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

Get your RV ready for Camping Season

It’s the time of year to get that RV back in shape for some winter camping trips!! Here are some general tips that will help  steer you toward a stress-free season on the road:

  1. Clean it up and air it out:  Open all roof vents and windows and then remove any pest control items you may have placed during storage.
  2. Check for damage: Look for deterioration of seals around doors, roof vents and windows and reseal as necessary.
  3. Check all lights. Make sure headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals are all functioning properly.
  4. Examine the hitch system for wear, loose bolts and cracks.
  5. Inspect the tires. Check for cracks, worn treads and correct tire pressure.
  6. Inspect the engine. Change the engine oil, spark plugs, and filters.
  7. Check the battery.
  8. Drain and flush the entire system of the nontoxic antifreeze you used before placing the RV into storage and replace with the proper coolant.
  9. Check for cracks in hoses and fan belts and replace if necessary.
  10. Flush the water system.
Prepare for a safe season. After checking all mechanical components, it’s always a good idea to inspect your safety equipment. This means installing new batteries in flashlights and smoke detectors, and restocking the first-aid kits.
Check your coverage. After making these routine checks, don’t forget to review your insurance policy to make sure it meets your current needs.
