E85 anyone?

I thought I have seen discussions here regarding e85, but my search is not turning anything up...

Anyone here running the fuel and appropriate carb setup for street use? Been doing a little research on the topic, and the drag racers have a lot of good things to say about e85 with a properly tuned carb. i am in the midwest, so plenty of the fuel around!

I was hoping a guy could just increase jet size and power valve, but looks like there is a little more to it than that for proper tuning.

There's a guy on this forum who sets up carbs for e-85. For the life of me, I can't think of his name. He hails from Michigan, UP.........

Edit: Just found him, Thumpin455 He hasn't been active since 3/19, try sending him a PM. Maybe he has e-mail notification when he receives a PM.
