      Im just going to follow the nn-OEM route and just buy the same size fuel line from Autozone and replace it.
      Im thinking about finishing this up this weekend, then I can finalize the intake manifold to be installed.

      Then all I need is a 3 day weekend to remove the manifold and clean the valves. the nreinstall.

      Oh I will, I love keeping build threads and logs and taking pictures and stuff.

      Sadly, it snowed today so I doubt Iwill be wrenching on the dub this weekend.

      I got off my lazy @$$ and got cracking on the direct port injection intake manifold....
      (Thanks for the motivation "guesswho" on vortex!)

      drileld the pilot holes:


      Closeup:


      Drilled out the holes larger:





      I used a spare piece ofwood to test out th ecorrect size of the hole and the threading for the tap before I drileld and tapped the intake manifold:


      Tapping the threads on the manifold:


      Test fitting the nozzle:


      For the final nozzle install I had to screw the nozzle into the nozzle holder and then thread the two pieces while they were connected into the intake manifold. It was kind of hard to thread the nozzles in properly as the IM is contoured, butwith some brute force iwas able to get it done.
      If you look at the port on the far left yo uwill notice that I had to bust out a handy dandy file and shave down some of the mold casting in order to be able to thread the nozzle + holder into the IM.

      Sorry I didnt take any pictures in between these steps, but here is the final product:

      can't wait to hear about this setup...it looks amazing! also waiting for OP to report back on if there are carbon buildup with WMI in place.

      you plan on running pure meth? would be much more beneficial to you than 50/50, imho.

      I run a ~40/60 w/m mixture.
      The game plan is to have a Y split before the distribution block and run a DO solenoid hooked to a switch in the cabin that has a DO1 nozzle pre MAP.
      This way I can get the best of both worlds on tap. I will most likely not use the DO1 nozzle during daily commutes but when it comes time to have some fun I will turn on the DO1 nozzle and reap the benefits of chemical intercooling

      why not run it daily? I ran a DO3 slightly post MAP daily with WM, now a DO5 with LOOOOTTTS of meth and its a night and day difference.

      meth wont quench flame, so id recommend running at least 51%. trust me. its like a kick in the ass when that stuff kicks on... I can only imagine how strong it would be if your injecting it directly before your valves....

      I wanted to paint my manifold too... but never had tome to do it... always busy fixing oil leaks, boost leaks, torn boots, various other stupid ****. lmao

      If I had a larger w/m tank I would run the extra DO1 nozzle. However 80% of my driving is rushour bull$hit sitting in traffic stop and go stop and go so I really wouldnt need the extra nozzle.
      Im going to have to do a lot of logging with the new direct port injection setup to see how everything changes. Chances are Im going to have to adjust my mixture and maybe dial in the psi forthe pump again

      did you tap your WW bottle? I have that tapped and just top it off weekly when I check my oil. only when im racing or driving like a lunatic will it need to be refilled in less than like 4 or 5 days.

      Yeah I tapped my WW tank, I have to fill it up about once a week or so, usually coincides with filling up my gas tank.
      Id really like to install a 2 gallon tank, butI dont want to lose any hatch/cabin space

      could always mod the WW tank feed neck to be a tank that connects to the main bottle. might get another half gallon or maybe even a gallon up there if you can get the right container.

      Ive thought about this but couldnt picture a good plan.
      Working with plastics can be a pain in the ass.

      I wonder if theTourag or Tiguan or Routan has alarge WW tank?

      It would be awesome to do something like BSH did with their shop car:

      ...running w/m on a DD....if im running 93oct file normal driving... is timing pull much of a concern as it is to be in 100oct file?

      .....if the reservoir is empty will the pump keep kicking on? or does the controller have a option to turn it off?

      DO or SP? thanks for the help man!

      do you suggest tapping the WW bottle over the dinky tank that comes with the kit?

      You could run 93 tune, 87 in the tank just fine. I did that and even went on the dyno like that and pulled the same numbers most others did on 93.

