60s are fine on e85, youll need a 340lph if you want to be able to support that e85. There are lots of cheap options. I run a cheap Kemso 340lph pump and just replaced it after 5 years use in E85. The pump is still working but I think its time since E85 is corrosive. I think i made 530Whp with my 60s and a 340lph before i went to 80s. Head gaskets usually last if the tune is good but who knows the condition.. There are a lot of variables. I would probably say head gaskets and bolts or studs at a minimum but just use cheap felpro 9333pt1 gaskets with copper spray and they will hold whatever you can make with a stock block. There are lots of guys using them for boosted application with success.. Ive never had one fail but my tune is always conservative.
Oh yea, if he doesnt have injectors, get 80s. They are almost the same price and will leave injector headroom. Poweraddersolutions.com is the only place I trust for authentic Siemens injectors.. dont get the knockoffs.. they are impossible to tune
