Planning to add exactly zero extra or experimental BS to this build and keep it as simple as possible. I don't have the patience anymore to work on pain in the ass to work on stuff. So we're talking basic FMIC, E85 plus water/meth, probably an electric cutout and just keep it relatively simple and easy to work on and drive the darn thing. Twincharged, of course but most likely with a simple 2.8 pulley M90, nothing special or that the E85 can't handle on it's own.

I do have an old ZZP drilled manifold laying around. 60s + 80s would do alright. No idea if it would burn up the injector drivers though.

Lol. I have in the past on other vehicles that had one bad driver. It's not a good long term solution.

I've got pucks for days. The rear mount is the real immediate problem though. It's completely collapsed. And it's probably literally the most difficult to change/frustrating mount design ever put in one of these cars. I'm pretty sure the back of the cradle needs to be dropped and the rack unbolted, etc.
