Your running a FAST with yours right? What are you keeping your AFRs just cruising around?I have mine set-up Maft Pro for 15.5 and could tell right away that I was burning way less fuel just wondering how lean I can go to be safe cruising around?just took a drive today
20.2mph on e-85 that included few WOT pulls:biggrin:
the key seems o be keeping afr around10-1 or a lil leaner at cruise
so far so good!
I do not know how long it will be before they are available but Delphi has been testing heated fuel injectors. In Brazil where Hydrous E100 (no gas but 5% water) is used I suspect these will take off quickly. Here in the USA where we have anhydrous (dry) ethanol mixed with up to 30% gas for cold start the perceived need is less and govt inhibits fast adaptation. That said however- there may be movement to adapt these to improve cold start/ warm-up period emissions by reducing overfueling and ignitability. Fuel rail electric heaters are another way to skin this cat but need longer on-time pre-start (injector heaters are only approx 1-2 sec).
It would have to. It is 35% oxygen by weight. Even if it didn't,It's awesome the way the turbo spools. Oxygen bearing fuels such as ethanol,methanol,nitro methane,and Q-16 always produce more power than non-oxygenated gasoline.if you do the proper mods to the fuel system does e85 produce more HP and TORQUE than 94 and alky on a 600 hp plus motor
I don't have any specific HP/dyno numbers but I can tell you that there's 1 HA car that's still a HA and it's running E-85. So far her (yes it's a lady) has gone into the 10's and no intercooler has ever been used on it. Turbo6x2 is her board name and her name is Jamie.E85= Performance….How much? I have read several threads about the performance gains but no numbers. Does anyone have dyno results before and after?
