    For those not living with realllly large stills in their back yard E85 is a blend of 85% ethanol and just 15% petroleum that is designed for use in flexible fuel cars. I being a hot rodder by nature like the idea of having a readly available source of fuel with 105 octane rating. :) I want to play with this, I figure I need to replace the injectors with one's that flow about 40% more than stock to keep the car from going lean due to the reduced BTU's of ethanol. This would give me the chance to use a smaller pully on the blower to make a weee bit more horse power. I intend to test this out on a cheaper toy first (my 87 shelby GLHS) this fall.

    the wait for the GT 500 is going to kill me..........lol

    If you're gonna play with that stuff - get yourself a wideband o2 sensor system like the one from Innovative to keep you from doing too much damage..
