It’s funny the difference in setups. The Meth made little to no IAT change on my Blower setup, but on the turbo spraying post intercooler I am seeing my iats drop about 10 degrees when it sprays. I have it turned down right now and still see IATs that are 10 below ambient at 10psi. I’ll see how it acts as I turn up the boost.

yeah, pre vs post-compression makes a big difference.

What's everyone's opinion on 50/50 water/meth versus 100% meth when injecting prior to a Magnuson?
Does the ol' "The rotors will get stripped of their coating" story hold truth?
Or how about "The water will hydrolock your engine."

I always used 70/30 meth/water with the blower. Tried numerous mixes and it seemed to like that the best.

it's about making sure it vaporizes before hitting the rotors so as to not make them attempt to compress liquid.
that's why a lot of folks recommend 100%

I've had a few Snow setups, all ended when the controller failed internally within a year of daily driving with weekend races.
Devils Own setup still working after several years.

I loved my alky control kit with progressive controller. I did swap out the nozzles for devils own threaded in style. i also used 100% meth M1. its cheap.

Careful which windshield fluid if you go that route. The glycol stuff isn't good for your motor. The methanol/water stuff depends on what area you live in.
A small drum of methanol lasts a while especially if you're mixing on your own and storing it properly.
