Default 18g tomioka turbo

I have a tomioka 18g and I've tried looking it up but has anyone ran e85 on it? I wasn't sure since its a journal bearing turbo and when you run more boost through journals it will cause problems? If anyone had any input it would be appreciated

You can run e85 on any turbo since fuel doesn't go through your turbo

Not an issue if you run good oil, have good oil pressure, and your oil level is not low.

E85 has nearly nothing to do with what turbo you run.
