Ok guy My wife read all this and wants to know if I got my distributor lock out and why not and why you guys think I should. So I had to explain what that meant and that I do not. and I not sure I agree with it. so Why would you want more timing at start up with e-85 than gas ?? I have 21 initial and 35 total all in at 1200 rpms

When I first converted mine I was setup with same timing curve you had. Ended up locking the distributor out to try it and made no difference. I was launching at 1800-2200 so I was full in after I torques up on the fb. You should be fine with that setup.

I dont understand why you want the timing locked out on E85 but not gas either? Since Jenny foot brakes the car make sure you have hollow squirter screws.

Jamie this is the time to buy - I saw E85 for $3.02 at Polaris today. I'm considering finding a drum to fill up because it was up to $3.50 this summer.

dont listen to what jets someone elses different carb has.
If it runs good leave it.
If you start to change air bleeds you will offset the whole fuel curve.

i have been running E85 now for three years now with no problems. i have a 3 circuit 1050 set up with the qwk fuel kit. i have went to 99 MJ and bumped up the timing 2 deg over my starting point in 2009. others i have converted also run with no problems. at MMW i ran a best of 9.89 with the trottle loose to run the 10.0 and john cope (CRT) ran a best of 9.94 and jerry hayes (MOPARPITTBULL) ran solid 9.80's with a smaller carb to slow it to the 10.0s. E85 ROCKS.....

Jamie, what was the ambient temp when you fired it up...
E-85 is REAL cold blooded... I wont even attempt it
if its 45* or lower(maybe closer to 50*) you have to
pump the hell out of it to get it to fire and keep
it lit till it gets some temp into the engine

Cold starting is my only complaint with E85. I think that you run the same M1 intake that I run and maybe that contributes to the cold weather start-up issue. Save your starter and go buy several cans of starting fluid. Keep them in the trailer and garage for those 1st starts of the day.

So it was lean.. hesitate.. ran hot.. so I jetted it up to 87-98.. and put .055 squirters in it and move the pump cams to #2 hole. still got some hesitation..so tomorrow I going to put brown cams on it and maybe bigger squirters. might jet the front up some more..But on the good side of it.It has been a while since I drove and I got in the gambler race and won it ! LOL

I've started my last Sunday temp. was between 40-45 in the morning u have to pump the h*ll out of it to get it to start and keep it running with the rpm up to get the heat in the motor.
