    1. You don't need 1000 CC injectors just to use E85

    2. Do the first thing and then use E85

    So what exactly do I need to use e85? I read it allows more boost without dentonation due to higher octane. I assumed the stock pump & injectors would have a tough time spraying 30% more fuel to compensate for the faster burn.

    if you really want to get some power out of your car at a reasonable price...

    downpipe, grimmspeed ebcs, walbro fuel pump, 750 or 850cc injectors, and e85 protune on accessport along with a 91 protune in case you can't find e85.

    but... if you're thinking you'll eventually end up with a bigger turbo... 1000's would be reasonable, because E85 on a 20g would require 1000cc's.

    I figured the 1000 would give me greater flexibility in case there is more to come. So back to my original question what would result in better gains...stage 2 pro tuned on 93 or pump, injectors and pro tuned on e85?

    I keep hearing gains from stage 1 to stage 2 are terrible on the butt dyno. Not only is the car a slug to me stock I felt nothing with cobb stage 1. I'm not sure how others feel they are thrown in their seat. Maybe it's because I'm 200lbs or used to fast cars not sure. I'm trying to get off the ground without breaking the bank as I still need winter tires soon.
