Your responsding to posts that where to other individuals comments and not yours, that i am not sure what they had to do with what we where originally discussing. So i can see how you’d think it was sporadic.I was about to start posting actual logs I've taken showing IPW DROPPING past peak power, but you are all over the place with your points and basing them on opinion instead of facts so we'll just agree to disagree. Good luck with your build.
You are posting in a forum my friend, even if you are discussing with me people are free to jump in and add their own input this isn't a one-way conversation.Your responsding to posts that where to other individuals comments and not yours, that i am not sure what they had to do with what we where originally discussing.

you have a log of injection duty cycle from 4k to redline? Showing duty cycle decreases from around 5,500 to redline?
Also logging boost and AFR to correlate.
Wasn’t my point.You are posting in a forum my friend, even if you are discussing with me people are free to jump in and add their own input this isn't a one-way conversation.
So my conclusion is if it is A. Then unless you want it fixed under warranty going Ethanol you are no worse off.Personally I'm leaning towards a combination of points A and D, more so A and I think the higher flow rates of fuels be they mixed or not
simply exasperates the issue.
Inifniti wouldn't put out a TSB unless there was a fair number of cases.
Do you mean you don’t know anyone who swapped HPFP using no added E% who has had a failure?To my knowledge there hasn't been a single person whose swapped fuel pumps and ran E content that hasn't had an injector failure.
FWIW I've been tuning other platforms for over a decade at higher power levels than were talking here so I'm no spring chicken either lol.
Every single person who has swapped the HPFP and used E has had a failure to my knowledge.Do you mean you don’t know anyone who swapped HPFP using no added E% who has had a failure?
or every single person who swaps fuel pumps and uses higher E% has had a failure?
you probably have more experience than me. but In all other platforms I’ve dealt with ethanol has always been the holy grail of fuels. As good or better than race gas only downside is fuel efficiency and often needing larger pump/injectors to compensate. No issues with corrosion though.
So if fuel rail seems to be a big contributor to the issue. Does anyone make or is anyone working on making an aftermarket fuel rail to resolve this?
Owners manual says 15% not 10%,This thread is about to become a trainwreck ... let's answer the question: maximum safe ethanol content: 10%. The owner's manual states this value and many fuel pumps across the United States have up to 10% ethanol mix on their 91 and 93 octanes.
If you upgrade the low pressure fuel pump, high pressure fuel pump, fuel injectors, and replace both fuel rails [with the newer build years], you may be safe to run up to E85; however, as with any flex fuel setup, you should cycle pure octane often.
If any single one of those components is not upgraded [replaced in the case of the fuel rails], ethanol mixes above 10% are not safe.
Same part number but new batches; Infiniti themselves state (ITB17-035) that the fuel rail must be replaced.Are you saying they revised the fuel rails in newer years to resolve the issue? is it a different part number?
Nope, nope, nope. I am checking out at this point; it is your car and your money, feel free to destroy it because you are not fucking listening or thinking.The pumps, hoses, injectors, seals etc.. are all ethanol compatible. The only potential issue is with the fuel rails.
When did i state anyone's intentions?You seem hell bent on inferring what everyone's intentions are from AMS to Infiniti themselves. It's your car and your $, have at it.
