Nice all business! What slick setup are you running?

Why lower compression when running e85?

thanks, the slicks are m/t 28x10.5x15 rear and m&h 185/55r17 fronts

im really new to these engines as i came out of the honda scene, until how lbs on the stock hg is consider pushing it??

id figure jus switching to the tt hg jus to be on the safer side, but if the stock hg can take 30-38 lbs with no problem then i can jus use what i got

Nice!

Stock headgasket will be fine wirh the proper fuel e85 or race gas.

You will run out of fuel around 26/27 psi with the 1000cc.

Do u plan on running a ffim? Because that exhaust manifold with the Turbo you are running will not clear the stock ge throttle body.

The turbo compressor housing will not clear the #1runner on that exhaust manifold it will need some modification.
