the car on their website is andrew's (used to be abowers on here) car. he just got it dyno'd a week ago, and they've been working on his car for a while. he uses a lot of meth and imo i'd run meth over mixing ethanol, especially if you're going to tune for it and need a specific blend.

regarding the injectors, you'll need a pump to support the injectors properly. also, keep in mind that 30% more fuel will get you to the same power level. so if you max out stock injectors on 93, adding an injector that flows 30% more will get you the same power with e85. 370whp is about as much as anyone has made with just fuel (no meth) and on the edge of the injectors which i also believe is not a safe working space. your best bet is to keep the stock injectors and add an aux injector in your throttle body pipe or add meth.

that's just my recommendation. i know some people try to run ethanol blends without tuning and it runs ok. e30 can probably be run without tuning much, the car will just adjust. but to tune for it and get more power would be the best, and that's where i get nervous since you'd have to mix fuel every time you fill up to keep it safe.

Thanks for your input, will discuss with the tuner and see his preference. I ran WMI on my 96 single turbo supra, made good power. But prefer ethanol personally. However let's see what the tuner says. Also whatever is less hassle and cheaper.

Just thought I would add a comment about the LDK injectors.

One of my injectors seems to be stuck open so I am buying a new one, and the part number0 261 500 112 doesn't come up with many options online. That's because it's the Bosch part number. The OEM GM part number is 12636111 and will have a lot more results, primarily for us folks in the USA. Hope that helps somebody.

Thank you. Did you find a replacement one or do you still need to order one? I know Arnold at Pag Parts stocks these.

I hear ya. $280 shipped for 4 injectors isn't bad though if you can wait.
