Let me guess, you have a cobalt SS?
I don't own a Colbalt, but I know of one that makes some big power oh say it makes power well into the four digits.

Ah well there are several GM 4 banger turbo cars and trucks out there.

My favorite would be the GMC syclone/typhoon.

My 2010 Z06 is not stock BTW. Also I have something for your cute Civic to run on the 1320, it's GM powered with 4 cylinders and turbo.
interesting how you chose the bigger of the 2 'evils'

id have a go at you on a twisty course (if we ever get one here) in my volvo, as it has way better suspension than the civic i drive on the 1320.

/civ is pushing 20# boost on e85 and running high 10s on a base tune.

I like both imports and American. I drive a Subaru STi right now with a stage 1 93 map. I would never run an E85 tune for several reasons such as it is hard to find around here and it is basically crap. Any reputable tuner would tell you this.

You should bring your Volvo or civic to AutoX.

yeah, that 105 octane gas is crap for turbo cars

will agree with you that its hard to find around here. mech has a pump right next to his house out near 1604/bandera

Some Swedish-engineered cars with engine-management systems provide much better fuel economy on E85 than on gasoline; for example, the Saab Aero-X turbocharged concept car produces higher fuel economy and higher power on 100% ethanol (E100) than gasoline through using a higher-compression-ratio engine with advanced SAAB engine-control computers. Another car that has higher power on ethanol is the Koenigsegg CCXR, which on ethanol is the third-most powerful production car, with 1020 hp

would love to see your STI hit 1k+ hp on pump gas and not knock to hell and back

I am not aiming to hit 1K+. My car is a DD. Geez. I am not here to get in a pissing match with you.

It takes more than just E85 to hit those numbers. Internal engine modifications at that point but I am going to assume that you know this already. I rarely see DD cars pushing that much power and I know that your civic or Volvo are most likely not hitting these numbers even with 20 pounds of boost. Unless you provide a picture of a dyno run then I will believe you.

I must add that E85 is not always 100+. Numbers have been lower, sometimes higher.
