Ah yes Tracy. You are wise. You can see what these younguns are missing .......my whole point.

Tracy hit the nail on the head. It really is about apples and oranges in comparison, no doubt about that.

but in answer to your question. No. I am not going to install Nos.
and I never meant to discredit his times, just the apples and oranges comparison.
My bad if I am out of place and my opinion may not be shared by the majority. :(

I'd suggest checking that WI nozzle for spray. It might be clogged if the LIM isn't clean. That'* a sure sign something is wrong. My LIM and SC were always brand-new spotless when I was running the injection.
Oh it was spraying. I could tell by the rate of useage based on when I had it engaged.
That'* why I was surprised with the difference.

I'm going back to pre-rotor injjection for better mixing and distribution. It should also give slightly better rotor sealing using liquid.

I'm thinking your drooling (you're old), not atomizing.

You old fart. You're too used to looking at your drooling Boxer. J/K

Pressure was great at 100 psi and 300 l/m. I checked the spray pattern with the pump manually and it vapourized the liquid perfectly with no puddling.

It was just a question, and i don't really care one way or the other. I just wasn't sure if he was serious or not after showing such strong feelings against it.

Definitely! I would be a nervous wreck though after all the chipped pistons, and blown up manifolds from malfunctioning or improperly set up systems I've seen. I'll take piece of mind over some extra bottle power.

i figured you were kidding. I just wasn't sure if you were about to upgrade to the O2 inducing, charge cooling spray.

I am "old enough" to understand and respect that you are trying to get your car running at it'* utmost potential next season. My one sentence question was regarding your performance build and was not intended to get anyone thinking i was about to start a N20 related flame war.

Keep us posted and hopefully you can get that GenV setup tuned right for next year.

Didn't I go over this with you last year? If you plan on keeping the Gen V you will ruin the coating on the rotors if you do it pre-rotor.

edit... Yes I did.

Oh yes I remember that Oldsman and I accepted that reasoning last year, especially since the coating was 2/3 gone on my Gen3 rotors but....


It worked very well when it was pre-rotor.
It didn't work very well post rotor.
I cannot change nozzles post rotor without removing the SC.

I am not convinced it will strip this new rotor coating.
I'm willing to try it. The worst that can happen is it will cost me $100 to replace the rotors next year.
Heck, if it doesn't work well next season, the Gen5 is coming off and the Gen3 is going back on.

Maybe I'll plumb it both ways with a valve.

Its your choice.... But I would advise you to really reasearch to see if anyone with similary coated rotors has had a good expierence with W.I. (i.e. Guys with mustang cobras that run W.I.)

Yes, it is always my choice.
I have in the past done lots of research and spoke with some Mustang people but have always gotten conflicting info. Some say OK and others say NO because they know someone who knew someone who ran that way...

I was one of the first members to install and adapt the TOG headers made for the GP to a +00 SSEi. I had lots of NO'* because it will take away all your low end torque and it'* not worth it and you will burn your valves.....

I am probably one of the only owners to have disabled and removed their EGR system. It'* been that way for 5 years with no problems and cooler running. Most people still disagree with my opinion and results.

I have taken many hits these past 5 years for the learning and good of the members on this forum. I figure that alone has cost me a couple grand.

This may be another hit in experimenting to find out the real facts or it may be successful and also benefit the members of this Club with knowledge on how to gain 30 - 50 hp using water/methanol 50/50 injection.

I know with the Gen3 coating, it depends on what you put in your mix. Paul'* mix won't hurt them. Then GenV coating, I don't know for sure.
