      '01 GTI APR3 and some...
      06-05-2006 02:58 PM #101
      bump for interest and dammit cuz I only get 90octane in Alaska
      so my performance gains would be less then that-
      Then again my ECU is only programed for 93
      *currently I run torrco fuel additive to boost my octane-

      Would this kit be logical for someone with say...APR 93, DV, Exhaust, downpipe, and other small stuff like that?

      of course!

      water injection does not care what your current setup is.......... from stock to the craziest of setups you WILL make power........ period.
      in my opinion you get even more bang for you buck with water injection vs your standard chip program

      I beileve there are a few guys running the APR 100 program with pump gas and WAI without issues. Can't wait to get my WAI setup.

      I would love to get my hands on giac race gas file... Right now... I'm simply doing the timing advance on my own...

      sounds worth it on my 1.8t K04erd, too bad i should do the fuel pump and injectors first

      Scott,
      Could i run this WAI on my distributer VR6 S/c with 8 psi and be safe using stock fuel and stock software?

      Anyone here running this system with SEM? I'm wondering how aggressive people have pushed the timing envelope. If you're turbocharged, are you using it pre-boost to help spool the turbo better with aggressive timing and the additional fuel nessesary? Can this system even be used this way?

      You might be able to get away with this. A 75% proportion of methanol could be used for auxiliary fueling just like a second bank of injectors. The 25% of distilled water would make the stock ignition curve more workable. I'd add the Safe Injection failsafe box and a solenoid to purge boost in case of trouble.

      Folks with factory ECUs see their timing retard go to zero. With SEM you could go beyond that. How far you can go would depend on many variables like engine design/spec, boost level, water/alcohol proportions, type of ignition system, etc. There's no one answer to this good question.

      This is a means of enhancing the octane rating of the intake air/fuel charge. The spray is delivered when combustion begins to become uncontrolled. So, just as with race fuel, it's effects are only realized when the engine needs help controlling detonation. A forced induction engine that detonates before boost has serious tuning or mechanical problems. So, this wouldn't be the cure.
      With that said, there is a way to actually *add* energy rather than just maximize safe release of existing energy. That is to mix a small amount of nitromethane into the spray solution. Does that sound crazy? I don't expect every dubber to run in that direction immediately, but it does work extremely well and folks will wise up in time.
      Fwiw, up until this season most folks were saying that WAI was ridiculous, couldn't work or was unecessary in a superior VW/Audi engine, would cause instant hydrolocking, or was only suitable for Japanese cars. IGNORANCE! Our scene is finally waking up. There's power to unleash and safety to be had!

      I installed a WI system on an SRT4 last night. Used a 5gph nozzle a little before the throttle body. This car previously made 402 whp on pump gas running 25 psi from a GT3076R with the ecu pulling 10 degrees of timing. After the install and running 21 psi, the ecu was allowing 29-30 degrees of advance! The car feels much faster with the WI at 21 psi than without at 25. A/f was 11.5:1. This system is just a static system with no flow control. We are going to add a controller and hit the dyno and bring the boost back up to 25 psi. Anyone not running WI is really missing out. I would never build a boosted car without it.

      Yes, you can use washer fluid. However, I don't recommend it because the dye can clog the holes in the nozzles over time. Also, washer fluid generally contains only about 20% methanol. You'll want closer to 50% for best cooling, octane improvement, and easier tuning. The better bet is to mix your own or buy the "Boost Juice".

      but in all seriousness, 2 weeks would be perfect

      make sure that if you are using washer fluid, it doesnt contain any glycol.

      I have a question...
      I have been researching kits and want to buy one but i have a slight proplem possibly. I want to get a kit and use a MAP controller but do i need a controller with certain voltage capabilities?
      I have a 337 with stage 3+ APR if that makes a difference.
      Another company has 2 controllers for MAP, a 2 bar and a 3 bar and apparently neither is compatible with my MAP as far as they know.
      This poses a problem if i order any kit i am assuming because the controller wont work, correct?
      What are my options? i really dont want to run a MAF controller unless its a last resort just incase the MAF craps out.
      Thanks
