Default I got the aquamist water/meth system on my 1.9TDI.

Its great and it works super.... lots more power... and torque... on my xtreemly tuned TDI it adds 45nm of torque and around 22HP... to 28HP.

And the EGTs are lowered...

Pegbox, if I'm wrong I apologize. I was thinking that car was running nitrous along with a propane system for added fuel. Nitrous alone on a stock car would do very little if anything because the lack of fuel on a stock car.

Wow, 22-28 hp is a really good power increase VortexNL. Do you run the water meth all the time or just when you want the extra umph?

Yes it used Propane as well with the NOS, it was a bit of " everything chucked at it " kind of machine but it worked very well.


Some detailed picks of a water/meth install would be excellent..

I've heard of water and methanol being sprayed on the intercooler to make it colder. Are you sure the system you're thinking of injects it directly into the intake? I would think that to be very dangerous in a diesel.

yeah, you just drill and tap the intake and there is a nozzles that goes right there. They use water meth injection on all the diesel trucks for drag races and sled pulls. And is supposedly very safe. it cools things way down and adds power.

Some guys run certain brands of windshield washer fluid as well.. The guys at snow performance can fill you in.. The kit I have is boost activated. You can preset it to spray at a given boost level.

so do you run the system all the time then, or usually? Or do you just use it when you want more power?

Turbo gassers use water injection as an anti-detonation device so that they can run up their boost to really high pressures. Sounds like most use a 50/50 mix of water and windshield washer fluid (Windshield washer fluid is a water, alcohol, and detergent mix), and the water injection pump is usually wired into the ignition to engage at about 4000 rpm or whatever rpm they choose. No need for water injection at lower rpm because the turbo is not producing enough boost to necessitate using it.

Thats the what i know about turbo gas engines, but i dont see why this wouldnt work/be beneficial do someone who wants to really turn up the boost on their turbo-diesel. Like a gas engine i would suspect the water injection would serve as an anti-detonation device so that boost pressure could be pushed to the limit. Sounds like some others here know of real world examples.

Ever notice your engine running really smooth on a misty or foggy day when the air is saturated with water?

A kit that is boost activated would be very nice to have! Any ideas how I can make my own?

Parleys Diesel is where I've been looking at possibly getting a water meth kit http://www.parleysdieselperformance....duct/SNO-47000 , it looks like a reservoir, pump, solenoid, a bunch of hoses and a couple of wires and crimp connectors. I don't know how hard it would be to get some of those part, but some aren't hard to find.
