Forced-induction, naturally-aspirated race engines that are gasoline powered need a way to lower their inlet air temperatures as well as to suppress damaging detonation. This is the reason they are fitted with water/methanol injection system. Such kit usually includes all the components needed to properly carry out water/methanol injection. One of the kit's main inclusions is a liquid tank. If you're in need of such tank for your ride and you're thinking twice about getting a kit or not, allow us to help you make an informed decision by sharing with you how the 1-gallon AEM liquid tank, which is part of the AEM V2 water/methanol injection kit, performs in our race vehicle.
- 1 gallon liquid tank (with built-in low fluid level indicator)
- Fluid level sensor
- 150 psi pump (recirculation style)
- Boost-dependent variable controller
- Three interchangeable injector nozzles for various HP levels
- LED warning light for low fluid and system status
- High amperage pump driver with protection against over voltage, under voltage, and over current
- Error protection output
- Legal in California only for racing vehicles
- 20 ft. high-pressure nylon injection tubing
- Test button (triggers pump manually)
- This water injection kit really improves the performance of our turbocharged engine. It is very helpful to us who don't want to spend much on high-octane racing fuel. The increase in boost and advance ignition timing is also very noticeable.
- We are so thankful that this kit includes everything it needs to work well. It also has all the necessary installation hardware, so we aren't required to do multiple purchases and transactions just to complete everything prior to installation.
- It's been installed in our ride just a few months, so it may be too early to gauge its durability, but with the rate things are going in our ride now, we can say that we can count on it to be of service to us in the coming years.
- Though we were able to properly carry out the installation of this kit, we think it is laborious for those who don't have enough know-how of the systems and parts that the kit has to work hand in hand with. When mounting the gallon, we were particularly careful so that it will be positioned below the injection point. We also made sure that the gallon is installed in the same area as the pump. Such requirements and more made the installation more strenuous.
- This kit usually comes with hefty price tag, so it may not be the right upgrade for race car owners who are on a limited budget.
This kit, which includes a 1-gallon AEM liquid tank, is such a great investment for race car owners who want a noticeable improvement on how their ride performs. It took us a while to install, but all our hard work has been paid off as soon as we began noticing the difference it brings into our ride's performance. Since we are sure that it minimizes exhaust gas temperatures, we now have peace of mind knowing that our engine can operate safely.
