converting to E85
In preparation for a large procharger, and since I'm having problems running 93 pump gas on the stroker, I'm converting over to E85.
So far the budget is looking to be right around $1200, not counting the tune (if I can't get it dialed in myself) and a few hours of my time.
This should fix the problem I'm having with the 426 squeezing the fuel too much and causing pre-detonation at lower rpms, and some people seem to think I'll get a little more power since I can ramp the timing up more with E85.
$619 Fore Fuel Hat with single 450 pump (expandable to duel pump later)
$219 BBK billet fuel rails
$185 Aeromotive pressure regulator
$50 Stainless braided fuel line
$75 -8 & -10 an fittings
$40 12 AWG wiring & relays
I'll be switching over to a 60 psi return style system using -8 line for the feed and return, the factory fuel regulator in the tank will be capped.
I have read that some people say the BBK rails are garbage, if that's the case I'll return them and go with a set from Arringtons, Speedlogix, or another vendor.
The 52# Deatschwerks injectors I originally installed when I built the 426 are large enough to handle the E85 NA up to 600hp, once I go forced induction I'll need to upsize to 112# injectors (and beefier valve springs).
Pics to follow once I get the parts together and start installation.
