Now first off I want to start by saying this is not a thread for people to discuss the pros and cons of using E85 and it's impact on our environment. It has already been confirmed that oil companies have hired PR groups to smear ethanol as a sustainable alternative fuel source.
I simply want to know if anyone is running E85 in their iM ?http://www.scionimforum.com/forum/images/ScionIMForum/icons/post_question.png

This kit is supposed to allow many Toyota cars to run on E85, but Toyota can void a warranty if you run e85 or make engine modifications. However, tunners will still do it. And alternative sources of fuel are not as susceptible to price hikes gasoline and oil are (which tend to happen on a large scale every 4-5 years), which is why car companies are investing in alternative fuel vehicles (e.g. Hydrogen, ethanol, electricity)

Is anyone running E85 in their iM or have you seen it done in a Toyota Arius? If so did you change the fuel pump or fuel injectors?

Both the pump, and injectors would need to be upgraded, and the fuel lines as well if the switch were to be permanent. Corn Juice is better power wise for boosted applications. There would not be much power to gain from just switching to e85. An ECU upgrade and tune on 100+ octane or C16 would net the same results with less parts / labor.
