    Default Blown injected e85

    Who all is running a roots blown, hat injected, e85 setup? Even with years of popularity and success, I still can't find much info on blown injected mfi setups on e85. And yes, efi and turbos are better, but I love the old school blown injected deal

    It shouldn't be a problem.
    I run a roots with e85 and carbs, but it certainly shouldn't be any different than any other fuel, other than getting the ratio correct.
    Keep in mind that e85 is used in automobiles coming from Detroit, and other places that are just conventional cars.
    It looks like it would be easier than Methanol, other than many people have worked out the kinks to using that over the years.

    It's just another type of fuel.
    You'll like it.

    I'm swapping over from avgas to E85 , waiting on carbs to be converted. If it goes well on carbs ? I might sell them next year and go to a hat setup

    All I can tell you is if someone tries telling you that you need a 110 pump, don't take any other advice from them.

    This is on E85. Works just fine. Maxey and Gritch know a thing or two about the combo better than what these guys threw together. Also the guys with the Gn 369 (I think that is their number) run it very successfully.

    I dyno'd my 11:1 n/a 540 on e85 and picked up over 30hp and the torque curve was super flat. Good stuff

    My next build will be a blown injected, non-intercooled, iron headed, 500+ inch deal.
    I haven't decided on bore and stroke yet. I'm going to be using some Engine Quest iron heads and will choose the bottom end based on their flow capabilities. More than likely going with an 8-71. My goal is a large tuning window, a mild tune, low maintenance and longevity. I don't think 1,100 is unrealistic.

    8-71, no idea which intake, 80a pump, bug or bird, all new and flowed by GORR or Good Vibrations or ? New Dart block 4.500 bore, undecided on deck height. New blower crank from Callies, Lunati, Crower, or ? undecided on stroke. Good steel rods. Good blower pistons, undecided on compression.

    Thoughts?

    I should mention the application is for a jet, so I'm not in need of high rpm's

    I'm in the middle of a blown/carbureted 468 build right now. I would be interested in details on what it takes to make E85 work as well.
