Ok I am ready to convert my 1250hp carb to E85...
Need a list of what to get and where to start with jet size's, T-slot size......etc
Mark I think I want to go with the BLP blocks as what I read about the QF blocks
there about the same as the red gas blocks and won't support my 540..

Check out the "my e85 1150" thread. Jmark has a bunch of updated configuration info at the end of the thread. I think he's now starting with the Blp alcohol 2 circuit blocks and using a stepped booster to enhance the signal and pull fuel. He worked with a regular booster first and needed to run very large jets.

I'm assuming he's busy prepping for the card challenge, but will check in at some point.

Thanks Mark, How is the summer/winter blend up there?? Have you checked the difference?

My racing season was full of mechanical issues this year, so the car never saw the track. I also decided to hold off running it on E85 until spring so I haven't checked recently. I'd imagine we've been at E70 since mid/late September because that's typically when the temps start dropping around western NY. I'm looking forward to April arriving VERY soon!
