Default Who's Running E85?

Any of you old timer's running E85 yet? I am waiting for my buddy to send me his datalogit and I am going to see how much I can squeeze out of tired 16g with E85 and 816cc injectors. Figure it's gotta be worth another 50whp if the turbo and intercooler can keep up

Not a pre-02, but I'm running E85 on my '06 STI. Tuning resulted in gaining about 20whp & 30 ft-lbs of torque over 91 pump on my STI's stock VF39 FWIW. I've been running it for about 6 months straight without any real issues (I'm also in Colorado, and ran it throughout the entire winter). Good luck!

Figure I would give an update. Installed the Carl Davey kit with modified sidefeeds and started tuning yesterday. I must say I am impressed with E85! The amount of timing I am running is absolutely ridiculous and the power is great. On a sad note the 16g is only able to muster out about a max 18lbs boost but it's good enough for now. I am pretty sure it's on the way to the dumpster. If I can ever get my finances sorted a fmic and bigger turbo is a must as the modified sidefeeds are only at 77% duty cycle with tons of room left. E85 for the win!

I heart E85. Car is currently down due to an over-rev/missed shift.
EJ20 with crappy Legacy RS HLA stub rocker heads, FXTMIC interwarmer and a TDO516G wheezing out 19 psi made 256 whp (1.15 CF@Super) on a Harvey tune. Was getting 16-17 mpg combined and 19-20 HWY mpg on Western E85.

New setup for E85 coming together...EJ257 bottom, Ported V4 EJ20K Heads, Ported EJ20G manifold, 9.5:1 CR, Ported TDO5-20G and an FMIC this time. Hopefully make an easy 300/300+ all the time on Super Rupair's DD.
