Hate to bump this thread, but how lofty of a goal would 350hp be on E85? I've been looking at building a 2000 hatch and replacing the Zetec with the Duratec. I know it would be much easier making 350 out of the Duratec and it would be much more streetable. The only thing that I'm concerned about is that if I plan on making that much power, I'll probably be giving up throttle response with a huge turbo and I want to keep a decent handling balance so I don't want to go overboard on power.
