Would I be able to run E-85 with 42lb an hour injectors on a heads cam only motor? All my mods are in my sig.

Yes. That's what i did at first.

What kind of increase in power did you see? From 91 or 93 octane? And did you run your stock fuel line with it?

Can't really say. I did not get it on a dyno, and I'm really not set up for drag racing so my times are always bad.
I later used the stock fuel lines with 2 pumps and 79# injectors at 58 psi. So the fuel line wont be an issue. They flow plenty for what you have.

Do you know how long the stock fule line would hold because I am being told I need to upgrade them so the e-85 doesnt chew through the stock stuff.

Don't believe the hype. I used them for 4 years or so for feed lines and now use the feed as a return for the last 2 years. I also run E-85 in my 05 GMC Sierra. It has 170,000 miles on it half using E-85.
The only issue I have seen is it leaves a sticky residue around the injector tip. Just run some 91 through it every so often and it cleans it off.

E 85 will not "Chew through" the stock nylon fuel line.