      I havnt logged for 100 oct yet, but ive been in 100 oct mode with 93 in the tank and 80% meth and it pulls pretty nice, I must say.

      if it wasnt for all this damn rain, id be tearing this **** up.

      as far as the reservoir being empty: the pump will stay on. thats why its recommended you install a float switch to warn you of a low fluid level... as per any manufacturer's instructions... OR, just tap the windshield fluid bottle and there is already one in there.

      when my low level light comes on, I just reach up and turn my boost settings to like 20 PSI each and she doesnt kick on any more till I reset it.

      ....so id be good in 93 file, with 93oct no worries then...id only run the 100oct file at the track...i drive 100miles to work and back a day.....yea im thinking the best bet is going to be to tap into the WW bottle....im leaning more towards the devils own kit now though....just because of the controller and i can mount in the car.....ugh im to effing picky

      If you wanted to DD your car with the w/m kit for your 100 mile commute I would suggest you get a larger tank. The stock WW tank is 1 gallon and for a somewhat spirited 100 mile drive to go hang out with some friends i nanother town I pretty much use up the entire gallon.
      i do carry a spare 1 Liter bottle in my hatch that I keep a w/m mixture in.
      i got the bottle from a friend that works in a research lab so I feel safe transporting the meth in it as it is a sterile bottle, thick threaded screw on lid and its made of some sort of plastic mixture that wont get eaten up by the w/m.

      I would research all of the vendors and pick out what w/m kit best fits your needs.
      I have the DO DVC30 kit and really like it. It may be overkill for a k03 but I liek the way it functions and it will still work out nicely if I upgrade my turbo later on.

      yea im looking into that kit also......i wont be k03 for much longer...im gunna go k04(not that big of a difference but).......

      do you buy pure methanol and mix it yourself? im guessing its more cost efficient to buy it that way...then mix with distilled water, im leaning towards this DO DVC30 kit

      Buying the premixed boost juice stuff is a joke.
      I wouldnt run it consistently but it wouldnt hurt to run a batch of the stuff for your first tank and maybe keep one kicking around your garage somewhere.
      I have a 5 gallon race gas can that I take to a local performance shop and buy 100% methanol for $3/galllon.
      I then mix it with distilled water from Walmart for $.80.
      I end up with 2 gallons of w/m for $4, not bad. Thats ~1 months worth of go juice.
      Granted if I take the ar out and BEAT on her I can run an entire gallon out in a day....

      I wouldnt run it consistently but it wouldnt hurt to run a batch of the stuff for your first tank and maybe keep one kicking around your garage somewhere.
      I have a 5 gallon race gas can that I take to a local performance shop and buy 100% methanol for $3/galllon.
      I then mix it with distilled water from Walmart for $.80.
      I end up with 2 gallons of w/m for $4, not bad. Thats ~1 months worth of go juice.
      Granted if I take the ar out and BEAT on her I can run an entire gallon out in a day....

      sweet!.......devils own DVC-30 it is!


      hope you don't mind my questions....id rather ask people that really know what its all about...rather then a shop tell me "o yea, this **** is the real deal"

      thats what this forum is about. do it right, or do it twice.

      be sure to read up on everything you can, and make sure you get the proper nozzle size for your motor.

      Anybody has had any issues with their low-level indicator when using the WW reservoir? Mine is crazy, sometimes it marks low-level when its full, sometimes it doesn’t. But almost always, regardless of the quantity in the reservoir is telling me that level is low???

      Anybody experiencing the same, maybe meth has lower conductivity?

      Thanks!

      I'm sure Vitrual or Kreiger will shed some light on this but I've read that it's b/c windsheild washer fluid has dye in it, hence the color, and that helps the optics on the float sensor determine when it's low or not. So when you run w/m it's essentially clear which means empty to the float sensor.
      Drive it like you stole it!!!

      VW monitors the level of fluid in the WW tank via electricity. The stock WW fluid conducts electricity and w/m will not.
      Take a tiny pinch of salt and put it in with your w/m tank and shake the crap out of it before you fill up your car next time and you wont have that problem.
