    I already run great fuel for safety on my 91 octane whipple tune.MS109 unleaded & 92 octane 50/50 mix.

    Great fuels yes. But if you're trying to push more E85 is the way to go.
    Also that whipple tune is very conservative. Just switching tuners alone will help grab some more power out of it.

    By switching tunes what would be a conservative estimate on 1/4 mile times improvement?I have run in the 1.50 sixty foot time so my suspension and tires work oki.

    LPF went 10.1's @ over 138mph forever ago with a roush blower S550 on E85.
    I believe that was them hardly pushing the car as well.

    Agreed. A tune alone will have him trapping 136. Ad fuel and you'll probably trap 140ish.

    I am not going E85 because I think you can run fast with MS109(105 Octane)race gas.This is my fun street car that I take to the races a few times a year, not a car that has race brakes with the interior taken out.I would love to run with a few modified Dodge Hellcat that are running 10.40ET at my local track.Just want to spend my money on mods that really work.

    Well E85 is a lot cheaper than ms109 if it is readily available at pumps for you.

    So just switching tuners will help you a lot

    Like I posted above,changing my complete fuel system to run E85 would not make since for me because I only go to the track a few times a year.I actually think ID1050X injectors, pulley down and a tune would be my best plan forward.

    That would be a formidable car.
