Water methanol injection on N A motor?

Was wondering if anyone is running water meth injection on naturally aspirated just to keep intake temps lower during hot weather? Surely it has to provide some benefit especially to the high compression lfx engines etc.. Hope someone may have info on this thanks.

We have done it on a few vehicles. Mainly higher compression. It will make additional power, but it needs to be dialed in and setup properly or you will have a car that won't run worth anything. I have had to fix a few NA setup due to improper tuning. When running properly it is a very nice benefit.

That's interesting. I need to review my kit and speak to my tuner. Had meth installed at his recommendation for added safety but there was no power gains. Then again, I wanted a pretty conservative tune.
