Default Who is interested in upgraded turbos and fueling?

This question was asked in another post.
If you had an option to add upgraded turbo(s) or to run E85 (way more power) and needed upgraded fuel pump/injectors would you purchase them?

What? E85 doesn't give you more power... No matter how much you roll that turd in sugar, you still can't call it a donut.

But, I'd say turbos and run regular fuel, as always.

Seriously, E85 is a joke. You lose power and fuel economy. I've used it, I've towed with it, I've driven several tanks of it back to back, it's garbage.

Turbo vehicle + E85 + E85 tune = at least 50 WHP
E85 > Meth injection every time due to increased timing capability and additional cooling

More info and dyno results to prove it out:

If we wanted to run e85 now, do we just need bigger injector or both?

Also do we need better lines, etc.?? I'll vote then----I would love upgraded turbos, but it will be at least a year until I am ready to cross that bridge.

I know that the larger pumps will let me bump up some boost and also allow me to upgrade the wheels...once mtxpert educates me on what I else I would need to run e85, too...I'll place my vote.
