Default It Lives!!

Well, it's finally running. I posted this short video on Facebook, this is supposed to be viewable to anyone.

I took the video with my cell phone so the sound is distorted. The process is slow but I'm still chopping at it. This is with 3 chamber flowmasters.
Question fellas, will bullet mufflers, will this be a lot louder? My guess is yes.

Default E98

So I got my drum of E98 today and this is the only label. I also found a calculator for mixing but I would test it to make sure. I was expecting the label to tell me what the other 2% was. Parts of me wonder if they gave me the wrong drum since it doesn't have the 2% and just says grain alcohol. I'm still doing research and was hoping someone more knowledgeable could chime in.

are you trying to get the 98 down to 85?

Well I have 14.1 compression and my uneducated guess was thinking more like E87. I was messing around with this calculator and also used 120 for the octane rating of the 98 and 105 for the 85. I plan to do a test to confirm the percent. I just want to make sure the engine has enough octane. http://www.intercepteft.com/calc.html
After looking into it more, It seems like I should be mixing it with 87 octane.

Well, I finally have some updated pics. Car is running and it feels good on the butt dyno. This week I should be able to start getting the interior back together. I don't have slicks or the funds at this time to buy any so I'm going to just have to wait it out on taking it to the track. Next inline is installing interior and putting plates on it.
