Has anyone here tryed it? If so how'd you build it,parts etc? Did you use a boost activated switch ?
My big valve head is almost ready as well as the gutted upper and 60mm throttle body. I think O2 inj. would be an asset for this set up.
Any help is appreciated. Glenn , Gary , Pete?

That's H2O you mean.

I've thought about it and it sounds like a good way to go, but I've heard/read about water mist hurting cyls, rings?(shrug)
Maybe a water/alki mix?

I would use a pressure switch to activate at 10 psi or so.
There was a link somewhere to build one, can't remember WWW.

I'm playing with C02 right now because of availability and just finished perfecting my IC sprayer.
This thing works great, and I can get it to snort like a Dragon while sitting at lights.

Yup, the last NATO newsletter has a detailed write up, complete with pics of the water injection system I am using.
