    Re: Methanol / Water invection on my Musso Sports

    Hi Tony,


    What is the operating pressure of the water pump? I assume it is max turbo boost pressure + X to ensure you aren't blowing bubbles back into the water tank and make the nozzle atomise properly.


    And most importantly - how does it go? Can you feel the difference?


    I had some problems with my nozzle getting blocked due to minor impurities in my water / methanol supply, so I installed a filter screen between the tank and the pump and it has worked a treat. You could probably use one of your diesel pre-filters for that purpose.
