Smile Meth Injection on Naturally Aspirated SS

Hey guys I was just wondering what kind HP gains I can expect from meth injection on a naturally aspirated ss. Is it worth it? What kind of kit should I buy? And how much will the tune cost? Right now my only engine mod is a CAI. Any info is appreciated!

Methanol is good for IAT's, but unless you do more mods to the car it will not be worth it. We find it works best going to high compression NA or Supercharged. You have to watch out and not over spray the car thinking that more timing will get you more power. You can have that theory backfire on you when the burnrate of the meth slows down and you no longer gain power, but lose power. If used properly it can be beneficial with the right mods.

I am converting to E85 fuel cooler burn temps = more timing with tune should give me around 20 HP maybe more I will see when the parts come in

The gains from Meth on a NA would be almost nothing. It's very much targeted at a Forced Induction crowd.

E85 is a gasoline like when you put in 91 or 93 octane. Except you fill up with E85, although you need a better fuel system for that because it is a higher octane. From what I understand on that topic.

LSX Dr. I would really like to hear some longterm info on this...How much was MPG improved? Worth the cost? I live in Houston TX so cooler IAT's would be awesome, especially when we have constant 100deg days in the summer.
