E85 max torque or detonation

Post by 9queSt » Sat Mar 02, 2013 7:56 pm

When tuning with e85 @ 30psi and about 625hp.

Tuning on a dyno, as timing is slowly increased, does max torque occur before of after detonation?

My experience with E85 in a high compression and boosted application was MBT occurred before detonation. The knock resistance of ethanol is incredible.
