    Ive been buying a few little bits and pieces for it. I dont really have room to work on it and lost motorvation

    Once I clear some cars out of the way and my kids start sleeping better Ill get back into it.

    Trying to get the turdness going whenever I get a spare arvo. Its at my oldies so I have plenty of room to work on it.

The main thing Im thinking with e85 is it should be kinder to the motor. As im sure you know first hand, unopened hemis dont like too much boost. Hard to keep the headgaskets in them. From the reading ive done is roughly 10psi on petrol. I reckon I could get away with 15psi on corn juice.

    So yeah I havent done much with this. Come into some cash though so could probably buy the rest of the bits I need. Just hanging to get back into racing and buying tools, and getting sidetracked by the turdness and the wifes mini lol.
    Go the wreckers and find a cheap late model tank and mount it in the boot. Old school steel tanks and E85 aren't the best mix, they tend to rust heavily in the seams.

    E85 is going to kill your budget I reckon because you'll need a compatible fuel cell, pump and lines.

    But good to see it back on the job list.

    It's funny scrolling up the thread and seeing the orange VE wagon. Once I sell my old house that thing is getting a massive makeover
