    160 octane? I thought it was more like 113.

    So what are your plans/goals to achieve by switching over? Are you running a ton of boost or something?

    Pure methanol and ethanol are lower than that actually, right around 107 i believe. So I guess they add stuff to methanol race fuel then to boost it to 113. Unless its nitro methane were talking about, that would be very different

    It is doable, 1000 cc injectors work like 500 cc on methanol.

    So you need bigger injectors.

    Bigger fuel lines. And try to decrease the # of fuel pumps. The more parts involved the more the risk of failures.
