you said your car is faster after the install? i was under the impression meth/alcohol injection would hinder performance until the car is tuned for it?

Jave is more helpful than not
it effectively raises octane thus the improved performance. The kit could hinder performance but if it is detuned it will be ok.

you added alky and only added 2 psi of boost???

normally more boost is added than that unless you used more timing or something?
