The Aquamist kits are P(ulse)W(idth)M(odulated). The Vishnu PWM kit uses Aquamist hardware.

Both our PWM kit and the Aquamist kit use the same pump, flow sensor, injection valve and nozzles. It's just the electronics/installation that are different. The Aquamist kit is designed to be a stand alone device with standalone controller. Our PWM meth kit is designed to integrate with the Procede tune and actively adjust boost/timing/fuel as a function of meth flow/meth target.

Rules of thumb:
If you have a Procede, get our PWM meth kit. It will integrate/function better than any other option due to its high level of integration.
If you don't have a Procede, get the Aquamist kit. It will work better than any other "non-integrated" standalone meth kit.

You can run an Aquamist with Cobb, they use it on their shop car. However, you will need to have maps tuned for using meth, otherwise, the only benefit of running meth will be cooling IAT's. The other issue is you won't be able to switch maps on the fly. So if you run out of meth, you may run into some issues with timing pulls, pre-detonation, etc.

For those running Meth with Cobb, what map does one use? I don't think you can use any of the off the shelf maps with the Aquamist kit?

That's correct.

You would either need a pro-tune or the ability to use the beta race maps.

Or some people are stacking Cobb which I find to be quite redundant.

asked this in another thread, but apparently with the HFS-4 you can run a failsafe with Cobb?

My understanding is a failsafe is used to make the car run a less aggressive map when meth flow stops for whatever reason (clog, empty tank, etc.)... so how is COBB going to be able to run a failsafe if you can't swap maps on the fly with a flash based tune?

HFS-4 failsafe opens the wastegates so you don't boost.
