If running E85 I think you will have to run larger capacity fuel injectors to keep in the ranges of the Stock ECM.

Sorry, those were more just general tips.
If you have an NB and you start pinging on a hot day, pull the hood release and drive with it cracked.
How's that?
Driving with the hood cracked is a sure fire way to **** your windshield should the safety latch ever slip off the hood while you're driving down the road. Sounds like you could use a coolant system upgrade, like an aluminum radiator and a cooler running thermostat. Those will help bring down overall engine temps and possibly cure your pinging issues.

Has both and coolant reroute.
The issues were encountered on a canyon run on a 100 plus degree day with CA91.

Running with the hood cracked is only a short-term engine-safety measure. Definitely close it before doing freeway speed.

I eventually solved the issue by adjusting the hood to be level with the closed headlights.

OK, but fuel card versus RRFPR seems like the RRFPR that comes with the kit should be sufficient (with injectors as suggested) if you can verify stoich with a wideband.

Of course standalone is always better, but commifornia sucks on that front.
