I have not done it but you'll need someone who will tune the car.

No need for MSD coils unless you plan on loosing performance.

All you need is 47lb injectors and a tune.

I'm so Leary of E85
The LEO agency I worked for got free Ford test vehicles, all E85. At the time, their test track was in our county.
The vehicles, Taurus, Mustang V6s and Corwn Vics, (about 25 of them) were all junk after a few months. The E85 we were told by our own shop guys,ate up the components in contact with it. Ford did their tests on them, analyzed them and crushed them.
This was a few years ago but still. I hate even puting 10% ethanol in anything I own.
I think corn alcohol inside vehicles was a rushed move and not the greatest idea in the world. Seemed at the time to us driving them that Ford slapped some components together to meet government mandates and just put corn on the road.
That crap is for cows to eat.

Pros - everything.
Cons - worse gas mileage, more frequent oil changes

Depends on how you intend to use it. it's a bandaid.
It's a bad idea to tune it, where you rely on it.

The pumps are known for failing.
I ran it on my 03 cobra. Was not tuned where it would depend on it though.

For you Jake, it would help for heat soak tremendously.

I haven't really experienced any heat soak yet. I only do some stoplight pulls or on some "private" roads. I may consider it if I start tracking it though, which I don't think i will do that a lot because the track is a long way from my house.

Bad thing is where you tune it for the supposedly extra octane. Bc you will not know of the pump fails at WOT or not, untill it's to late.

So say it alows you to run alot of timing due to the added octane. Then it fails and your on 93 your in for a bad time.

The nozzles also like to clog.
