited to E85 fuel only. You can run race fuel with this set up and also select that as one of your maps. The possibilities are great with these two projects we are working on. We will have dyno graphs in the near future for you to see the delta from 93 octane to E85. Stay tuned!

You can make a custom flange to connect it to your stock header with JB weld.

Sound is an 8/10, I was expecting it to sound like a V8 since its a V8 exhaust. It doesn't, anybody know why this is? Does it have to do with how I installed it?

No less. Alcohol is less energy dense than petrol so you need more volume hence decreasing MPG. BUT it burns MUCH cooler thus letting you run more timing and make more HP.

What sort of HP does running an E85 tune give?

How will the map switching be different than what Paffy and msstuning has been offering?

I'm speaking on TTFS's behalf, but I suspect it will be bundled with advanced mechanical and technical support and backed by advanced E85 (or alternate fuel in general) tuning experience, not to mention unique product development for the platform.

This is a win across the board for E46 M3 owners!
