I know it won't be e85 now but there should still be a bump in power

What do you think whp will be? ~285 now with vf52, maybe 315 or so?

Only tuning for e85 because I'm doing the tgv delete
You will love e85! Turned my car almost back to a stage 2 feel, but holy cow it packs A LOT more punch!

Also, e85 + 15 degrees F = So much fun!! (a little tough starting though, but it started )

Let us know what you think when done.

Tell me about it! I was originally hoping for over 300whp on 91. Didn't really understand "heartbreaker" until I went through it, but then I drove the car and all that went away I have a dyno plot of the stock tune vs. the e85 and it looks crazy because the stock lines are so close to the bottom of the graph. I kind of giggle when I look at the plot and think about driving it.
