Water Injection

Ok fellas with all the CR's out there melting pistons im beginning to get alittle worried here, I mean im reading about guys melting pistons even when EGT's are still in check and this is what has me worried.

I really dont want something like this to happen to my truck so im looking into a water injection system and I wanna see what system's you guys are running and why you chose that particular system.

I wanna add one of these systems before I go much farther with my never endless build!!!
So let talk alittle water injection here for abit..... what ya say fellas??????


Thanks guys,
Buddy

Some say water only/ some say 40 meth is OK.
Cant run water in the northeast in winter so , I hope the 40 percent Meth is OK. ( -20 blue washer fluild )
Coolingmist 250 pump ,2 nozzles, 7 gallon tank in bed.
Srarts at 18 pounds progressive to 48 pounds
I beleive the meth adds timing so Im trying timing 4 TNTR

The Cooloingmist line is what i was looking at, I like the progressive systems and this is the one im looking at...... http://www.coolingmist.com/detailmai...d=VC2dieselegt

I like how it reads boost and EGT's......

I dont plan to run any meth, just pure distilled water.
BUT what is everyone running during the winter? Id have to do something there to keep from freezing.
Im new to this water thing so bare with me.....

You either run the meth or drain the system.
or fill with 30/40 % meth & disarm for the winter/ drain & refill with water.

I would order that kit with an extra one of their bigger nozzles. I'm in the testing phase with my Cooling Mist "Diesel Super High Flow Injection system" which runs two of their 16 GPH nozzles per pump and with my setup in the low 600HP range I'm into the second pump/stage before the temps level off at 1200*
The first stage goes off at 1000* and the second at 1200*

Is the kit your testing a new one they are working on or something?

Hey Mike whats up? That kit comes with 2 nozzles, so that is why I asked him about the 3 nozzles, maybe he meant to run both the bigger nozzles since one is smaller???
Remember Im new to this whole water injection things so Im gonna be asking some dumb questions, but that is how we learn...........

bigger nozzles are not always the best route to go.

I'm saying that if you look at that kit, it only runs 1 nozzle body and gives you the choice of running either the 250 CC/M to 500 CC/M injector or the 500 CC/M to 1200 CC/M injector. That kit only runs one or the other not both. As far as I can see from the picture on the website.
The kit I'm running is one off of their website. http://www.coolingmist.com/detailmai...d=1007dualpump It's the biggest kit they offer.
By testing I mean that I've only owned it for a short time and I'm still fooling around with the controller and settings. I had problems with getting the second stage to come on, but found I had something programed wrong.
