Wait.. you arent a rocket scientist like everyone else on here? haha my attempt at sarcasm..

Anyways, E85 is 85% ethanol, vs. regular gasoline which is now 10% ethanol. Summed up E85 gives you more horsepower when tuned. Since more of it is used in combustion, it has a better cooling affect in the combustion chamber, and allows for higher boost and ignition advance.

Bad part is ethanol only stays "good" for a few weeks, gives you worse gas mileage, and is corrosive to the fuel system in long term conditions. And you need massive injectors.

Either way, Im still looking forward to seeing more of it
