Are you looking for more power with E85, or just tune it to where you are currently.
You should have enough headroom in your current system to switch to E85, but you'll be getting close to the safe limit if you end up pulling a little more power out of it.

It depends on the injector.
Most injectors can handle 90-93% IDC. Beyond that, they essentially go static.
When putting a fuel system together, it's a good idea to give yourself some headroom, and that is why most suggest running in the low-mid 80% range.

85% usually is the max you want to run, but my friends car (I tuned) is running a si blower @8-9 psi on a 60's and with the BAP turned up 75% it's only hitting @86% or so.
