E85 tuned H23a

So I'm in the process of doing the granddaddy h23a swap in my 2000 SH (SH to base conversion ftw)

I'm keeping the motor all stock, just have bolt ons that are going onto it. My only question is this: Will e85 be worth it? I know it will eat more fuel, and I know what components I need to buy to run it. I just want to know if anyone has done this on a stock h23a and seen much better results over 93.

Any help will be appreciated

Re: E85 tuned H23a

When properly tuned you will see a noticable gain. You will need hondata or something similar and you should have multiple tunes, one for e85 and another for 93, I dont know about you but I dont know any gas stations where I live that sell e85

Re: E85 tuned H23a

I will be properly tuned with an aem 320 e85 friendly fuel pump, 780cc fic injectors, and a proper fuel rail and fpr.

The car will be running on a chipped p28 tuned on Neptune by Turbogixxer or Derf tuning.

My daily commute does have 1 or 2 gas stations along the way that sell e85.

My only real concern is the possibility of corrosion to my fuel tank and fuel lines using e85, and the fact it is my only car.

Re: E85 tuned H23a

I believe there are a certain type of hose to use in order to prevent the e85 from expanding or deteriorating the standard material

Re: E85 tuned H23a

hose, fuel pump, fuel filter.......... make sure all of these things are e85 compatible.

Re: E85 tuned H23a

i run e85 on my evo. you'll be fine with stock components as far as hoses. iv'e never seen anyone do e85 on a stock motor without forced induction however i wanted to do this myself when i had my lude. what i do know is you'll see best results with forced induction rather than being n/a. idk how much more it would gain if any gains do exist over 91/93.
