Got the motor back from the dyno and had some good results. Cleaned up the fuel curve a ton & learned a little bit in the mean time. Took an intake manifold temperature reading with and with out the intercooler. At an idle which usually runs pretty hot on a blown deal do to lack of air & fuel the intake temp climed up to 180. When the intercooler was used it dropped it down to 120. Water temp was probably in the mid 70's. At 7000 rpm the intake temp dropped to 78 degrees. Pretty cool stuff. The tune up window was huge. I made 15 pill changes from rich to lean & it acted like gasoline in the 1-5 range. Blower temps after several pulls were cold to the touch. To run the same tune up on gas I would have to be burning C-16 at over $14 bucks a gallon. This stuff is somewhere around $3.25 a gallon and the tune up is using about 30% more. However with my new tune up it should help the milage a ton. It was pretty rich in the cruising range.
Also tested the E85 from the local pump & it was over 90%. When I tested the stuff in the boat that is almost 18 mo old it tested 80%. The holley blue fuel pump fired right up after sitting for the same amount of time. I run a touch of marvel in the mix which keeps the hoses, o rings etc from drying out. No gumming or corrosion was found in anything.
