Can any of you guys post intake tract pics after you run the H2O meth kits for a month or so?

It seems there are a ton of guys paying alot of $$$ to clean there intakes. My experience with water meth is it leaves the intakes pretty clean especially the cylinder/pistons.

Just curious.

New to the boards, Thanks

If no one else posts, I should have pics for you in the spring, but my car had 75k mi before the meth was installed.

FYI, taibani, at the current injection profile, I burnt through 2.5g of h2o/methanol in 2 gas fill-ups (call it 1k mi). Will be changing the mpg nozzle to one with less flow (but injected more frequently), so will update once I've made the change.

I have to bump this topic since I need to clean my engine due to CBU recently diagnosed on my car.

Will this universal kit from Snow Performance work on our cars?

I posted a thread a while back with pictures showing the intake after a few months of egr block and methanol. I would find the link but its a pain from my phone.

I don't think they are offering the diesel kit anymore. You probably should call snow performance and devils own tech support and just have a chat.

I got an email back from Burger, here's the quote: "You can adapt it to work if you want but it's up to you to figure it out. We don't support installation on the diesel models."

yeah. I would go with one of the other kits. The Burger kit I got appears to have been sourced from Snow performance. The only advantage of the Burger kit was that it was controlled from JBD, which was good for me since it was quick and easy to set up. Since they are no longer offering that you might as well go with one of the others, they seem like they are pretty helpful explaining what you would need

who has got a dyno with and without meth injection on the 335d?
without changing maps, or setting of JBD, how many rwhp does? it increase also, for the "mass quantity" the Pressure of turbo?

Hey guys,

I installed an AEM kit over the weekend, so far so good. Does anyone know a good source of 12v in the engine bay that would only be active when the car is running? Right now I have it set to the 12v by the battery lead so it is "always on" and would like to fix that.

Also any ideas where to install the little LED light for the cabin that comes with it, I saw one installed behind the hazard light that was pretty cool but no idea how to get back there. I'm also thinking maybe one of those extra buttons below the stereo.

Thanks!

Mine is not powered until I activate it via a button in the compartment behind the shifter assembly. I made a wiring harness for it so it can't be activated until terminal 15 is active also and it does not cause a battery draw when the vehicle is off.

Is not a good idea to have it always on. In my m3 i also have a aem kit but installed a switch inside the driver small dash storage box to control the power cable and be able to turn on/off the system only at my command. I also put the led above the steering column cover for easy perception. I saw failures with hydrolocked engines due to stuck meth pumps running.

I wish there was something in the engine bay that was on/off with the ignition, but I like the idea of a switch in the cabin as well. Not sure how to run the wires from the computer box on the passenger side through to the dash, but I will give it a shot.

Thanks!

Dont need to go that complex with just a basic kit like aem. With the led visible, you know if the meth pump is working properly or not. If not, then just turn off the system. That is why you must have that switch for a easy and quick access.

This might help. Pic is showing the inside of the DDE container and how it routes into the passenger side footwell area. I used some water injection tubing to make the path and pushed wires through the tubing. Worked pretty well. Then you can easily connect into the fusebox for the key-on power.

Speaking from experience ... just because the pump is getting power doesn't mean fluid is flowing into the intake. There's several things that could be going wrong that you might not notice if you're just looking at the LED.

If you're really interested, try the AEM flow guage. I've been quite happy with that unit, and it lets you know if and how much fluid is actually flowing. It's also helpful for identifying if you have a leak or if a hose became disconnected ...
