I'm interested to see how it would work. I know it would require more fuel due to the ethanol content, but I say give it a chance.

Not in any of my engines without some modifications. i.e. compression ratio, gasketing and the rubber parts that may come into contact with the fuel.
Alcohol can make some serious power if the setup is right. I have seen in the area of 50+ hp from a K motor up here. Head hold downs are a must. Definitely its own class. IMO
