The funny thing is that ethanol can make some serious power. I get Car Craft magazine and they were doing horsepower adders for E85. They had a blown SBC and were making close to 1000hp because E85 runs so cool that it isn't prone to predetonation and spark knock. They doubled the jet size to do it, though.
Buddy of mine is big into dirt track racing, they've got a 400 chevy running pure alcohol and he said temps rarely get over 180. He never told me EGT's but I would imagine they're pretty low. Pretty radical setup as far as the carb goes on it though. Anybody ever tried to tune a trail sled to run E85?
