    Yes, but the cost per mile is the same.. of course with the added power most people will be into the throttle even more. For me it just means I have to fill up more often (and the fuel system to support a GX35r on e85 didn't come cheap).

    Not really a conversion so to speak.. I just need A LOT of flow. It'll hurt to figure up the total cost.


    Walbro 400lph submerged pump (in tank)
    T1 Race Development surge tank (mounted in the trunk)
    Bosch 044 fuel pump, hard wired (submerged in surge tank)
    Five-O 1200cc Top Feed injectors
    Agency Power Top Feed Fuel Rail Kit
    Aeromotive A1000-6 Injected Bypass Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator
    Aeromotive fuel pressure gauge
    braided Teflon -6 fuel lines w/AN fittings (under the hood)
    GM Flex Fuel sensor
    Zeitronix ECA



    Over $1000 at least..

    If you're still stock turbo all you would need are larger injectors and a higher flowing fuel pump ($350-$400). My turbo is MUCH larger than stock.. it's set up to make three times as much power as the car did from the factory.

    If you wish that your warranty be completely untouchable, then leave the car stock and perform all regular maintenance with the dealership.

    The warranty doesn't get "voided" per se, but individual warranty claims can be denied if it is determined that something you did outside of stock caused the problem you are trying to get fixed.

    Yea.. my engine is completely built, along with just about every other part of the car. Like Will said, your warranty can never be "voided", but a dealership can use just about anything as an excuse to deny a warranty claim. It really just depends on the particular service department. Claims are approved or denied by SOA, but it's up to the service department manager what they choose to tell SOA about your claim.
