Home depot, pure methanol goes under the name denatured alcohol. Much cheaper that way.

Major exhaust leak.
I let it idle for 15 minutes and smoke appeared.
My gut feeling is manifold to turbo.
I machined the manifold flange. Turbo flange was reasonably flat (gasket should take up the imperfections).
I need to get her up in the air again and observe.

Regardless I drove it into boost. No boost controller (intake charge direct to wastegate). Made 10 psi and felt quite strong but was way too loud.

Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...
