I have made a solo that involved all of the notes in a c minor scale, except that end the end I use an E instead of Eflat. Its in the last riff of the solo, and any other time I use an E. My question is, would it be better to change that E to an E flat or can i keep it the way I have it?

If it sounds good to you then keep it. If you are playing in C minor then E is just raising the minor third to a major third. You don't have to use strictly diatonic notes. What chords are you playing the E over?

While soloing, don't think of a scale as a limitation. Think of it as a guide that doesn't have to be followed 100%.

E is the relative major of C minor

That would be Eb.

Keep it SO LONG AS you have no other conflicting notes... if you insert something that is in conflict with you you ought to change it our it will make the entire piece with multiple instruments sound off. Every new note introduces a temporary constraint.

Yeah it sounds fine I was just wondering if it was okay to do that with both E and Eflat. not sure what chords, going to use some fifth chords probably. any recommendations?

and thanks all for the input
