If you have been looking for a way to make more power with your WRX or STI and have e85 or flex fuel at your local gas station this is the update you’ve been waiting for.

Your engine will make 15-30% more power simply by switching to e85 or flex fuel compared to 91 octane pump gas. The higher octane rating for ethanol and E85 allows the engine to run more boost and more timing with increased reliability. This means more power and big smiles, there really isn’t anything like a turbo engine running on an Ethanol based fuel!

Those with built engines or upgraded turbos often use E85 and flex fuel to support 500+ HP which makes for one fast and fun STI
