    Are we there yet?
    Who uses a water methanol injection system?
    What brand are you using and what benefits did you get from it?

    If used and tuned properly it does wonders for a turbocharged engine. The water will lower cylinder temps and the meth will increase the effective octane of the fuel. If you just throw a wmi kit on with no tuning you will lose bit of power.

    Karl uses a snow kit but I think he changed his pump.

    I use snow stage 2 kit from z1 but I run straight water.

    Installing a kit untuned will let you run a couple more psi (maybe more maybe less depending).

    Do not recommend upping boost without knock detection.

    I use a Snow performance Stage 3 and use a 50:50 water/meths mixture. I have recently increased the size of the jets to 225ml/min per side. I have the Water/meth injection start at 5psi boost. It is important that the tuner then uses all the extra methanol prior to increasing fuel. As magic mike says dont increase boost without a sensitive knock detection system fitted. My race car runs up to 21psi boost on 98octane fuel with W/M. The W/m system also allows you to run smaller injector as a portion of the fuel is supplid by the methanol.
