I ran a water alcohol mix in my supercharged 6.0L. It reduced detonation okay, but is not that good for a daily driver. You have to fill the tank too many times. BTW, I didn't think it would work a diesel, seeing as how a diesel responds to water?
I have heard of people running water injection and have read some articles on the web. I want to put this on my new engine, I was thinking about an Aquamist system. Hypermax sells them for diesels so I don't think it would be that bad.
Just looking to get the EGT's down some, so I can add more fuel.
Just curious, what kind of water injection system did you have? I have read where other people had a problem with pitting on the compressor wheel due to the fact the water hadn’t turned into a fine mist at the intake.
While I've never bothered with waterinjection on any D2
application, I firmly believe that the best results
are achieved with only a proper sized intercooler. I've
seen a lot of systems designed, but few that actually
made a huge difference as compaired to an intercooler.
I agree with JOEY D when he said Heath has a good one,
but even Bill himself will admit that an intercooler is
best. The opinion I gave about water injection causing
possible harm to turbos was from a few(quite a few)
turbocharged race engines I've built for various
customers and many experiments I've conducted trying
to get every last ounce of power from them. These engines
were all of the 8 second and faster variety, not street
motors, and not a single one showed any better numbers.
