Thanks for the great info.
I really appreciate you piping up on this for me.
I don't recall exactly what the issue was with the O2 sensor setup, maybe it was just cost.
Could you direct me to some resources for components?
I priced the EGT system as a "kit" and it was pretty pricey.
What I ended up doing was I bought a monitor, the probes and some pipe couplers that worked just fine for bungs.
I probably saved 65 or 70% by doing it that way.
I don't have collected headers so this might not work for me at all unless I was willing to put a bung and probe in each of the zoomies.
I used to have an Omega catalog that has a lot of that sort of thing.
I don't understand the part about:
I thought methanol less sensitivity to pre-ignition and this is why you can run methanol on motors with a compression ratio of up to around 19:1.RednGold86Z wrote:
2) Methanol has a pre-ignition sensitivity of LESS THAN 0! This means it doesn't take much of a hot spot to nearly instantly destroy your plugs/pistons/exhaust valves.
A gas engine usually needs octane greater than that of pump gas much above about 10:1.
I'm not for a second suggesting you're wrong, I'm just not following.
As far as ignition timing I've found what you said to be spot on.
I don't seem to run any more timing on methanol than I ran on gas.
I can but it doesn't make any more power.
This motor seems to be "happiest" with EGT numbers around 1200F.
Does that sound about right?
I've heard people say it shouldn't be above 1100F
All in all, very good stuff.
Did you get that info from a website?
If so I'd love to see it.
My cylinder heads have room for the 3/4" reach plugs but has the hole for 14mm.
