Stock Vettes? Child's play. Mustangs? Even slower. Stolle will be in league with highly modified Cobras, ridonkulous Evos, etc. 600 is the big boys club. Stock cars need not apply.

It was about the same as last night. 34-35psi. Just got the clutch to hold good. He had leaked fluid on it last night.

~I could see any rubber seal that e85 comes in contact with eating away, which would in include gas lines, seals in the tank, seals in the pump, valve seals. If one of those fuel lines bust open over the down pipe...Fire.

~worst mpg's (20-30%)

ethanol does not harm seals. thats some billy bob myth made up on the internet. find me proof it eats seals. HARD EVIDENCE WITH PICTURES!!!!

as u can clearly see. it makes buttloads of power...try that power with something else you can swipe your card at the pump and get a carwash with over 8 gallons bought.


ps. cars NASTY!!!!!!!! cant wait to get home and let the car smoke a set of 16's i got at home. :)

When you say that does it have to be a focus or is that open to any cars..bc I have a few in mind, one of which is in my garage.

But seriously not bad, curious what its like driving something like that, and how when full boost hits.

The car is being tuned for e70 which is what we have at the pumps in Wisconsin right now and is the lowest grade ethanol we can get. Therefore there should be no problem running any E85 ever, wherever.
You sir have no idea what your talking about and I can tell you have done NO testing with E85 yet you want to come here beating on your chest like you know

Reading for thought
"The first thing we need to know is that E85, the most common of the ethanol fuel blends, is actually three fuel grades. Class 1 or "pure" E85 contains 80 to 84 percent ethanol, while the remainder of the blend is commercial-grade (around 85 pump octane) gasoline. Class 2 or E75 is 75 to 79 percent ethanol, while Class 3 or E70 is 70 to 74 percent ethanol. However, all three classes of fuel may be marketed as E85 at various times during the year. While it seems confusing, this is done mainly to offer better cold-starting performance-which is a problem with ethanol fuels. Since straight ethanol has a relatively low Reid vapor pressure (meaning it doesn't like to light off at low temperatures), greater percentages of gasoline are added to the blend for colder weather. So while E85 is often described as 105 pump octane, its actual rating can vary depending upon the seasonal blend. Naturally, higher gasoline content will tend to lower the pump octane from 105 for "pure" E85 to perhaps 100 for E75-though these figures are approximations, it is important to note. Since ethanol is relatively new on the consumer scene, it is just not as thoroughly documented or standardized as gasoline. This is why, in part, you may see E85 described as anywhere from 100 to 106 octane."

There is no octane police for e85 like for std fuels they all post 105 octane on the pumps and thats legal and the only fuel sold in the US that can say 105 on the pump but test 94-104 octane and the gas station not be in any trouble

I have seen e85 tested as low as 93 octane ,The research octane of ethanol is impressively high, which is a beautiful thing for high-compression and high-boost applications. However, its motor octane (the more extreme standard) is relatively low when compared to racing gasolines of similar (R+M)/2 octane. What this means is that E85 is highly resistant to knock but somewhat sensitive to preignition, comparatively speaking. (Knock and preignition are two different conditions: Knock is spontaneous combustion in the end gases before the flame-front can arrive, while preignition takes place before the timed ignition spark occurs, typically due to localized incandescence or hot spots in the combustion chamber.) to hot a spk plug (heat range) which the sp463 are thats why I made my own cold spk plugs for my high HP racing


Take the FACT that e85 is not regulated for octane and the FACT that it has a lower motor octane (either one will cause engine failure) these two togather could cause some serious issues
