Cool What I did with Methanol today..oops

I drive Ford trucks, I like some mustangs. But the 70 Mach 1 is not as quick as the 70 GS Stage 1. I own, since high school, a 69 GranSport 2DR hardtop. I dropped in a 455 with racing pistons and a ta118 cam (you guys wont know what that is) blueprinted and all the goodies about 6 years ago before kids and real responsibilities. Today I dumped in 5 gallons of gas and 5 of methanol. I forgot the characteristics of methanol and low and behold she did not like it one bid. I forgot in order to run the methanol you have to open them jets up real big like. Ran like ****** gas. Took out 5 gallons of mixture and added supreme and well see what she will do tomarrow at DMV for the emmisions test.
