Default Anyone spraying meth directly into their supercharger inlet?

I'm trying to weigh up the pros and cons of spraying meth directly into the supercharger inlet. I've seen it done on plenty of other cars before, but haven't seen it discussed on here very much.

It seems like a great way to reduce intake temps significantly, by not only cooling the supercharger and the intercooler but also having a much longer contact period with the compressed air than spraying it just before the TB.

The potential only downside that I see is that it could be expelled through the BOV into the engine bay. Although there is a chance of this, I'm thinking that by the time the meth has made contact with the blades of the supercharger and the housing, it will almost entirely have been vaporised anyway? Also the BOV on my car is welded to the front of my intercooler, so any meth would have to make its way through 3 radiators (extra cooling win?) before it could come into contact with anything remotely hot enough to cause it to ignite?

What do you guys think?

I'm guessing we're talking centri blowers here, I always thought it was best to spray as late as possible. Cooling the air before it is compressed seems like it would just get heated back up by the time it got into the cylinder. Also I am not sure what kind of corrosion the meth could do to the blower or intercooler; and your flammable bov thought seems like a good concern as well. Interested to see what others say though

I am with you here on this the meth will also sooner are late get to the parts in the blower top mount blower has a statement that says don't put meth on the blades and screws of the blades. Robert

Yes talking about centriís, and I probably should have said that spraying before the blower would be in addition to also spraying at the usual place just before the TB.

Iíve found lots of people talking about the possibility of corrosion to the blades of the blower but no actual image proof, there are also lots of people who have been running this kind of setup for years without any detriment to the blades.

Intercooler corrosion is one thing I didnít think about if enough meth is left behind and pools in there it could eat it alive.

hmmm

Spraying into the blades will actually wear the blades over time. Itís not so much as corrosion as is actual wear, think of a water pump weíre the water/meth will wear the impeller down over time.

an article on placement of nozzle.

I wonder what the actual wear rate would be like? If its game over after a year then spraying into the blades is definitely a no-no for a street car. If however it will only have an effect after 5+ years then I'd be a little more tempted.

I'm still not completely put off the idea. I need some pictures of ruined procharger blades, or cars going up in flames of meth lol.

I don’t think you’ll see any cars going up in flames. Back in my turbo days there were plenty of guys who sprayed before the turbo and said it worked better. Those guys were looking for ever HP they could get to be Dyno kings. Just don’t know how much you would gain in a supercharger setup. I also think you would probably have a higher chance of wear using a bell setup than with meth.

I agree no way I would have a bell on a setup unless it was on the track only. Just not worth it to me . Robert

Here is a good article I found

Positioning The Water Injection Nozzle


One of the most common questions we receive from customers is "Where is the best place to install my water injection nozzle ?". Unfortunately, the answer to this question is often times different for everyone as it depends on the application. There are many factors such as type engine, supercharger or turbocharger, EFI or carbureted, intercooled or non-intercooled and so forth. In this section will go over the various locations in which you can mount your water injection nozzle or nozzles. As well as locations in which you do not want to install your nozzles and explaining the reasons for both. Are you ready? Lets begin.

EFI/Carbureted Turbocharged & Centrifugal Applications

Due to their similarities in system design and layout, we have combined both turbocharger and centrifugal superchargers applications in one category as the nozzle locations are the same for both applications.

water methanol injection

1. Pre-Turbocharger/Centrifugal Injection

By placing the water methanol injection nozzle or nozzles pre-turbocharger or centrifugal supercharger and injecting a fine precise amount of water methanol into the air inlet of the compressor can have a dramatic positive effect on compressor efficiency (particularly with turbocharger systems and high boost centrifugal applications) while substantially lowering discharge temperatures at the source of compression. On 8-25 psi applications, users can expect to see a 70-160+ degree drop in compressor discharge temperatures. While reductions of 160-240+degree's can be had on 25-60+ psi high boost applications such as diesels.

