1M Meth injection

Hi guys,


would like to gather some feedback, anyone on flash tune (e.g. Evolve/ESS) that happens to be running on methanol injection?


can we run 20/80 meth/water mix without a specific map?

All comments appreciated

If you don't tune with meth in mind you'll likely run into trim issues, but the charge air benefits will still be realized and you'll have more headroom on the octane side.

Why would you spray 20% meth? Just curious. If fire is a concern, run boost juice at 49% methanol.

my workshop told me that it will be safe if i'm mixing 20/80 mix without tuning..

what do you mean by boost juice? JB4?

i'm on evolve tuning btw..

A lot of us with flash run methanol injection.

IMHO, your best choice is the aquamist hfs4.

I've ran 100% meth all the time, no issues at all. It depends what you want out of it. 50/50 is a good place to start.

And yes to really make use of the benefits (and make more power) you need to be tuned for it.

you can always email me and ill walk you through it
