meth kit with BOV? dangerous?

Hi guys

havent posted in a while, been so busy. anyway here goes.

Going to get a bms meth kit.

I know many arent that fond of BOVs but i love their sound

Anyway has anyone had any bad experiences with using a blow off with a meth kit?

Surely the meth would fly down the CP and then partly get shot out of the valve into the engine bay.

I guess a lot of the meth would get evaporated in the engine bay due to the heat...?

If do-able any recommendations on CPs that would fit a HKS bov for instance.

You'll be fine. Lil if any meth may come out . soo far zero known fire incidents. Buying a quality , leak free bov makes a difference too.

You'll be fine. If you are running the BMS meth kit with the JB4, it won't spray meth with the throttle in the closed position.

There are many people with BOV's and methanol being used today. I did myself for 3 years.

Just please avoid using the WW tank as the reservoir and save yourself the risk of a fire.

The ER charge pipe can do HKS BOV and 1 or 2 meth bungs. I recommend 2. If you have any questions I'm a PM away.

+1 Listen to Jeff. Running Meth in the WW tank is a big NO NO... I almost burned my car up and you can find a lot of examples where people were not as lucky as I... So play it safe and keep the junk in the trunk...
