If I order the kit direct from you, i'll get everything I need correct? Failsafe, tank, instructions specific to a 2016 WRX, etc..

Would you recommend this for a daily driver on a stock car. Just looking for a little more power and daily driving reliability, especially with keeping the carbon build up down. Live in SOCAL so it gets hot and gas is ****ty.

Yes, you will get everything, tank is optional.

Since Aquamist mirrors fuel flow, consumption is low. Consider it as a measured steroids on a drip.

For DD, it is seamless.

@Aquamist -- i am very interested in your kit and have been comparing it with the AEM kit (simply because the AEM kit is a simpler install, but obviously also offers different qualities/characteristics).

I am currently assessing whether or not the install of your kit is something I am capable of doing on my own. I would like to do it myself to save money. The shop I would have do install for me (were I to go that route) estimates that it could take 10+ hours, which would be quite a large amount of money spent on labor.

So I am wondering, if I do the install myself, is it then possible for me to simply drive my car to the shop without the kit being turned on/activated? Once there, I would simply have them tune my WRX with the kit running.

Any updates on this? Read the thread with great interest.
@Aquamist, if you were to offer a truly a plug and play solution with no wire splicing and easy setup, this would likely sell even better.

I don't think this can be achieved that easily. Positap is not a bad alternative.

Most of our customers do their own installation, just take your time. The final result will be much better in 99% of the cases.

The aquamist delivery algorithm is totally different to the AEM's variable pump speed method.

I plan on doing the Direct Port + pre-TB setup. Was planning on injecting at the TGV's as shown below, using small jets (0.4A), mostly to battle the carbon build up.

I'm welcoming any criticism.

Was thinking of doing that but I don't know if the tubing will last through the heat on those sides.

They pretty clearly say to keep the injection point further from the head, so why are you trying to move it closer? Are you just afraid of tapping your intake manifold?

Here's where my nozzles are. Form what I hear there's plenty of thickness for tapping. Not sure if you have hood clearance to mount them further upstream though.

How much more complicated is it to do a 2 nozzle or 4 nozzle setup and tune?

I wanted to stick to one single nozzle in the TMIC since I would like to do the install myself. I'm currently at 330WHP without meth, and based on the Aquamist manual, using my target, guesstimated HP (450 crank, 380 whp), one nozzle isn't going to cut it for a 50/50 mix. Unless I am calculating incorrectly.

If I have to, what are the best spots for a 2 nozzle setup (assuming this is possible)?

I understand that with 4 nozzles, I would obviously have to drill the intake manifold.

Looking to keeps the valve clean mostly (slight puddling effect?), in-cylinder cooling, and yes - would rather not tap the intake since I'm not sure how thick the intake is. I will be machining my own TGV deletes, so I figured I'd be the guinea pig at injecting at the TGV's. Worse comes to worse, it'd be easier to plug the plates or make new ones. I see your point, and appreciate the comment, just not sure how close it'd start quenching the flame front. I've see pics of GTI's injecting pretty close to the head.

Cooling the air charge would be achieved by the 5th nozzle pre-TB (further away from the head).

Would also like to hear from AQUAMIST/Richard if he's around...

I'm assuming you needed to use multiple nozzles at that kind of power correct? I've received conflicting info on whether I'll need multiple nozzles to hit my target of 380-400whp. Based on the aquamist graph it looks like I would

Just to clarify I've got a built motor with a big turbo running a conservative tune. My shop recommended port meth injection. I'm sure a single appropriately sized nozzle would work just fine with a typical application. In my case I need the meth as supplemental fueling especially as I approach 500whp with my next upcoming mod.

Awesome man!

I'm in the process of taking out the intake manifold to do walnut blasting, and do the Aquamist install. In regards to injecting at the TGV's, I didn't realize there was little clearance on the driver's side TGV. What looks like the High Pressure Pump is fairly close to the TGV. Either I'm going to have to get very creative and machine a pocket on TGV plate or end up tapping the plastic manifold like you did.

How thick would you say the wall is on the intake? I'm assuming you used Aquamist's 'M8 to 1/8 NPT jet adapter' ?

The Snow Performance system was installed by my shop. I was told it's thick enough to be drilled and tapped.

Has anyone been able to communicate with richard and/or aquamist recently? I received my kit a few days ago but the posi-taps were not included -- i was under the impression they should be.

Also concerning that I cannot get in touch with them in case I need support.

One stupid question. I have hsf6 version and am having flow control module(like fast acting valve) in engine bay, no way to find the replacement. Can I simply buy hsf4 control panel and fast acting valve, will this work? Bc I already have tanks, gauge, ecu connected to cable, wondering if this will work.
Can't get hold of Richard from aquamist...
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

I may be picking up an Aquamist HFS-6 for a good deal. Will I have any issues using this on my 2015 WRX? Will the wiring be similar to the HFS-4? I can't find anywhere online that shows the differences between the HFS-6 and the newer HFS-4.

I don't think the nozzles are going to fit if you try to inject at the TGV deletes, mostly the driver side.

I am about to plumb a 4 port (250cc nozzles) into my intake manifold similar to undyjr.

The single port didn't do much for me, but doing a 4 port injection to get a puddle cooling effect will help a lot.

http://www.alcohol-injection.com/en/...jection-nozzle

"This location can be the most complex area to install. Usually requiring that the intake be removed for access. Injecting here is going to yield the largest water/methanol droplets. And with the closer proximity to the combustion chambers is going to provide a larger amount of mixture into the cylinders. Doing this usually requires more fuel from the factory system be removed. This option is best for max cooling.

The water here is being injected in a manner much like port fuel injection and the bigger water molecules being injected have a more direct effect on in cylinder cooling, and altering the flame front of the combustion charge in a way much like a higher octane fuel. To take full advantage of this nozzle location it is suggested that trimming away some of the factory dumped fuel be done. In other words, in order to take advantage of the better properties of water over fuel for cooling and injecting water at this location, you want to remove the dumped fuel and actually REPLACE this with water. This injection point with a pretty sophisticated WI control method allows for the most advantageous use of water injection. The drawback for nozzles located heres is kit/component complexity, install complexity, additional labor, possible machine shop costs, and possible additional parts costs."

Since I'm doing it myself there are no cons
