So in short - we wouldn't run an 'e' blend until then (when tuned).

In the meantime, any suggestions ? Seems odd that Fuel-It doesn't actually offer one that would integrate with their full kit. I see Earls, E85 freaks, Aeromotive etc.. We'd just need the proper dash fittings and barbs.
On my m235i I had the fuel labs fuel filter and custom an lines, if you have the push lock style lines it will be a huge pita to convert back to AN. I used a fuel filter holder and bolted it in the engine bay. Can't really remember too much detail now on how I mounted it.

Fuel labs is probably the best, but the filters are single use.

I'm looking at an option to add a HPFP inline filter just for some extra peace of mind also, but nothing seems available without heavy modifications.
It could be, because now you're forcing the injectors to flow past their designed limit and ethanol lacks lubricity and tends to dry out seals. That's why when running e85 always run a top cylinder lube, power plus has some good stuff.

Thank you for this. I'll look into the Fuel Labs a little more, could have sworn their filters were replaceable.

You replace the cartridge inside not the whole housing. If you use e85 make sure you get the correct filter material.

You're right. I meant to say reusable. The labs 818 is 10 micron, e85 compatible and uses a cellulose filter element (disposable). In order to move to a reusable you'd step up to a 45 micron. At the moment, kind of stuck with routing the fuel line up to the LPFP. Might hold off until this is resolved.

Just a quick update. UPS dropped off the replacement flange and new bolts. We also received an email indicating that the new bolts are longer and should help us in maintaining a 15nm torque. Dorch has been amazing in handling this issue. It's comforting to know that if something goes wrong, they reply lighting fast and ship the part overnight so you can finish up and get back on the road. Yep, amazing.
