If your that dead set on an air to air front mount have one plumbed in.
I don't know why people think Meth injection is the boogy man. What exactly is your problem with it?
Here are some of the advantages of Meth:
Meth provides a cooler intake charge vs standard intercooling.
Meth provided a octane boost, standard intercooling does not.
Meth will quench the cylinder and piston, slow the flame front and reduce knock by preventing preignition of your unburnt fuel at wot, standard intercooling does not.
Meth uses a jet injection nozzel vs a large volume intercooler that will cause your air charge to expand (pressure/efficiency loss) and then re-pressurize back into the intake piping (more pressure and efficiency loss).
No heat soak with Meth.
Meth is not dependent on outside air temps.
Meth is not dependent on the air flow over your intercooler (how fast your going) Meth is there as soon as your into boost.
And there are many other benefits of a proper Meth setup.
Before anyone asks what if the system fails. There are many safety features that are in the system and there to protect your engine and just like any other high hp setup maintenance and tuning is key.
In the end it's everyone choice but Meth does have it's advantages when used properly and safely.
