    Default enriching nitrous with methanol

    as not to jack 76miller's thread anymore than we did already who's enriched with nitrous and how many gallons did it take to run thru a 10lb or 15lb bottle? seriously thinking about ordering a cell to go under my rear seat, my nitrous set-up can do alky and i think i wanna try it what size fuel line would i use from the tank to the pump/regulators/solenoids? would 3/8ths be enough for up to 500hp of nitrous with methanol? 140gph pump?

    What was your question ? You can post it here or send me a PM.

    As long as they can give you the correct jet sizing you should be fine. Some of the Nitrous companies don't like running methanol because the fuel distribution may not be as consistent as gasoline. Methanol fuel droplets are larger than gasoline, but the NOS shears the methanol when the high pressure stream hits it.

    As I stated in the other thread, I have a separate spray bar that runs the methanol under the carb. On very hot day's the injected methanol ( I run a small jet) can pickup 200 rpm's. The engine just loves it.

    so you just injected methanol seperately instead of shooting it thru the same bar with the nitrous?

    For better distribution on the Ford spider manifold the Nos systems spray bar's are installed in the intake plenum. Under the carb I have a plate system that only the fuel side spray bar is hooked up the small silonoid that it is connected to run's seperate from the main system.

    me and hass talked about doin that awhile back, maybe stack a thin cheapo plate on top or bottom of mine to inject the methanol. think it'd be easier for me to just run it thru the plate i have, it'lll flow enough methanol. i do like the idea of being able to run some methanol seperately just for a lil boost when the bottles outta the boat.

    Would running methanol eliminate the need for timing retard, or just lessen how much you would need to back it off. BTW where do you buy methanol.

    i can get methanol cheap here, about 240-250 a drum, there's dirt tracks everywhere here to buy it at.


    you'd think you could get away with more timing, but i like the idea of it more as a detonation control. i'll get loose here in a bit and talk to nitrous express about it.

    You can cut it in half.

    You can buy it at most places that sell race gas.
