    Need ideas for boost controller catch can.

    I keep running into issues with my methanol setup corroding boost controllers, tried a few and one with s.s. parts, no good. Right now Im running the can from a mity vac vacuum pump, but that seems to leak under 20psi. I will probably fab something up this winter but Im looking for something to get me through some more track passes. Any ideas for an off the shelf catch can I can use?

    I had 6 nozzles in port injection style in the runners and never had a boost control solenoid fail (trust old Blitz SSBC), may be worth re-tinking your nozzle location?.

    ^I concur. Mine was located between the hose barb fitting and TB, so the AEM solenoid was never really exposed to or drenched in the mist. I can only imagine how quick something for that purpose would fill up though. How did your previous attempts look like out of curiosity?

    why not run the boost controller before the meth nozzle?

    Well my meth nozzle is 6 inches from the throttle body on the y-pipe. I just combined my brake and clutch booster so I now have a free spot on the plenum. Have you guys ran meth after the plenum with good results, everything I read says before the t.b. about 6 inches?

    I tried the boost just a few inches before the meth nozzle but it looks stupid and only slowed the process a little, when boost hits everything is pressurized so unless its a long ways away it doesnt matter.