How is this possible?

When water methanol is first injected, we're able to begin slightly cooling the incoming air entering the compressor. This air is already relatively cool in relation to the ambient temperature of the day as it has yet to be compressed and heated. Depending on the temperature of the day and how the air inlet is plumped and where the air is being drawn in from, the incoming air entering into the inlet of the compressor commonly ranges between 5-20 degree's above ambient. Only minor cooling of the air charge occurs at this stage before it enters into the compressor. More importantly, we are about to dramatically cool the air that is being compressed and heated within the turbocharger.

It's important to understand it is here that the heat is being generated.

water methanol injectionA turbochargers impeller can spin at an astonishing speed between 100,000- 150,000 rpms. While centrifugal supercharger impellers spin between 40,000-65,000+ rpm. Between each pair of blades on an impeller exists a wedge shaped open space which the air fills in. As the impeller is spinning, this wedge shaped air pocket is subjected to tremendous centrifugal forces and is forced outward away from the center of the impeller to the outer edges. It is here where the air begins to stack up and compress against the compressor housing forming the heat as it makes it way into the scroll.

water methanol injectionAs the compressed air heats up, it tries to further expand, making it now more difficult for the heated compressed air to pass through and exit the compressor thereby lowering the compressor efficiency. In addition, this compressed air is taking up more space within the compressor limiting new incoming air from being processed. Furthermore, the hot compressed air exiting the turbocharger is less dense as it has been heated significantly. Therefore, containing less power producing oxygen while making the engine considerably more prone to detonation.

By cooling the air as it's being compressed within the turbocharger or centrifugal supercharger, the compressed air is now substantially cooler, more dense, taking less space and moves more efficiently through the compressor allowing us to pack and process more air through the turbocharger or centrifugal supercharger. This leads us to our second benefit. Improved compressor efficiency.

All of this results in improved compressor efficiency. Because of this improved efficiency the compressor does not have to work as hard to produce the same amount of boost as without the water methanol injection. In turn it raises the maximum mass air flow of the compressor. Thereby, making a smaller turbocharger or centrifugal supercharger now perform like a larger turbocharger or centrifugal supercharger with the addition of the water methanol injection.

water methanol injectionLastly, as already mentioned above, pre-compressor injection substantially lowers the discharge temperatures exiting the compressor. The engine is now less prone to detonation through this reduction in air charge temperatures. Furthermore, the use of an intercooler is dramatically reduced and in some applications no longer needed as it may not offer substantial further cooling effects in return for the pressure drop caused by it. Removal of the intercooler could now offer a further increase in boost pressure at the engine as well as compressor efficiency.

While all of this sounds very exciting. To do this properly requires proper sizing of the nozzles in relation to the compressor size and output. Additionally, the type fluid being used also effects the size of the water injection nozzle selected. When done properly, very little of the water methanol mist injected into the inlet of the compressor survives the process. Thereby, discharging a much cooler air charge with a relativity high humidity with very little or no water methanol droplets present.

When injecting water, we can quickly over saturate the air charge and have an excess of fluid discharging the compressor. Water has a much higher latent heat of vaporization, nearly double that of methanol, and does not flash (instantly evaporate) like that of methanol or other alcohols when injected into a hot air stream. Therefore, a smaller nozzle must be used when spraying pure water.

water methanol injectionA better choice for pre-compressor injection is a greater concentration of methanol vs. water or pure methanol. Methanol instantly flashes (evaporating) as soon as it enters into a hot compressor and meets the heat within it. By using an alcohol, this dramatically reduces the amount of actual fluid exiting the compressor due to it‘s fast evaporation. Additionally, methanol offers much greater cooling effect then water. Furthermore, methanol is also less dense then water thereby having a softer impact on the impeller. The specific gravity of pure methanol is .792 @ 68į F compared to water which is 1.00 @ 64į F.

