Most tuners don't realize it's going to boil.. I've had this happen to me up here in New Jersey. One factor is that most guys are running an FMIC or storing the methanol in the trunk in the IC water tank. With an FMIC you're probably not going to get the same high temps as with the TMIC - which does a fine job of keeping all of the heat under the hood.

SMC doesn't even suggest running pure meth - but methanol will make the most power so that's why I run it.
