Snow performance Water/Meth Questions

Hi there,
Installed my kit somewhat last night at around 10pm, So I never got it all done due to not enough light, and I had a couple questions, hoping someone could clue in and help me out. I was wondering if its possible to use one of my aux switches for the switch for the water/methanol system, and secondly, where the black hose coming out of the control box that says Boost input goes into. Instructions that came with it aren't the best!

Thanks!


Bryce

What model do you have? I've had a Stage 3 for years and yes I used a toggle for it.

I have stage 2, Did you use the aux switch that is an option in our trucks or your own? I was hoping to utilize the ones that I already have that came from the factory if it was possible.

I used one of the factory toggles. Works GREAT.
Hey can you tell me where those two red wires that go into the solenoid (I guess that's what it is) that's not in the instructions go? I took mine off awhile back and never marked where those two damn wires went.
SO it's mounted and not hooked up.

Oh and I'll look but as I recall the black BOOST hose you T-off of your boost gauge.

How did you access the switch? Add a circuit? And I just have the pump, tank and control box. Don't have an external solenoid on my kit! And the black hose looks like it's for air or a liquid, but it has a white barbed T that I think goes in the end and I'm guessing is how it measures the boost but it's got me stumped on where it splices into

The hose goes to boost line. Your gonna cut the MAP hose going form the intake manifold to the MAP sensor, then just "T" it in.

After you "T" the hose in, and the hose's are on, use cable ties to secure the hose to the barbed "T".

That hose going to the control box is what Snow uses to read your boost, so you can adjust the W/M to come "on" and progress the injection as boost increases.

I don't have factory upfitter switches (04 truck), so I uses a laminated toggle switch.

Yes its similar mine just looks newer, and map tube goes from mid engine to the passenger side up beside the sensor, correct? My hose looks a lot bigger then what the snow performance t that came with the kit, and mine had a plastic cover on it so I just want to make sure!

Thanks!

Yes, MAP hose goes from pass side intake manifold to sensor. In first pic, I changed out my factory MAP hose to a red hose. Second pic, is where the MAP sensor is, behind the bracket that I'm pointing at.
