Now that's what I want to read. I've been running E in mine for a few weeks, and it seems to love it. Factory ECM made some slight tweaks to timing and AFRs and it seems to pull just a Tad bit harder. Its no ST but I feel the car still takes advantage of it.
E85 can be a beautiful thing. Your car has a MAF while ST is speed density tuned. Totally different beast...
2013 ST2 for DD
2004 Terminator for fun
