I think we are glad the E85 is actually Ealmost90... my guess is we might want to blend in a little race gas to hit 85... and try to hold all we use about that number. 
Yes we discussed Methanol as well.... one step at a time.

A/F sensors do not like Alcohol (for long), although there are options,,

Plug reading lets you know if your tune contributed to your engine failed,,

I also started with the X 2.5 jetting plan, but ended up going way bigger, with ALL jets, including drilling the carb passage the pilot jet feeds thru.

I would prefer to make horsepower, rather than buy, or hya it, regardless of the difficulties involved , as it would then be MINE
