Default ethanol and anti lag?

so we all know the main problem with anti lag is the high exhaust temps that destroy turbos. an evo Buddy of mine says that ethanol has way lower exhaust temps, is it true? also would it still combust in the manifold to create anti lag but with lower temps and longer turbo life?

search FIRST, then PM!!!

tempereture is only part of the picture. The pressure spike/wave from the combustion process occuring in the exhaust is the main killer of the turbo and manifold. The temperatures weaken the metal.
Alcohol on a gasoline tune will have lower temps but taking advantage of the alcohol will require a retune and then temperatures should be back up to about/if not the same as gasoline.

It takes more alcohol to make the same power so just the tune plus if your injectors can't handle the increased volume you might also need to ugrade them.

but can it create low end torque and lower exhaust temps? also will it combust in a manifold?
