We are also building a second engine with higher compression pistons and tuning on E98 in the next few weeks. (We actually gained 70whp on E85 over C16 on the BW turbo last week).
We had some issues with the AP during our Texas Mile runs in October so we've also upgraded to a Cosworth standalone and just ordered our dogbox PPG gears for our transmission.
Sounds like a good plan. So you gained 70whp with a switch from C16 to E85? I'm a little confused. Is the cooling property of E85 really worth the loss of octane coming from C16??
