This might be true on your platform, but not on many others. What if your meth system quits or runs out in the middle of WOT. Boom.

I ran meth in the SS and it worked great, but it is a cruiser/race car, not a daily driver. Since then, injector technology and tuning have come a long way and it's possible to run E85 and make more power with less complication or hassle. The odds of two systems failing is higher than one.
