Here's my water/meth setup. I have the AEM kit installed. It works really well and it's a very simple kit.

Thanks for the pics. I think I'm gonna start saving for that. From what I've read it just makes sense for boosted applications to have this mod. Did you notice a good difference after you installed it?

Here is mine. The pump and wires will be covered when I put the carpet back up.


Here is where the hoses route out from the hatch area. You can also see the boost sensor.


And here is where I am spraying in the manifold. I drilled a tapped a 1/8 NPT hole.

Looking good. I'm gonna start looking for a good place to mount it. Subs and amps in the way. Still have some room back there but I'll see what works.

Might not be some updates for a while. Sprained my neck really bad in a brace and on meds for a week. Dang left side of my neck swelled out like I have softball sticking out of it. When I get better I'll post some more pics gonna go ahead and mount the intercooler next after my neck heels.
