Snow stage 2 installed today!

Hey guys-I've had this kit for 3 years now sitting on the shelf. FINALLY got around to installing it. I bought a 2 gallon rectangular tank (came with a 3 qt tank!) and built my own level sensor. Took a couple hours, but I am more than happy with the results. EGT's are down considerably. Before I had to let off with my extreme street tune after around 10-15 seconds, but now I can lay into her ALL DAY LONG. It runs that much cooler. Max EGT I saw with the juice flowing was 1312 after 45 seconds of WOT up a hill. Smoke is reduced, power is up. I have to fine tune the pump pressure, as well as the activation psi, but for now it works. If anyone is on the fence about this mod, ponder no more. Definitely money well spent. I'll post some install pictures tomorrow-I mounted the 2 gallon tank in the bed, then used Nylon 1/4" OD tubing to go from the tank to the pump. From there I used the hig pressure tubing supplied with the kit. I was a bit worried mounting the pump so far away from the tank would cause issues, but after priming the pump, she flows like a charm. I drilled the intake elbow at the 9 o'clock position (if you are looking down on it) and adjusted the nozzle depth until it filled the entire intake. Very clean looking install, and runs great. I don't see why the 2 nozzle upgrade would ever be needed unless you are running methanol for power.

Pics will be uploaded tomorrow! Be happy to answer any questions!

The reason for 2 nozzles is better atomization. Running 2 smaller nozzles that = the same amount as your bigger single atomizes the water/meth better. I have a dual nozzle setup for my 11.7:1 compression Cobra motor.

I'm running plain ole' 2 dollar per gallon washer fluid right now-lol-dollar general baby!

I guess the multiple nozzles makes sense in that respect.

She runs much better. Right now it's coming on at 15psi, I want to turn it up to 20, and increase pump pressure a bit.

I run two 625 nozzle's with a 150psi pump turned all the way up, have it set to come on at 13psi boost and full on at 23psi.

Use to mix my own W/M, but price of methanol went up over the years, and really isn't worth the headache. Now I use washer fluid, much cheaper.

I went with a 7qt tank mounted in the engine bay, and relocated the vacuum reservoir on the frame rail.

My install came out very nice-My pump is mounted right behind (to the side) the passenger battery. The relay and grounds are right above the vacuum reservoir, and my tank (2 gallon rectangular) is mounted in the bed, directly above the wheel well on the passenger side (the space above the wheel opening is wasted anyway). It works well. I got the 220psi upgrade when I bought my kit, going to turn it up a bit more.

My main concern with it coming on at 12psi is that I'll go through fluid very quickly-but I suppose it can't hurt anything. 2 bucks a gallon isn't too bad, and in the summer I'll run half washer fluid, half distilled water if it goes too fast. The biggest holdup with installation was the tank-I couldn't see using the tiny tank included with the kit. It was just ridiculous. I'd be filling it every day. Given the fact that it was going in the bed, and space wasn't really an object, I figured go big. I wanted a nice rectangular, or square tank for aesthetics, as being in the bed it was going to be seen. After browsing ebay on and off for a few months, I finally found the perfect specimen. Cost me 14 bucks with shipping included. I mounted it with tie downs I cut (I just used the nylon braided parts and screws/washers). Figured there was less chance of them abrading the tank over time.

Honestly, I couldn't be happier. Seeing that green light come on (I mounted the LED directly below my esof 4x4 switch-the LED that came wit the kit burned out after 20 seconds of illumination, it's replacement is a very nice radioshack unit with built in resistor allowing for safe sustained 12v operation-$2.95) and watching the EGT's DROP still makes me giddy! Can't wait to tow with it.

How come more folks dont use WM injection? If for no other reason than to tow with it. I just never really see anyone talk about it on here that much. Thanks for sharing your results.
