Meth and Water injection?

Ok, so I just heard about this from a friend a few weeks ago. He suggests that until Im able to do the Jackson supercharger, I do a Meth and Water injection? what are your guys thoughts on this?

Itll be about a year or more til I am able to get the supercharger in the mean time I was gonna do a euro-r intake (i read is better than the skunk2) and possibly a meth-air injection which I have seen aem kits in the 300-400 dollar range..

oh, and a tune is probably coming pretty soon.

thoughts? input?
for everyones info, right now I have an AEM v2 intake, DC headers, 2.5 inch magnaflow exhaust all the way back.

thanks as always. you guys are great.

Re: Meth and Water injection?

why are you going to get a euro-r, just to switch it out for a supercharger in the near future? just dont waste your money on stuff you dont need and you can get a supercharger that much sooner

I wish that was the case, but I can justify a couple hundred bucks since Im killing it with ot lately, whereas the supercharger has to wait til after I buy my wife her house, thats the deal. She wont care what I do with my car and truck after she has a house! LOL

plus, its nothing to take off the intake and put on the supercharger and then sell the intake... wouldn't you rather have the HP now AND later? LOL plus I have the benefit of having a lifted 4runner for the winter so I wont have problems with working on stuff like that.

What do you think of the Meth Water injection stuff? Word I hear is its alot safer and cheaper than nitrous. although not as powerful.

Re: Meth and Water injection?

well the euro-r is like 350. then its a lot of custom fab sh*t to make it fit. or the rosko racing one is 500 or something like that. and its a PITA to get the manifold haha. but its up to you. as for the injection it is safer. this kid kyle i know just JRSC his 4th gen and hes meth injected. it didnt really help with hp but it did add a good bit of torque

Injecting Meth probably only makes the car seem faster, not really what i'd call a gain, and its bad for your health. Theres no hope with dope. lol.

But now, methanol water injection = goodness.

Re: Meth and Water injection?

Look up procharger kits. They take turbos and convert them to supercharger kits (running off accessory belt), you keep the euro-r and get reliable boost. It'd be custom, probably give you a discount for donating your car for fitting, :hint:. Been looking into one for my Mona, but I'm cheap as hell, and don't need 407/whp-457/tq

Re: Meth and Water injection?

Chris, google Vortech and CAPA. You'll thank me later ok mate?

Op, water/methanol injection is not a performance booster in itself, but something that supports more power (like an upgraded fuel pump) The injection of water or methanol lowers the temperature of the pressurised intake charge, which is where the power increase comes from. Doing this in a NA application will yeild only a minor improvement.

Re: Meth and Water injection?

meth injection is a great way to cool the air going in your engine. but something to keep in mind about meth is that its always running on your setup. you may have a concern if it stops working or you run out of juice while you're driving your car with boost.

a procharger type supercharger can probably support a intercooler and should keep you cooler than the roots type supercharger that the jackson racing uses if you have a temp concern.

why not turbo? just wondering :) gl

^^ this!! ^^

meth is MAINLY used in FI applications, where the IAT's are drastically higher than NA prior to meth, then the drop in intake temp's is much more drastic once the meth is introduced.
NA, the difference is gonna be marginal.
