    Will the walboro support 17psi, 9200 and e85?

    it's probably on the edge but does anyone know the limits of the 255?

    100LL is way cheaper than VP but e85 is extremely appealing to me at this point

    Yes I finally got off my lazy ass and am starting to work on it again

    I can only tell you a walbro 255hp in my car was enough fuel for a GT37r @21 psi pump gas around 500whp.

    hmmm Guess I can try the ol "run it into boost every 1K then check the logs" deal then add timing if it looks good.

    that's usually my style. Gives me an excuse to upgrade things I'm on the fence about.

    see post #9 here for fuel pump amperage and fuel flow comparison ( Walbro and Aeromotive and others).

    you will need about 1/3 more fuel at wot
    so 400hp e-85 will need the fuel of a 500hp motor
    at low/no boost gas is about 10% different than e-85
    get a fuel tester because you never know what % it really is
    like this one http://www.marinepartssource.com/new...0Fuel%20Tester

    this is what people don't talk about and let you find out the hard way. e-85 like any other alcohol based fuel acts like a sponge absorbing water from the air. if the fuel sits for prolonged time it will destroy your fuel sock and start to rust. that's why they make e-85 compatible fuel pumps and ss fuel injectors. e-85 is not a problem if it is used up and not let sit longer than a week in your tank. maintenance is the key and keeping things lubricated like the fuel system and injectors. just something to think about before you jump on the bandwagon.
