The egt is where it shines from a performance standpoint

yup for sure. why the hell better then a tb spacer that is super inconsistent. since direct port, I have not seen one knock retard event on a pull. where ass with the spacer, every other pull. im gonna even go as far as saying id do this over lower charge pipe. since the manifold is designed to flow air not water, water will not move through it the way air does. direct eliminates that issue.

Definitely, agree with you. The meth/water mix doesn't vaporize as quickly as fuel or nitrous (already gas) so it's flow is going to go the shortest route and not mix well. I'm going to assume the KR you saw before was cylinders 1 and 4?

It was mostly 3 but it was random for the most part

so another meth system update. with the old tb spacer I couldn't run a gap bigger then .025 or id get spark blow out, in one cylinder. Probably the one that was getting most of the meth lol. I threw in stock plugs today with .028 gap. worked 100%. no breaking up at all. so I guess that's a win. im gonna keep it there. that's what I ran with my zfr. gonna stay with stock plugs. car runs smoother. 1 step colder works fine, keeps exhaust temp down 100 extra degrees, but ill do more checking on that one. 100 is a lot, but not enough too use em, especially with meth and me not getting any knock. even with 40C intake temps. which is impressive.
