I did ask you what shipping method you want, you chose airmail post. Fedex is trackable. I didn't charge you at all.

Do you think it might just take longer because it was a bigger package?

I think it is most probable.

Ok hopefully I see it soon I'll keep you posted. So that sensor pictured is a new style?

The picture you posted is not a sensor, it is a harness for the fast acting valve.
I forgot to pack this on the main package so I sent it separately afterwards.

You guys know if 50/50 meth is safe to use on pvc? My elbow at my tank started leaking and was looking for a temp solution at the hardware store until i can order a proper one. Found a fitting that fits the bill but its made out of pvc

PVC will not work with 50/50, it will soften and deform over time.

Post a picture of the elbow? It might not be the elbow, could be the thread?

k, its leaking where the 6mm line pushes into the quick fit. If the line moves side to side any then meth leaks out. I tried trimming the tip of the line so it could grab onto a fresh part of the hose but still leaking.

Can you post a picture? We haven't offer push-fit fittings for years.

Weird, my kit is only a year or so old and bought it new. I'm not home right now, but it looks just like this fitting http://www.gtmotorsports.com/images/P/P12007111.jpg

All our current systems use compression fitting, since 2010.

Here are some examples:

There is no way the HFS4 comes with those fittings. Unless they buy them in from a third party source. As you can see, we do have a 90-deg elbow that goes into pump.

Thanks for the info. I bought the kit through my tuner that ordered it so maybe that was the case. I will put in an order for some new fittings to get this fixed. They look much better.

I dont suppose theres a way to repair the old push in style ones in the meantime? Car was headed somewhere tomorrow, but looking like I might have to sit on it since I couldnt find any local solutions.

I got the fittings ordered, so that should do the trick when they come in.

Different question, you guys ever use wiffle golf balls as baffles in larger takes? Will meth break these down?

We don't use golf balls for baffles. I believe Howerton has tested them in pure meth.

In terms of boost reference point. Would the FPR vacuum hose (t'd in) be a better point that anywhere else before the throttle body? I'm considering if it's before the throttle, when we let off the throttle and the pressure builds up before the throttle, the meth might still be spraying for a half second or so until turbo spools down. After throttle is less pressure and more in line to what the controller is looking for. Right?

You are perfectly correct about the tee location.

What system do you have? All our current systems are triggered by idc % so the boost signal is irrelevant.

Hello Richard,

I was wondering if I chose the correct jets for my application, and if the location of the dual nozzle is okay.

HFS3 V3 (red board)
50/50 meth/distilled water
750cc injectors (maxed out at 90% injector duty cycle)
1.0mm and 0.9mm jets (just before the throttle body tapped into the TMIC)
0.7mm restrictor
30psi of boost

I feel like im spraying too much methanol and I havent had the chance to do a AFR drop test. I can do this when I get home in a few weeks.

Thanks for your time!

Got my new fittings on to fix the leak, they worked out well. Still getting the failsafe triggering so i'm guessing that wasnt the problem.

Ive disconnected the pump and purged water through it and it seems fine. I've taken apart the injectors and cleaned them also. I pulled the interior apart and checked for kinks in the lines and the wiring and couldnt find anything. I'm stumped at the moment....

Im seeing both yellow lights kick on and no flow bars when pulling the jumper off the FAV while testing but water seems to be flowing out fine before the FAV and also through the injector.

Also since i had everything apart I went ahead and installed the tank filter that my installer missed a year or so back when he installed the kit. Would I need to set something back up now that theres a filter in the tank? Any suggestions on what else I could try to get the kit working?

Assuming the jet is b-not partially clogged and display a nice spray pattern in free air.

You need to reset and dial in the fail safe again as the settings will be wrong since the leakage.

When both yellow leds came on, it was the failsafe activated.

Would I need to adjust the SC on the gauge? I got the failsafe not to trigger but i'm only seeing 4 bars light up on the gauge instead of the normal 5 or 6. Would adding a filter in the tank cause the missing bars you think? The kit worked fine the past year at the current sc settings but that was without the filter in.
