AEM Water/Methanol Injection Kits

Water / Methanol Injection Kits

AEM Water/Methanol Injection Kits reduce air inlet temperatures which allows users to increase boost pressure (and advance timing on forced induction gas applications) to create more power by utilizing the cooling effects of the system under heavy load. The kit is offered in 2 configurations: a 1-Gallon kit for racecar applications, and a 5- Gallon HD kit for Diesel applications or racecars requiring extended range. Both kits include all the elements necessary to do water/methanol injection right, including a standard fluid level sensor for the tank, recirculation-style pump, feature-loaded controller, and complete hardware for installation on practically any diesel or gas application. For users who intend to use a custom or existing reservoir, AEM also offers a “tankless” pump and jet kit. There are no hidden costs or additional components required.

HOW IT WORKS

Once the AEM Water/Methanol Kit is installed, a boost-dependent, variable-flow progressive controller allows the user to determine the amount of water/methanol mixture (up to 50%) to feed into the inlet stream from the fluid reservoir. The controller commands a high-pressure, recirculation-style 150-PSI pump that delivers the mixture. Overall flow adjustments at the inlet are made via one of three different-sized jets (included) that are designed to match most engine power requirements.

RECIRCULATION-STYLE PUMP

AEM’s recirculation-style pump offers improved performance, reliability and a much smoother, quieter operation when compared to older switched-style pumps. With the use of a new internal bypass design, AEM’s upgraded pump eliminates erratic on and off switching/pulsing and ensures consistent fluid delivery for optimum performance. With durability and reliability in mind, AEM has designed the pump with a Santoprene diaphragm and EPDM seals to withstand the harshest of alcohol mixes.

BOOST SAFE!

All AEM Water/Methanol controllers include a Boost Safe feature. This feature allows users to retard timing or reduce boost via a ground output if the system runs out of fluid or detects a controller error, ensuring fail-safe operation of the engine whether the system is engaged or not. Critical safety features are integrated into the system to virtually eliminate any chance of failure, including an integral fluid level sensor in the reservoir, internal controller diagnostics and an LED dash light to warn of low fluid level or error codes (including short circuits.

KEY FEATURES

  • Universal kit includes everything you need for installation
  • Boost Safe” feature lets you retard the timing or reduce boost via a low side output if the system runs out of fluid or detects a system error
  • Recirculation-Style, controller-driven 150-PSI pump provides boost-dependent variable flow
  • One- and five-gallon tanks with integral fluid level sensors available
  • LED dash light included for system status and low fluid warning
  • Methanol compatible (up to 50% in solution with water)
  • Includes three different-sized jets to match your power requirement

Cat Back or Turbo Back Exhaust System… Which is right for your diesel truck?

Intake Exhaust Diagram

At OCDiesel.com, we sell all types of exhaust systems. But which is the right one for you? It all depends on how you use your diesel truck. The two most common types of exhaust systems would be Cat Back and Turbo Back.

Cat Back refers to the portion of the exhaust system from the outlet of the catalytic converter to the final vent to open air. Cat Back systems generally include the pipe from the converter to the muffler, the muffler, and the final length of pipe to open air. Cat Back exhaust systems are a very popular aftermarket performance enhancement. They generally use larger diameter pipe than the stock system. Good systems will have mandrel-bent turns that allow the exhaust gas to exit with as little back pressure as possible.

Turbo Back refers to the part of the exhaust system from the outlet of a turbocharger to the final vent to open air. Turbo Back systems are generally produced as aftermarket performance systems for cars with turbochargers. Some Turbo Back systems replace stock catalytic converters with others having less flow restriction.
