Sure, with race fuel, wouldn't have any vacuum for power brakes. Not great street manners but would be nasty. I would put a street style pan on it if it has a circle track pan baffled for left turns. I road coarse baffled pan would be fine.

put a little smaller cam in it, and with that stated 12.9:1 compression ratio, it would make a mighty fine dedicated E85 street motor.

Can this be ran in a street car (not a DD)? Anyone know why its considered a circle track motor?

Ask them for a dyno chart. That will give you some hints about how it would work on the street.

The cam specs suggest that the engine would be very "peaky". I suspect it makes a lot of horse power and torque in a very narrow band at relatively high RPM. Not the best for the street manners.

If you run a 5.38 rear gear it would be a lot of fun for a while.:)
