E85 only. The metering is different for ethanol vs strait gas.
So this straight gas differs from another gas that is leading an alternative lifestyle? scratch 
Once you decide on a fuel and carb, it's always a good idea to just stick with it. Without a hydrometer, you will never know what you have exactly, and catastophic damage will happen.

Found out today the previous owner was running 100LL aviation gas with this engine. I started working on the car today and got the engine ready to come out except fuel lines, exhaust and engine mounts.

You may want to rethink the IRS if your planning to run slicks with this combo.

Thanks man, is it safe to reuse the stock bolts or get new ones?

Reuse them if they look good, and threads aren't messed up.

Ok so I bought a msd blaster 2 high vibration coil. Tomorrow I'm picking up a ford duraspark from auto zone. I also found a Mallory hyfire box, research says it should be just as good as the msd 6al but cheaper, is it?

By government standards, station pump E85 can be anywhere from 62% to 89% ethanol.
It will be different almost every time you go to a regular station pump; same as pump gasoline will be slightly different.

I think I'm going to do 93 octane fuel with about 5 gallons of avgas. I work in the airport, I just have to see if they would sell it to me if I show up with my car.

Show up with a gas can, they are not allowed to pump it into cars.
