Recommended tuner for 2008 F-150 FFV (E85)

Just got my 2008 F-150 5.4L FFV and would like a custom tune to run E85 more efficiently. I have read forums regarding Edge, Diablosport and Troyer. I would like some opinions or feedback regarding personal experience. In my experience with my Harley, it's nice to only have to buy one tuner.

I mainly would like to close the efficiency gap between gas and ethanol. Optimized performance, support of the local economy and running greener would be secondary benefits.
Please let me know.

Edge isn't a custom tuner. Off-the shelf Diablo's aren't either (you'd have to contact a Diablo dealer who can do CMR custom programming). Troyer can handle this, as can other competant SCT dealers.

Thanks for the reply!

I contacted Troyer, they do not provide custom tunes for E85. In fact, they do not recommend even utilizing it. Instead they recommend setting an SCT to 91 if one wants to use E85.

I contacted Diablosport and was referred to Andy Wick who founded runE85.com and dynotuneusa.com. He does custom tunes for the Predator model.

That's what I have come up with so far.
