Let's see where you placed the tank, pumps and nozzles. Curious to see how everyone's doing this.

Looks cool, is that the Cooling Mist kit? Where did you mount the nozzle?

Here's mine when I first installed the kit. I now have a 90 degree nipple off the tank for added floor clearance and an outside thread injector nozzle.

FYI to all Spec-C tank users: I am using the factory float level indicator with the Coolingmist float switch and the in-tank indicator is now sticking after 3 months of exposure to Methanol. I am now going to have to install the Coolingmist provided switch to see if it holds up....lol

Your only dumb if you place it there, and leave it there if your leg hits it! Hellooo?? Works perfectly fine for me.

Additionally, if you know anything about the Coolingmist controller, then you'll know that you can disable all of the knobs via the software

You might want to turn the tankaround. When yuo mash the gas the liquid int he tank will rush away formt he pump. If you had the tank the ther way the pump would only starve if you jammed on the brakes.
EDIT: Nw that I look at it better you should just turn the tank so the black cap is towards the front of the car.

It draws water/meth from the bottom of the tank. As long as the low fluid light is not lit up, you will not have that problem regardless of what direction the tank faces.

Tank and Pump under my SPT Intake, still have full access to remove the cap to add fluid. Tank is attatched to my SPT heat shield. Temp stays around 100 deg F.

Here is my install of the Aquamist System 2d & DDS2 (Feb 05'):

The pump within the Spec-C tank is now used for a priming pump. This allows liquid to always be in-line so the Aquamist pump at the front of the car does not run dry and seize.



Here you will see the pump, accumulator and all the related electronics which were fitted behind the fog light cover on the passengers side. You can see the Aquamist water jet (.9mm) located on the cold side charge pipe of my FMIC (which has now been changed to an APS DR725):



Another view:



The black box shown under the DIN pocket is the control unit for the Aquamist System. It holds the DDS2 junction box, priming pump circuit, FIA, fuse for system and momentary switch to run the priming pump manually (which is also controlled by the System 2d automatically).:



We also took the DDS2 (flow sensor) apart and made remote mount LED's within the gauge cluster surround. For those that don't know the function of the DDS2, the green LED shows the system is armed and working, the other seven red LED's show the rate of flow. The LED's are also hooked up to my lights so they are fully dimmable.:



That's all for now....

Rick

That is the best pic I have of it at the moment... The bracket was made by a friend of mine real quick, and bolts on like a dream.

Check out my post #15, all alky monitoring and controls in the glove box which still closes to hide the system.
Tank under the intake.

You got them;

Full engine view

Pic of tank and pump

Pump mounted upside down

Another shot of pump

Pic of 2 qt tank, shows accessability

showing how I bolted tank to heat shield

Better shot of tank mount


Note in order to fit the 2 qt tank in this manner I had to cut off the left side tabs and make it as flush as possible.
I monitor the alky temperature with my greddy water temp gauge, temp stays at 100 deg f, well below the flash point of 50/50 water alky.
If you need more info just ask.
