Yep, I can imagine how you'd pronounce that. Do it in your next video!

I have a Snow system and it works well. I have a turbo though and I have heard people comment that it is not good for superchargers as it will wash the coating off the vanes in the supercharger. I have never had an SC car so can't confirm that one way or the other.

interesting i could always inject after supercharger and i am wondering since you said vanes if they are talking about a centrifugal SC like Paxton and not the roots type blower with rotors but any way i will do more research on it so it is working right

My DD has an aftermarket SC that is an Eaton roots type blower. I put a methanol injection setup on it that sprayed in front of the SC.

After a while boost started dropping off, checked the rotors and they were clean aluminum, looked like they were brand new.

I would not have used the methanol injection if I had known what it would do. Is cost me about $1000.00 to have it rebuilt
and the rotors and rotor bores coated by The High Speed Lab, they do great work.

do you spay water / meth anymore after rebuild as i went to there site and it sound like they are saying there coating will take the abuse or are you spaying post blower as i think is the safest way although i did see another shop talk about older Eaton blowers coating that was not good enough and the new Eaton blowers have a better coating

I don't use the methanol after getting it rebuilt, didn't want to take a chance with the new coating.

It's my DD so I just backed off the boost to run without the alcohol.

well it looks like the blower will need to come off so i can drill and make it after blower injection and how i am thinking is 2 nozzles one on each side of the blower

Ok the Sptronics is working correctly now now i just need to tune the engine but it is to cold & slippery to drive the car i would bring it to the dyno but there is not one close to where i live closest is about 100 miles from me and i did learn a few thing from the online tuning school but it is basically the same as tuning always was get the timing and fuel correct you are just doing it with a computer now and not jets , weights , springs & timing light you don't have to read plugs anymore as you can see what the AFR is on the computer and you don't need need to play with weights and springs to get the right ignition curve you even have a knock sensor to let you know you have to much timing

Sounds like a chainsaw... which I guess is appropriate as I'm afraid I'd probably end up in a tree.
