What size nozzle(s) were you using for 19psi?
Single -12 (756 ml/min) and 50/50 mix of distilled water and M1 methanol. Richens my A/F up by about half of a point.

Allows me to safely run 12-14 deg of timing at 19 psi on pump gas on a 10:1 motor

MAF controller thing mean it only works on Fords? I've been looking at a Snow Stage 2 kit for my BMW X5M but I've completely NEW to ever having used meth, how it's sprayed, tuning for it, etc.

That controller will work off of a boost reference or MAF reference. You can choose either one by turning the setting knob to either Boost or MAF. The MAF reference will work with anything that is a 0-5V reference. I believe your BMW has a MAF sensor which is a 0-5V signal so you should be good, or boost from the terbows.

I run mine off of my MAF and have been happy with the results. I plan on running it also on my future single turbo build on the truck. I hear that turbo charged motors see greater benefits over supercharged motors.

It is sprayed through a nozzle that atomizes it in your intake. The controller will see a reference such as boost or MAF signal and ramp the duty cycle of the pump according to the adjustment knobs on the controller.

It provides two things, a cooling benefit and an octane benefit. You don't have to be tuned to take advantage of the cooling benefits of water/meth but you will run a slightly richer Air/Fuel if you aren't tuned for it. If you get tuned for it, you can take advantage of the octane benefit by running a little more timing. So the benefits are two-fold, and if you can get tuned for it... the more performance you'll see out of it.

I keep looking at this without pulling the trigger. Will it work with a BA2400 MAF?

All these bumps and no price adjustment. Has the pump been tested, why isn't it being used by the OP considering the claimed gains, etc?

No price adjustments and I asked if it's been tested yet. It's mentioned in this thread that turbos like meth better than superchargers, so how's switching to turbo make it irrelevant...

Methanol + Turbo = More power!!

I have a lot of experience with turbo/methanol setups. Keep it and use it on your turbo setup. If not....GLWS

if there was a price adjustment the post would've reflected it.if wouldn't have been tested,that also would've been posted.im running e85 don't need it truck makes massive power now
