Who Here Has Water/Meth Injection?
I've been toying with the idea of trying out water/meth injection. I've seen many diesels equipped with w/m, Cummins trucks being the #1 end users, Duramax #2, & I've seen 1 6.0L PSD with it, but I've never seen a 7.3L PSD equipped with w/m.
For starters, where would you install the nozzles? Air filter tube to turbo? Intake manifold near cold side IC tube? Does anyone have any pics of their install?
As far as brand names & kits, the 2 I get the most information from is for the Snow Performance kit & also the Painless Striker I & II kits. The problem with the Snow Performance kit is price. It's up there. The Painless kit isn't too far off, but Snow's price makes me sad. As far as both kits, there really isn't a good variation of w/m reservoir tanks, is there? Both basically have the "go BIG or go home" tanks & then Painless offers either a 7gal tank...........& then goes right down to a 2qt tank(?????????????????). And they offer nothing in between like a 1gal, 2gal, 3gal, etc. 2 QUARTS!? I'm all about large capacity when it comes to stuff like this, but I wouldn't imagine I'd be using w/m every single time I took the truck out. I'd hate to have 7gal of "Boost Juice" I'm not using all the time sloshing around in the reservoir, or have to keep refilling it because a 2qt res gets sucked down too fast.
Maybe there's something I'm missing. Can anyone give me any more info on these kits or other reasonably priced kits? Can you also give me any input on your own personal experiences with usage, mileage, installation fun, etc? Thanks in advance.
