What does it take to convert a late model car to E85

Here's an SAE paper about converting a '99 Silverado to E85.

They're not trivial changes! The changes to the fuel system were significant:

1) fuel pump
2) fuel lines
3) fuel rail
4) injectors

The paper says that +25 LTFT indicated a "severe lean condition". I wonder if it was lean, or just an idication that the injectors were being pushed realy hard.
