E85 is like a drug for car guys... One u get a taste of it you'll never wanna run regular octane again :)

Do it and you'll never look back :)

I'm running the Cobb AP and it has base maps for E85 with 800cc injectors. I would get those if you plan on getting the cobb and using the stock turbo for some time. I would only buy larger injectors then that if you plan on upgrading the turbo in the near future. I have a custom tune for the E85 but having a base map from cobb allowed me to drive my car 1.5 hours to ivey after i installed all the parts, just saying.

Isnt E85 require fuel lines to be upgraded? Also, changing fuel filter every 3k or so?

From my understanding it is a quiet hassle to switch due to maintenance and upgrades it requires?
Mmmm good question? So what do you guys think that are running it how is the maintenance

I've been running it for about 4-5months now and i havent had any isues. All my tuner said was to run a 1/4 to 1/2 a tank of 91oct every 1000miles of e85 and I should be ok. And as of now everything seems ok :)

Im running stock fuel rail btw.
