Yeah me too! I ran e85 on my old talon with 1600cc injectors -8 a/n fuel line and 2 walbro 255lph pumps and never had any of the issues above. It was driven every other day and ran very hard! It allowed very high amounts of timing on my 2.4 stroker 4G63 motor and I could run very high (believe it was 35 psi) boost!

Also if e85 is such terrible and unreliable race gas then why motorsports like indy, nascar, wrc, etc run it? It has to be worth it for a daily driver!
