Well it seems I jinxed myself with my above post because it turns out my car is not at all healthy!

It should be noted here that AFD (Advance Fuel Dynamics) is exactly the kind of company and shop I trust leaving my car with. After the first dyno run, Ryan called to ensure I wanted to go through with the install of the Flex-Fuel kit because of the low numbers. I appreciated him reaching out and giving me the decision - obviously my car isn't healthy. I went through with it anyway because some data is better than no data in terms of power gained through E85 on an NA M5.
E85 Runs: 303WHP/303WTQ.
I will reschedule a time to go back to AFD so I can get re-dyno'd once the car gets some much needed maintenance done. CPSx4, Spark Plugs, O2 sensors, fuel filter, and pretty much every other wear item that has anything to do with the motor. If that doesn't fix it, I am likely going to set the car on fire.
If you had any reservations about working with Advance Fuel Dynamics - I would work again with them in a heartbeat.
