I have a '95 F-150 with a 4.9 (300) 6 cylinder, last year of the OBD-1. My ultimate goal is to build a gasifier and to run it on woodgas. But, I also want to run it on E85 or E100. Both ethanol and woodgas call for higher compression and advanced timing. But, I don't know beyond that.

I'm thinking the 4.9 is multi-port fuel injected rather than a single throttle body. Just haven't spent much time under the hood. A local machine shop is interested in this build. They do mostly race engines but like the idea of this research project.

Suggestions? I'm thinking larger injectors. What about cam? Computer? I've even considered going to a MegaSquirt. But, I want it to be a daily driver using pump E85.
