why meth? if you dont mind me asking... Why not N2o?

Meth is pretty much an additive for an octane boost. You'd need a pretty serious chip written to perform with meth....
I have experience in nitrous though

Give this a read if you need to get your rocks off, and for those of you who need a more instantaneous gratification... I can provide that also.





You are all just so very welcome.

...bout as much as you'll spend re-plumbing, and the return for the effort is paltry in comparison to a basic N2O install.

I recommend sticking with the laughing gas for a street machine. Lot's of fun to be had there.

From what a read snow performance kits can be tailered to a car super easy. It's cheap as hell compared to N2o but not nearly the gain. With a good tune I'm sure It's worth it.A snow performance rep said the solution is basically windshield washer fluid lol. There mix just has a bit more octane.

Meth injection works as an octane booster as already mentioned. For a stock car, you wouldn't see much of any gains. They seem to work best for boosted applications or with an aggressive tune. There are lots of companies that sell kits to work for all cars or you can build your own kit for cheaper. And yes, it is true. Meth injection really is just washer fluid haha are you planning on boosting your car or running a tune for something like 100 octane?

I think your right. I should send him a hook up on computer components and IT systems. I used to work for one of the larger global computer component and embedded brokerage company in Atlanta. They have government / military contracts as well.

Then again if that's his field of industry. Then he probably heard of them.

Funniest thing they also supply components for megasquirt, Sysco Systems, Motorola, Caddillac Jack (Computerized slot machine and gaming manufacturer), and various other companies.

Jon's a good source for info on everything FI.
