Alcohol racing

A friend of mine that runs alcohol on his eagle talon turbo and i understand it from that aspect, but i have a few questions for a rotory that maybe some of you can answer.

First of all, for those of you reading this, do you recommend running alcohol vs. nitrous?

secondly, is this something i can run on an n/a engine? i am trying to have some fun with it before i swap for TII

last of all, where is the more reputable place to buy a kit for an alcohol injection system?

There is a guy on the forum named Resource. I think he is running Methanol. You could try pm-ing him.

First of all, nitrous is a power adder in itself. Methanol just allows you to run more boost (very useful). So that means there would be no use for it on an NA engine. I am by no means an expert though. I am sure resource will respond some time.

Methanol alone will add a little power but u need 2 time the fuel as gas so u need bigger injectors or more
