I think you may have some numbers confused. VP make a VP113 and I'm assuming that's what you're using. They also make a Q16 which is highly oxygenated. The Q16 requires bigger jets because of having the oxygenated compounds blended into the fuel. Our motor made higher horsepower on the dyno using the Q16, but the downside is, it smells terrible and give you a instant headache and bloody nose from just filling a fuel cell. The oxygen compound in the Q16 has been banned in California and is a known carcinogen. So you might want to maybe try using C23. Our motor is a 18:1 comp. ratio and although it makes less hp, we can all deal with it w/o getting sick.
