Ok have I completely lost my mind or does this sound fiesable to anyone else. what about useing alcohol for injection in to blown motors as opposed to water to stave off the detionation, figure that it is damn near inpossible to get a alcohol motor to detonate so why not richen up the mixture.
Plus it would certainly cool the intake charge

Hey man... alcohol injection is a great idea, try using 50% denatured alcohol in any water injection system (of course, check to see if the pump can handle alcohol) ... check out www.gnttype.org for more info (technical articles) ....

I used to run isopropol alcohol (rubbing alcohol) in the water injection on the 428CJ in my 4x4 and it worked well. I dont think it really made any more power but it didnt freeze when it got cold
