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.
Curious why everyone seemed to shift away from propane? Is it cost prohibitive, or un reliable or what? Seems some big names have stopped making the kits. I have been considering adding propane to my stock 03. So what's the scoop?
Instead of shipping pre-mixed water & Meth around the country, I could save at least $3 a gallon by mixing my own 50/50 fluid.
What do I need to know before I try this. I have a local source for racing fuels. Certainly aware of the fire danger. Many years ago regularly mixed it with Nitro...
Anybody doing this? What size jet? Pulse width in the tune? or is this just a dumb idea? Let me know!
Basically I bought a makeshift dry nitrous kit from a buddy of mine. Theres a truck day at a local track coming up and I was wondering if anyone ever sprays up to the stock fuels limits, lets...
So I've got a race coming up with some buddies and I'd like to add some insurance. Currently I have a pretty stock set up with built trans, lift pump, big efi tune and water meth. Head studs are in the process. So I recently picked up some odds and ends for a try nitrous system(10lb bottle...
