    Can you be a little more specific? We run NOS with Alky. Make sure that your fuel solenoid is an Alky solenoid. We "T" the fuel line right before the fuel log over to the alky solenoid. No separate pump or fuel tank.

    i have never mixed methanol and nitrous,i was told to mount a small fuel cell and use race gas for the nitrous,but dont know about the methanol and race gas mix or is that not a good idea?

    It's perfectly fine to mix gas and methanol, the gas will produce more combustion heat which helps with nitrous.

    There is no need at all for a separate tank and using gas. We spray our motor with alky. We have the car set up with a 275 shot. When we do spray we pull 6* out. We have not sprayed the 1/4 mile as most of our quick races are 1/8 mile. Have sprayed a little over .20 with the alky.

    x2 on what Shawn is saying .. why put another fuel cell along with another fuel pump when you do not need to. I run a NX Stage 6 alky kit on mine, have for 6 yrs now, no issues. 4 degrees per 100hp timing out. I even run mine with injection (I have to use a seperate fuel pump because it is injection but a carb would be easy) 150hp for 2.5 seconds is 2 tenths for me

    Pink ... yep Mangina in check :wink:
