    Convert her over to E 85. Makes more H P and costs less. Uses about 30% more but it's still cheaper. That's what I'm planning on doing to Wildfire if I don't sell her. Looking forward to seeing you and yours at Wamplers lake in May. Chet

    im wanting to go blown so im not going to spend any $ on this setup..these carbs wouldnt make good e85 carbs and the blown e85 carbs wont work on this setup..kinda in a hard spot..going to try to look at some homade boosters and running 93..not sure yet. we mixed it last yr and that seemed to work ok.. pull a bit of timing out of her and put more start retard as the dist we run is fixed. lol had all the nieghbors looking around yesterday!!!
