Holy bump, Batman!

I'm struggling to get clarity on this subject. My first thought was Toyota coils, but that seems to be easing out of fashion. I'm tempted by the VAG coils, as they seem...

Interesting thought, John. The car was previously running a more-or-less RS500-spec T3/T4 hybrid with the larger turbine housing, and that got us to 300 brake at 20psi (on 95 octane). The car felt...

Depends on how short he was of fuel before. My NA B200 jumped from a peak reading of circa 110bhp to 140bhp once the fuelling was adjusted to 12:1. I don't doubt there's an effect from the E85, but...

I'll admit I've more or less ignored E85, as it's not at all common here. How much extra timing can you typically run?
