    What are some times and quick setup run downs of the e85 powered v6 Buicks out there?

    I know of 2 that are in the 9's so far.

    Tom Robison
    Gabby Rojas

    Any others? I hope to be there in next couple weeks.

    Hot air (non intercooled) best to date is 10.48 @ 127.24 mph on a stock block, rods and crank. We have a lot of one of a kind mods designed by my husband on the motor.

    We got a couple of the later series of V6s, one doing 10.0@138 and the other doing 9.6@148. Its a top fuel. Will have a new twin turbo car out soon too.

    turbo6x2... what are your intake temps with out the cooler? what turbo/boost/timing?

    cheers

    Dan.

    I ended up with a best of 10.20@137.75 at 3650lbs and a 67mm turbo.
    Took the engine apart to freshen it up for the bowling green race. No signs of a lifted head, valves, heads, pistons all look great. The rings not so much. Are people using any type of fuel additive? Not sure why the rings wore like they did. They were plasma moly rings I gapped myself. They do have a lot of passes on them from when the engine was in my old car. Also the local event where I hot lap the car probably doesn't help either.

    I don't know if it counts but I've been 8.3@167mph 1.24 60 ft (1/4 mile) and 5.1@137 mph 1.17 60 ft (1/8 mile). It's a SII tube chassis racecar, only thing is that it doesn't run quite on E85 but E100 ethanol with some oil added for lubrication.
