Drop me a pm with when you bought it and from where and I will see what I can do. You are the first that I have heard of this. Pumps are definitely serviceable.

Hi there,

I was thinking of meth injection. I just started modding my car (02 wrx - 120k miles). I'll have stage 2, which is uppipe, downpipe, and mapping.

So the question is can I do meth injection at this point? And will I need any special tune for it?

In a few months, I'm putting on a vf39 turbo and larger injectors/fuel pump. Will it work with this future combo? I'd remap for this. Again, will a special tune be necessary with meth injection at this point?

This is still my daily driver so reliability is an issue. And final question, if I run out of the meth mixture while driving, will I be in trouble?

Thanks for your help,

Dean

You can certainly add a kit to your car and your mods, it can help clean up any carbon build up as well. This will also work for your future plans but it may need a retune for the turbo when that time comes around. If you run out and you have a failsafe then it will protect your motor but then I would either fill up the system or switch to a different map to run regular pump gas.

That's great to know. Thanks. So with my current mods (stage 2), would I need any special mapping/tune for the meth kit?

I was looking at the "Stage 2 WRX Boost Cooler" and I believe the failsafe you mentioned is the SafeInjection?

any recommendations for E85+ 40+lb turbo... ?

Would be running 100% meth.. Have you done any testing with this?

What setup would you recommend?

yea thats what i thought, but with that setup i would go with a stage2 boost cooler 20010 and then there are various options that you could add depending on your needs and budget...i haven't personally used e85 + meth but i have heard back from customers of mine that the gains were great with that combo...i personally am not a huge fan of 100% meth i am more of a 50-75% type of guy but everyone has their own preference on that...

New, more advanced proprietary pump makes Boost Cooler® even more powerful with increased pressure, more reliability

Snow Performance has developed a new pump for its’ Boost Cooler® water-methanol injection system that promises to take water-methanol injection to the next level and is significantly better than the pump it replaces.

1. Higher pressure – 20 psi higher than even the competitors’ “250” pumps. This equates to better atomization and more power potential.
2. Constant pressure – maintains set pressure and doesn’t cycle like other commonly used designs for even injection, less oscillation.
3. More robust – double seals are used within to ensure long life even in the highest duty cycle applications and environments.
4. More reliability – more pressure with less current draw and improved thermal loading capability. This equates to less heat build up for longer life and the ability to run for extended periods compared to other pumps. This is especially important in road racing and commercial trucking applications.
The new “SHO” (Super High Output) pump will be used across the Boost Cooler® product line and is the outcome of the development effort for the commercial truck/ fleet market where reliability and robustness are mandatory.
Designed as a chemical intercooler for gasoline applications to increased air density, timing, and power, the Boost Cooler® is used in naturally aspirated, boosted and nitrous applications to “add octane”. The system injects a fine mist of water/methanol into the intake tract providing anti-detonation.
In diesels, increased fuel economy and power as well as reduced emissions and exhaust gas temps are the result.
The system comes with everything needed for installation, including a water/methanol specific 220psi high pressure/high volume pump and specially designed nozzles to atomize the mixture completely. Installation takes just 2-3 hours.
Snow Performance has been designing and manufacturing well engineered injection kits for over 8-years for many different types of vehicles with 100’s of hours of dyno and data sharing to ensure maximum performance. Snow Performance- the water-methanol injection experts®

I am currently running one of your kits on my '05 STi. Is your new pump a direct plug and play with the old style pump? Also, are your spray nozzles the same style as I bought in your Stage 2 Boost Cooler kit almost a year ago? I also have your V-100 boost controller upgrade and Safeinjection.

The pump is as direct bolt on as you could get for a pump. The nozzles and still same style the holders have been upgraded though.
