    It works well on gtr's so why not any car? It is equivalent to 103 octane so more timing less detonation and safer power .you do need much larger injectors and fuel pump though.

    Nobody has done it on the S65.

    It is possible though now at least as Gintani has a fuel system upgrade. I see no reason why they could not make an E85 upgrade for it.

    Would be the IDEAL fuel for this car in a boosted application.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    It certainly would be interesting. I'll look into it, E85 would be fun.

    Especially with boost.

    If the motor has stock compression with boost though, I would be a tad bit worried about hydrolock. The S65 has high compression and E85 requires more flow, so...

    Well, anyone getting a fuel system upgrade will likely be a built low compression motor.

    Yes true which is why only people with stock compression and boost should be somewhat aware of this possible problem. You shouldnt have to worry about it, as a matter of fact you should try to get your motor tuned on E85 for the win.

    I'll give it a shot but let's see how they do with pump + meth first.
