    Yeah my car needs an underbody wash.
    I should have zip tied the calipers up out of the way, one fell when I was drilling out one of the old bushings.It swung down on the brake hose hitting me right in the mouth, I was spitting blood, good thing I wasn't spitting teeth. lol good times.

    What is that in the trunk in the spare tire area? What does it do?

    That's a methanol tank for meth injection. It cools the intake air temperatures and raises the octane level of the fuel, which helps reduce detonation.

    Ohh ok! I am not familiar with meth injection. From my limited knowledge, isn't timing the injection a PITA or is there a simplified method?

    I have a variable boost controller, which can be set to kick in a different levels of boost.
    Or I can tie into the maf and have it kick in based on the signal from that.

It's alittle darker than Anthracite that most people seem to get, which is also a nice color.
    Usually they charge about 40-50 per rim including sandblasting.
    Those rims look f'n awesome. Where is Quick Coatings at? Please tell me it's close to NE Indiana. Sorry. I'm dumb I don't know where tha peg is lol.
    I'd love to get my stockers done in this color. Just to have a pair for something different.

    Lol sorry man, it's in Winnipeg Canada. But I'm sure a local powder coater has or can get the same color.

    Do you know how much it takes off the intake temps? For instance, is there an equilibrium intake temp that you were seeking for the meth injection? Does it inject more at idle? I'm trying to understand when to incorporate such a system for a SC build and the benefits of it - the heat balance and protection it gives. Do you notice cooler engine temps, oil temps etc?

    Re: Blower build w/pics

    I'm not sure how much it will cool my set up, as I haven't run it yet. However it is usually very significant.
    There is no injection happening at idle, it's usually set to start injection at a certain level of boost, ie. 5psi.
    Here is a link that may help you, I used this link just because that is where the majority of my system is from, minus my contoller, it's from snow performance.

    Awesome, thanks! Do you have pics where the injection is going into the intake? What size line did you use?
