Has anyone with a obs with no cooler installed one of the kits? If so, what kind of temp drop did you see? My truck has stock sticks, adrenaline, 6637, and as free flowing exhaust as an obs can have. I know it says up to 250* drop, but how close to that is realistic? Looking to run just water for the cooling.

water injection is a supporting mod. I would say that if you just put it on and don't go crazy with increasing the boost more it will actually be easier on the head studs. Bascily in a nut shell the water injection decreases the iat 100-200 degs. So your doing better here. But the power gains people get with it is they usually then after installing it turn the boost and timing up to make more power. this is where you stres the head studs because of the extra pressure. So its all in how far you go with things. If you want alittle hp out of this or you want a lot. Head studs are a pretty important thing on these motors. So its something i would still say i would get if i was you.

I would recomend our dvc100 kit. DVC-100 Water-Methanol injection system Devilsown

Its not going to effect you engine coolent temps very much unless you are getting it to crep up when going up grades. The cooler intake air temps will help the motor last you longer.

I recomend a 20/80 mix for around town and 50/50 for the track. Honesty no real good numbers i can give you. It all depends on other factors like how much boost you add more timing you run etc. This mod does not dirctly add power if you just bolt it up. It allows you do be more agressive with boost and run more agresive tunes like crazy larry etc.

DevilsOwn, Thanks for starting this thread I have a few questions concerning a water meth kit. Please dont through me under the bus but I got a Free water meth system made by company S.... would you be willing to answer some basic questions for me??

1) Mine comes with just the filters in the nozzles, your kit has a seperate filter. Is it just an inline filter before the pump? How fine of screen does it have? I think it would be a good idea to add one.

2) I really have no idea where to start with nozzles. My truck is a 04 6.0L, stock injectors and turbo, run an Xtreme street tune from Innovative.

3) What is a good baseline for EGT and Boost turn on. I was thinking 1100 for EGT and 20 psi for boost??

No worries, they do make a decent kit.

1. We have a 120micon filter built into self sealing bulk head. Self Sealing Bulk Head Devilsown Then the nozzles use a 40 micro screen to catch anything that will not pass threw the orfice.

2. I am not sure what nozzles come in there kit. We send our kits out with 3 nozzles and 5gph 10, and a 14gph nozzle. snows largest nozzle is a 10gph "625cc/ml I would start with that and what ever small nozzle came with it.


3. I think your going to want the start point to be what ever boost range tad lower 15psi or so.

If you got any other questions let me know.

On the 6.0, put them in the aluminum intake elbow :nod:. Don't know about the 7.3, but after the intercooler, and as close to the intake as you can get, is what I hear

Kits are going to come with the hardware to hook 2 nozzles up. I like putitng one nozzle near the outlet of the intercooler and putting the other nozzle as close to the intake as you can get it.

im all about doing longevity mods, so i wouldnt be running this as a hp increase.. So what about running just water all the time in a daily driver? Good idea or bad? I feel like rust is somehow gonna be a result even though its a mist thats burned quickly?

I don't have any pics handy. I hardly get any pics from people after they by the kit and go down the road.


Yes you want to run this daily. This is what makes your motor last longer. You not injection much more water than whats natural going to get in when its raining out side.
