silicon wont hold the pressure.. unless the pump you are using is low pressure one..
what kit do you have?

4mm is too big , use a heat proof pipe. Make sure u buy decent quality meth coz u get cheap 'offcuts' , also increase timing with lemmiwinks. My meth comes in at about 1 bar off boost, the 1.8T's dont like large quantities injected so becareful. It made a HUGE difference! :)

Wmi reduced my intake temps by 30 degrees! I run 70% meth with 30% water, the nozzle is mounted by the map sensor and the pump is mounted behind the front bumper

Too much meth there - 50/50 is the max that the cooling mist pumps allow before their internals begin to get eaten by the meth...

what size connections to the nizzle/pump?
they are push fit connections usually. plastic/nylon airline small bore type pipes.
1/4" size on US kits usually.

silicon vac hose is not going to be correct for this

yh it as got the 1/4" pipe with push on connections.. air line pipe as in like air compressor

thanks

he does'nt make devils own, he supplies them.. DO themselves have been dire in turning round their failed controllers... Not your friend.. never dealt with him personally. I'm sure he's fine.
I think, DO had an issue with their design, as the ones I had fail on several customer cars were all what looks to be a superceeded controller, but my condifence in DO given the hassle it caused me has gone.
AEM get my business now... and boy thats a decent kit, well price and fully featured out of the box, better engineered imho. I have used Aquamist, Snow Performance, Devils Own, and now AEM... and AEM is the best kit I have yet used.

Fair comment. If you've tried them all................you're in a place to call judgement.
