Water Injection

We all want to change the world. But when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out. Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright?

There are a few companies that make kits that will include most of what you will need (Snows Performance, Devil’s Own, Aem). The amount of water you inject depends a lot on your setup. With a stock pump around 200ml/min will be about all it will take. With a modified pump some go as high as 1000ml/min.

There are many different idea’s of where to place the nozzles or nozzles.Always place your nozzles after the turbo never add water before this can slow the turbo and can cause damage as well.

My first year I ran one nozzle in the crossover pipe. I now run three in the intake and one in crossover. Most systems are activated by an adjustable pressure switch form 1 to 20 psi.

The main purpose is to keep those EGT down below melt down and the extra power is a bonus too. Make sure after your hook you run your engine for a bit at low rpm to make sure you burn up any mist left from the run or it can rust cyl.

The Snows Performance nozzle holder has built in check valve that will stop boost pressure from pushing water back while pump does not run.

I use the push to lock fittings and have had no problems. If you put them into your intake you may need to place them in a way that does not interfere with your fuel injection lines. Snows comes with screens on the nozzles but still a good idea to run a proper inline filter.  The kits shown will cost 325 to 450 and can be found on ebay.

Very important make sure you use a device like a boost switch or controller when wiring up your water injection pump. A toggle direct to your pump can lead to disaster. If you accidentally turn on your pump while tractor is not running the water will lay in the intake until you crank it and then good chance of a bent rod. A simple boost switch between toggle and pump will only allow pump to come on if you have boost present. Most of these switches can be adjusted…
