S/c 480 methanol injection worth it?

Postby GGolden » Sun Jun 04, 2017 8:55 pm

I have a supercharged 480 lycoming and was wondering if the methanol injection works to keep cht's down to add more boost without frying cylinders? If anybody has done this let me know if it's worth it.

Was a poster that used to be on here all the time who went by Farmboy that has a great running SC480 that was going to be putting on a water/methanol injection system on his but not sure if he got it going or not. Might try to contact him and see what input he might have. He's a nice guy and will help you out if he can
