There's gotta be some sort of conversion kit. You can't just dump e85 in your tank and drive off into the sunset.

You would need more injector for that turbo/cams, then tuning for E85 and that's all.

And yes, assuming you have the capability to flow enough fuel (pump and injector upgrades), then you can almost just dump in E85 and go. The only issue I know of on the Evos is with the short fuel lines in the Evo X's fuel pump assembly. They need to be replaced with standard fuel line.

You also need to use a stock fuel sock on the fuel pump. The sock that comes with the Walboro install kit (soft and fiberous) likes to break down. The stock sock (more of a synthetic mesh) does not.

Search and you will find all your answers. You will need a bigger fuel pump, most likely a walbro, injectors AT LEAST 1000cc, a boost controller of some sort to adjust your boost. It is a good idea to put in some head studs also, while you have it ripped apart as good insurance.

There are a million threads on E-85, 98% of them have the mod list needed to switch. It varies, but you will need a larger pump, injectors at least to swap.

yes you can
all you would need is a tune for the E85
of course you need the supporting mods for the motor( big injectors, double pumper, fuel rail, ect.)

its not like you have to change anything to make it e85 compatable. anything that can handle pump gas can handle e85
