    does anyone use aquamist water injection

    i plan to buy the above tomorow (ive found a good price) im running phase 3 at 1.5 bar. my charge cooler copes well when moving but stuck in traffic it starts to get a bit warm! the guy who rolling roaded my car suggested water injection. ive no room for an intercooler! what do lets run like with it fitted? also i plan to use a 50/50 alcahol/ water mix! apparenly this raises octane by 10% . my car is 300 brake (proven) what power increase do you think i will see using this kit?

    forget the mix that was suggested to you.
    in the summer it will be closer to 100% distilled water
    in the winter there will be some methanol, but as little as you can get away without the bottle freezing

    Do a search for methanol on my site, I have a lot more there

    if im fitting this for "charge cooling" rather than "in cylinder cooling" should i have it before my chargecooler, after the cooler or on the plenum cover? also what boost should it be set to come in at (mine peaks at 1.5 bar and runs at 1.15)

    Probably very little difference but it will give more reassurance that you aren't going to get any detonation. As a gauge, when I tried using a bigger jet (1mm up from 6mm) a long time ago it made a 2bhp gain according to the RR but then are they really that accurate?

    I'd try a medium size nozzle (say 6mm) at about 15psi to start off with and see how you go from there.
