I just finished cleaning up a 3800sc swap. The donor PCM for 3800sc was tuned for for E85 per the previous owner.
The car seems to idle and run great with E85 in it (Just did a light test drive as I don't want to hurt it) . But I believe I have stock 3800 injectors and a stock fuel pump.

I know I'm a step behind having obtained lots of used parts. But I assume I will need to upgrade both pump/injectors.
If I change to larger injectors and a better fuel pump will I need to re-tune?
Is it even possible to run a 3800 with a stock fiero fuel pump and injectors on e85?
Looking at DW300.

My goal is to drive the car to drive to Fierorama hence the post. Thanks

The fiero fuel pump wont even come close. Larger injectors will require a new tune. I think stock injectors should get you close to 300hp on e85 if you wanted to wait. The dw300 is a good pump.
