PTF users... which meth setup is best/safest/reliable? Want to install myself. Help?!

I think it is finally time to add meth/water to my setup.

PTF E40
AMS fmic
ER CP w/ single bung pre-diverter(s)
AFE DCI
PE (not that is matters)

I know of the HSF-4 is popular. I would want to install myself. Not the best with electronics...but have done the Walbro inline and altered my steptronic non-paddle pre lci to LCI paddles/mtech wheel. Have installed and done almost all of my stuff but the meth is always the one that scares me.

I guess I am hoping it isn't that big of a job.

Once it is installed...do you integrate it with the PTF flash? I'm sure there are threads and plenty of into...just hoping someone can set me straight in this thread.

Cheers!

You should get downpipes. At least 3 inch high flow catted ones that will flow more than your stock downpipes.

For methanol injection with a ptf tune, the hfs-4 is what jake recommends. Its the best option to use with flash tunes.

I installed the hfs4 myself it wasn't hard to do but it did take me 2 day to install about 4 hours a day.

Just installed mine recently and it wasn't that difficult at all. I took my time and researched all mounting, and routing possibilities cause I wanted a real clean install. The kit will come with posi-tabs for tapping into the dme harness so if you can handle the walbro this should be a breeze. Once done hit up ptf for a custom map and your done.
