...any recent information on the interaction between fuel solenoids and ethanol fuel? I have read that nitrous suppliers had seen fuel solenoids diaphrams swell from ethanol, and am looking at pulling the trigger on a nitrous setup. If it looks to be a problem i nthe future it will be enough for me to go dry.

Dave? Robert? Any news?

Why a dry set up, wet hit's harder, makes more power and torque.

And yes the plunger and everything must be changed when converting.

Maybe my question wasn't clear enough. I'm referring to fuel producers using a higher and higher content of ethanol in the fuel that was rumored to damage the fuel solenoid. Is this really happening or is it a non-issue.


I'm fully aware of the advantages/disadvantages of a wet vs. dry shot.

Greg,
The manafactures are working on a more universal material. I have seen only a few issues of plunger swelling. So its still not a huge problem as of right now.
I do nkow that they now have E85 systems for teh guys running the E85.