One major concern associated with pre-compressor injection is erosion of the impeller. This is only likely to occur when injecting solid stream of water at the impeller of a turbocharger or using an excessively large nozzle. Impeller erosion is highly unlikely with centrifugal supercharger as they spin at a considerably slower speed then turbochargers. Impeller erosion is of little concern with centrifugal superchargers.

2. Pre-Intercooler Injection

While pre-intercooler injection may at first seem like a logical approach. Thereby, combining the effects of water methanol injection within the air-to-air intercooler for an increased synergistic effect. It is not so. Matter of fact, it's the opposite. The cooling effects and benefits offered by the water methanol injection are less when injected here then in all other locations. Further, more other issues arise such as puddling which can form in the bottom of the intercooler. Additionally, pour atomization will occur as the fluid will accumulate in the individual air to air intercooler core walls of the intercooler forming larger droplets which will eventually break away resulting in pour atomization. We do not recommend pre-intercooler injection.

3. Post Intercooler Injection

Post intercooler injection technically refers to injection anywhere after the intercooler. However, in this discussion we are specifically taking about post intercooler injection which takes place directly after the air-to-air intercooler on an application which has a considerably lengthy discharge tubes as shown in the picture above.

Here the user has numerous locations and plenty of space available to inject after the intercooler. Often times users will believe by placing the nozzle further away from the intake of the engine, they will have better atomization, better charge cooling and ultimately better performance. In a case like the engine above, placing the nozzles directly after the intercoolers is not as desirable as placing them directly inches away front of the throttle body or carburetor, as this is excessively further away then needed.

While this will result in a well atomized, cool air charge entering into the intake manifold. Much of the water methanol injection would have already evaporated leaving little injection available for internal cylinder cooling, added detonation control and reduced EGT's. Additionally, In some case's the air charge can actually begin to heat back up due to excessively long discharge pipes being routed around hot radiator, turbocharger, hot pipes and exhaust.

Location of the mass air meter and IAT or ACT sensor location should always be considered. Never inject pre-mass air. Only in pre-turbocharger applications when done properly can one inject prior to the mass air.

4. Pre Throttle Body/Carburetor Injection

water methanol injectionPositioning the water methanol injection nozzles or nozzles just before the throttle body or carburetor on turbocharged and centrifugal supercharger applications is by far the most common position and one of the most beneficial of all. Furthermore, most every application can easily be fitted in this manor. With injection taking place just before the throttle body/carburetor, inches before the intake of the engine, significant cylinder cooling and detonation suppression is achieved. Additionally, air charge temperatures are significantly reduced through the intake manifold.

Care should always be taken concerning adequate distribution. In many cases intake manifolds can have individual intake ports beginning right after the throttle body. In applications such as this, the nozzle need only be pulled back away from the throttle body 4-5 inches to ensure proper distribution between all intake ports and not feeding one more then others.

Many of our concerns are eliminated when injecting in this location such as injecting prior to the mass air meter, intercooler or being excessively to far away from the intake of the engine. With injection taking place right before the intake of the engine, the effects are maximized.

As already mentioned, positioning the water methanol injection nozzles or nozzles just before the throttle body or carburetor on turbocharged and centrifugal supercharger applications is by far the most common position and one of the most beneficial of all as it offer excellent air charge cooling and exceptionable detonation control and cylinder cooling.

5. Post Throttle Body/Carburetor Injection

In some applications the need for injection after the throttle body or carburetor is necessary. This may be due to lack of other locations that are available. For instance with carbureted applications where users do not easily have the ability to spray before the carburetor, they may slip a carburetor plate under the carburetor and drill and tap it for the nozzles.

water methanol injectionWhen doing so it's absolutely imperative that the use of a check valve or solenoid is used to prevent siphoning during times when the engine is not in boost and under a vacuum. Unlike other competitors kits which do not include a one-way check valve or solenoid and charge additionally for it. We offer one-way check valves standard with every system as an integrated solution rather than just an after-thought.

