E85 and boost question

I have been wanting to switch to e85 and found a station within a mile of me. I have been wondering if I just need a tune to run e85 or an entire new fuel system... Mods are... Paxton with stock pulley upgraded bov id1000's vortech bap jlt intake off road x pipe. Some info would be much appreciated!!

ID1000 and BAP I'm sure you'll be fine, but check with your tuner. AED or Lund both offer proven qualiity flexfuel and e85 tunes.

Yeah I have basically the same setup as you except not running e85. All you need is the injectors, bap and the tune and you'll be fine at a conservative level. If you ever wanna crank it up you'll just need a upgraded fuel pump I think, but upgrading the fuel system would be the best way to go, but that's if you wanna make over 700hp give or take a little.

I wouldn't be running ID1000's on E85. The internals of those injectors can handle them for awhile, but over time being the E85 gathers a lot of moisture they can corrode the internals. This later on causes issues. However with the 1300's they have internal components that are resistant to corrosion like this. Just a heads up.

First I've heard of this. Been running e85 w/ID 1000's for about 5 years now. So far so good.

What I've seen through my experience. I personally wouldn't chance it.

Maybe the drier air out on the west coast makes this a non issue there.
