if you're going to have one custom made, how about one fitted in the spare tire? That would be cool

you talked to snow performance? Maybe the next GB can be their system
plus they're local.

Actually Snow Performance uses the same pump as everyone else (ShurFlo 8000 series) except the last time anyone checked they are still using the viton seals instead of the more durable EPDM. Same line and instant fittings as well. I guess Devils Own could charge $100 more for the basic kit and include a tank like http://www.alcohol-injection.com/2-quart-tank-p-31.html
or even http://www.alcohol-injection.com/4-quart-tank-p-32.html
Devils Own is coming out with some new things to improve their systems even more. They just released a new check valve that looks promising and I know of a couple other thing in the works as weel.

This 7 quart tank they offer is really nice though.

There Safe Injection Box is pretty bad *** as well.

If you are really unhappy with your kit or wishing you would have bought a Snow kit instead I'll gladly buy it all back from you. I do wish you were getting the good results everyone else is.

my snow lines where red but they are the same spec as home depot lines th eprice for the snow bassic includes 3 jets, and ran me 250 bucks with a GB it probably would go down even further. I dunno they seem about the same to me. i just found snow first.
The pump is the same and lines are to from what i see. Viton seals arent to bad.

The Vitons seem to be a point of failure if you use anything besides water. I think all the companys started out using the vitons but most ended up going to the EPDM to handle the methanol and alcohol.

FWIW if we all wanted the absolute most **** kit money no object we would all be flying Aquamist kits. Most the kits out there are Miatas while the Aquamist is a Supercharged Gto.
For those of you not familiar with Aquamist, they range in price from around $600-$2000+
