Water injection

Ok I'm about to install a Jackson racing supercharger with the big boost kit and I have a water injection kit from my other car that I took off. Has any of you guys used meth injection on a jrsc setup on a svt and what gains are you guys seeing.

I know I'm gonna get cooler intake temps and in theory more hp. But just checking to see if and other member has done this!

Thanks
Dominic

I would use it more for heat and protecting your motor than actual hp gains.

It may give u a little more up, but it'll def lower your IATs to protect against detonation

Were you planning on strait water or a water meth mixture? If you add any meth you need to watch your tune. Meth will add power and change air/fuel ratio. Just water requires no tune and lowers ait and egt. My daily gets a water squirt preturbo and loves it. My drag car is 50/50 and has one injector pre-turbo and two post turbo. I am a firm believer in every forced inducted car should take advantage of this cheap safety blanket.

I would also do a 50/50 mix as meth will absorb heat at a higher rate , do not tune for it tho just spray it and let it go the jrsc with the bbk gets such high EGT that it will make things safer
On a side note you will need to spray this after the TB or you will kill the TPS every time you spray
