Looking for a alky meth kit

Anyone know the difference from the ECS kit and the snow and devil kit which is better and why.

I believe the ECS kit is based off the alky control kits. I have an alky control kit. It's awesome and the customer service is top notch. I cannot comment on the Snow or Devil's Own kit as I've never used them.

There have been a few threads on here about meth:

ECS kit is basically an Alky Control kit. Best in the business. Best controllers, 100% meth compatible, best customer service, all SS lines.

What size tank does the ECS system come with? I've seen one at East Texas Muscle Cars that has a nice big 4.0 gallon tank the fits great in the trunk. Trying to decide which system to get also.

I have a trunk mounted 4 gal cell. It's the one Julio from Alky controls offered. I bought the whole kit used from a member here but he got it from FSP. This is a pic of it before I made the hold down strap for it.

I have the exact same setup except I mounted my pump at the rear of spare tire well instead of the side.

What type of level indication does it have? It looks like it doesn't have a visual level.

They have a low light indicating red LED you mount somewhere in the cabin as a visual reference when the level is low. The black wire going into the top of the tank is it.

I went with Alky control and the AIS trunk kit. Just dropped off the car at Lethal Racing to get the blower installed with the meth kit and a few other things.

Car is pretty much finished up awaiting Shawn to put a tune on it.

Man am I scarred of methanol injection like if the witch came out at night,, pump seals failing or pumps quit working after time nothing the installer or pump manufacturer can do about that parts always fail, and once you don't have meth spraying to cool the charge temps go up fast and detonation occurs. unless the kit has some real good failsafe's I would recommend going e85 or have two maps one with pump and other with race gas.

That truly is the Best/Cleanest setup IMO.

Fail safe built in. If meth doesn't spray it fails flat on its face and you'll get a red light instead of green.

Yep, only an issue if your tuner doesn't know what they are doing.

Something i do everyday before driving the car to check the system is: Start up the car, open the glove box, push the test button on the Alky controller and note the AFR drop and IAT plunge as the car slightly bogs down. Just one step in my checklist everytime i take the car out.

Helps ensure "piece of mind" it also primes the lines to make sure the meth is right there....and yes, i do have a checkvalve in the line.

I agree,.. What ever happened to running the freon into the intercooler? Norwood racing/Norwood Ferrari in dallas was making some badass custom intercoolers back in the 90s. he had the little 3.2 liter 328 ferrari making 1000hp safely.

Do a little research on pump types. The Chevy world is full of guys who think the Alky system is so good. The RV water pumps they use are unacceptable by most people who are really in the know. These days if your kit isn't using a recirculating style pump you are way behind the times. And your nozzle really should have a built in check valve that is big and high flow that can't get clogged.
