$1000 for a kit!!!!sadly people would think this is cutting edge tech and would gladly buy it.
http://jcwinnie.biz/wordpress/?p=1567A turbocharger is added to produce more power. The ethanol injection system with the turbocharger would give a driver more power than a conventional engine of the same size.
The higher pressures and temperatures of a turbocharged engine can lead to a problem known as knock, which occurs when the fuel and air in the engine explode prematurely, hurting performance and potentially damaging the engine.
Cohn said his group?s technology avoids that problem by injecting ethanol into the engine when knock is likely to occur. The ethanol vaporizes and cools the fuel-air mixture, keeping it from exploding until the engine is ready.
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006...l_direct_.htmlThe Car Boys2 note that direct injection of ethanol in a turbocharged gasoline-fueled engine would boost the overall fuel octane rating to more than 130. The high octane rating allows the engine to use massive levels of turbo boost without the need for lowering the engine?s compression to reduce knock. The Ethanol Boosting Systems solution uses small quantities of ethanol. The MIT researchers expect that a two- to six-gallon, auxiliary, ethanol tank would last for two to four months of driving.
Hey I want my soul back LOLsmokin-ricers said:Today about 40 % of all the fuel that Brazilians pump into their vehicles is ethanol
Yes but it has a higher octane than a comparable priced "dino fuel", for most motors its not needed, but high performance cars bennifit(higher compression either static or dynamic)pphilps said:People do realize that ethanol sucks right? It is only 80% as efficent as dino fuel........ Water injection works very very well!

Also Japan just suspended their forced conversion to ethanol as it was driving corn and other grain prices up dramatically due to demand/competition.
give up d00d...this is srtforums...gnat turner said:You guys are completely off topic. This thread is not about using ethanol as fuel. It's about using ethanol to increase boost in gasoline engines.
