A friend of mine is considering running E85 on his BBC with a 8-71 and 2 dominators but was wondering if he had a enough fuel pump to do so. It's a SX Performance, part# 18203, rated at 120 gph @ 10 psi, 12 vdc. I think the pump is marginal on gas alone much less E85.

The motor probably makes about 775 hp judging by the weight and et (9.80 @ 3500#) and is currently running on pump gas.

What are your opinions on this pump set up?

Ya I agree... That pump is equivalent to a Holley blue, as far as GPH. After talking to him, he told me that he has a Mallory 250 that he could install. Still not enough pump for E85? I'll have to do the math too see if it's close.
