ess and meth!

I just wanted to know if anyone with an ess supercharger was running meth, what kind of meth kit and how much more power your making. I think it would be a really good idea

thanks guys

Im getting a vt 625 kit in a few months ,want to play around with a meth kit as well.

Ive been looking into aqua mist's HFS-3 model, pretty much a good whole round meth system, included with a gauge, flow sensor and all the business, very good price too.

It uses a PWM system as well unlike the PPS systems with SP's, labonte etc.

Just so you know if you wanted to go down the route of doing a vishnu meth kit, look into AM's as they supply all the hardware for Vishnu and include items that don't come with vishnu's too.

Hope this helps a bit!

ill be making a thread when I've done the above anyway.

We have several customers who have added water / meth systems to our kits and most of the major brands work fine.

I'm running the Aquamist HFS3 on my Gintani Stage 3 and I love it compared to my previous AEM set up

Go with either vishnu or AM IMO, they are my choices of PWM systems.

Even though I like SP's design,clarity,simpleness, its a PPS style which is a shame and is must less effective.

How is performance once you added the HFS-3?

Be interesting to know how the car responded once you added it?

Any idea about rwhp production at the moment with this setup.

I've done about 500kms of driving on the Aquamist set up! I love it

the power is noticeable to the point that my car goes sideways very easy now.

I'll make some more comments once I have more mileage on the car.
