Who is YOUR "meth dealer"? haha

No, but really, is there somewhere I am overlooking? I'm strongly eyeing a Vishnu Procede Meth Kit but live in Southern Alabama, and am unaware of where to get the stuff.

Davis Oil Company in Dothan says they have meth on their website.

Would've never guessed Amazon. I'll check out the place in Dothan, that'd be awesome if it works out. I live close by.

Methanol is available in many forms. You can even use many windshield wiper fluids.

I'd stick with m1 by vp race fuels (99.9% purity) or similar companies with intentions for performance. You can go to their web site for contact info, call your regional office and they'll give you dealers in the area. I'm sure there are many speed shops in Alabama who have it

Really????? This would be a cheaper alternative to puchasing it for 4-5 dollars a gallon.

You should run boost juice. It's pre-mixed 49/51 meth water. Much safer than running 100% meth which is extremely flammable and corrosive. Just take a visit to the n54 forum and glance at all the engine fires going on. You can have it delivered from summit:

Washer fluid varies. Many are about 20% meth. Some say the cleaning agent can clog nozzles.

My dealer works in the fracking industry in the oil sands of Northern Alberta......free 5 gallon jugs of 100% meth. All I have to do is dilute to 49/51.

Go to a paint store or home depot - then just dilute with water to the percentage you are looking for. Personally not a fan of using washer fluid

Hey TMR, are you running 100% meth through the Vishnu WW-mount kit?

All great info. Really looking forward to getting this started. I'm not sure if I could find a wiper fluid that was even 50% meth? I should be able to find this stuff in one of the places mentioned, especially Home Depot.

I would do this and not any windshield wiper fluid or a 50% dillution. The vishnutuning website recommends a 70/30 mix of meth/water. I go with that and my engine hasn't exploded or caught on fire yet. Knock on wood.

Quotes from the FAQ from www.vishnutuning.com:
"How much does it cost to fill the meth tank up?
Most race fuel stores will sell methanol for just $3/gallon. If methanol is not readily available to you, denatured alcohol (sourced for any hardware store) can be used."

"Do I run pure methanol or do I mix it with water?
We recommend running a 70/30 mix of methanol/distilled water. A 50/50 mixture can be used but it will not result in maximum power gains."

After the many 335 fires, I run 50/50 since I have a WW-mount tank and I track my car. Running higher meth concentrations is worth only a couple HP and dramatically increases the risk of an engine fire in the event of a leak. And the WW fluid containers are notorious for leaking. Mine did.

Ive probably been running a 90/10 mix. I saw someone wrap the WW tank filler tube with anti-heat wrap. I may think on doing that. I still love how well the car runs on meth. I was at a meet yesterday and kept telling people, you should get meth and they look at me like im on meth.

Truth is, there is only so much power you will get on 91 octane and only one meth kit available for the M3 that works well. I did the flash tune thing and it doesnt compare to how the meth feels.
