Awesome.

Vortech superchargers are awesome, I know quite a few people who have them on Windsor and Modular powered Thunderbirds and Mustangs.

Welcome to CFN.

E85 has a higher energy density than gasoline, hence higher power output from the engine. I recall an article in 5.0 Mustang where they switched a 2004 Mach1 from gas to E85 and got a ~30hp and ~25tq improvement at the expense of about 2MPG...

Its worth it.

+30HP...+25FT LBs....yeah you can get that with a pulley a few tenths of an inch smaller too, and not drive up the price of corn while you're doing it. lol

Dude, there is no way in hell you are going to get 30hp out of an underdrive pulley.

If you ask me, he probably means a supercharger pulley to increase the pressure.

E85 will allow him to have more boost without detonation due to being a higher octane. I also believe E85 cools air better then gasoline, which could theoretically allow slightly more boost.

I want to do a supercharger project on my Impreza, however I really don't have the cash for it .

A turbo-swap may be cheaper in the end.
