Some of you may remember Jason’s blue RS3 that ran 11.61@120mph, making it Australia’s quickest and fastest RS3 on stock turbo and pump fuel.  Following successful testing and development of our E85 custom tune with Greg’s RS3 on the dyno/racetrack, it didnt take long for Jason to run our E85 tune.
