One idea is -4 A.N. braided hose. But that would require sourcing something like a -4 A.N. threaded compression fitting for 6mm tube or a BSPP - A.N. adapter.

Another idea is sheathing the existing line.

Ideas?
I just converted all my nylon hoses to braided lines with -4AN fittings. I also have a no drip quick disconnect right after my tank. I use the Howerton (2) 1 Gallon tank unit. I have a build thread with pics of the lines in it.

Jeff Howerton was great at helping me put this system together. He also helped a lot with setting up my system.

I have little experience with braided lines. Jeff at Howerton Engineering is the person to help you. He has the BSPP to AN fitting adaptors.

Thanks man. If you can put AN lines together on your own it is pretty easy. I have never done them so I left it to an expert. I mapped out everything I wanted and sent it to Jeff. He double checked to make sure it all worked out fittings wise and assembled them. He also pressure tested them.

If anything, I wish I would have made my lines at the intercooler shorter and put 90's at the tee. Otherwise it all worked out really well. I could have used a shorter line out the back of the tank system as well.

I've got a general question that I tried researching with no luck. I'd like to install an aquamist kit myself, but the closest tuner is 6 hours away from me. Would I be able to install the kit and drive the car? Is there a way to turn it off until I was able to get to the tuner so that it would drive like normal? Or should I just pay to have them install it once the car arrives at the shop?

If you can put up a shelf, you are more than capable to install an Aquamist. I am available to help with any problem. The wiring is straight forward, mostly plug and play.

You can install and test the system before making the drive. Let me know when the install is completed and I will help you setting it up.

You can either pm, email me from here or on the www.waterinjection.info forum.

The tank tap needs a 23mm hole, if I read the manual correctly. Is it possible to get the fitting bigger? For using the fitting to also fill an empty washer pump hole.

What kind of alcohol is it? If it is methanol, it will not be good to breath it in.
Also a chance of corroding the IC fins.

The 22-23mm hole is quite standard for washer parts. How big is the hole?

he VW 5.5L tank shows it needs a 29mm plug, although the hole might be different. They never came standard in the US, so I can't find alot of info on them.

That is an odd size. We have nothing close to that at all. Sorry.

If I want to turn the HSF-3 off but not cut to waste gate pressure do I just take the jumper off of DHB?

A member on another forum asked, and I wanted to post correct info. For a direct injection engine. IEN54 BMW and MS3, the HFS6 cannot handle the signal (as well as the HFS3), correct?

The HFS-3 's DI signal detection is more advance than the HFS-6. It can detect the lift and duration of the some direct injection signal such as the BMW's current N54 engine.

The HFS-6 just detects the opening duration. It worked very well on some earlier direct-injection engines. It is more advanced on monitoring and re-scaling the fuel rail pressure than the H3.

The H4... has it all, for the time being. The pace of advancement of the automotive industry keeps us very busy.

On the earlier DI engines, like ones without a common rail, or even a pressure sensor, the HFS-6 would be the better choice, is that what I am understanding?

Hi Richard!
Is it possible to "upgrade" the older HFS-5 to the latest version?

The earlier DI engine generates the high pressure within the injector valve itself rather via common rail arrangement.

You are correct that some don't even have a pressure sensor signal we can use. During those days, almost all makers used their own DI system. For us, it was very difficult to pin them down until recently.

There is a big design change between the H5 and the H6, H3 and H4. It is better to sell the H5 as a complete system and purchase the newer systems.
