Water Meth ???

im working on building a water meth system for my truck and i like everything hidden so i was thinking bottom of one of the intercooler pipes.

Re: Water Meth ???

cold side would be better. There's no sense having it going through the intercooler. I have two nozzles right into the CFM+ intake elbow.

Sure to you have water building up in your intercooler sounds like an extra 100hp right their

Re: Water Meth ???

i have heard of guys running a nozzle on the hot side and it helping to cool the intercooler and in turn cooling the air even more. though those guys also ran nozzle/s on the cold side too.

the one nozzle i had plumbed on my dodge was on the hot side but i never got a chance to run it before getting rid if it.

Re: Water Meth ???

If you never ran the truck long enough afterwards...there would be a pool of water sitting at the bottom of your intercooler...(You would be creating a "trap", if you put it at the bottom of the piping.)

Re: Water Meth ???

unless you set the controller to come on at 10#s of boost, then even if you let off the residual boost should push the rest up the pipe right?

But you wouldn't want it to come on at 10lbs of boost...that's too early. Should have it coming on no less than probably 15-16psi.
