Meth injection question
 
Ive been hearing about Snow performance and Alky injections methanol injection kitsfor a while and wanted to see how you guy that are running meth injection like it and is it worth it compared to nitrous. Also beside the extra ponies, what are the positives and negatives of running meth injection. Will the car have to be retuned to run meth?

Meth and nitrous are nothing alike when compared about producing power. Nitrous, hands down if you want to make HP. On a NA car meth will do pretty much nothing. On FI you will get the cooling effect and the extra octane which will allow more timing thus creating more power. They are completely different.

Get yourself a nice Alky Controls kit. :D. Why do you need a kit to go careless. You could have Ted just weld in a section of straight pipe.

1969to2010 07-07-2012 10:30 PM

That's pretty much what arh is going to do
Ill talk to Ted on Monday about it

I just figured it would be way cheaper to have some straight pipe welded in and since your car is at Teds see if he can knock it out first thing Monday am.

Put a cam in the car. Meth isn't going to give you all the much.

EncoreCamaros 07-08-2012 09:23 AM

I was planning on doing both soon, im gunna go with jre rough idle blower cam. Would the car have to be retuned for the meth bc of the extra octane?

1969to2010 07-08-2012 12:41 PM

Technically yes, but it's not the best idea to tune for power with the meth. If the meth fails, which does happen, youll be in a world of shit. Even the teachers at the efi classes are saying if you want more power run race gas and use the meth for cooling. But to answer your question, yes, you will need a retune.

That's a good bit of advice right there. Meth for cooling IATs.
