Best methanol set up ?

Hey guys I'm on the fence right now two many options . I'm fbo/flash/e85 and jb4. I know with most meth systems I can intergrate the jb4 with there fsb. I know that hfs-4 is superior to most products but I just can't justify spending that much. What would be the next best thing besides the hfs-4, Devils own makes some nice products but can't find to many people running it to pick there brain haha. If anyone could help out would be cool thanks guys

If you were local i'd sell you my HFS-4 for pennies on the dollar. Haven't used it in months.....This is 200% just my opinion, but I wouldnt run any meth kit outside of the Aquamist. Others will feel differently and that's fine, but for my money HFS-4 is the only one i'd feel comfortable running.

Sparknotes: Save for aquamist.


If you aren't spraying for IAT control, i'd suggest you re-evaluate why you are spraying. There are legitimate fueling solutions available at this point, so spraying for fuel is completely un-necessary going forwards.

I'm running e70 right now with my bms e85 flash so I don't think there's much more I can do for fueling . Oviouly Iat aren't an issue anymore because it's cold out now so even after beating on my car I never see temps over 100 with my stock intercooler. But come summer that will def be an issue. I plan on running 100% meth now for the added torque and hp I know Its not gonna be a crazy jump maybe I'll see 20 hp 20 torque if I'm lucky and come summer I'll mix some water to help cool. Are u not running meth anymore ?

I haven't sprayed in half-a-year, should remove it from my sig but i'm lazy and just add stuff lol. It's just sitting gathering dust.

E70 you have more than enough octane, don't expect much in the way of power gains from meth. I'm sure it'll help to keep fuel happy, but it's not going to do much on that front. Nor should you be spraying for that reason IMO. You want more the conditions for more power, provide it with real fuel.
