Default Meth vs. TMIC on R53

Hey all. Looking for your opinions on a Meth kit vs. an upgraded TMIC on an R53??
Examples of tried and tested would especially be helpful.

Cheers

My meth setup took a stop and go heat saturated intake temp from 132 to 66 on a 92 degree ambient day in less than a quarter mile blast on the hwy . No IC alone will do that well .

^^This^^

If it were for track use I'd say go with a good I/C , but for the street, W/M will far out perform even the best of our options for TMIC's.

Yeah, it's for street use. Light street use, too, I might add, I'm no racer. I just like an occasionally quick car. And the planned mods are far less sever than most people. 17% pulley, new air intake, new straight exhaust, and then a Meth kit/TMIC. So I won't be running really hot, but I'm interested in pampering the engine as much as possible. And Meth kits sound pretty wonderful all around.

It is from a company called Alky Control . They are not well known but they know the buisness . They have been the go to company for the Buick grand national crowd for a couple of decades now . More expensive than most but very high end components .

Yep that's me . The wasted guy was Adam Corrola and he was for real . The interview was for his " car-b-que " series and I got there at 10 am and he had a Corona in his hand already . He drank all day . He has a serious man cave / garage there with some very cool rides .

Here it is from back in 2011. This was when I realized that I needed to lose some weight I didn't realize that this was actually germane to the thread as he quizzes me on the meth kit .

He has done at least 100 of these , here is a link to the rest.
