My E85 idea

Hey there, I am fairly new to this game and well I would like some opinions. I am going to E85 because I have alot of people suggest that I go to it, and besides the extra fuel consuption its over all better for your engines health.

So this is my 500hp Perposal now from what iv been reading I think im going to fall short but I might as well layout what I had planned.

2 X injector Dynamics ID2000s for the secondarys
2 x injector dynamics ID1000s for the primarys
2 x aeromotive 340lph Fuel pumps
2 x aeromotive 100 Micron, ORB-6 Red Fuel Filter
1 x aeromotive Pro-series EFI regulator

I plan on running 2 an-6 lines from the pumps into a single an-10 line

I will also be running meth injection
I will also be rocking a TD61 turbo

you can't run E85 and Meth on the same set up...

But you should be able to support over 500hp with that fuel set up!

Well, mainly because e85 is already like Meth... it is a high octane and will have the cooling effects on the motor the same like Meth does.

but I am not a 100% pro here so my explanation might not be exact. lol, I hope someone else can chime in on the full technical reason.

Yeah... I blew up an engine doing that (running meth and E85 at the same time)
It's just too much. The amount of liquid you are pouring in there will crack yer irons.
Go ID2000's on the primarys too. They are so good you can actually trim them down to idle just purrrrfect!
