The new motor will be a 2JZGE from an IS300, and for the transmission, we were thinking about putting in a W55 or a CD009, not 100% sure yet, but should come to a decision very soon.

Well that doesnít count lol Still at the first AT to fail on its own. All hail the AT

It felt like my ECU was butt hurt for the entire duration of the tank.
It revs noticeably smoother on 94. I get why everyone runs E85 where only 91 is available.

We have 93 where I live and E85 is still a significant jump from there.

Isn't E85 over 100 octane? Like 105 or something like that.

In the US, the actual percentage of ethanol varies, so octane would also. But, yeah it has a higher octane than premium.

Quoted from wiki...
"In the United States, the exact ratio of fuel ethanol to hydrocarbon may vary according to ASTM 5798 that specifies the allowable ethanol content in E85 as ranging from 51% to 83%"


Examples of octane mis-citation can be found at the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association titled "E85 Facts"[4] which cites a range of 100-105, and a document at the Texas State Energy Conservation Office titled "Ethanol",[5] which cites a 113 rating.

51-83% content sounds like a pretty big allowable margin.

I'd like to try an OFT E85 tune to see the difference. It would be perfect for whenever I take the car to the track.
We have literally one pump locally, about 45 minutes out at FT86motorsports.
Or I can buy 1000 liters in bulk.

It's pretty dangerous without flex fuel. And it doesn't store well because it attracts water. And then even if you can keep it water tight, it'll still go bad if you can't use it within a few months

I had some new tires, BFGoodrich G-Force Comp 2 A/S, installed at Discount Tire's store. I purchased them online and had them shipped to the store, ~8 miles from me. https://www.discounttire.com/buy-tir...-2-a-s/p/29878 They matched Tire Rack's $118.99 price and subtracted the $70. rebate. Their b&m stores and their online store are different entities so no sales tax and free shipping.
Getting them installed on Labor Day weekend was a mistake. I had to wait 1 1/2 hours, but they did a good job, no scratched wheels, $84. for installation.
So far I like them, a lot quieter then the Bridgestone Turanza EL400s that came with the car. We will see how they are on wet pavement.

Not today, but rather for most of this week, put 2000 miles on it in 3 days. Very quickly approaching 3000 miles on oil that's barely a week old. 😏
