On the stock motor I was running 25psi, 24 deg max timing, garret gr3076r. I made 478whp/508wtq dynojet and 441whp/491wtq mustang dyno. I left it as is with the built motor that is in there now because it has more than enough extra power with the cams and head work just from the butt dyno. I will dyno it when I get the cam gears in that I should have done in the first place.

That was still on stock stage 1 injectors. But I had a big meth nozzle. I was just seeing how far I could push the stock motor. Lol.

Yeah, the ST guys are getting into the E85 now. Maybe when they come up with a serious big turbo kit working on these cars, I might pick one up.

E85 sucks this is from the link one of the smart guys that carrys a tester , I have tested as low as 73% I have never tested where the e was above 85%and only 2 times that it was 85%

"I always carried my ethanol tester for fillups, as I saw between 85% and 92% ethanol content between pumps"

What do you think would of happen if this guy was tuned with higher timing and E85% then next fillup got the E73% B O O M !

E85 can change is E% as well as octane , it just isnt worth a blown engine
