Yea, as long as you make use of the compression and ignition timing e85 can handle without developing PCP too early, its actually quite fuel efficient, I've been trying to find good reading information with limited time that I have these days.I was recently flown up to boston to tune a few cars.. E85 just requires a different target AFR and a better fuel system then regular pump gas does.. E85 allows for more timing and better overall power to a point.
Im a firm believer in" research is the difference between speculation and investment". This build will be for the accord and will be a weekend car.
I know the afr is different from gas, and that you need a good bit more flow for alcohol. People say 2x the fuel but its not that much more. I recently read about a guy making 170tq on a 1.6 at 2500 rpm with e85. This was done on a restrictive log style manifold.
I have 2 f22b1 engines now so I can build one and keep the accord running.
