Okay guys i have always known about people doing this and seen it.... what the **** does it do? advantages? disadvantages? whats the point? some one please help me out im interested
Water/Meth injection is used to suppress detonation and to safely allow much greater amounts of boost and or compression. When used the right way, it has benefits similar to running race fuel all the time.
When a nozzle is placed after the throttle body the droplets reach the combustion chamber and smooth the entire process. It melts away any carbon deposits and eliminates the glowing hotspots. Basically, it allows you to have a more smoother combustion instead of a violent bang bang, which leads to broken internals and pistons. I highly recommend our throttle body flange upgrade because it places the nozzle after the throttle body, and you don't have to tap into your manifold or any other position, and most importantly throttle bodies are expensive. I am sure you are aware of what would happen if you sprayed liquid into an electrical component
You can also run a dual nozzle kit and put another nozzle post intercooler if you have a turbocharged vehicle. The droplets absorb the heat from the intake air. The droplets start to evaporate causing the intake charge to be cooled even further. (almost like running your in 100degree temps, but your engine thinks it 40degrees) significantly provides better cooling, and you can never have to much cooling.
Allows for maximum power output while substantially increasing overall engine reliability.
Depending on what setup your vehicle is (stock turbo or bigger) I would recommend the Snow Performance Boost Cooler Stage 2 Kit
There are two methods of controlling your spray. Either MAF or MAP based. If you are on a stock turbo or similar you would get best results using MAF controlled. On a turbo bigger, the MAP sensor would be usable as it would give you more accurate readings.
You need to make sure your nozzle sizes are correct. Too much spray will put the fire out, and too little spray is just under powering your vehicle, then whats the point right? We can help you pick out the precise nozzle sizes that you would need.
what meth parts would you recommend from start to finish (running lugtronic standalone) for this setup:
16V ABA with an Eaton M62 SC?
Probably the same setup that you recommended for the op? With the dual nozzle thing?

Is this setup intercooled? Do NOT spray before the interooler!
Would the dual nozzles be beneficial for this setup or would it be overkill? Its not really the beastliest setup there is... Or am I misreading this, does the setup already come with 2 nozzles and the dual nozzle mounting is just for mounting both nozzles?
What size nozzles would be good for me?

Right, an outrageous build isn't needed to gain from the superior intake air cooling. In fact, a small turbo pumps out far more heat than a big turbo. So, such engines may actually benefit more from a dual nozzle configuration.Its not really the beastliest setup there is...
That's correct. Each kit comes with two nozzles but only the means to mount one or the other.Or am I misreading this, does the setup already come with 2 nozzles and the dual nozzle mounting is just for mounting both nozzles?
We calculate nozzles at the time of purchase. Get your plans together and then let us know when you're ready to take the next step.What size nozzles would be good for me?
