Snow Performance Stage 1 Water Injection Kit
Complete Starter kit with 300psi Pumpsystem and adjustable boost pressure switch
The operation is very simple: The Boost Cooler system starts injecting when the boost switch reaches the user-adjustable point and it injects a fixed amount of fluid through the nozzle until the switch opens again
Waterinjection is very effective on Diesels - unlike gasoline engines, the power in a turbo diesel is largely a function of fuel. The problem with continually adding fuel is that you create an over-fueling condition and reach a point where the exhaust gas temperatures (EGT) become prohibitive (over 700°C). A water/alcohol mix will decrease EGT's while also increasing power
The water or water/alcohol mixture is sprayed into the combustion chamber. In the evaporation process of the previously injected liquid, diesel fuel is "breakage" and a very fine diesel mist is generated. This results in a power increase because the diesel burns more completely, rather than discharged partially burning or unburned as exhaust gas. When changing the aggregate states of water in steam, its volume increases greatly. The steam expansion also increases the engine torque
Furthermore, the Boost Cooler doesn't create an intake restriction like an intercooler, reduces intake air temps up to 60°C and improves charge air density too! Snow Performance systems effectively steam clean the valves, valve seats, and even the piston tops and intake when they inject.
This reduces carbon build up. The Boost Cooler™ can be installed in a matter of hours without having to remove bumpers or do custom intake piping.
As well as the standard kit parts we also include the following to help out with the installation:
- 2m of 4mm Black Vacuum Hose
- Missile Rocker Switch
- 1/8 - 27 BSPT Barb Hose Fitting (For 4mm Vacuum Hose
See our Water Methanol Injection FAQ (Diesel) Blog for even more information
The Methanol we use is 99.85% and can be purchased here - https://www.chemiphase.co.uk/methanol-99-85-methyl-alcohol-methanol-fuel/
We recommend a 50/50 mix with water. A full tank will last us around 20 minutes on track but this can vary on nozzles size and control settings
The new and improved Snow Performance Solenoid Upgrade offers 100% safety for all injection systems utilising a rear mounted reservoir, injection points under vacuum, or installs where injection nozzle is lower than water-methanol reservoir. The solenoid fits in line between the pump and injection point and locks fluid in place when not in use adding safety and peace of mind to any injection system. Can also be used to control a second stage of injection with any VC-50, Stage 3, or MPG-MAX water-meth controller.
