John did a great job on those hot bits.
Yeah, I have considered other cars for next season, but that means building an entire car. I dont have that budget. I may look into another powertrain for this little bitch car though. Maybe a V8 ha ha.

Running pure meth is a pain in the *** and not as advantageous to spool as even a 10 shot of n2o would be.

What kind of set up would up do? Dry wet ect??

Yes, I was serious. And yes, meth will cool below ambient.

Please tell why running pure meth in a WI system would be a pain in the ***. I have a 5 gallon pail in my garage.

Shoot n2o in the intake like normal.

I'd keep the shot as small as possible, and progressively go away as rpm's raised, probably shut off completely around 4k so you don't risk hitting the rev limiter with it. Use it just to spool. Good, safe, smart control would be key.

Wet direct port would be nice but I don't think you could get the shot small enough. Should last all weekend with one bottle.

Just a thought. You should start talking to some of the small displacement big turbo drag guys. Just guessing might be popular in the eclipse world. Or talk to some of the J teams if you can.




Fae, we're talking about spooling a big turbo with small displacement, why do you think meth would help a big turbo spool better than n2o? Also why not just run methanol or ethanol instead of gasoline? Why not run nitromethane? Talk to some indy crew about how fun it is to run pure alcohol.

**** I didn't say it would spool it better. He just already has the WI system in place so all he has to do is pour the meth in.

Why not run meth instead of gas? Pumps, injectors, lines need to be compatible.

Why not run e85 instead of gas? He should. E85 FTW.

Why not Nitromethane? Because give me a ******* break.

I run 110 now.

I will see what happens. n20 could work well. it may be easier for me to just put my old system back on and finish out the season and work on something new for 2012..

Ha ha I was just going to post this when I had a chance. I have been buried at work and home.
Well it didnt spool where I needed it to. Se we just stopped tuning. I got it to I think 410rwhp, but the top wasnt tuned at all. That was at 25psi and just trying to dial in the bottom end. I needed it handled ASAP for an event, so it was pulled off and will probably not go back in unless I figure out a smaller turbo from Garrett that will work in the exh. housing I have.

It will be up for sale shortly. The manifold, Down pipe, piping for the waste gate. I just need to make sure I can sell the Exh housing with it. Its a contract thing. Once I know, it will be for sale. Hopefully with the Exh. Housing. So someone would just need a turbo, and a Wastegate.
I have no idea what to price it at LOL!!
