    I'm moving some of my business operations to Midland, Tx, and there is no e85 out there

    Where is the best place to get some e85 to me?
    I've never had to order fuel before.
    No idea where to begin.

    Suggestions?

    Oh yah.

    Man, I've been having a long last few days.
    Couldn't think about any of that.
    I forgot they did ethanol too.
    Guess if I'm going to order ethenaol, I need to get a tune for my hometown with e85, and tune for e100. I'll talk to Tim today.

    Well, I added more on Tims to do list, so, now not sure. Getting a trans and converter put in now. For some reason Tim tells me the factory trans won't hold up to a 1,000hp ray Barton hemi... I dunno.

    He is right. Look at Paramount Performance's FB page and you will see what 900 plus, does to the trans.

    I didn't ask for the details. I've been involved with transmissions before. Built a few myself.
    Every one has a hook or a sales pitch. I'm new to gassers but I've worked on diesel pickups for years now. Those guys are taking transmissions designed for 450lbs torque and making them hold 2,500lbs torque.
    Many vendors have many reasons for using the trans they do. Some have good profit margins, some good Warrenty, etc.

    I trust that Tim has my best interest in mind and would not want a failure knowing how I drive and treat the car. He would suggest only the best trans. I honestly do not even know the brand of trans going into my car. I just straight up told him, whatever transmission you think is best for my car, that hold up to my power and driving habits.
    He gets paid the big bucks to do that.
    I'll ask him later today or Monday the brand going into my car. I do not think it is a NAG1.
    Tim has been pretty steady on what transmission is best. I'm sure he has told me a few times. I honestly don't mind the brand, as long as it holds. Trump himself could have built it, or Bill Bobs econotrans service. If it holds, it holds. That's all I'm worried about.

    As far as research goes into what transmissions are available, I don't know. I know not many. This trans hasn't been around like the 727torqflites.
    I know us coast has some options up around 450hp/900tq for the ecodiesel but that's all I know. I've been focused on expanding my business lately. Haven't been able to give as much attention to my hobby as I would like.

    I was being a little mellow dramatic.
    I had good luck at my hp, but I only put 1,000miles, and 900miles were on street tires, so, wasn't hooking. When I did hook, the motor let go. I'm sure the trans wasn't too far behind.

    It's a Paramount trans, so, I guess maybe a NAG1?

    I'm not sure. I've got lots of logs in the fire, buying new equipment, finiancing, and securing work, while making sure prices are good, that I've entrusted my car to Tim and focused on more important matters for the time being.

    After my life settled down a little and I get my car back, I'll do some research and learn what I have.

    Thanks.
