Default Snow Performance stage 2 install

About 3/4 of the way into installing the system. I am using the factory windshield washer res as nothing fits better and made an aluminum bracket to hold the pump- and you can see the controller against the firewall behind it. I'm also installing the AEM Failsafe and I took apart the factory vent to install the gauge. Still have to install the nozzle and wire it up....

Any reason you didn't use Snow's failsafe?

you might want to be careful with the pump mounted there, i think they are suppose to be kept away from heat. but that said ive seen alot mounted in simular places, just something to look at just incase.

The pump is on the "cold side"- other than that it would have to be trunk mounted which means a lot of tubing between the pump and the nozzle.

The AEM unit does everything the Snow Perf unit does, and I got a great deal on the AEM on Ebay. I actually like the AEM gauge better as well.


Finished up the install last night- ended up changing nozzles as it was dumping a lot of water. Went to a 100cc nozzle and adjusted the controller to come on at 4psi and max at 19 (which I don't hit- max is now 11). This feels about right. I'll know more when we dyno tune it. I will say boost inceased from 9 to 11 psi with the water injection. Maybe b/c it's pre SC the rotor clearances are tightened up?

Once I have the other M45 rebuilt (coated rotors, et all) and install a smaller pulley I'll take to the dyno for a final tune.
