You'll love the progressive control of the kit while in boost. Very noticeable difference in power. What you plan on running 50/50 or 100% meth? I like the 100 but will see what Tracy does soon to my car when it returns for some surprises.

It was recommended that I might want to think about 80/20. However, Snow recommends 50/50, so I am going to go try that first (cheaper as well), and see how that goes with the new controller.

Mixed is cheaper. At the track they have it for $4 a gallon. The shops have it for $9 a gallon!

With the Snow pumps you have to watch what type you do use. The components are not like the Alky Control's that will allow use of 100% methanol. If they recommend 50/50, you should stay that way. Plus at your power levels 100% methanol is far from needed. I try to only use 100% meth on cars 500+ rwhp.

A friend sent me this list of alternatives to use I am running 50/50 but he recommend the splash - 25 for the content of meth at 41 % and is only 1.99 a gallon. Can be found at any kmart. He been using it for some time what do y'all think?

Interesting list, I know of many that have used some of these for Meth. Nice to see a break down of percentages. Thanks for posting this hunter!

Hi all,

I know have not posted much in a while because I have only gotten on the forum a few times lately. My heart has just not been in it. It took me a few weeks after I got back before I got with the shop by me to see about the meth kit stage 3 and putting an oil restrictor on to get rid of the oil at tailpipe and occasional smoke I would see. He was busy for the next month, so decided to just continue babying it and I just parked my car. Around mid-January, I dropped it off. He wanted to get the oil/smoke cleared up before messing with meth kit and/or switching to an additional fuel system. He made me a custom oil restrictor so that we could change the size easily since COMP was not much help in telling us a size. We started off with a 62 (mm?, not sure) and he wanted me to drive it and let it flush out what was in the system. I drove it for about 3 weeks, trying to baby it the whole time. It improved, especially with oil visible at the tips, but still some and would see occasion smoke. Since it improved, decided to go just a tad smaller, down to 57, emptied the catch can, and drove it a few more weeks. About the same results. So, needed to start eliminating possibilities. So, dropped it off Saturday to get Vertical door kit (want the whole package, looks and performance) and a leak down test, I believe it is called. Well, got off the phone a while ago... and not good results. Passenger side was fine, as was piston 1 on drivers side. However, piston 2 was showing 15% and piston 3 was showing 22%. Won't know exact damage until tear into it, but he said one might be damage piston, and the other damage piston and value, I believe is what he said (was kinda of numb and don't remember everything clearly). Anyway, it will be quite some time before I will be posting any firm numbers. What is the expression, if you want to play, you have to pay. C'est la vie. But here are a few pics of my car with the Spyder lights.

By the way, I think I remember something about a timing chain or similar issue on 2010 models. Does that ring a bell with anyone? Thought I might go proactive on it since going to have to tear into it anyway.
