Final
 
So after I spent a bit of time seeing how much timing you can get into a ZL1 ON E-85 as compared to a ZL1 ON 93 Octane I have come to realize that E-85 WORKS GREAT FOR THESE 1.9 LITER BLOWER CARS!

With the 2.38 pulley and the LSA Blower spinning 21,300 rpm at 6500 the boost with stock 4 catalytic converters,stock 2.5" exhaust,stock cam,ADM Ported Blower Snout,LS3 Throttlebody,ADM Street Intake makes an averge of 14.7 psi boost.

Peak Torque is at 14.93 psi at 3800 rpm
Peak Power is at 14.72 psi at 5900 rpm
Timing at Peak torque is 19
Timing at Peak Power is 27 :happyanim:

Here ya go:

Torque compared to stock:

I know I will get trolled for asking this, but how many mpg do you anticipate losing due to the E85 conversion? I only ask because I daily my Z, but am very interested in this route.

Drew, when my car was NA and with 3:70 rear gears I was geting 18 to 19 MPG on pump gas in combined city/freeway. The year I was on E85 I got 14 to 14.5 combined. This is on a 7L motor, not a 6.2. Bottom line you should expect close to 25 to 30% less mileage with E85. Puts a damper on taking road trips. Hope this helps answer some of what you are asking. :chevy: :chevy:

The package is still under development and testing

Sorry, ethanol is new to me, but what are the risks with running it? I know reduced mileage and need for upgrading injectors, but what's the risk to the LSA and fuel system? Will it eat up the gaskets or shorten the fuel pump life? What's all needed to upgrade to E85?

Again, sorry for the questions. I'm very interested in the potential of that octane level with this engine.

Great fuel pump,injectors,tune is all you need.Might as well add more boost just to take advantage.

It will not hurt anything in your car if the proper parts are purchased.

So no adverse effects have been seen in this car since it has been running E85 for a while now? I am planning my build to tune for E85 along with ID850 injectors, 2.5 upper, 8.6 lower, solid isolator, double bearing idler, CAI, & of course a Aeromotive A1000 Fuel Pump Kit. Just wanted to ask if you think that the aeromotive pump kit will be enough as it states that it supports 1000hp Forced induction? Just looking for some input as I am planning to get started within the next month or so.
