Nos vs Methanol

ok, i have come across a methanol injection set for $200 (through a friend) and was wondering if i should do that or go for nos....
all i have right now is a K&N, so everything internal is stock...im looking for a power gain, and cost effectiveness...

thanks in advance

Meth injection is used more on boosted cars, go with Nitrous. Methanol injection and water injection help keep things under control, doesn't really add any power.

meth is used to cool the incoming air that was heated by a turbo or supercharger.

I think non FI cars can gain some decent HP with meth injection. Colder air always = more power potention. For $200 I say do it.

Isn't the meth injected onto the outside of the intercooler to cool the air? How are you going to use it to cool incoming air if you don't have a intercooler?

Not exactly sure how it works, but I have read that it was done and was sucessful. Check this: Picked up 20 rwhp on N/A Vmax 6.0 with methanol kit dyno testing today - LS1TECH

add a cam, bump compression up and here is some HP that many are missing out on.

Sounds interesting, but needs a tune right out of the box before you use it.
I wonder where they are injecting it?

it sprays right into the intake charge. as said it's just to bring the intake air charge down in temp plus it adds a little protection from knock for boosted cars by raising the octane. for that type of power NO2 is the way to go but doing it right (and thereby maybe saving your engine) isn't cheap.

NO2 is if you don't want more power all the time. I DD mine so gettign real HP with a street cam isn't gonig to happen. Plus I would need a heavy duty cam that would also hurt my driving on the street. Thats why I'm a fan of NO2. Its the best of both worlds. Just not street elgal lol
