Who else is gonna do this?

I have been really interested in using water injection to cool down the cylinder temps. I KNOW im going to do it to my Gen Coupe, who else?

Oh yeah water/meth injection is on my list if I decide to go the way of big boost. In fact at the SEMA show I talked with the SNOW guys and they had some cool stuff and they have done a lot of stuff with the EVO and SRT crowds already so it should be relatively straight forward.

Yeah snow is a good company for water/meth injection. Although i have never used it, Its just one more thing i have to look into alot more and read up on.

Ive been reading a lot about it and it seems like cheap insurance as well as a way to boost octane and power. Im definitely getting a meth kit though, I want a big, huge light to let me know when the tank is getting low haha

Meth injection has been around for a while with a bunch of the drag evo guys running it.
It works well for what it is.

This is like the 1st I've thought about it, but does sound interesting considering I'll be pushing this engine pretty hard. Any materials & info you guys have on it would surely be appreciated. Thanks.

No meth for me!!!!

I prefer to stick to pump gas only. I'll just upgrade to a bigger turbo to meet my goals and keep the EGT's low.

Yeah water/meth injection adds a layer of complexity to the picture but it can be a useful mod if done right. It may still be something I take a look at in the future though.

For those of you in the know on this, how often do you need to refill. It would seem like that would get annoying after a while. I am pretty much ignorant to how much spray is used though. Thanks for any explanations.

It depends on a several factors.

Of course first it will depend on how often you get into the throttle, but also what type of meth controller you use (whether it is straight on/off or progressive) and when it is set to turn on. Then you have to factor in what size nozzle you will be running, how much water/meth your resevior will hold, etc. I could go on and on. We'll probably have to wait until a couple people get the car and start tuning with meth injection to answer your question.
