E85 and High Compression/Boosted Engines
I was running a fairly radical engine on the street, and decided to up the power more. With E85 being reasonable available here now, I redid my fuel system to supply the needed 30-35% more fuel at WOT, and added a very high output Vortech YSi supercharger. What a BLAST, the car screams now making 825 RWHP at only 15 psi of boost.
This Fall I upped the boost to 20 psi, and the car was just barley drivable with Drag Radials on it. The one down side, was I did not re-calculate the fuel pump needs for the added boost, and almost did some serious damage to the engine. I lucked out and only lifted the heads, and blew the gaskets.
The good thing is, after 3 years of use, the engine looks like it was just put together. This is with only wiping it down with some WD40.
