First go, spankin' brand new 540 from Scott Shafiroff, New York. This was the first E85 motor they built - and what a beast! 709 brake HP, and torque to Boost. Hooked up to a Tremec TKO600 in my '70 Elkie SS, it will be quite fun. To say the least, he he..

E85 Ethanol Does not harm Non-FlexFueled Engines
This is a video of a 2000 Chevy Tahoe which was run almost exclusively on
E85 Ethanol for over 100,000 miles. The amazing thing is that this is NOT a
Flex Fuel vehicle-it was not Flex Fuel ready from the factory. They
probably used an E85 conversion kit, but do not mention this in the video.
The Tahoe's engine was taken apart and inspected. The results prove that
E85 will not harm a standard engine, fuel pump, fuel lines and other
components of the fuel system. The results showed that the engine was in
excellent condition. So we highly recommend that everyone use E85 however
we do not recommend running a standard vehicle without an E85 converter
kit. If you would like to learn more about an E85 converter kit for your
vehicle, please visit http://www.change2e85.com.
