    Not sure about fuel system mods... but the tune will need a re-do. Stoich for E85 is a lot lower than gasoline. You'll also be burning about 15-20% more fuel to make the same power as on gasoline if I recall correctly.

    with modification it would be pretty nice...ethanol will basically give you a pretty high octane rating which will allow you to push the envelope more

    This spring there was a guy talking about his E85 conversion. I would try a search and find that thread.
