Not sure what all I need. Heck, I thought I could save some money by not purchasing a full kit since I have a lot of stuff here already BUT maybe I'll just do a full kit anyway. Perhaps I'll just sell all my other stuff to recoup some of the money.

Anyone want to buy some nozzles and pressure switches for a DIY kit?

The 3 GPH will be just fine and give you room to grow. I am going to order another 5 kits tommorow if you want to jump in.

the pump wieghs about 3 lbs give or take from hefting a similiar pump, the best way to prevent siphoning is to have the mounting point for the pump as low as possible while keeping the resivior as high as possible so as not to starve the pump full of water with my 1 gallon extra resevior i believe i added 16-20 lbs to the wieght of my miata with this mod but most of it is over the rear axle so this will help your traction. the pump will not flow unless it is on so realy the only potential syphoning is done with what is in the lines post pump. even then i have noticed no significant siphonage since my install.

These pumps also have no trouble pulling 3-4 feet uphill. I had it configured that way in my Tacoma and never had any issues. I ran a check valve before the nozzle as well.

well i like to keep the feed as downhill as possible becouse of the g forces we generally see in cornering and acceleration this will help give peice of mind.

I can understand why that would be a concern. I am going back to FWD so no large G forces when cornering for me
Actually my last Gti with a Quaife differential was pretty freakin impressive.

That one had a Vortech V1 at 10 psi plus every other bolton. Around 290 whp. I wish I was into WI back then because I had no intercooler and it was as slow as stock on 100 degree days.

So would it be best to mount the resevoir in the trunk along with the pump , or will we want to mount the pump under the hood or just put it all under there?

You can mount the pump and reservoir in the trunk and have the checkvalve up near the nozzle if you want a really clean install. You still need to run a wire back from the pressure switch though...unless you go with the progressive controller. You can mount the pump up front if you want though.

I can't wait for this stuff and winter break to come. I ordered a progressive kit with voltage on the dials instead of boost, a 2.5Gal tank for the trunk, low fluid warning lever, and a soleniod to rig up a safety switch if I get waaayyy to low on fluid. When I get too low it'll just bypass the mbc. Huge thanks goes out to WOT for giving us this great gb. to you

No problem. You should descibe to the guys here your idea you are trying with the boost cutting fluid level setup. I think it was a great idea.

The idea is to piggyback the signal the warning lever sends when it has been engaged by a low fluid level to the solenoid. So say if I mount the lever so that it will trigger when I have around 15-20% fluid remaining. It will turn on the warning light mounted in the cabin that it comes with and also the piggybacked signal line will actuate the solenoid so that it bypasses my mbc. This will then limit me from boosting over my wastegates 6psi spring pressure. So its basically a $30 safety measure that could potentially save my engine were the rainy day ever to occure where I ran out of fluid in the middle of mid to high boost.

The 2.5Gal tank should fit nicely beside the battery and provide me with alot of time between fillups (I'm lazy...so sue me!!). Can't wait to put this all together. I'm not entirely looking forward to running all the wires and tuning, but driving it when I'm done will surely prove that it pays off.

not bad for a safety measure but the logistics of mounting the pump under the hood are horrible when you get the pump you will see what i mean it could be done but the trunk is the easiest way trust me. the 2.5 gallon tank is a good idea as well should give you plenty of leeway

ya, the plan was to put it all in the trunk from the beginning. I should have mentioned that in the post i guess.
