I thought I would post about my 120y wagon,
We have owned this little car for 2.5 odd years and found over the last 12 months we haven't used it as much as we should,so the decision was made to sell it....Many months later after being low balled with prices,asking for payment plans,no shows, I thought F...it were keeping it.....So what was i going to do with it.. well Nothing its been a fun car lets just use it the way it is..I mean im in the middle of 351 turbo F100 build....I decided to tidy the shed,there was crap everywhere,then i found some steam pipe and bends,a turbo,fittings as such so a simple J pipe was welded a vw 1600 solex carb and other bits and bobs....
so in 11 days we have gone from std motor Na to running 98 and 15 pounds to E85 and 11 pounds on what was a stock motor,fuel sytem,and points and still is,

Just want to say thanks to all,
cars running on e85 (blow through carb) and by the seat of your pants dyno is making more power on 7 pounds than it was on 15 pounds running 98 but it does have a lot more timing in it
,The engine is running much cooler and even driving around the block on and off boost ,when inspecting the plug you can easly hold them in your hand,well worth the effort.
cheers anthony

Cheers guys,Im using M2 upper cylinder lubricant its made by VP racing fuels,it has stabilizers in it to counteract and buffer the change in p alkalintiy that occurs in E85 when it takes on moisture,also help protect rubbers....But yes will keep my eye on things...

No i wasn't changing anything I was going to run the E85 and rubber lubricant
its working fine with mmy friends E85 set up and yes i have asked him about E85 safe ratio, he said E85 has a rich power number and lean one BUT his numbers are different due to forged pistons,large cams (changes in dynamic pressure) ect So that why i was asking here thought there mimght have been a few in the same boat std motors,boost and E85
most tune the A/f on 98 a little fat at 12-12.5 so im going to Aim for .82 on E85 which is roughly around 12 on the petrol scale see what happens
Cheers for your help guys
