Full E85 or Meth+Race Fuel

So far everyone has done meth with race fuel with good results; however, only a few cars have done full E85 (one being fuel-it themselves) but no data has been released for that.

I'm debating to see if I should try full E85 or continue on with meth/race fuel as everyone else has done with results. E85 is easily accessible here in Dallas where as I'd have to buy drums of race fuel to use. What are some pros/cons of going each route? Opinions needed!

Mods include forged motor; PS2 turbo, exhaust, DP. Drivetrain items have been upgraded as well.

Man I want to get into the big power game so bad but I don't want to sacrifice reliability...this is my daily and I'd be pissed if one of the rods tried to leave me lol. Gotta pay to play, I guess.

What do you consider great power on pump? The most i've seen on pump alone is maybe high 600whp to low 700whp?

My M5 only equipped with an akrapovic line only rolls with E85. The reprogrammer had difficulties in the development. The performance gain is almost impossible because the HP pumps are reaching saturation. At the passage of the summer E85 (I do not know if it's like that at home but in France the ethanol rate varies between summer and winter) he had to resume because after a few accelerations the car was safe following a pressure drop of 2 pumps. I even replaced the low pressure pump for safety, but that did not change anything. Since his last intervention I have no more cuts. It's 20,000km that I ride only at E85.
So it is possible but no gain possible because we are at the limit of the capacity of high pressure pumps.

I've heard the xdi35 can be used. I'll get more info once I talk to my shop about what we are going to do.

To clarify, on stock injectors/pumps, you can go full e85, but stay under ~600whp.
