More I think about it, a wideband AFR gauge like UnBroken has would be a wise investment.

Would definitely need a fuel pump and injectors.

A P1X on a 18 GT went from 5xxwhp to 846whp on the same 10psi pulley. Pump to E85.

Iím sure the whipple will be similar.

Thanks! Still learning here....Does the AFR meter that UnBroken posted use the factory sensor via can/odb2 or an external sensor?

Is all of this not important because the way Whipple tune is written?

No clue on Unbrokens setup.

Not important due to Whipple's tune.

I’m running a stand alone wideband just for my own amusement. I don’t want a tuner or anything else sitting there just to watch a gauge. I also won’t be running Whipples tune.

Thanks again...Not sure why I'm worried about making more power...645WHP should be more than enough in a 4600 lb. standard cab pickup....lol

Matt is good and great to work with. He was the only one that would tune my Procharger tuner kit on my 2016 in October of 2016. No one wanted to take on the MAP setup with Forced Induction. Lund, VMP & etc. would not touch it.

e85 is a bit different than gasoline... it's got a higher cooling effect than gasoline so running lean on e85 has a larger window before it would cause an issue. detonation on e85 would likely be more common with boost number over 2 times that and/or a ton of timing (or maybe super high intake temps?).