As always and more so then ever, care must be taken to ensure proper distribution between all intake ports. Locating the nozzles after the throttle body or carburetor greatly raises the concern for proper distribution of the water methanol injection as injection is taking place right in the intake manifold plenum. Users must evaluate their intake manifold design and nozzle or nozzles location and determine if proper distribution will be maintained before injecting.

Post throttle body/carburetor injection should only be considered when other more preferable locations are nor available.

6. Direct Port Injection

Direct port injection involves positioning a water/methanol injection nozzle in each intake port of the manifold. This allows for the use of several smaller injectors to be used in each intake port as opposed to one larger nozzle located upstream of the intake manifold servicing all the cylinders. Unfortunately, direct port injection generally requires the removal of the intake manifold to complete installation. Thus making for a considerably longer and more complex installation.

water methanol injectionWhile this does offer the benefit of better atomization, more uniform and even distribution through out the cylinders. In addition to possibly better detonation control, cylinder cooling and reduced EGT's. It's generally not needed as other nozzle locations can be nearly just as effective requiring considerably less work and costs involved. Furthermore, one problem with running direct port injection is users are not likely to monitor differences in IAT's (intake air temperatures)

Port injection is more common on 4 cylinder engines as added cost's for additional nozzles and fittings is acceptable and removal of these type of intake manifold is generally much easier. In general, we do not recommend port injection as we have achieved excellent results using other less complicated and costly nozzle arrangements and locations.

7. Staggered Injection

Staggered injection involves combining pre-compressor injection with an additional secondary nozzle positioned further down the turbocharger or centrifugal supercharger, such as pre-throttle body/carburetor injection. By combining pre-compressor injection with pre-throttle body injection, were able to improve the efficiency of the compressor while dramatically reducing air charge temperatures at the compressor and again at the intake for a combined synergistic effect. Furthermore, the secondary nozzle provides the necessary cylinder cooling, detonation control, and reduced EGT's which the pre-turbocharger nozzles does not.

Best of all, installation remains essentially the same and costs are only marginally more as the addition of a secondary nozzle and tee fitting are all that is required. We highly recommend the staggered injection for all turbocharged applications and high boost centrifugal applications.

For complete details on Pre-compressor injection and Pre-Throttle Body/Carburetor injection these are listed above individually.

Pre-Compressor Injection Precautions

Never place your water methanol injector before the mass air meter. The only time this may be allowed is with pre-compressor injection. When done properly, little or no fluid is exiting the compressor. Only a cooler denser, high humidity air charge with little or no actual fluid remaining in the air charge after the compressor.

When installing your water methanol injection system on a EFI vehicle, it's best to first determine where the IAT or ACT sensor is located before deciding on a nozzle locations. Often times we can position the nozzle before the factory IAT (intake air temperature) or ACT (air charge temperature) sensor location without having to relocate it. This allows us the ability to better use the IAT or ACT sensor for retuning the ECU for the addition of the water methanol injection system.

Unfortunately, many of our newer vehicles have now incorporated the IAT sensor in to the mass air meter. With most applications we can disable this IAT sensor in the mass air meter and install a new separate IAT sensor in a new desirable location.


Positive Displacement Applications

1. Pre-Throttle Body/Carburetor Injection

On EFI/carbureted positive displacement applications, pre-throttle body/carburetor water methanol injection evolves positioning the nozzle or nozzles just before the throttle body or carburetor. This is by far the most common location for EFI positive displacement applications. While carburetor applications commonly injected under the carburetor. See post-carburetor injection below for details.

A common question that often comes up from customers, "Is it safe to inject into the inlet of my supercharger?". Absolutely. In fact, by injecting a water methanol mixture into the inlet of your positive displacement roots or screw style supercharger, not only can we lower discharge air temperatures, we can also lower internal supercharger temperatures and improve supercharger efficiency. The water methanol injection works to help seal the tight clearances between the rotors and the housing improving supercharger efficiency. As many times the supercharger are operating in dry conditions such as EFI applications which have the injectors placed after the supercharger. This is one advantage of having a carburetor mounted above the roots or screw style supercharger as the gasoline has a similar effect.

