Cooling your air to feed more air density into a cylinder or using an oxidizer all comes down to more power.
Meth is not used to "cool your engine". Its for power just like N2O.
Not trying to be a dick just lets clear some things up.

For the same affect you could place a small intercooler inline with your intake. I would prefer that since then you can claim N/A on pump gas and run in that class.

I've been using E-85 in an 05 GTO and 2000 Camaro SS for years. I've had the GTO fuel tank apart 3 times, swapping a Walbro fuel pump and fixing......., the point is there are absolutely no issues or problems using E-85 in these cars. There is no deterioration of O-rings, there is no rust or water in the tank. All cars made in the last 20 years have been built with the requirement that they may have E10 put in the fuel tank. It is rediculous to assume that they were designed for E10 but that E20 would make them fall apart. Or E85.....
E-85 does not kill baby seals or the spotted owl. It does have 105 octane, helps cool the intake charge, and is American made.
I did use it in my chain saw once when I was out of gas. The fuel line melted and fell off inside the tank. Do not use this stuff on rubber. Modern cars fuel lines are plastic.
