I am running the Aqua-mist 2d on the Jetta spraying post rotor.
On a ~50 degree day without water injection IAT runs around 130F, with water injection it is below 70F.

This drops KR from near 10 steady all cylinders to 2 on random cylinders.

The Thrasher injection plate arrived and I couldn't help tearing it down just to see how it fits.

The Snow Alcohol injection system is Fed Ex'd to arrive next week.

Off topic, but is that a temp strip on the nose of the SC?

It tells the temp of the nosedrive, of course. Paul also brings a thermal temperature gun to the meets. He shoots and collects data on track temps, pit temps, and SC temps throughout each track day. For all of us, not just the Bullet.

Paul, I'm not as familiar with your TB, but on mine, there'* a perfect spot I can tap right behind the throttle plate on the TB itself. That'* my goal in the next few weeks.

Hope to get it done in time for others to copy if needed (before summer meets).

We should have 3 cars at WCBF running systems this summer.

Four if you haven't counted me. I haven't placed the order for mine, but I'm not far off.

Yes. I use them on all my mechanical toys. If there is a change I will pick it up before it becomes a problem.

It should fit custom in this location and the Thrasher kit comes with a custom bracket for a full throttle switch....sold by NOS...nice marketing trick.
I still want to be able to use my engine cover. Here are a couple of views of the throttle body.

The nozzle fits nicely in the adapter.

A high quality kit but does not include enough wiring.
For now I am concentrating on mounting all the hardware first.
More pics to come as I progress.

Is that the stage 2 kit from snow that varies the flow rate based off of the MAF readings?
