    Default Question regarding E-85 fuel, with blower

    Am thinking about E-85 fuel, What I have is a 461 BBC, And got a real good deal on a 671 Blower, My question is which would be better to run carbs or injection. I do race, and also use it on the lakes and river.
    Thanks in advance.

    When you say you do some racing, what racing do you do? Is is a race boat that gets put on the lake, or lake boat that gets raced? If it is a race boat (where you are willing to sacrifice for all out performance) then go injected. If giving up a little HP to keep from having to maintain it sounds better then go carberated.

    Andy and I will both tell you to go injected. You have no idea how close I came to going EFI on my deal, still might.

    I ran a four port Hilborn injection on my lake boat for a couple of years and loved them. It gave a hole new meaning to throttle response ! The reason that I took them off was that you had to know how to start it and I couldn't let someone drive so I could ski. The way I had them set up I never primed the motor as it always fired up on the starter.

    Default 671 is small

    small blowers build tons of heat, 8-71 is small to me.

    all comes down to cubic $$
