If I had a modded turbo car, I'd consider it. Seems with the propper tuning, injector sizing, etc you can make good gains.

Affirmative. Good power gains can be made running E85 under boost, but it's hard to properly take advantage of those gains in an NA car.

BTW if you want to see the coolest E85 car....IN THE WORLD, watch this video.

It's a stock block 1.8L Exige with upgraded internals, twin-charged (turbo & supercharged) running what's essentially E85 (although he's got separate tanks for alcohol and gasoline and can control the alcohol/gasoline ratio). The car is pushing 680hp.... out of 1.8L!
