I modified my 19 year old 200000 mile turbocharged daily driver to run on E85...I have driven it for two years on E85 with double HP (original 146, now around 260) and have driven additional 40000 miles w/o any problems. I did 70 track laps as well.

Thread starter is probably having ordinary wear-related issue. Many are inclined to pin the problem on whatever reason they find suitable. In this case 10% ethanol. I find that unlikely.

Lot's of Ethanol will wash away harts accumulated in fuel tank and clog fuel filter. It will also deplete old rubber...after a long time...but not in 10% concentration and not on stock tune.

So I'm quite adamant regarding that this problem has quite mundane underlying explanation. Likely one fuel pump being inoperable or filter clogged.
Thank you for your time,
