That is true.. The weather has been cooler down here. It was higher than that 12.0 AFR, but Jason has a plan to get it worked out. It's great having the wideband gauge right in the ****pit so you know if things are going a bit array.

Nice kit, made GREAT power on our Mustang Dyno!!!

I decided to go for the gusto and ordered an upgrade to a Stage III Snow kit.

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!
