E85

Just finished watching an Engine Masters episode on Motortrend TV and they experimented with boost and fuel on a supercharged big block chevy. Switching to e85 cooled the intake and made more power with less boost. Now scaling that down to a 2.0 I4 will be less advantageous but still has to have an effect. Who runs e85 and what is involved in swapping over? In addition they found little improvement on a natural aspirated engine.

1500hp was impressive. The low intake temperatures on E85 were good. We have ZZP 's E85 kit.
