um i thought it was bad to get water in your engine. you know thats why you buy stuff to put in your gas to remove the water. but whatever. soooo how does it work, how much does it cost, and can they go on a n/a engine cuz that sounds like a good deal to me
Water injection has been used on many vechiles to increase mileage - I made a post about it a couple months ago...
But the methanol injection is what gives the power gains when tuned correctly.
Its more of a mist that cools rapidly, but too much will destry the motor.
I have seen 100 rwhp gained after installing this type of kit, after tuning.
LOL Ricer, I may give you a hard time now and then. But I've been reading your posts, and I will say that its obvious you've been reading at least as much as you've been writing in here. Improvement noted.
Now about this Methano/water injection thing. A few questions:
1) Anybody care to speculate on the gains a N/A 4.6 with PI heads and Intake could see with a proper tune with a mild injection (I live in constant fear of overdoing things). I realize speculation is difficult if not impossible, but a rough idea?
2) Could a "proper tune" be done via mail the way we get chips now? I.E. if Lonne was told of a cars mods, with H2O/Methano injection, could he get it close or does it require a Dyno and tuner right there? I use Lonnie as an example simply because he is one of the best there is.
1. It depends on what percentage you want to mix the Methane to Water.
I would say about at least a 20rwhp gain with 50/50.
But then again you have to make sure not to screw up the mixture :0
Its mostly ran on Forced Induction since the temps are much higher.
2. To get the full gains you would most likely have to go there to get it tuned.
Its going to run a little different on each car, but its worth a shot to see if Lonnie can do it.
Thank you. I may just have to look into it this summer after installing the PI heads and intake.
Edit: Da*n it! I just realized that if I do that, there will be one MORE thing in common between Chris car and mine. (Of course compared to his, mine is like a developmentally disabled little brother!)
it wouldnt be hard to tune on a N/A engine. just have the tuner add in more advance than he normally would past 3k rpm. Thats the main advantage of this kind of setup, is being able to run more advance.
Going to start a thread on this here. I imagine that in the next few weeks and months, and possibly years there will be much to discuss on this topic.
Missed opportunities ...
in other words, what is your job? mine's pretty badass, i work at a 1/4 mile race track where i run a concession stand with two other guys. sometimes the owner will let me do a few runs down the track. we have a great view of the starting line since the concession stand is right next to it.
First, I want to state that I don't want to get into your financial business. I just want to know your thoughts on specific companies you are considering to buy and avoiding as well as companies that you currently hold stock in.
I recently got into stocks and did quite well with one of my...
