    I am wondering how many guys have or are running the water/meth injection on their turbo cars? If so how do you like it? I was thinking about ordering a kit for my cobra I just dont know if its worth it or not?? I do plan on 93 and e85 tune. would water/meth injection be worth it?

    My suggestion is to just run e85 full time. Forget 93 and water/meth

    I run it in my Turbo car on 93 octane but im not using it as fuel like I did with my Grand National. The GN needs it for fuel or it wont make any decent power. I use it as a buffer and run a little more timing but that's it.

    Most Tuners these days are tuning to E85 to make power so they dont usually mess with Meth but not everyone has access to E85. I sure dont unless I drive 45 minutes to the gas station which is exactly what I do and fill up my (10) 5 gallon jugs and then fill my 55 gallon drum up with it. I test it first.

    I still use the meth with E85 tho. Just as a cooling agent but E85 does a pretty good job of that anyway being ethanol and Meth are just two types of alcohol.

    E85 is about 104 octane which is about where ur at when adding Meth to 93 octane. Meth if used as fuel can sometimes help if ur injector is questionable and ur duty cycle is near 100%. It still cools the intake temps down even if not using as fuel. I like keeping IAT's at about 60-80 degrees. Makes me sleep better :)

    The downside is if ur tuning to it and dont have the proper fail safes (Like AED offers) then u risk leaning out and melting shit lol trus me melted plenty of 109 Buick motors when pumps fail or simply run out of Meth like a jackass like me smfh which is why I have the (5) gallon tank in trunk now smh.

    There are ZERO Mustang tuners that im aware of that will tune Meth as fuel. I come from the Turbo Buick world and its SOP there but not with Mustangs.

    I think the general consensus is u can make such great power without it so no one wants to risk the Meth failing and melting a $15k built motor. Mine failed this summer, was pissing out from a slip fitting that failed. The Pumps that Juilo sells from ALky.control are usually replaced every year or two to be safe.
