Sorry I don't have any. Member transengineer(from this forum - works for the company that makes our trucks) told me that. He gave me a number, I think it was a 6% increase in torque output. Not sure if that's peak or max.

E85 can be great, but most vehicles aren't set up to use it to it's potential. Many race cars are using E85 with great success(with much different compression ratios and octane ratings than our vehicles). E85 has a different stoich A/F ratio as well. I'm not sure how much the stock computers in E85 capable vehicles compensate for all these factors, but I doubt they use the fuel to it's full potential. E85 has an octane rating of 105, typically. That allows higher compression, more ignition timing advance, etc. It's also cleaner, and cooler. When built and tuned for E85 you should be making more power and probably same or better mpg than equivalent with gasoline.
