How water methanol injection works. Water methanol injection is used typically on high powered vehicles to assist with reducing the likelihood of knock, and thus allowing for higher compression ratios, more timing advance, and higher boost. Typically mixes are 50/50, with both water and methanol playing important but different roles to help aid in producing more power. Ultimately, the power comes from tuning as running water/meth essentially raises the octane level of the fuel used. There are production cars which have used this in the past.

This episode of Engine Masters presented by AMSOIL delivers the goods many viewers have asked for as we test the power of straight dual exhaust with no crossover pipe versus using an H-pipe versus an X-pipe. Will the old bench-racing stories come true, or is it all hocus-pocus? We find out using a basic 5.3L GM LS3 engine then precisely spell out the effect these exhaust-system modifications have on horsepower and torque. Engine Masters is supported by Auto Meter, Mr. Gasket, Earl’s Vapor Guard hose, and now Permatex!

In the early 1970s, Porsche found itself in need of a street car that would allow the fellows in Stuttgart to meet homologation rules for the Group 4 Special GT series. What resulted was the 1973 2.7 Carrera RS, a brawny brother to the 911. With its ducktail rear spoiler, big brakes, and flared rear fenders, the car was an instant classic. Indeed, the car was so popular that Porsche opted to go well beyond the 500-car minimum required for homologation, ultimately producing more than 1500 of the Carrera RS model in 1973. Over the past 40 years, the Carrera RS has earned a reputation as the greatest dual-purpose Porsche ever produced, the very essence of balanced quickness. In 1973, however, owing to some killjoys' concerns about bumpers and emissions and excess glee, the RS was not certified for importation into the United States. And yet, somehow, four of these cars snuck across the border into the US. One of them, serial number 1309, ended up in the hands of famed race car driver and Porsche distributor Vasek Polek. Number 1309 now makes its home with Mr. Mark Haddawy, who seldom misses a chance to sling it through the canyons near his home in Los Angeles, California. As Mark points out, the RS, despite being a 40-year-old car, still holds its own against its modern streetmates. After all, even by today's standards, the RS is fast: it covers zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and sports a top speed of 150 mph. The mystique of the 2.7 RS, however, goes beyond sheer statistics and, at times, can defy description. "I've driven a lot of different sports cars," says Mark. "There's something about the RS that's magical. It's definitely more than the sum of all of its parts." For now, then, we'll just call the RS what it is: a race car for the street.
