interest in lnf throttle body spacer with meth port(s)

so iv tried a few different spacers for our cars. I need one because of my turbo setup and maf relocate to spray meth. they are nice, but they all seemed to have the same problem. everyone iv tried has the meth port to long, so when the meth sprays it hits the walls of the port and comes shooting out into the intake manifold like a garden hose, which will hydrolock ur engine real quick. so every one I have tried I have had to modify so it will work properly, and give a full and proper spray pattern. so, my question is, if I were too get some designed and made properly, that I would personally test to make sure they work correctly, because I don't want anything less then perfect operation and I would never get anything made for anyone any less then that, would like to know if there is any interest in this too actually take the time to make a prototype for starters, and more if there is enough people who want one. let me know

Does it really make a difference if you put it 6-8 inches from the tb or just use a spacer? I was thinking of getting a ottp one at first

..

The 6-8" is ideal, but ZZP puts the MAF relocate right in that spot on the charge pipe they offer so it isn't possible. A meth plate with a recessed boss for the meth nozzle is ideal for those cases, be great for Tom to offer those. I removed my BYT spacer just for that reason, and had intended to modify my port, but went 5th injector instead. I feel on E47 that will give me 90%of the benefits of a good meth kit.

I don't really think so. it does the same thing either way. mine is going fine with the spacer.

Meth is unsafe period if the nozzle or system fails without a fail safe.

A single nozzle just like a 5th injector will never properly distribute fluid evenly to the cylinders.

It needs to be injected early enough that it has completely vaporized. At that point the charge is cooled and should be distributed very even. If it's turning back into a liquid after injection, that sounds like it was a terrible system to begin with. It needs to be under a very high pressure and very atomized. Your not getting the power from the fluid, your getting the power from the cooler charge and ability to run a better timing map.

There are several very good systems out there that are safe and do as designed.... Then there's the DIY idiots like the guy that used a windshield washer pump.
