Meth setup guidance

Hello Auto enthusiasts

I'm reaching out to you all for guidance; specifically with setting up a meth kit. My thoughts were to build a similar meth kit like the link below from Devils Own.

http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18479

I've heard the HFS-4 meth kit is one of the best, but it's out of my price range.

I'm looking for the best kit possible at the lowest cost.lol

Current mods are

AR DP's
BMS DCI
BMS Charge Pipe (dual meth nozzle)
JB4 G5 iso
BMS e85 Flash (running about E55-E60 )
ROB PCV
Walbro 255 inline pump
Wavetrac LSD
Spec stage 2+ clutch / steel SMFW
BMS Clutch Delay valve
M3 Subframe bushings
Rogue Tranny mounts
Powerflex differential bushings


I plan on going RB turbos next year, but will do coil overs and lockdown kit before then. Other mods I think I should do are Forged diverter valves and OCC.

Any tips would be appreciated. Is the devils own kit okay? 300psi pump and solenoid w bms fsb, and stainless steel lines?

Also with my setup should I go dual DO10 nozzle sizes?

Thanks Again

The 2.3 gallon bms integrated tank I have came with a 200psi pump which seems to be plenty for my dual nozzle setup (cm10/cm7). The setup you mentioned should be fine. I also purchased brand new 1/4" OD high pressure nylon hose from Grainger.

I did the devils own setup with stainless lines. It has been rock solid so far with only a slight issue with the solenoid. If you ground the DO solenoid to the BMS fsb it may not work, I had to ground the solenoid to the chassis. This was an issue that another member had as well. I am only using one DO10 nozzle, I have read that is enough spray for FBO. People have talked about loosing atomization with two nozzles, I have no facts to back that up though.

You lose atomization with 1 big nozzle, you gain atomization with 2 small nozzles.

make sure you use compression fittings and not push type fittings.

Also, make sure you use teflon tape/paste on the thread to thread contact areas. heres a good link. scroll down to the "sealant" and "pipe fitting" sections.

I always liked getting higher rated equipment than required to avoid stressing units, or in this case the pump. But it sounds like a 200 psi wont stress for my applications. Do you know if this will be the same with RB turbos? I want to set up a kit that won't require much or any modifications when i upgrade the turbos.

How do you like the nylon hose? I'm considering this over the stainless steel lines primarily because of the savings associated with it.

What size nozzles would you recommend for my mods?

What size nozzles for would you recommend with my mods and RB turbos?


I'm using the JB4 and am considering going with this kit since many seem to like it. I've read stories about improper flow and air in plastic lines with this kit. I do not blame the kit itself for the issues (maybe installer ), but worry about experiencing similar problems.
