E85 conv

This is an excellent way to use a compression engine and get cheaper fuel, but you cannot achieve this by drilling jets, you need to get a conv kit that comes with different metering plates for your carb E85 requires a 20-30% volume increase over gas but if you are running a 14/1 383 and are stuck buying 114 oct race fuel like one of the cars we play with E85 will save tons of money 114 is over 11.00 a gallon and E85 is 3.00 so even when you factor a 20-30% increase your still ahead of the game the carb kit is about 140.00 and you will need an alch compatible fuel pump and reg there are several mech pumps for 100-140.00 or allstar sells their black pump for about the same im switching every comp engine we run over to E85 if it is higher than 11/1, they also run cooler and cleaner when you break them down in the winter there is a major difference and you can get E85 at almost any speedway,meijer,costco and several other gas stations due to all the new flex fuel cars, hope this helps with your thoughts, Mike
