Not to downplay your numbers, but 450 WHP & 500 WTQ running 100% E85 with Meth doesn't seem that impressive. Running just an E40 blend (stock turbos, NO meth) I was able to get 428 WHP/460 WTQ (so you're numbers seem within reach by just adding meth to my current setup). Maybe it's just me, but I'd expect a lot more gains with an additional 60% ethanol concentration to free up even more aggressive timing, in addition to the meth stacked on top (cooling your IATs).

***I understand that the stockers are probably you're biggest limiting factor at this point, but like I said, you're numbers are probably realistic on running straight C16
