Default E-85 fuel

Running e-85 with a F1-R procharger on BBC does anyone have trouble with a lot of condensation coming out the exhaust pipes

Mine comes out the down pipe. I wouldn't worry about it. Run some seafoam additive and call it a day.

I get some condensation and a little puddle out of my downpipe after the initial cold start. It's done by the time I get onto the lanes.
