The car in the video uses it only for cooling purposes as the massive increased power from the NOS/Propane mix causes a huge rise in temperature.

You have to be very careful with any form of water injection that it atomises correctly. Hardly any spare room in there for water droplets...

Be careful, choose a really good quality spray jet - and the results can be excellent

Isn't the VW Rally TDI using water injection?

Making your own kit isn't hard to do at all. I made my own system before on my old TD and it worked rather well. I used a nozzle from an oil furnace ( Make sure its a stainless steel, solid cone pattern and the lowest flow they have ) the pressure switch I got from Napa ( adjustable ) and the pump is an agricultural chemical sprayer pump. The tank can be just about anything you want. After that its a matter of adjusting the switch to come on when you want. ~ 10psi is usually good. Tons of info on the net about various DIY kits. I ran 50/50 water meth in the winter and plain distilled water in the summer. Btw, if you use w/w fluid, use it straight up. Its already about 50/50 mix.

Hi Vortex, car looks awesome, very neat under bonnet install !!

Right after the intercooler... you won't see it from the pics because its on the back side. I do need to realocated my temp and pressure sensor to get more power out of the system.

Default water/methanol injection question

Ok well i have the opportunity to jump in on a group buy of water/methanol injection kits from snow performance. I am seriously considering getting one.

I am wondering if anyone on here has used water/meth injection with their TDI (or know someone who has)... I am curious to hear what kind of gains people have seen, or related problems/issues...or any advice at all regarding this. thanks.

Knew a local guy with meth injection on his TDI.

He ran the same times racing in cold weather (no meth) as he did in hot weather(w/meth).

But he sold his kit, it was really useless with his stock turbo & fueling.

Really its meant to cool things down, some notice an increase in HP (only the bigger turbo and fueled TDI's around)

http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread...meth+injection

I would invest in other upgrades before that set-up........(nozzles,turbo,chip/tuning box etc......)

Mine seems cool enough with FMIC cooled intake temps. It never gets that hot anyway.

The Rally Car has it, one or two of the Brits have it, Kerma seems to think they're a good idea. Everyone who doesn't have water/methanol seems to think it's a waste of time. They're designed with Turbo Diesels in mind- I'm really superised that they're not more popular/used.

I would agree not the most useful for completely stock, but what are you running besides it? that should be a first question. then do I need the meth/h20 ink?

BTW- where is the group buy and what kit is it for? I may want one...
