I reflashed my ECU today to accept E85 and I put ~6 gallons of E85 to make E30 (needed for this particular flash) and does the car pull!

Plenty of cars can run on a mixture of gasoline and E85... it's just a matter of reflashing your ECU

Still doesn't make a whole lot of sense in your case of actually making more power with E85.
