Why would u put in e85? That would make him run leaner. We don't know what his a/f ratio is. Putting in a little racing fuel or 100LL avgas might help if it is pulling timing due to knock. If he is already got a weak fuel pump or maxed out injectors, i think e85 could help make a hole in a piston.

Show us a chart of a/f ratio

I got 94 octane gaz mixed with 114 octane gaz in it, so the knock is not the problem, i don't see lost of pressure on the gauge,my head is like brand new,is it possible the valve spring coming soft ??
When i put the mwr stage 2 cam i got a lot of black smoke untill the wideband said 12.2 to 11.8 at full trottle.
With the stock cam i got less black smoke but alway's smoking at full trottle.
My catch can are ok.
My surge tank is ok.
Cam look's good.
The plug are gapped to 20.
We try with no air filter and no exhaust and the same curve !!

It sounds like you'r running an EFI standalone EMS (the blue box).

Given that it's an EFI.

1) You're running 100% closed loop. you're not giving us 02 info. Have you checked this (AFR)? If the WB02 is not in good shape, then the EFI will enrich or lean the mixture all the way to redline with bad data from the wideband. It's critical that the WB be replaced every year or so. It could just be that the EFI is dumping fuel or pulling fuel from the motor due to poor WB inputs.

2) It may be misfiring. Depending on when the EFI was built and what model it is, it may need a crank trigger update.

3) It's not knock. The EFI doesn't use knock input.

4) Since you have EFI, you can hook the EFI up to a windows laptop and actually fetch nearly all engine data. Dyno plots without data is of no help in helping us help you.... There are videos on my website in the techwiki that go over some of the EFI features in addition to the software required.
