Default The E85 Army Thread

This is an idea from EVOM .
First, I just want to call out all the haters that flame me to hell when I wanted to run E85 like 3 years ago. I made my first request for help on how to run 100% E85 on 03-14-2007 .

E85 is proven it works on Subaru's as well as on EVOs ^ so E85 FTW . I want to make a compilation of cars with different setups that run 100% E85. This thread can be useful to other members that want to run E85, as a minimum I would you to include:

1) Your injectors size
2) Injector duty cycle (if you have it),
3) Elevation
4) Turbo

Hey guys I am going to try to update page one, but from now on I want you guys to give me your info in this format:

Considering I have purchased both Id1000 and FiveO's also have a set of the 1200 going into the car soon.

From what you said in the other thread is you were not comfortable with splicing 2 wires per injector. So instead of doing a lil research you canned the FiveO's and spent close to 200 bucks more, and prob a extra 50 for the plug and play connector, all because your afraid of a few wires. All you had to do is cut of the side side feed plug and wire on a topfeed one.

Now thats completely fine, BUT dont make it seem there was something wrong worth them.

Im sorry to come off rash...

Once again sorry to sound like a jerk, but you make it sound like the injectors are not good, but infact your not good with wiring something that is very basic in fact.

Which is ok but dont make it sound like the latter.
RECOMMEDED INJECTOR SIZE DEPENDING ON TURBO SIZE

This is only a recommendation to minimize cost and maximize benefits, taking in consideration different setups and geographic location.

44lb/min and under (20g or smaller) - 1200cc

44-52 lb/min (20g to gt30) - 1600cc

52+ lb lb/min - 1600 - 2000cc
SPARK PLUGS GAPS RECOMMENDED
