Question Water Injetion

Hi all,
I just got rid of my pod filter on the eb and put in an EL 5L airbox, and now i need to reconnect my water injection. (It is supercharged) The previos setup was just squirting a stream into the intake duct.

I was thinking about putting the water injection jet in the front of the top 1/2 of the airbox, spraying toward the outlet, Only thing is, i need some ideas on what to use for a jet.
I was looking at the aquamist jets, but they require > 100psi,
Also was thinking about using one of my old injectors, but dont know how long it will last with 50/50 water methanol running through it, as the car sits for a week at a time every so often, and methanol has the tendensy to clog things up.

Anyone know what i can use to produce a fine mist spray?

Some years ago I saw an article in Zoom magazine with a reasonably cost effective WI setup. Julian Edgar came up with the design. I recall that the misters he used were humidifier mister used in the poultry industry. They are brass and reaonably inexpensive, I think. The pump was from a marine application, and was a low volume high pressure unit. I think I have a copy of the article at home somewhere. I will try to remember to have a look when I get home tonight.

Abit different I know but I have a water spray on my wrx ontop of the intercooler, used two fogger type garden sprays[50c] and Ford[ofcourse] windscreen wash bottle....Well it works

If you have extra injectors would running another one or two upstream and on relay/switch or boost activated off original injector loom work? Running off your fuel line,you'll need to make up fuel rail,that way should be more reliable? Water may run dry and stuff things up.Much like the old days of turbo conversions.. Just a thought????

I have got the info out, finally.

It was from a dec/jan, issue of Zoom. Not sure the year - I only have a photocopy, and it doesn't include the date, but it would have been a fairly early edition. It's to much to reproduce here. If you still want I can photocopy it and post it off to you. I don't think it will reproduce that well through a fax.

The nozzle was from an agricultural supply place, SF2 or SF3 spraying system nozzle (humidifying nozzle). The pump was a Shurflow, 2088-423-244 Multifixture pressure pump. Pumps at 45 psi. Marine supplier should have it.

cheersbigears,


Ian....
