Water/methanol injection

I don't know if this has been covered but is anyone using this to prevent knock and cool inlet charge temps? What kits are recommended for reliability? I know in porsches many were using AEM as it has many fail safes built in

Really?? I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but you haven't noticed all the threads & posts on intercoolers?..
or am I missing something in your post?

Vmax Don Guhl has made one and tested it. He had said it worked very well for sure. I'm not sure if he's going to sell they but you might want to start there. Dons very good guy...

ok obviously I'm the one who is missing something here. So what is the water/meth used for if not to cool the boost?

edit to add an apology for being an idiot, sorry Vmax. but I am still interested in learning what you are talking about.

As an alternative or an aswell as with ic. Water cools air inlet temps and meth helps control knock. No need to apologise, I'm very thick skinned

I know the topic has been discussed in helter-skelter fashion in many different threads, and I know I've seen pics on facebook, but I'm not sure it has ever been all put in one place.

In another thread there was discussion of the pluses and minuses to either intercooling or water/meth. Water/meth has an extra fluid level that you need to keep topped up because it obviously will use some. Intercooling, if properly put together, should be fuss-free. Water/meth needs some sort of failsafe against (1) running out of fluid, (2) pump stops working, (3) pump continues running when it shouldn't (potential for hydro-locking the engine). (actually with both methods one needs to bear in mind that if the system fails, the engine reverts back to stock i.e. non-intercooled, and the tuning has to be such that this does not cause a major failure). But water/meth can be taken much further than intercooling can, in terms of cooling down the internals of the engine.

My viewpoint: Daily-driver, has to be reliable? Roadrace/endurance application? Tuning leans towards mild rather than wild? Intercooler. Crazy drag bike or dyno queen or short-run top-speed tests? Water-meth.

GoFaster, personally i would call the intercooler/water methanol use the other way around as long as the intercooler system is big enough
