my buddy and i have been playing around with e 85 for the past few years well ever sice it showed up at the pump we have really good luck with it on 10.5:1 but i was thinking about stepping it up to 11.5:1 or some where right in there should play some fun in a 400 i think

the one thing i dont like about is you need very big jets and big carb seem like i go threw a accel pump on my holly dp every 2 year any idea on one that would not get eatin up by the ethanol
