Snow performance kits??

Anybody had any experience with these kits?
i just ordered the stage one boost cooler kit and was just wondering the best place to inject this stuff
some people have said to put the nozzle in the top of the air cleaner a spray it through the carb others have said put it in a spacer between the carb and blower

I have purchased two of these kits, one for a Dodge Ram with a Cummins and the other a generic kit for my Ford Modular engine. Both kits were made by Snow Performance, and both kit were well made and thought out. I have read a lot of water/methanol injection and there is a lot of performance to be had, but there is also some down sides as well. It's like anything else in this world, you have to give some to get some. Basically the drawbacks of water/methanol are some slight rust issues in the manifold and head, the fact that the stock holding tank is not very big, although there are optional tanks that are much larger, and the physical constraints of the modern car make many installs very tight. The up sides are added horse power, lower intake air temps, more density in the intake system, and increased resistance to pre-ignition. The choice is yours to make, Good luck

Either will work, I use the breather top method because it's sprays with the air flow direction. Put the nozzle aimed at the primary barrels of the carb.

This is why I went with an AIS (alcohol injection systems) kit. They have a trunk mount tank and it holds about 2 gallons. I run a roots blower and have the water/alky injected under the carbs (in the carb adapter plate). Aluminum heads and intake so no worries about rust.

You are not the only one who is doing this so:
Contact the manufacturer. They will get you setup with the right nozzle.
Too much injected water (or too soon) will cause misfireing. Too little won't supress the detonation at high boost.
