AEM Methanol Injection System (w/ New V3 Nozzle System)
THE AEM WATER/METHANOL INJECTION SYSTEM ADVANTAGE
Water/methanol injection for forced induction (turbocharged or supercharged) gas-powered race engines is a proven means for effectively reducing engine inlet air temperatures and suppressing harmful detonation. This allows racers to reliably increase boost and advance ignition timing—without using high-octane racing fuel—for power gains of up to 20%. AEM’s Water/Methanol Injection Systems utilize the most robust hardware combined with more advanced features than any other comparably priced water/methanol system.
Water/Methanol for All Boost Levels of Forced Induction Gas Race Engines
AEM offers two different water/methanol controller designs for gas vehicles:
One is boost dependent for forced induction vehicles up to 35 PSI of boost (kit PN 30-3300). The Boost Dependent controller has an on-board manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor with a molded-in nipple for a boost hose pickup.
The second controller (Kit PN 30-3350) features a multiple input design that enables users to install AEM’s Water/Methanol Injection Kit on ultra-high boost vehicles (above 35 PSI) using a 0-5v voltage-based external MAP sensor.
Note: FOR OPTIMUM RESULTS, ALL WATER/METHANOL INJECTION SYSTEMS AND FLOW GAUGES SHOULD BE RUN WITH AN WMI INLINE FILTER (PN 30-3003). For additional insurance against unintended flow, particularly when the pump and tank must be installed higher than the injections nozzle, we recommend adding our optional High-Flow Low-Current WMI Solenoid (PN 30-3326).
Robust, Easy to Use Controller Designs
The new controller designs (Boost Dependent Kit PN 30-3300 & Multi Input Kit PN 30-3350) feature large, turn-resistant knobs and larger numbering to easily set accurate start and full activation points, with covered status LED and test buttons for added splash resistance. A plug is integrated into the controller housing for mating to the redesigned wiring harness’s positive-lock connector. The Boost Dependent controller housing has a molded-in, barbed nipple to accept a boost hose and a wiring legend on the back. Both controller housings feature an easy to access integrated fuse and molded mounting tabs.
Innovative Injector Design Delivers Faster Cooling with Less Fluid Used
Our breakthrough injector design uses unique Swirl Generator Technology that improves atomization to deliver faster inlet temp cooling and uses less fluid to maintain inlet air cooling. We include three Swirl Generators that deliver 250cc, 500cc, and 1000cc of flow. The AEM V3 WMI injector is included in every AEM Water/Methanol injection kit and is a direct replacement/upgrade for the V2 injector in older systems (V3 Injector PN 30-3315).
In testing at AEM, the new V3 250cc WMI nozzle and the V2 250cc WMI nozzle both achieved a 90-degree inlet temp reduction; however, the V3 nozzle design achieved this reduction nearly 6.5 seconds faster. Consider that on an average sportsman drag car this can represent close to 40% of track time. On a road race car, applying more timing 6.5 seconds faster can mean a critical time to pass on a corner exit.
We then tested a V3 250cc injector against a V2 500cc injector to see if the larger V2 injector would improve cooling speed. The V2 500cc injector achieved nearly identical cooling speed as the V3 250cc injector, but it required almost 44% more fluid to achieve the same cooling. Less fluid used means fewer refills of your WMI tank and less money spent refilling it. Using the V2 500cc nozzle with a one-gallon tank, you will get close to 7 minutes and 50 seconds of run time at full pressure. Using the V3 250cc nozzle with a one-gallon tank, you will get 13 minutes and 30 seconds of run time at full pressure.
