I just upgraded to the ZL1 pump with ADM controller but it sounds like I'll need a different pump and possibly injectors? Not sure that it's worth it for me, but I was curious to see what you've seen for power gains? Is it worth it?
If you have E-85 in a huge radius around you then it is a Very good Option for Forced inductions because OCTANE Is ALWAYS The limiter on Power on any combo.

You will need LPE twin pumps and ID-850 injectors and a New tune.

I have Remote tuned many E-85 Cars with FI.

They Run Really Well and we can make a lot more power with more boost than we can run on 93.

They are 96 lb per hour at 4 bar so they are good for 1200 Crank on pump gas or about 900 crank on E-85

Methanol (the kind that's poisonous) = corrosive, and requires the mixture to be FAR richer than ethanol (and gasoline). Plus, it requires the car to be thoroughly warmed up in order to run. I have run meth injection in the past, but I'm purely talking about using methanol as a fuel here.

Ethanol (the kind we drink) = mildly corrosive and does not play well with "old" rubber (not sure which decade they changed over to the tougher kind). They add gasoline to de-nature it (to keep crazy people from drinking from the gas pumps!) and add even more gas in the winter to help cold starts.
