Well here is our latest E85 endeavor. It has a 570 ci. Chevy with 13 to 1 compression. The engine has some nice stuff, but is fairly standard as it is still using factory iron heads (that have been touched up we will say ). The motor made over 700HP @ 5400 RPM on the break in pulls, but unfortunately we were not able to finish the dyno session as we had some dyno issues. Due to time restraints we put it in the boat to test it before we delivered it to the owner. Unfortunately things did not go as planned...

I'm O.K. (or as O.K. as I was before I took it out).LOL I have a few Awesome bruises, and a few tender spots (like one of my ribs is a little sensitive) but was fine enough to spend the next hour and a half flipping the boat over and putting it on the trailer. Had the mag not been FULL of water we would have had it running within four hours of those pictures. After getting it dried out we had it fired and ready to roll the next morning. We were having a hard time finding anyone that wanted to drive it though. I can't imagine why.LOL
I wish we could have had more time to test it on the dyno as it felt like the motor was making some poop. Maybe I will have to post up the basic injection setup we have in it.
