Thread: Nitrous and water methanol

  1. #1

    Nitrous and water methanol

    I know that water methanol is used to cool the intake chamber and suppress detonation so that more timing and more boost can be used in turbo and supercharger engines. But can I use it with nitrous so I can use a bigger nitrous shot? Right now im spraying it with 100 shot off the line, was wanting to put a water methanol kit on and jet the nitrous up to 125 maybe 150. Any suggestions?

    Yeah, dont do it.

    It's far better to control detonation by reducing timing, using proper octane fuels and having a bullet proof fuel supply.

    Let the turbo guys use the washer fluid.

    The water suppress detonation, the methanol burns like higher octane fuel. My engine runs at 32 degrees with 100 shot, on the streets I take it back up to 36 degrees. Ive seen it done on turbo and supercharger engines. Just wondering if I could leave my timing at 36, bump it up to 125 or 150 shot, if there would be any improvement.

    All its ever had is 93 octane minimum
