    There was a topic on one of the forums a few months back, seemed guy had more trouble then it was worth and took it back off.

    IMO a good gas or alky carb would be much better.

    Buy a alcohol 4150 (APD) and leave the fuel mixing to someone else. Sounds like nothing but problems waiting to happen.

    You could always try carb w/fuel and alcohol Injection at manifold (direct Injection). I do it with blowers quite a bit.

    If your looking to reduce static pressure just throw a 100 shot on a carb with fuel.
