Advice Requested

OK, picked up a used Devils Own universal system for $100. Guy had the 3GPH nozzle and the 6-30PSI pressure switch with it. Looking to bump the nozzle up to a 7 or 10.

Not looking for power as much as maybe a slight boost in mileage and help in keeping the temps down when towing.

Will run the switch at 6psi.

Am I on the right track?

Has anyone run anything besides water and water/meth mixtures?

What size fluid tank do you have with your water-meth setup? I have a cooling mist setup with a 5-6 gpm nozzle and it will empty the tank (only 1.5 gallon) in 15-20 min. I've never used anything in mine except water-meth, usually 80-20 mix.

Currently I have a little 2-1/2 quart tank to test with. Plan is to mount a 7 gallon or larger. Will be finishing the install today.

After reading more of TheStepChild's threads, I'm going to run the nozzle I have and go from there. Guess I'll see how fast I go thru water.

Starting to think I'll also pick up the lower boost switch first, set it at 2psi, and try that.

I've also mounted a switch inside to turn the system on and off. Won't turn it on until temps get close to average and shut it down a few minutes before the destination.

I had a toggle switch in my cab to turn it on/off as well. I only used mine when pulling a grade with our camper. Saw about a 75 degree drop in egt's.

isopropyl will also work. But don't expect the same things for meth/eth and isopropyl.

Thinking outside the box here a little. Anyone ever tried mixing something like simple green with the water to help clean up the intake?

You don't need any chemicals to clean it. I saw pictures somewhere, they may have been from StepChild I don't remember, but someone showed how it cleaned up the whole intake manifold that was covered in soot before. Just water/meth should do the trick.

I think there are alot of ways to get it to spray, boost psi, EGT, toggle switch seems the most simple,

If i were going to do it, might get at least around a 10gallon tank, and toggle switch a small nozzle to run constant, then maybe have another big nozzle to trigger if EGT gets high
