Default I need Meth kit recommendations

I don't know what to buy.
My good friend loves his alkycontrol system.

I will be buying actual methanol when I get it hooked up, not windshield washer fluid.
I also plan on having the tank in the trunk.
Thanks in advance!

Alkycontrol has nice braided lines with their kits. I have a snow performance kit and it works great. Far easier to install than a alky kit and works great but comes with plastic lines. You can always buy braided lines if you went that route and wanted that. I use 100% meth and no issues.

I use and like AIS. Mine has all SS braided lines and dual nozzles that I run 100% VP meth through. I have a few friends who have had issues with the Snow Performance pumps.

I had the AEM kit on my pro charged 08 SRT and it took a shit within a few months. I know people who have had success with the Snow Performance kit.

Meth is good! I used AIS for my triple nozzle kit. Rodney (IIRC) is awesome and his systems are spec'd to your setep. Good stuff for sure.

AIS is a great kit and Rodney will help square you away with your setup.

Well, I went with Alky Control.
The kit will come in stages, based on where I mount the pump and tank.
Then I will have the lines made and finish it up.

My buddy has had an alky kit on his car for 3 years with no issue, which swayed my mind in that direction.

Thanks all.

Yeah I don't think you could go wrong with AlkyControl. There may be better solutions out there, but theirs works and the people that have had them love them

@Zack

I am curious how you are planning to run the meth?

Typically you want to run it pre-MAF so you can take advantage of the cooler temp readings. With the MAF sitting right after the filter on a positive displacement blower car it makes that more difficult. Are you going to split off the IAT sensor and run it after the TB? When I was talking to Rodney at AIS he was suggesting to run both pre and post MAF.

A few recommendations...

Pre-IATS? Yes! Pre-MAF? No. Always separate those two out and do it the right way; especially on a Ford hot-wire MAFS. It simply isn't a good idea to spray before the heated filament on the MAFS. Heat shock on such a thin wire can easily lead to breakage of the filament and failure of the entire sensor. There is no need to subject it to more abuse than necessary.

In a PD blower setup, the proper place for the IATS to be would be post-blower so it can feed accurate/actual intake temps to the ECU after the air charge has been heated up due to being compressed.
