2005 Hydramist 35R82
93oct 479whp 456tq

Default Hydramist installed - up to 27 psi on 93 oct right after install

Just finished installing the Element Tunning Hydramist and although it takes about 8 hours to install, it seems its going to pay off.

Things amazing, with safeguards to switch off the water injection fuel and timing map when the sensor hits empty or too much flow (prob a busted line) or too little flow (probably clogged line or pump inactive). The Hydra also controls the activation of the system and includes a flow sensor and high speed valve.

I have the Perrin Gt35R kit with stock long block and supporting mods (txs fmic, 850 pe's, hydra of course, header..) Before this kit I was having problems running 25 psi on 93 octane unless I ran really low timing. Right after I installed it, took it for a spin, cranked it to 27 psi and with the additional 3 degrees of timing of the water aux map I get no knock at all. The car is running about 10.9 afr's (should be 12.0 wit mist) and EGT's are about 790C, and the car feels great and smooth AND powerful. It shows its still allows leaner AFR's and I think more timing can be tacked on.

I mixed 50% methanol and 50% distilled water for the injection, using the I/C sprayer reservoir for storage. Cost = 5 gal of meth + 5 gal of water = 10 gal of fuel for $31 or $3.10 a gallon. About 1.5 gallons I think lasts a full tank, prob 2 fillups. Phil says I should be getting about 110 octane grade with this mix so I think it saves a bunch on race fuel.

Will update soon on power bragging with pics, dyno plots and of course track times.

Great product and very complete. The only thing you need is a 40amp fuse and a 8 guage wire for pump power and four bolts for the pump. Guys with beginners skills at wiring beware, you want to do this right the first time and route the connections well. All wires, plugs, cables are included and its no brain surgery, but patience is key.

Its hard to explain, right of the bat I just boosted 27 psi on 93 oct and the car feels so smooths and powerful, and its still untuned!! No knock, I just ran the car from 1st to 2nd and when I shifted the car felt like it wanted to explode, it tilted so much upwards that it felt like it almost wheelied. Element Tunning's Phil Grabow and Aquamist really impressed me with this. And the interface with the Hydra its amazing. Feels like I'm cheating!

Its not nice, its fair and earned. The technology involved with the DD3 and its junction box, and the connection with the hydra plus all the fail safes and map switching...how about 479whp and 453tq on stock long block tuned by me, an accountant (I am a USA CPA) on 93 octane and 50%water and 50%metahnol?

I cant imagine anyone that is into building a performance engine, not wanting a Hydramist. With the costs and hassle(supply) of race fuel these days, its a no brainer.

The std OEM pistons cant stand up to detonation very well at all. Besides loosing oil, nothing tears apart an engine faster than Det. With the help of the Hydramist Phil has been able to push the limits farther than ever before without failure.
