this is exactly what I was told by Kirk. He also said it will also blow out any condensation.

Demons have a interchiller and I haven't heard any starting problems with those vehicles.

I don’t think the demon’s is always “on” like with the interchiller.

I have the same issue with my TH E85 and a chiller. I would take up to 5 tries to get it to start some times. Had it re-tuned and my tuner threw more startup air at it which helped a ton. Still stumbles at startup but better, at least it starts. If anyone finds any solution Id be interested!! I also have the chiller drag pack.

Do you have the ability to read the tune file and send it could have something to do with startup ignition timing. I was just going over a Trackhawk tune file vs a demon file and there’s a bit more timing added in the startup tables for alcohol. In HP tuners also check out the minimum spark tables Spark min vs time. Or if you like just let me know I’ll send you the two factory demon tune files I have one is for the car and the other is for the crate motor.

Seems like the common factors are E85 and an interchiller. I’ve been running E85 for a few months with no issue but I haven’t installed my interchiller yet. I believe there is speculation that shutting off the engine with the SC IC fluid cold, that condensation is forming somewhere and this is what’s causing it to take the extra time to get started. The E85 may or may not be a contributor and it could just be that people that invested in the interchiller are all modified.
If someone could try the method suggested and report back, that would be awesome. I live in a pretty humid part of the country so I’m thinking that I’d be having the same issue when I put my interchiller in.

I think you have something there. I have been driving the last couple of days with the AC off and the issue has gonna away. My drive is pretty short but I'm gonna try running the AC and turning it off a min or two before I get home like you suggest and will let you know. Also note I have the drag pack option installed.

The drag pac is just the solenoid that turns off the cabin portion and forces all the refrigerant through the interchiller, right?
