Default methanol versus plain distilled water

does anyone use just distilled water. how much does the addition of methanol incerease the hp potential? My questions revolve around the effect of the meth on my link IAT sensor? I've determined from searches that water doesn't affect it but I don't know if they were using plain water or water with methanol.

I will be running straight water just to show everyone that great gains can be made even without methanol. It doesn't get any simpler than just water.

The methanol can add up to a point when measuring the afr's. I went from 13.5:1 to 12.5:1.

I have 94 octane and no inspections so no catalytic converter. one of things that appeals alot to me about WI is how it cleans the combustion chamber.
