I dunno! The 98 octane we ran at AMA was pretty bitchin. WAY better results from it vs the 100 octane pump stuff. They locked all the pumps and everything. You have to buy your fuel, tires, everything from AMA at the event. $$$$$

This video, that's over 50 PSI of boost and he's got the 4-motion AWD on that thing too. That musta been a hell of a retrofit!!
would have been great for my car, i was running 14 lbs through a non intercooled blower and that thing sure made some heat

likely its not worth it for the bike unless you had a built motor and really wanted to play with the timing a bit

There is only 1 E85 pump within 90 miles of Waco, and it's in Bellmead(waco).

Edit- i lied there's one at least 1 hour south and north of waco.

What kind of increases do you get with vp. Ss legal
Just curious, i'm not trying to run it. My friends dad runs it in his Harley.


Since you know a lot about fuels and stuff. Why is a water/methanol injection system not street legal?

I know zero about water/methanol injection, but I assume its to lower combustion temperature and reduce the tendancy to detonate. I would assume that its not legal because it would alter your emissions profile sufficiently such that you wouldn't be able to meet emission standards (even the 49 state ones) due to excessive uncombusted hydrocarbons and CO. That's completely a guess though since I dont know.

I only use VP at the strip, unless I have some extra, then I run it in my quad or premix it with Castor for my dirt bike. And i use Ultimate 4.4 which is good for about a tenth or tenth and a half at the strip, usually. Otherwise, at the track or on the street, I use regular old 91 octane pump gas.
