SNOW PERFORMANCE SNO-50100 STAGE 3 BOOST COOLER WATER-METH INJECTION
SNO-50100Regular price $842.10 Save $-842.10
Add water-methanol injection to any diesel in any state with the 50-state legal Snow Performance SNO-50100 Stage 3 Boost Cooler Water-Meth Injection. Water methanol injection will increase your horsepower while improving mileage by giving your fuel more complete combustion. This water methanol injection kit comes with the VC-50 controller (52mm gauge) that is designed to mount on the dashboard or steering column and allows you to custom tailor the OLED screen with 7 colors to choose from (Red, Orange, White, Blue, Yellow, Green, Purple). This controller also functions as a boost gauge while also displaying percentage of injection, secondary nozzle activation, prime button, and fault codes (Clogged Line/Broken Line/Pump Failure/Solenoid Failure) if your water-meth injection kit isn’t functioning as it should.
This Snow Performance SNO-50100 Stage 3 Boost Cooler Water-Meth Injection Kit uses the 2D mapped VC-50 controller to command injection based on boost pressure and EGTs to maintain cold air inlet temperatures. Starting and full throttle injection points can be adjusted to allow you to customize the engagement of water-methanol to suit the needs of your engine while towing to increase mileage. Also included in this kit is a 300 PSI Ultra High Output pump, 7-gallon reservoir, mounting hardware, anodized aluminum straps, fittings and either quick connect red nylon tubing or -4AN braided stainless-steel line.

What are the benefits of Water-Methanol injection?
Great HP per dollar value.
Decreases of 250 ° F are common using a 50/50% Water-Methanol mix.
More Horsepower while lowering EGTs makes this a great addition for hauling the heaviest loads.
Is this technology new with Turbo Diesels?
No. Water-methanol injection has been used extensively for years in as a common means of cooling the intake charge and reducing exhaust gas temps in high performance truck/tractor pullers. Also, truckers have used water injection for years to increase fuel mileage and lower EGTs.
Methanol’s high latent heat of vaporization makes it an excellent air charge cooler which means a denser mixture and more horsepower. It is extremely toxic and should be handled with rubber gloves in well ventilated areas only. Care should be taken to avoid skin contact.
Where can I purchase Methanol?
Methanol can generally be purchased where racing fuels are sold. Also, most gas line dryers like "Heat" are simply Methanol. Suppliers of industrial chemicals can also supply Methanol usually at a higher price than fuel suppliers. If all else fails, most windshield washer fluids are up to 40% Methanol and 58% water.
Can I use windshield washer fluid?
Although most contain some glycol and detergent, most windshield washer fluids are up to 50% alcohol (methanol, ethanol, isopropanol) and make an excellent Boost Cooler. Try to find one that indicates "contains methanol".
What ratio of Water-Methanol is recommended?
A 50/50 ratio is recommended. Diesel applications where water conditions the combustion of the methanol so combustion timing isn't affected.
Will water-methanol harm my engine?
In theory, at recommended quantities, most of the mixture is evaporated before it hits the combustion chamber. Also, injection only takes place at high boost levels minimizing cylinder wash concerns. Engines that have been torn down after two years of water/methanol usage have shown no wear issues only clean combustion chambers.
Why is Water-Methanol injection so effective on Diesels?
Unlike gasoline engines, the power in a turbo diesel is largely a function of fuel. The problem with continually adding fuel is that you reach a point where the exhaust gas temperatures become prohibitive (over 1500 degrees F). A 50/50% Methanol/Water mix will decrease EGT's approximately 250°F while increasing power 70-100HP.
