Heck yeah!! Are you running a Split Second controller?
A split controller and ethnol % gauge will come with the kit And then after I get everything installed and wired, I'll do a remote tune for E85.
PS: Also planning on transmission tune

How much of a drop did you get on those SP086s? Are they too soft to drive on normally (like a daily driver)?
1 1/4" in the front and a 1/2" in the rear. With the springs and drag tires, it feels a bit squirrely at highway speeds.

Electrical parts for E85 kit have arrived! Not as complicated as I thought, Jessie at EMS sent me easy to follow instructions, plus, if I have any problems he's easy to reach!

All I really accomplished, during the off season, was changing my Intercooler, charge pipes and rear springs. Right now, I'm using Cobb's 93 octane stage 3 OTS tune with a tank of mixed fuel (75% 93 octane and 25% E85) similar to what I ran last year. Hopefully, I can get to the track early enough to test and set a baseline with last years setup, and then make another run using a map from my Tuner.

Is running e85 without a tune like that safe? What are the benefits?

Not safe at all... But, it puts me into the mid 12s. On straight 93 octane, my personal best is 13.01 and on a mix of 91 pump gas and E85, also from the pump, my personal best is 12.61 (and that was with an undersized aftermarket Intercooler). This time, I'll be mixing X85 from VP racing fuel and 93 octane pump gas. This event will be about collecting data and championship points (plus bringing it all home in one piece!).

Car Motor vehicle Hood Vehicle Automotive design

Had a blast at the track! Even though I officially broke (tore the exhaust off... again). I was able to make a total of 8 runs, while dailing in the tuning, with the help of Jessie @ EMS and Ryan @ PD! And I still collected minium championship points by rolling the beams at eliminations, and qualify for end of season bonus points.
Back at the shop now, doing an oil clean up on the boost system, rebuilding my PCV system with parts from UPR Products. And upgrading my Wastegate and BOV with TurboSmart parts, purchased from EMS. Next step, additional tuning from PD!!
