Progressive methanol system for ess vt2

hey, im trying to cool my car down on track and from another thread meth/water cooling seems like it would help me.

anyone can give me good suggestions on what would work well with a vt2-600?

Aquamist hfs-3 is what I'm using. Hands down the best system out there. Sprays off of injector duty cycle. You need to tap into the positive and negative wires off of one of your injectors. Benefit to this vs off of boost is your spray is perfectly controlled. Depending on how much fuel and throttle your car receives, the system monitors and applies the meth/water.

I have used Aquamist for over 10 years. I currently run an HFS4 on my turbo E36M3, but the HFS3 is fine (the HFS4 was the same price during a group buy when it was released, but its main adantage is for direct injection cars and ours are not).

^ ^ Agree above....great system.

But if you have $$ burning a hole in your wallet and you don't want to hack up your car and put additional guages, etc, you can use the Procede CAN integration for your progressive meth controller and fail safe. It uses your inside blinkers lights to detect flow so you don't have to take your eyes off the road.

I like the Procede system as well. Vishnu buys some of its parts from Aquamist. I run the Vishnu Procede with Meth on my naturally aspirated E90M3 (tuned for meth) and the Aquamist HFS4 on my turbo E36M3 (not tuned for meth).

i recommend the AEM water meth setup.... works perfectly without all the bells and whistles and uses high quality parts.... only difference being you'll need to run it on the dyno to work out which knozzle suits your needs. imo alot of times the simple route is just as effective.

I thought cooling was not an issue, especially with the intercooled VT2 system.

were not talking about that type of cooling.... this just adds another very nice safetynet with the added bonus of more power due to lower AITs... what i like about meth is lower cylinder temps, lower EGT, steam clean effect on internals......
