Re: Water Methanol Injection... Good or Bad?

Well power will come with cooling effect, but from what I have been told is do not use Meth as a power. I have been told a mix of mostly water (to cool egt's) is best, methanol gets awfully dangerous for trying to make power... I could be wrong but I am sure someone running water/meth will chime in...

Re: Water Methanol Injection... Good or Bad?

have you ever run water/meth in your 6.0....... i have never dealt with it but id like to see what i can do...... im not real fond of seeing my pyro setting at 1200-1250 pulling hills loaded....... my pickup has 187,000 on it right now and only had 3 injectors and that was in the first 6,000 miles so im trying to keep it together as long as i can

Re: Water Methanol Injection... Good or Bad?

I looked into it real hard because of my towing egt's too, plus I can hit 1600* in a WOT pull with no load. I decided not to buy it because I just shouldn't spend to money right now. From what I have read on here people love it, but I have also read that most guys run just water... What tune are you towing in?

Re: Water Methanol Injection... Good or Bad?

when used for cooling only, its ok. When used for power, another bad idea.

Re: Water Methanol Injection... Good or Bad?

I ran it in my cummins, used a 50/50mix. Worked well. As for the ford, I hear you need to use like 30/70. 70% water that is. I have the stage two and plan on using it for cooling when running hard.
