If its tuned well you should be all right but remember that these cars have glass pistons. A bad tank of gas could ruin you if your tune is aggressive. Buy it and build it.

Ask the seller what is all done to it and post it here, we cannot tell you if it will blow or not. Hopefully it is not the stock transmission. Ask where and who tuned it.

As long as its tuned correct you should be fine. What about E85?

I am running it and putting down more than that.
