What are your thoughts on water injection to insure no VO coking

This is the thread I have going on Frybrid.Will water/ meth injection prevent VO coking? - Forums

I am looking for more input from some Powerstrokin Veggiers for your opinions on if this is something I should be looking into & if anyone on here has a kit on their truck. Don't really know if it is necessary but if it cleans combustion chambers for the cost I think I might do it.

ITs absolutely a good idea. I don't have it on mine yet but as of recently I have decided it needs to go on my list of mods...top of the list.

Do you think a stage one setup will suffice for combustion cleaning? That is the cheapest kit. Looks like that only comes on when you reach a certain amount of boost pressure.

Iv been reading that thread on Frybrid. How dose the water/meth get rid of cooking?

What if u set up a diy kit that u would use for only cleaning, but clean the motor say once a week instead of running it all the time like regular water/meth?

I think any amount at all is good for cleaning. The stage 2 is more for lower EGT on juiced up rigs i think. Stage 1 is still 250cc per min. right?

I think yes on stage 2 & yes on 250 cc per min. Not sure though. Still learning on this.

I had only planned on running water but in the winter that's going to be an issue. Is it ok to run enough meth to keep the water from freezing. I have read you should have tunes if your going to use meth.

some guys are running windshield washer fluid, it wont freeze. Don't know much about meth and I don't plan to use it at all. Just the water for obvious reasons.
