92 F150 w/ I6 -- E85 Use/Conversion

OK, I have a 92 F150 with a I6. I've seen some suggestions that I can just use E85. The news guys were on the other night and said don't do it. Some threads suggested swapping the injectors to a slightly larger set. This seems to correspond with a E85 computer control/wire set that keeps the EFI open a little longer.

I could fool around with all this. But, the big question on my mind is:

Will I have to replace all the rubber/plastic in the fuel system?
- Fuel pump
- Fuel tank gasket (rubber)
- Fuel lines (dual tank and the octopus is hard to find)
- Injectors?? (I'm getting vague in my knowledge here)

Will I have increased water corrosion? I saw some mention of that. There there a way to counter act the tendency of alchohol to attrach water?

I saw mention of someone running a mix like E50. At what point does the mix start causing some of the problems listed above?

Did I miss anything?

BTW, I have a 93 Mustange with a 5.0. Will the 5.0 behave the same as the 4.9?

Are all the fuel lines metal? If so a custom burned chip should be all that is needed. I put a Diablo Sport custom two tune chip in my 99 Ranger with the 2.5 from a local guy in SD.
