I can imagine. Lad I know sold his after he got it repaired as it cost a fortune to repair. Bumper, wing bonnet and headlight had to be replaced. Told me the headlight was £700! Think someone had his pants down there though?

Lad I know crashed his 8 in the snow. I said how did you crash a 4 WD car in the snow

My pleasure. Enjoy this stuff, always wanted to get a standard evo, put a good quality ecu on it. Get an awesome WI kit and some beefy ignition and run some manly boost levels. Just to show people it was a stock engine with some well thought out mods. Would run like a complete stock car too

I think the smallest nozzle they offer if your not remapping for the WI, just using it for reducing temps won’t necessarily need huge amounts as most of the magic happens inside the compression and ignition part of the cycle. The water particles absorb the combustion taking heat “out” so to speak and then themselves turn into steam.

Pulling this info from a dark corner of my head so might not be entirely accurate.

Chucking too much water in there can make it hard too ignite to mixture, quenching the spark so to speak.

Think there’s a way to calculate how much water based on fuel flow but that’s beyond me

This looks ideal, it has two knobs one for when you want it to turn on and the other to turn off. Ideal.

Which one you looking at? Just looking at the AEM one. Seems too simple to me lol.
Comes with its own MAP sensor and fluid level thingy thing

Think your going to be looking at £300-£600 for a full kit depending on what you get

There is also devils own kits and snow performance.

Demon tweets also have AEM kits

Just had a quick nosey at aquamist. One I looked at issues PWM taking two different signals from the ecu which is then sent too a stand alone unit that works out what to send and when etc.

Not sure if that will work with an apexi as they don’t have any PWM outputs.

Yeh elbow is probably best place but not sure if there’s an ideal distance too locate so the water gets enough chance to absorb heat out of the air it is suspended in.

Also depends where there’s enough room too.

There was a lad on here called Sean that ran WI like you want too, just for the added safety net it gives without actually remapping the car to gain the benefits of the colder intake charge.

Not sure how aquamist trigger their systems but I would imagine they can be boost referenced using a Hobbs switch so it only comes on when your above say 7psi.

When does the second turbo kick in??

WI will clean your engine nicely too

Best place I learned stuff on was the aqua mist forum. With you still having twins your not going to go pre turbo are you as the wouldn’t be ideal.

Not sure if you want to go pre or post intercooler?

Post is the most safe so there no risk of water pooling in the IC, however o don’t think you would get that anyway especially if you have a good quality IC and also purchase I good WI system.

I would say an aqua mist kit would be ideal. You should be able to get in touch with someone on the forum and get advice as too what kit you want and correct for your meeds

Are you wanting to just run straight water?

There’s plenty of stuff around and fairly simple if your using a pump based one rather than say a system that uses the turbo boost too pressurise a tank like the system I have got in my shed

I’m not certain of this but if the IAT is lower due too the water injection will the ecu not correct that with more fuel?? Been a long long time since I talked about this stuff and apexi ecus. Lol
