Nozzle drip and corrosion?

I'm curious... When the car is shut off, will the heat from the engine compartment, cause the remaining methanol that is sitting in the line to pressurize slightly and dribble out of the nozzle, or will it just evaporate? Being that methanol is corrosive, and some up-pipe's are made of mild steel, and intercooler aluminum...

I think methanol will more likely act like brake cleaner, that flashes and doesnt stay. Especially if it was to dribble on a hot IC. Plus the Hago nozzle have a little spring inside of them to inhibit the drip.

Its a non issue :)

Water on the other hand will stay there a long time.

Have you got more pics on a sight, or can you email me and give me the low down on your car. Looks awesome. How did you come up with it?
