For you guys running meth... most are running 50/50... anyone running a higher concentration (75/25-80/20-100%)? Any gains or problems with this? I have access to meth and could pretty much get my hands on as much as I would need. Just curious... dont want curiosity to kill the eco. Thanks
100% will be fine. 100 is faster than 50/50, I never really tried much between. Just remember 100 is flammable, just don't be stupid with it, treat it like gas.

Just finished installing my kit tonight, I'm using the washer fluid reservoir for now so before I hooked up the line to the nozzle I drained out my tank, if I had to guess I'm running 85/15 meth to water.

Gotcha thanks for the info... I've been having my kit install for a few months except for my "low level" and "pump running" LEDs. I've mounted the LEDs in my switch panel, now I have to get the wires run to them. I've adjusted my controller a few times and tried it out, and I know it's coming on because I've noticed my tank level has come down... but I notice NO difference in power and NO improvement in 0-60. I started with a windshield washer fluid base and added 16oz of pure methanol to my tank (3/4 gallon tank) so I know I'm over 50/50 but I'm getting nothing noticeable... I'm wondering if I have too small of a nozzle (it came with 3, I'm using the medium sized one) or what? Any ideas?
On another note... I've been running shawn's V4 for a few days now and it is absolutly freaking awesome (thanks Lance, I followed you here from Unleashed). Everything about it is what I dreamt of... faster than unleashed and superchips by a lot... way smoother than unleashed (doesn't have the rough idle/running any more and the shifts are a lot nicer) and I ran 0-60 in 5.7 this morning which is a half second faster than both tunes (its very hot and humid in south Louisiana this time of year + I'm running heavier than stock wheels with 10 ply 70# LT33x12.50r20 toyo Open Country MTs). The launch literally gives me butterflies... can't wait to try V5. Great job Shawn and all who helped him in development. Only issue I've noticed has been reported by several people... it down shifts into 1st too early when coming to a stop. I'll email shawn to have this adjusted soon, I noticed that if I put it in manual and down shift under 10mph I don't feel any jerkyness (I know not a word)... so I'll have it adjusted to downshift under 10, problem solved! Again great job and thanks to all who developed this awesome tune, especially the mad scientists Shawn.

Glad your enjoying mike!

Mad scientist is a great description. In only about 4 months... shawn has surpassed the competition that has been dealing with these engines for years.

I thought you weren't supposed to use the one with de-icer because of the glycol content

250 - 350 RWHP: 175 ml/min nozzle
350 - 475 RWHP: 375 ml/min nozzle
475 - 600 RWHP: 625 ml/min nozzle
These are the nozzles mine came with... again I use the 375 ml...too much? Too little?

That's about 5-6 gph. I'm running 10 on 100%.

The best thing to do is take it to the track. Keep adding meth and it should get faster, MPH. When it stops or declines then back it off to the peak.
