Let me tell you right now that the stuff Cooling Mist, Snow and Devil's Own sells is horridly overpriced entry level stuff.

To do it for real, start looking at pressure washers.

I have a good idea about how to do it. First i need a pump good for atleast 150psi but to get one from snow or cooling mist is almost $250 but i found a pump on ebay made by sureflow for half that price. then i need a selonoid to keep water from leaking by into the intake. the the tank and line with nozzels should be easy. I found a diagram on line that shows u how to set it up but i didnt know how to put the picture they had on this site. but i think the way i have it here should come to around $200-$250 which is alot better then $600-$600 from snow or any other company!!!

My Harbor Freight catalog here is showing a 1600 PSI pressure washer for $100.

I thought the same thing about spending over $500 for one of thses things so I'm building one that'll be done when my fittings come in. I bought a home depot 5 gallon bucket with a special lid, also bought at home depot, that will work perfectly. That cost about $15-20. Then I went online an got (3) AN-Barb fittings from jegs.com ($20) Then I google shopped aem nozzle and bought their "nozzle kit" ($50) now all i got to do is hook up 1/4" vacuum line from the boost side of my turbo to the bucket, then to my intake.

I have always been interested in water/meth inj. Jbrich01 sounds like has a good start on the plan. How ya plan on being able to adj. what lb of boost that its injected? seems like just a vac line to the bucket and another one coming out would be considered a rig imo..
