Hi all, airfooter asked me to get in on this.
Here is my water background-
2000 Excursion 250k on truck
135k on wvo with Vegistroke V3- (What a excellent system!)
Been spraying water for about 80k
Water system is a Cooling Mist CMGS, injecting based on boost and egt- 2 maps. Single nozzle is about 250cc/m
I run straight hose water except for winter when I add just enough wwf to keep it from freezing.
I pulled my HyperMax splits after about 90k of wvo use and they looked normal, no unusual buildup on the nozzel, they were used injectors when I got them also-(see pic). I started running water because of the big a$$ nozzles on the HyperMax sticks and was worried about coking from the constant haze I had when on wvo. I probably ran 60k between stock injectors and the Max's before ever starting the water injection.
I can spray 7 gallons in 350 miles or less if towing the camper, it helps keep the egts down and should keep the engine clean.
I now run single shots that burn much cleaner but will continue to spray the water. I have never noticed any mileage increase or a power bump but I use very little meth.
Has the water saved my engine? Got me, I think it can help keep things clean over many many thousands of miles.
Hope this helps!
