It's doable. You'll need a better fuel pump, bigger injectors, and a tune. To see any noticeable gains, you'll want more compression. You'll gain maybe 11% of your current horsepower. You'll burn about 20% more fuel as compared to gasoline. At 9.2:1 compression, I did notice a difference, but not much. Keep in mind, this is with two extra cylinders. lol Now that I have 11.2:1 compression, the difference between E85 and E10 is more pronounced, especially at lower RPM. It feels more torquey.
