You will win with E85 for sure if you can drive, assuming it was an evo 8.

I've had my fair share of runs with the Evo 8 9 and 10 from Full bolt on stock turbo to FP Red Black and setups making 500-600WHP.

I specifically remember running an Evo 8, full bolt on, with cams and i outran him.

On the 40 roll he will get the jump, so you will be playing catch up. Dont be late on the 40 roll or it will take you till 120 to catch up.

After about 120 those cars on stock turbo just cant breathe. If he's lying about this turbo and any other part of his setup you may have a problem.

If its an Evo 9 the turbo is a bit better. This will make it a pretty close race. I wouldn't bet anything on it. One mess up at the roll being late and you will be playing catch up.

If the race is 40-140 you might edge him out if its an evo 9.

My setup at the time was 390-400WHP with methanol. All I had was an intake. No downpipes, No intercooler, stock exhaust.

The methanol helped me on the top end more then a pump gas car. I was probably running 18 PSI tapering to 15 by redline.

He showed you the dyno, was it a mustang dyno or dynojet?
