Ok on a single stage kit running the methanol with a small shot pretty much allows you to leave the timing alone and use the spray. Down side to that is of the meth doesn't work the timing will be to much and bad stuff happens.

With a dual stage kit running meth will pretty much be for surpressing anything that would happen on the kits. IMO water meth is for
Boosted engs. If you run spray I would suggest just pulling the correct amount of timing for the hit you run. Using methanol and nitrous is for the people that want to push the envelope which can end badly.

That's what I thought, every time I look it up it comes up for boosted engines. but I've been seeing more and more people talking about using them together so I was curious.

I've been running the Snow Stage 2 kit with a single shot for over 2 years now without any issues. They both come full on at 2700/2800. Sometimes I have to lean out the W/M if it bogs badly.

Also, 4 degrees ADVANCED timing with CO2 to chill the air intake and the 112 race fuel.

But I still keep my fingers crossed and

I ran a snow single stage wtr/meth on my NA 03 on the street/strip. Had it set up using a vacuum switch instead of a pressure switch. I was experimenting with timing and had knock I was trying to be rid of. I have since reduced timing and disconnected it. May hook it back up at some point for the hell of it. Note: on a NA engine using vacuum you need to use a window switch to arm it and the vacuum switch to trigger it otherwise it'll run with just the ignition turned on.
