pros...cheaper more tourqe(??) burns cooler (burn me down suker!!!) did I say CHEAPER!!!!!
cons absorbs water & is more corrosive!!! needs a good top lube!!


What compreshion is needed?

I have rum it with as low as 8-9 to1 BUT the more the better!!!!!!

Are cam profiels differnd between Gas and alcohol?

not really different just need to allow for more "wet" flow

Is there a large gaine or Gas using a carb?

??????????? I have used methanol with a carb & injected!!!

Thanks

any more questions???

I belive I will get a 850 set up for it and give it a try running 12.5 to one so it should like it.

Do you guys know how high of a comp ratio you can run on methanol? Is 15:1 good to go? I will be making the switch to alky this winter also.
