bigger injectors are a must. depending on your goals maybe a external fuel pump and line.

You will need some where around 20-50% more fuel so bigger injectors and a bigger pump are a must in my book. The average is 30%. You can add some ignition timing too.

If you are running close to a stock motor there is no real reason to switch. The power gains are not that big. But if your are running higher compression or a lot of boost it is a good idea. e85 is about equivalent to 105 octane it just helps you control knock for the most part with out running race fuel.

It has some emission benefits too I gauss.
