93 & E85 mix
« on: October 02 2012, 12:33:11 PM »
Does 93 & some E85 mixed in help. I mean if someones car can run 16lbs on 93 and has no knock will some E85 mixed in allow you to run more boost? Just curious.

yes, but you may have to add some fuel in the chip depending upon how much you mix in

and make sure your injectors aren't already maxed out before adding too much corn likker

I think you kind of set up yourself for a guessing game of how much boost you can run safely. By that I mean when I had my GN tuned, I knew exactly how much boost I could run on 91, 100, and C16. Especially with E85 since you need to run more fuel, just seems like you would have to really over think it.

I am not going to do the mix, I have my ALKY kit. But I've read alot of people are mixing and was curious if it helps.

i am playing with approximately a 25% mix right now i just went for a 3/4 throttle blast at around 23 Psi and my Alky injection set to 3.5 i got a 10.5 O2 with a 0.0 KR reading on the Scanmaster.
My tune is ALL Fumessedcked up as i just started working on it again. Anyway it felt great, i hope as my tune gets less bad  :rofl: it should feel better. Just not sure if i will keep playing with the E85/93 mix OR just go straight to full E85. My ADD gets the best of me. :(  Not done but moving on to the next thing anyway.     
Most talk about having thick skin but thats just BS.
This damn attitude of "you didn't listen to us/me now you should burn in hell for it" really sucks.

It should be no problem. But E-85 is 15% gas and that doesn't vaporize/mix as good as meth or ethanol flowing in the dog house. I remember the days of fueling the 7th injector setup and the tuning/puddling issues with it.  A small mix should be great. More testing and results will only give the correct answer.

Remember on the Eth & Meth mixes: they don't "store" well. After you get your performance recipe figured out and put the car away for 2-3-4 months the damage is starting to happen. That white cakey, chalky, salty looking stuff is starting to make your life miserable. Find your favorite additive and use it.
