Default 638 BBC --ALCOHOL OR 118 OXYGENATED FUEL ?????

HI GUYS , I HAVE A 638 BBC WITH BB4 CNC CONVENTIONAL HEADS , WITH TWO 1050 ULTRA HOLLEY DOMINATORS . IEM STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FINE TUNING THE MOTOR ON OXYGENATED FUEL [ $14 PER GALLON ] I WAS THINKING OF CHANGING OVER TO A COUPLE OF 1090 KING DEMONS ON ALCOHOL..I HAVE A 555 BBC ON MY NOVA WITH A RUPERT 1250 ALKY , AND IEM VERY HAPPY WITH IT . HAS ANYBODY HAD ANY EXPERIENCE RUNNING A BIG MOTOR , WELL 638 , ON ALCOHOL , I KNOW THAT ITS ALOT CHEAPER $ 3.75 PER GALLON ON ALKY ,,AND ALOT MORE TORQUE , I HEAR THAT HP DOEST PICK UP MUCH COMPARED TO OXYGENATED FUEL , SO THE ONLY ADVENTAGE WOULD BE THE PRICE AND THE TORQUE OFF THE LINE,,WHICH MIGHT BE USEFUL SINCE MY CAR WEIGHS 3100 LBS WITH ME IN IT , AND IT IS A BIG TIRE CAR 33-17-15 , SO IT WOULD HANDLE THE TORQUE . ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS , THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE FEEDBACK.
