    *jots stuff down* Seriously, I'm learning a lot here. It makes sense that running lean would make it difficult to expel heat from the cylinders, and that detonation can be caused by said cylinders being way too hot to begin with.

    Amen, I've learned significantly more about tuning (how, why, concerns, etc) in the 1/2 yr I've been here than I learned on E90Post during the year+ I spent there before the perma-ban

    Hmmm, maybe @dzenno@ProTUNING Freaks would be willing to explain some of the basics (or point links).

    Are you saying that regular fuel would be knocking long before melting pistons, but E85 does t give you that warning in advance, so you can reach much higher temperatures without knocking? Does this include the fact that E85 burns cooler? Don't take this as rhetorical. I really do not know, and getting more information on this has been a pain in the butt, because I have to sift through a cloud of blind E85 hatred to try to figure out which pieces of information are useful and informative.
    Yes e85 will burn cooler when compared to gas at the same boost/ power level. But as you start cranking the boost up to make more power which is possible with e85 you will start seeing higher temps.
