Running E85 IN A 15/1 468 CHEVY ??

I Have a 468 15 to 1 Big Block ,Dart heads,Aries Pistons,Eagle Rods and installing a Holley 1250 Ultra in a 69 chevelle, 400 turbo hydro Built.Being told I should use E85 Ethonal fuel for better performance ?? Should I go that direction or should I use VP OR TRICK FUEL ?? Sounds like a lot of work changing to E85 ?? Nobody Markets E85 for Racing !! Pulls up a RED FLAG to me. Thanks for any responce !! Ed

Great idea for a street driver where E85 is available on every other corner. If not, it's just a pain in the @@@. I'm helping to spec out a SBC 13.8:1 motor on another forum where E85 is readily available (South Dakota). Goin' nostalgia Gasser racin' and doin' a little street drivin' on Saturday nights.
