Methanol cure for limp?

Had a chat with Shiv yesterday about the methanol kit for the Procede. He claims that methanol injection will lower intake air temp, reducing ignition retard, increasing combustion efficiency and reducing oil temps 30ish degrees. This might be a cost competitive solution for limp modes on a hot day. You just have to resist the urge to crank up the boost to maximum to get another 120HP or so on a stock engine and undo what you just gained. But on a cool day, you could probably go for it. Ordered the kit so I will test and report.
