Similar setup with aftermarket intake manifold and E85

E85 is next for me. How much WHP do you think E85 got you? 10....20WHP?

It was 2 different motors, but this motor was better then the old motor in nearly every way and made 6hp more and the old motor was on race gas.

Not to mention all the E85 headaches you gain. (where to buy the stuff, is it really E85, now you gotta test it. Or buy the flex fuel sensor. My Haltech isn't setup for one so I have to buy the sensor, an I/O expander and a Can Hub box. $1000ish later and the thing still cant test for Moisture in the fuel).

I had a budget in mind when we put this together and more importantly I wanted the swap to look clean... If i didn't care about AC and Power Steering I very easily could've gained even more power.

I have a pretty simple build. It has a head built by Portflow which has full Supertech valvetrain as well as Porting but other than that it has bolt ons. Stage 2 Cams.

-Drop In Pistons.
-Stock Air Box
-F Series Intake Manifold
-91 Octane

I very well could just remove AC, Upgrade the Intake Manifold and run a less restrictive intake and probably gain 7-10hp with proper tuning. Im leaving power on the table however with my current tune as I believe the car is capable of a little bit more... Im doing homework currently and going to have the car re-tuned at some point.

Well said, It's not worth the extra headache.

he made 6hp over his old motor which was on race gas. He probably made 15-25 over a pump gas setup. E85 or bust! 280hp n/a is nuts

Correct but the old motor was 1.7pts less compression so I don't think the E85 gains were much.
