Default E85 set-up questions

So, for those that have converted to E85 that are running injection, What kind of jet/ tune-up changes did you make? Does anyone know were to go to get info on this?

I have a 96 Ed Quay Dragster (1830 lbs.) that currently runs 7.90s @ 170. mph in the quarter (about 700 horsepower est.) on Methonal.

My car runs a a Rons Flying Toilet Injection system. This is a constant flow mechanical injection system w/ a Waterman .500 pump that turns 4.85 gal per min. On Methonal I'm running .31 nozzle jets and a .70 main jet with a 6 lbs. relief spring.

I am very interested in converting to E85.

Is anyone one here currently running a similar set-up?
Can anyone give me an idea of were to start ?
Can anyone put me in contact with someone that can help me with set-up?
What kinds of temps should I expect on an EGT system if I'm running 32 deg. timing?
Should I change the timing in my car on E85?
What type of water temp. gains should I expect to see during a pass on E85?
What type of Air/ Fuel Ratio numbers should I see on my O2 gauge?
Is there anything else I should know about E85 before running it?

Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
