BALISTC knows their stuff
Default Methanol Injection

Hey everyone,

I know on the old forum, a few people were running this with excellent results.

What I want to know is, what kit was everyone using? Also, what kind of results should I expect from something like this?

i was thinking a DIY kit, such as this one, and having my Motec run it all.

Thoughts, comments and suggestions are much appreciated

Cheers!

accumulator is used to keep the mixture at a constant (high) pressure to atomise the liquid

bingo,
basically it allows you to have the pump and tank in the boot out the way and the accumulator maintains the pump pressure all the way to the front of the car,

regular systems need to have the pump and tank in the engine bay, which makes the options of fuels limited in case of fire, or alternatively require two pumps, one in a surge tank in the engine bay, the other from the boot.

boot mounted tanks allow more fluid, and also allow more freedom in fuels, ie race fuel/methanol/water/mixtures of all the above

generally you fit meth injection to push the limits even further, but yeah i imagine you could use it to provide some cooling effect to the intake charge to cool the motor down. wouldnt be as fun, but hey- itd work
