Back in the 80's I had the Edlebrock single injector water injection system. This is suppose to increase the quality of fuel and eliminate pinging by spraying water down the intake. I actually built a double nozzle (with spray bottle nozzles) and using a window washer tank and motor. Controlled with a humidistat, wouldn't operate in the rain or overly damp weather that way. Built this for my Li'l Red Truck, 4 bbl. Carter Thermoquad.

So there's water or methanol (wood alcohol) injection and a combo, with few posts on forum. Think something came up several years ago. W/M injection goes back to the 60's anyways and was OEM on some cars. Yet nobody with a Boss seems to have it. The meth injection is supposed to increase octane to 116.

Now ideally this is where the intake throttle body spacer would work to have a injector port. Have seen those tapped for nitrous oxide injectors. Apples and oranges there, car needn't be boosted in any manner to use water/methinol injection.

Couldn't get anything to paste yesterday, all the ref. returned as blank pages.

I won't be trying it, but maybe if I were say 30 years younger, didn't say smarter.

Here's an article about a Boss Mustang, would really like to be informed by somebody on forum with their experience. http://www.mustangan...jection-system/ Tests were done with TK also, makes me wonder (all over again)?

Con't- After reviewing write up I can pretty much understand the theory with it. Think the kits fall out of popularity because the tanks forget to get filled on an ongoing basis. Now NOS requires its own extra fuel injector to cool the nitrous oxide (laughing gas) charge to avoid pre-detonation with that. Nasty stuff, at least for engine use. Probably better safeguards these days but in the '80's anything went and mine was only a 50HP shot.

All that's happening is your putting extra oxygen (not just air) into the motor. The nitrogen keeps the oxygen from burning off prematurely and the two elements will separate at approx. 550deg. F., your running on an oxygen boost.

A sulphur dioxide content is added so the driver isn't going down the street sniffing in the laughing gas, will get deathly sick first. Nope, no more for me.
