Default AEM V2 Water/Meth kit with TMIC

making the move to water/meth. my tuner recommended the aem v2 as hes used it multiple times.

my question for anyone with this kit who has a top mount intercooler:

where are you guys mounting your injection nozzle?

it needs to go after the intercooler and before the throttle body... with a TMIC i dont see how this works. all the injection plates i see mount up between the throttle body and the intake manifold which technically makes the injection point after the throttle body which contradicts the instructions. am i seriously supposed to mount it in the silicone coupler between the tmic and tb?? that doesnt sound correct... or safe for that matter.


tia! cheers

Easiest place to put one in is right on the intercooler before the throttle body. The most common thing to do is drill/tap a hole on the underside of the TMIC. You will need a 90 degree elbow for clearance.

This might help http://www.iwsti.com/forums/water-me...tmic-meth.html

You would install it in the same location as this one

yea that seemed like the only logical place but i was unsure about having to tap the intercooler.

thanks for the link & pic. pretty much covers it.

if anyone else has something different though feel free to chime in.



cheers!

well i have mine pretty much the same way as nurp. Hopefully yours is boost controlled. If not you'll run really rich even during full boost.
Also to add DO NOT put before turbo or TMIC or even a FMIC. with the hot air coming from the turbo you will have issues as in before the turbo or before the TMIC you'll form water droplets and if to much starts to build up you'll start to damage the engine.

nvm... found this. going to look into it more thoroughly: http://www.mishimoto.com/3-0-silicon...-npt-bung.html

"6061 aluminum 1/8" NPT bung for pressure/temperature sensors or water/meth injection"

hopefully they make a 2.75" size. i have no problem trimming the ends if its too long to fit the TMIC.

*edit*

then i found this http://www.usrallyteam.com/index.php...roducts_id=304
seems like the ultimate solution. seal with some RTV when you screw it together. problem solved.

Ive got an AEM v2 kit mostly installed, just need to install the nozzle and boost line. how thick is the aluminum where you tapped the hole in the TMIC? seems like it will be a pretty weak connection without a bung welded on.

also, the nozzle assembly that comes with the kit now is about 3" long, its hard to tell what kind of nozzle is in that picture

It's maybe 3-5mm thick at that location. Enough to get a good amount of threads in. There shouldn't be any forces acting on it which would cause it to get damaged.


Check out my thread https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho....php?t=2804322 It shows how I have everything set up. I added a 90 degree elbow to the end of the nozzle so I could feed the hose through the backside of the intercooler. Haven't had any issues yet.
