Water/methanol injection

So me n my buddies were talking n they brought up h20 Meth injection. I never heard of it before so it got me interested. But then I thought of how picky the scoob really its. And my main thought is that would it work in our cars? and there would have to be a tune I'd assume? Anyone every tried it or know anything about it?

What are you doing it for? Power or safety?

Not really, depends on mileage. How many miles?

What mods do you have done so far?

You will be pushing it with WMI.

I'd say safty should be your #1... But who am I?

Well, at 144K and you are wanting to run WMI for power, you are just shortening what life is left in your car. Running it for safety will prolong what life you have left in it.

If you were closer to say 60-90K I'd push it as well.

Just trying to get an understanding what you have planned.

As far as safety goes what is it going to do for me on that route?

Pretty much. Can you get E85 up there? Is it readily available?
