    Yes especially for this MK1 kit. Gadget is impressed. Im not #s chasing but now I'm curious to see what an E85 blend would do. The ucon has the wot mixture on the rich side so that would help lean it out and add more timing

    The methanol / water injection would cool your intake temps up to 150°, advancing your timing.
    It would turn your 93 octane essentially into 116 race fuel. Feed the beast, she needs 116! WHOOP WHOOP
    I run Marine fuel, 93 octane non ethanol.
    Haven't heard the Taco tick since...

    So now you have peaked my interest and im looking at the snow kits, didnt realize they can make that much of a difference. Where did you mount the tank in taco?

    Spoiler alert, you already have a tank...
    I used my windshield washer fluid tank, as it was the most convenient inconvenience! Lol
    I had to buy a larger bulkhead fitting to cover the hole that the pump left, but after applying a drop of sealant it was good to go!
