2.500 journals are worth something. More journal overlap = stronger crank. You're certainly outside normal/safe usage, but a 2.200 journal with the same stroke has significantly less...

A gas carb can be converted, but with the prevalence of E85 specific carbs on the market today, there's really no good reason. Sell the gas carb, buy an E85 carb.

and?

In the same way that you can't say 93 octane gas is good for X compression ratio, you can't say E85 is good for 15:1 in all applications. Cam profile, manifolding, static compression, carb,...

I see you're local....I might be able to swing by this weekend with some Lunati rockers if you want to see how they work. Send me a PM with your address/phone and I'll see if I can make it work.
