More pictures of the install would be great. This looks very interesting and not too bad of price on the kit. Years ago we had water injection on a old Ford pick up to help with pre ignition problems.

So how exactly does alcohol injection work? What are the advantages/disadvantages of it?

As you probably know, comparing water injection to your c900 and your viggen is like apples compared to oranges. How much research did you do in regards to adding this to a T7 motor? Who is going to re-map your ecu or are you doing this? Just like to know as I too have a viggen and I too had water injection on my spg and thought it would be great. But nobody has added it to a viggen except Nick at GS and even he took it off. Well maybe there are others??
Do you have a wide band, egt guage, dyno, etc so you can see just what is really going on. I'm speculating that you installed a switch so you could turn it off and on, so tests with it off and on would be awesome.
Good luck

like u i had the curiousity so i went for it. and it seems to be working out the car is stock execpt for i have an open air element. i am planing to get it dynod soon. i suppose mabey it wouldnt work so well if the car was staged. but its a nice improvment over stock. and it was kinda free to do cause i had the parts laying around. and its not like iam cranking the boost w/ a MBC. just curious how T7 would react. and looking at allthe values w/ Tech 2 they look fine. and ur rite not alot of people have tryied it on a viggen so i thought that i would see for myself and i like it for now

Nice, get pics of this asap. That's definitely a good price if it works out fine, esp. compared to snow performance.

Mostly because stock is so shitty.

If you ditched the water, and replaced the Viggen IC with one that cools better, your results would likely be similar...

And you'll never run out of air.

If you've pushed the IC to the maximum size for the space allowed, or if you're in a ridiculously hot place (say, Arizona) or if you're at altitude, then water injection is the shiznit...

Exactly..I expect it'll work well with the 4500' I'm at now, in addition to the fat intercooler I have at home.
I still wanna see pics though!

Then he's the perfect test mule...

Do some repeated WOT runs and data logging, then install the kit, and then do similar tests on a day with similar temperatures....
