Default 2001 Miata on E85 with stock injectors?

2001 VVT engine, flat top im, skunk2 tb, megasquirt, stock everything else power related.

I didn't find much information, a few posts here and there, and a thread about NA miatas.

An online calculator says the stock 265cc injectors max out at 172 crank hp with E85, which would be about 145 whp. This calculator doesn't take into account WOT AFR's, so YMMV.

Well, what are your duty cycles like at WOT currently?

2001 injectors should be fine for a basic VVT build. Start adding goodies or internals and it might be different.

We will give it a shot on stock injectors and go from there.

I think Emilio or Sav (or both) reported doing this many times before on n/a cars, though I think they were talking about na's running returnless 60psi fuel system. This will probably work
