Water/Meth injection basically fogs a mixture (usually 50% distilled water and 50% Methanol) into the intake using a special nozzle, pump and a way to activate it.

It works best on turbo cars, be it petrol or diesel. but is also useful on n/a's for prolonging the life of the engine, reducing egt's, giving better mpg and reducing knock.

It has been tested and it assists the burn so well that when using normal fuel (in a petrol engine) you can use a map made for running on 110 octane race fuel.

The combination of methanol and the hydrogen from the water being turned to gas in the chamber means a larger bang.


We are currently putting together a kit for both n/a and turbo cars.

also i dont understand what you mean about ports on the wastegate? the wastegate opens when it sees a set pressure, if your talking about the low/high boost on a glanza/gt thats controlled with a solenoid and switch, increasing pressure to the wastegate on low boost setting and opening up to allow actual pressure for high boost
