Has anybody ran E85 in their Riv without tuning or modifying anything in the fuel system?

Not the safest route to do what you said. But the gains are insane for making that switch to e85 on a boosted car.

Did some more searching on the forum and found a thread about it. From what I've read online it is quite the switch like you said.

It's really personal preference. I personally have put 42# injectors in a 3.4 pulley and cold air intake regal gs and ran e85 on a canned tune. It wasn't tuned for e85. It was tuned for 93 wth factory injectors. I never blew that car up. Not saying it was safe. But it was a $400 car and I didn't give a shit lol. You really only need a pump, bigger injectors, tune and a Tahoe flex fuel filter and you're all set, it's totally worth it once you get more mods 😎

in my opinion an e85 setup is the best bang for your buck. worth every penny. it just matters about you. is filling up more often at limited gas stations worth the power gains? I live in Detroit where I can find e85 about every 5-10 miles for $2 a gallon. I also don't drive very far or often so the mileage thing doesn't bother me.
