Water/meth is water and methanol injection. It's used to cool off egt's and make power. You can run anything from straight water up to a 70% mix of meth and water. Washer fluid is a great daily driver stuff to inject. The colder the rating on it, the more meth it has in it. Normally it's around 20% meth. You can rig a setup real easily. Just need a pump, some lines and fittings, and a hobbs switch. The hardest thing is finding the nozzles that'll atomize the water properly so you don't have big droplets being dumped in.

You can find methanol at almost any race shop in town or at model shops that sell gas powered hobbies. Works great when you need that little extra humpf while towing or racing. I dont reccomend building your own, to much to risk.

As said before ... windshield washer fluid is VERY common, and perfectly fine...AS LONG as it strictly has ONLY h2o/methonal in it. Some will have some gels in it, which are NOT GOOD to inject.

I wouldn't recommend going anything over a 50/50 mix of water/meth.

I am getting ready to installed a Snow Stage 3 kit during this build as well. Snow also sells there own "boost juice" which is a perfect 50/50 blend.

Sweet. Boost juice is pricey though. I will most likey plan on running blue windsheild washer fluid. It obviously has a higher water ratio than meth ratio, but will still serve a good purpose

Try finding the washer fluid that has like a -30* rating on it. It's real tough to find down here but you will probably have a better chance. It's got a good ratio of meth in it.

My buddy's are running 60/40 and 70/30 with good results. They said 80/20 knocks a little. :lol3:

a question for anyone running water/methanol...how often are you topping it off? every tank? every other?

Depends on how often and how long you spray it. A gallon will last for 7 or 8 1/4 mile passes.
