Full Bolt On ... it's basically your stage 4 with downpipes.
E85 is the fuel they're running, as opposed to regular "pump" fuel. It's got more octane, but uses more fuel. Upside is that it's cheaper and burns cooler allowing more ignition advance.
Cars can produce around 10% more or so with E85 at FBO levels.

My car in the States is FBO but I have held off going the E85 route as it has a tendency to dirty injectors and fuel filters unless you switch maps and run a couple of tanks of regular fuel through the system every few thousand miles.
Alot of guys are now starting to utilise the Flex Fuel kits to alleviate the above issues.

I read an fbo gtr on e85 ran 10.3 @ 137 mph :eek:
If it's true that is insanely fast for stock turbo's there's no cheating the trap speed must be making serious power for 137 mph

When I spoke to Ryan about e50 mix that mine runs he managed to extract an additional 120hp with an additional 0.2 bar of boost and still keep manifold temps way below the pump fuel map which runs 0.2 bar less than e50 map.

That was with a probe in each runner monitoring 6 manifold temps mapping.
