my 328 ran fine with E30, JB4 and Flew Fuel wire. No need for lpfl unless you are looking to go FBO.

Been running E30 mix for 1 week and a half pretty big difference from regular pump gas. There is 100 octane in my area so I compared a 93 octane to e30 mix much perfer e30 over 93. Ive raced a 545i e60 v8 exhaust, intake and not to sure other mods from a dig and got him by 1 car and maybe a half maybe less also 370z and geni coupe from 40 rolls and put 2 cars on them almost bus lengths.

LPFP yes, and you will want a proper flash and be logging.

Definitely dangerous for Stock internals.

How would I hook up my n20 to run e30 ? I have my jb4 with the flex fuel wires tucked aside, but I wanna use them, I can just hook them up and start pumping a mixture ?

You need an upgraded LPFP as well. If you don't, you will stress your current one and it won't pump enough, leading to sputtering and idling issues.
