Red face ....e85....

Well, I've been doing alot of searching on E85 setups. And Now I'm considering running it in my FD. I already know you need aprox 30% more fuel. But I'm not too good with math and was just wandering if there is a fuel calculater for E85 similar to this FC calculator.

I am aiming for 450hp to the wheels, or somewhere in that area. Right now my fuel setup consists of: 2) 850s 2) 1600s 1) Supra fuel pump (rewired) FPR

The rest of my setup consists of: 1/2 bridge cut by BDC, GT3574 .84 A/R from a-spec(will be upgrading to a 1.0 A/R) before I have it tuned. And a 3inch, DP,MP,CB.

I'm wandering if the increased fuel demand will raise my IDC past the safe limit before I reach my goal(at least430hp)

BTW I just found out there is an E85 station less than 10miles from my house so getting it won't be aproblem. (haven't checked the price yet though)

I recommend pump gas and separate methanol injection system; not full E85. IUt'll require a full re-design of the fuel system.
