In gasoline engines with forced induction, you can expect the supercharger or turbo to add heat to air let into the engine. Intercoolers help combat thus rise in temperatures, but all to often, especially in hotter regions, intercoolers will heat soak. That's when added cooling comes into play.
Using water because of its high latent heat of vaporization, cools the intake charge and combustion. Methanol also cools the charge and combustion, but in addition, has characteristics like a high octane fuel, thus diminishing detonation due to high compression or heat. These systems are designed for gasoline vehicles that obtain a mass air flow meter and work well in 8-30 psi boosted engines. They work extremely well with positive displacement superchargers and fast-spooling turbos that have high boost at low rpm since the MAF controller can help to dial in the perfect amount of spray.
- MINI Cooper S Clubman 2004 - 2008 (R52)
- Boost Dependent and Multi-Input (0-5v/ frequency) progressive controller designs feature large adjustment knobs, integrated plug for harness connection, integrated fuse, covered status light and test button for enhanced splash resistance and mounting tabs
- Wiring harness is terminated with a positive-lock connector on one end with color-coded wires to ease installation, integrated pump ground circuit and additional wire for optional on/off fluid solenoid
- “Boost Safe” failsafe output included (for complete failsafe under all conditions, see our Water/Methanol Failsafe Device)
- Heavy-duty high-pressure injection pump features integral fittings, a Santoprene diaphragm and EPDM seals to resist corrosion. Our pump maximizes line pressure for optimum atomization and its quiet, smooth operation is almost undetectable
- Precision-machined billet-aluminum injector with integral check valve
- Three interchangeable injector nozzles to cover a wide variety of HP levels (250cc/min, 500 cc/min & 1,000cc/min)
- 1 gallon tank with integral conductive low-fluid sensor and positive lock connector (tank-less systems available)
- 20 feet of injection tubing included
- LED dash light for system status and low fluid warning
