Building a SBC Alcohol Motor

I have a 400 SBC that I would like to build for alcohol. My question is what is so different from an alcohol motor opposed to a gas motor? I have a friend that runs a mopar (360ci I think) on alky and is second in the points standings at the track and he says that the carb is the biggest thing that you have to change. I want mine to hold up and I am looking for directions. Any help would be appreciated.
