Info Here


Aquamist System is pretty good [click here]

and there is coolingmist which is another company that makes water injection kits.

i have no personal experience with these setups, but i'm sure if you search you ccan find tons of people who have used them. Apparently they are the way to go for us stage 4 guys.

Yea, thanks for the info.

I saw those links already. Still not sure what to get. The Aquamist 2d goes for like $800 or something, but I have seen many other links that have $250-300 water injection kits. Not sure what to buy...

If you want to compare apples to apples, the Aquamist 1s kit is more comperable to the other boost switched kits. It is still more expensive, but I trust in it and the pump is fairly small compared to some of the others. It is also easy to build up on that kit to make the 2c, 2d, and 2s kits for when you are going nuts with power.

You are correct, the SMC is progressive. There are a lot of "kits" based around the Snow Performance RV pump that are just run off of a pressure switch. I didn't refresh the page before I wrote, so I didn't see the SMC reference.

Which version of the Aquamist waterinjection kits would I need?

I'm on a Stage 4 18g WRX + FMIC + UTEC (306whp pump, 348whp c16)

I plan on keeping the UTEC and heading to TXS for another tune.

I have about the identical setup as you. I use the aquamist 2d system, made 329 whp, 314wtq on a mustang dyno, 92 octane pump gas. I recently installed the coolingmist kit on a buddies STI...works great, the pump is a little bit big though
