I have been really interested in using water injection to cool down the cylinder temps. I KNOW im going to do it to my Gen Coupe, who else?
Oh yeah water/meth injection is on my list if I decide to go the way of big boost. In fact at the SEMA show I talked with the SNOW guys and they had some cool stuff and they have done a lot of stuff with the EVO and SRT crowds already so it should be relatively straight forward.I have been really interested in using water injection to cool down the cylinder temps.

Yeah water/meth injection adds a layer of complexity to the picture but it can be a useful mod if done right. It may still be something I take a look at in the future though.No meth for me!!!!
I prefer to stick to pump gas only. I'll just upgrade to a bigger turbo to meet my goals and keep the EGT's low.
It depends on a several factors.For those of you in the know on this, how often do you need to refill. It would seem like that would get annoying after a while. I am pretty much ignorant to how much spray is used though. Thanks for any explanations.
Post anything you want for those of us that are lazy or haven't had the time to research yet, Thanks.I've been doing some research on these kits, seems like a win/win situation, just getting them setup might be a pain if you've never done it before but still not hard. Lots of info out there.
Ahh youngling... I will try to enlighten you in a few sentences:so............. what is it?
hehe, completely ignorant of this topic.
enlighten me. anyone?
ah.. so then whats the downside? i mean if it has all these cool effects, why doesnt everyone do it?Ahh youngling... I will try to enlighten you in a few sentences:
Water injection and Methanol injection actually accomplish two different things but they are often combined into one system. Methanol is basically a fuel that has a high octane level, it acts as a detonation inhibitor. Water acts as a cooling agent that lowers air intake temps. Both added together can allow you to run more boost in your car or be more aggressive in your tune.

Hope that helps a little
Just off of the top of my head:ah.. so then whats the downside? i mean if it has all these cool effects, why doesnt everyone do it?
Cool! Your kindness is appreciated.. lolthanks for the enlightenment.
in return, i shall enlighten others with news of the new hyundai equus. (in the appropriate thread)
