    We gave it a run on Methanol (yep, went straight past E85!) and even with the catalytic converters still in place made 900rwhp with the auto.

    The Aluminator block let go, so I have dropped another one (10:1 short) in for now and detuned back to 500rwhp with the intention to build another low-comp engine later..... will likely forgo the alloy config and opt for the reliability of a Boss50 setup.

    OP thank you for updating.

    Would a monoblade TB help power or not necessarily? I'm not sure how many CFM the twin 62 flows, and I presume throttle response would suffer?

    A twin blade set-up is preferred and flows better. It has something to do with the airflow characteristics. Awesome deal Daniel! That car makes awesome power for sure.

    Sick build. Love the fact that we have the same front brake setup and we are both Rays fans. Seeing this car makes us in the states hate that we can't get these cars.
