I ran mine last saturday  95° and never turn the fan on  and it never got over 180 an that was at the end of the run.When I was running gas it would be hitting the 210 mark before I would get back to the trailer. This south georgia heat is heck on the driver in the staging lanes but the truck dont mind it running cool on alky.

How about using E85 in lieu of the straight alky.  Does it give the same benefits as alky or is it a bigger pain to convert over?  I see E85 around for less than $3.50/gallon so I was just curious.

Problem I found with e85 is finding a consistant batch.e85 varies to much.Alchol is more consistant.I did know some farmers that made there own e85 and they did pretty good.Thats because they could control consistancy.

on injection the motor is always to the fat side,so you have less gas enrichment to contend with when the nos comes in.You run a bigger nos pill.I ran a 10  jet seperation.Retarded the timing 10 degrees and wow made ya snort and feel good.And yes with out the gas enrichment it won't make as much power it runs to cold.This made it way easy to tune,really forgiving.Till you find the sweet spot.
