    Short answer , no.

    Well , it's not worth it. Anything alcohol injected will require dropping the oil out after every run. Like methol. It breaks down the oil. I tried the setup on one of my v8 turbo builds. You could look at water injection, but the cost of bolt on intercooler setup I would stick to them.

    First ask yourself why you would need it. Are going to want to run a whole bunch of timing? As in enough timing that the setup would require race fuel?

    Most of the time the only reason people run water/meth injection in cars is to raise the octane rating of pump gas, therefore avoiding having to run more expensive/harder to find race gas. The cooling effects of water/meth injection is kind of just a bonus.

    With all the cooling mods and intercooler setups available to us, I don't see the point in messing with meth, UNLESS, you are running a bunch of timing and don't want to use race fuel.
