I don't think that would be a problem except your CEL will probably be on if you don't have a proper spacer. The tune will 'hide' the CEL from the dash but the code will still come up (which will be a problem if you need to get smogged)Went ahead and got the dsg tune, wouldn't say it's amazing but think it's helping with any slippage.
Separately, I have a stratified ecu base tune and I recently added a fmic and looking to do a downpipe. Eventually I would like to swap in an is38.
Recognizing that I would leave some power in the table, can I install the downpipe and wait to retune until the is38?
It will probably be a year unless I fall into some money.
The testing kit is the cheapest way to be sure. You should definitely get it and test the E85 from your station periodically. I was using a station that tested E70 last year. I stopped using ethanol in the winter. I go back to the same station which is now a Sunoco and the ethanol is testing in the low 50s! I then found a station that tested E80. The difference in timing I was able to run cleanly between the two 3 gal blends was at *least* 3 degrees of timing across the board.I've been filling up on 3 gals of ethanol lately and have been seeing much less knock retard, although it's been a bit cooler the last few days too. The station doesn't have the exact ethanol %, it just says 53-83% ethanol so in the app I use I just put 83% ethanol with a target blend of e30 and hope for somewhere between e20-e30. Until I get a testing kit and gas can is there an easier/better way I haven't thought of?
Have you ever talked to Cobb because now that you mention it they said when they realeased Cobb AP for WM MK7.5 GTI Simos 18.10 that it does not support OPF cars.So we called time on my 2019 Big Turbo E tune today, The E30 tune was scraped due to the Struggles with 99Ron.

First off I wanted to talk about the customer service I Received through out the process.
Over all I have no real complaints, the revisions came thick and fast, sometimes even multiples in the same day and on occasion a surprise weekend update.
He was also still pushing updates all the way up to 34 revisions
so unfortunately we had lots of problems, My car is a new 2019 Simos 18.10 mk 7.5.
to start with the car was very fast but would loose all power after 5800 RPM, despite this shifting at 5500-5700 the car yielded 8.0 flat 100-200
after around 15 revisions we overcame this issue and things started to look up, unfortunately the car started to develop other issues and started to knock a fair bit. we wounded it back a lot and started to walk it up before it started to knock again.
we then discovered another issue, the car runs target Ign timing in what ever you plant the throttle in, however as you shift up it is pinned at 1.12 degrees, again the car continued to knock so we tried a few things and pulled more power out.
unfortunately after a 34 revisions we where unable to get the car to stop knocking, still seeing -4.5KR across most cylinders even with a max advance of 5 during WOT. we where also unable to get the car to recover Ign timing after a gear shift. Even when adding some canned Racefuel that I had left over from my race bike the knock remained.
we pulled plenty of power out but the car will not conform, we are now down to 10.5 second 100-200
overall im pretty disappointed with how the tune turned out especially considering it is now slower than is38 cars and even so still has a lot of problems. I don't blame Alex for this, and in hind site I should have had it done locally on a Dyno since it is a new Ecu with a complex setup.
The car will be booked in with unicorn motorsport who claims to be able to tune the new Ecus. hopefully this can shed some light on if the issue is the car, the map or the COBB Tuning suite.
This is no reflection on stratified abilities and from what others have said my car is. unique pain in the arse.
For anyone who cars here are the logs from the final Tune.
the official wordin non compatibility is based off the fact they dont currently have OTS maps for these cars, the do support the cars as they sell them direct to mountune uk who use them as their tuning device for GPF carsHave you ever talked to Cobb because now that you mention it they said when they realeased Cobb AP for WM MK7.5 GTI Simos 18.10 that it does not support OPF cars.
WHAT IS GPF?
The most recent world market GTIs potentially include some additional emissions-related components. It’s important to identify whether or not your GTI has those extra parts because the Accessport is currently only compatible with the Non-GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter) cars. Here are some tips to identify what you own in case you are not sure.
At face value, a GPF and Non-GPF car appear the same from the outside and mostly are the same…you also can’t ID them based on the VIN or any kind of marking. The easiest way to tell is to take a peek under the hood and at the exhaust.
