Hey guys so I wanna go to e85
I have a 1993 turbo 5.0 h/c/I stock fuel lines, and tank. 40lb injectors, aeromotive reg, 190lb intank vortec trex inline pump. Pmas blowthrough, sct chipped. Car makes 587hp 620ft lbs. Running 15lbs of boost.

So what would I need to run e85?

First off that's great power for stock lines, and small injs/pump! Your ready for a fuel system at this point!

I'm new to E85, just got my car going on it but I do know it takes 30-40% more fuel. If I were you I would do a fuel system as you have exceeded what most can do on stock lines or what most feel is safe! I would do...
Lines
Rails
Larger injs (maybe 80's)
Larger Fuel pump

You really need a complete fuel system. If you want to keep the stock computer..then go with the biggest high Impedance injectors you can get...I think 80#. Then somethink like a A1000 or twin external bosch or walboro's with a 8an feed,6an return, and a set of fuel rails.

Definitely rw... can I get more power on 80's with 93 octane or with e85. It's for a dart 363 pt88 turbo car. Sorry if I'm hijacking this thread.

E85..and that question made me laugh haha! You need 160's for that setup, that car is gonna make crazy power.
Or run 80s and race gas

I started e85 on the bare essentials...I learned alot through trial and no errors. You will need bigger injectors atleast 120s, but 160s are better. Stock lines are good for about 590rwhp on gas, but u will need bigger lines and injectors for e85. I would run atleast -8 feed and -6 return. E85 needs more volume than gas. U also need a bigger fuel pump.

I think your going to need more than 80's even using gas with that combo.

I'm buiding a 338 with a BWS475 on E85...looking for 800+ at the tire. I'm going to be running 160# injectors,FAST xfi,weldon 2035 pump with a 10an feed/8an return. I also have a pt88 that I may switch to (depends on the rules for the series/class I'm running). Hope to make ~1100rwhp with the pt88.

80's should be just enough for 750rw. I know of several e85 twin screw cars making 700+rwhp and those cars will use more fuel than a turbo car.

I agree
363 with a pt88 is going to make big big power

Im curious as well. I assume you can still run 93 if needed to limp somewhere? There are only a handfull of stations that sell E85 in my State.

Why not do E85 and have a small 1 or 2 gallon tank you can switch to in case of emergency or when you go to store the car? There is a diagram on here or TTF how to plumb and set it up...

You would just have to have a 93 pump gas tune you could switch to for what ever efi your running. Don't think you can switch back and forth with a blowthrew carb.
I did just this with my old 347 i ran on e85 with a stock computer and sct chip. I just had one tune in the chip for pump 93 gas just in case.

I had to put some 91 in when I was tuned for e85....I never went into boost or the higher rpms.....granny shifted to the e85 station and filled up.

E85 is a dying fad. I did a bunch of work to my car so I could run it. Once I got the car all setup, all the pumps disappeared.
If its plentiful in your location and you want to try it, go for it, but it won't be there long...
