    Thanks, I've got 5 seasons and hundreds of hours on those now. 7.25" long
    All the helpful internet advise I received about aluminum rods pointed to that they should have been sticking out the side of the block years ago.

    I would say that it worked great and there are no signs of wear showing anything beyond gasoline. I actually thought the top of the pistons would look cleaner but I run a rich mixture for 20# of turbo boost too. They looked the same as when I ran gasoline.

    Well as I recall I had my first beer at 16 yrs old and that would have been in 1971 or 1972 so I only have a mere 36 yrs of alcohol poisoning going. I wonder how many brain cells that equals ? no wonder I'm "stuck on stupid"
    Didn't like beer at all back then though.....I was more into "Annie Green Springs"

    An observation....
    When someone is a teenager or in their 20s they lie about how much they can drink.
    When someone is over 40 or 50 they lie about how little they drink.

    Ok stock injectors were 38lb/hr @45 psi. I cranked the pressure to 55 and they should flow 43lb/hr now at 80% duty cycle according to my math. That gives me optimum performance on 93 octane now.

    My pump has the headroom (@13.5 volts) to go to 60 psi at 60 gph at or even 70 psi at 55 GPH. Need to do some more math to see if I'm pushing my luck with the stock injectors.

    E85 flows more than gas. You might be able to get away with using to pump you have now. I've been running the stuff for a week now and loving it.

    Got my new Fuel Pump. Now that I have both volume and pressure, I need to find a set of bigger injectors to handle the volume. Stock Mercs are only 38 lb/hr.

    Gotta run more pressure as it is to get the fuel I need currently. According to my math there is no way the stockers will get the 30% more I need to run E85.

    I just bought a F.A.S.T. system that was off the spam page here and I'm going to switch to that as soon as I get the rest of the wiring harness done.

    I have been running a Haltech E6K EFI system for 6 seasons now.
    The Haltech has been a good unit.
    I wouldn't be switching were it not for the record deal on the FAST and it has more features than the Haltech.

    I'm going to sell my Haltech E6K with the wiring harness for $ 600.00
    I also have a tall deck manifold with injector bosses and fuel rails for $ 230.00