Another advantage to pre-throttle body/carburetor injection is there is no need for running multiple smaller nozzles to increase atomization on larger output engines. Since the fluid has to physically pass through the superchargers rotors, a single larger nozzle will work just as well as two smaller nozzles compressing of the same output as the one larger nozzle. The result is the same coming out the bottom of the supercharger.

2. Post-Throttle Body/Carburetor Injection

water methanol injection roots superchargerOn EFI/carbureted positive displacement applications, post-throttle body/carburetor water methanol injection evolves positioning the nozzle or nozzles just after or beneath the throttle body or carburetor. This may be due to lack of other locations that are available. For instance with carbureted applications where users do not easily have the ability to spray before the carburetor, they may slip a carburetor plate under the carburetor and drill and tap it for the nozzles.

When doing so it's absolutely imperative that the use of a check valve or solenoid is used to prevent siphoning during times when the engine is not in boost and under a vacuum.

Post throttle body/carburetor injection should only be considered when other more preferable locations are nor available.

3. Direct Port Injection

Direct port injection involves positioning a water/methanol injection nozzle in each intake port of the lower manifold. This allows for the use of several smaller injectors to be used in each intake port as opposed to one or two larger nozzles located before the supercharger servicing all the cylinders. Unfortunately, direct port injection generally requires the removal of the intake manifold to complete installation. Thus making for a considerably longer and more complex installation. Additionally, by injecting after the supercharger we are not able to cool down the rotors and improve the superchargers efficiency as we can with pre-throttle body/carburetor injection.

While this does offer the benefit of better atomization, more uniform and even distribution through out the cylinders. In addition to possibly better detonation control, cylinder cooling and reduced EGT's. It's generally not needed as other nozzle locations can be nearly just as beneficial requiring considerably less work and costs involved.

Wow, chef that article is amazing. It makes me more
inclined to add a small pre-compressor nozzle to my setup. As already said, I think a properly atomised spray would be a lot less likely to damage impellers than using a bell.

Also I would imagine that spraying 100% meth is likely to further reduce the risk of premature impeller wear over using water? I have no evidence but with meth vaporising a lot quicker, I would think that would be beneficial.

it would be interesting to see Dyno before and after or drag times to see if really did do anything, but I agree with you after reading the article. In a turbo situation I would just up the boost and see what timing and temps were doing, but with supercharger all we can really do is see if moving the compressor map does it on itís own with the change in air density.

I may be able to deliver those results myself soon as i'm taking my ride down for a dyno as soon as i've got the tuning a little more dialled in.

I'm just wondering if having the pre-compressor nozzle on a ball valve would be a good idea or not? The plus being that it could be switched off during daily driving and only enabled when at the track/strip. It may not even need a separate tune as such a small nozzle will not likely add any additional fuel to the engine?

Interested to see how it goes, I personally would not worry about a ball valve. I don’t think it will make any difference in fueling. What size nozzle did you go with? Looks like a devilsown one.

Yeah it’s a devilsown DO3 370ml/min one.

Ive got a bit of a bastardised meth system with devils nozzles and lines, but alky pump and controller. I just couldn’t stand the brass fittings on the alky setup. My car is as much show as go.

Heres a little anecdotal feedback. I took the car out today for a bit of a shake-down. About 30 mins of driving, 5-6 hard pulls, 20lbs boost..etc

Got home, put my hand straight on the supercharger and was able to keep it there indefinitely. It was warm, maybe 40c but that is a big change from how it has been in the past.

Obviously no idea how that translates to power, but a positive start.

Is there no issue with the coating on the rotors? Trying to decide whether to spray before or after the LT4 blower. I don't mind the complexity of plumbing the blower as long as there is an advantage over pre rotor injection.
