  1. @cweeden its trigger by fuel injection duty cycle signal. Good thing on Aquamist kit is that it doesn't just turns on and off, spray is controlled by a fast acting valve that ramp up spray from trigger point to max. kit does not come with water tank, so just I just bought one from "SNOW", tank is only 2.84L but it doesn't use much water on a 1.5 hrs mountain road drive. it still had 3/4 of water when i got home. Reckon it'll gobble up much faster on track. I was afraid to put too much water so i first tried 80ml/m nozzle but ended up using 150ml/m, didn't try more flow cuz that's the biggest one i've ordered.
  2. Hello Guys, after getting some parts fixed I finally got the water injection kit installed last week. car is running on a Aquamist HSF3 kit with 0.4C 150ml/m nozzle. car is not tune with water injection, rather its just there to add a bit of safety against detonation during hot days in Taiwan. So I was expecting some lost of power when it kicks in but surprisingly I don't feel any power lost when its running (butt dyno lol). feel free to ask me aquamist settings if you guys decide to get one. cheers LINE_MOVIE_1595498702408.mp4
  3. Yes, I agree aim products are top quality, but it might be malfunction due to a damaged ECU. Lotus dealership told me I have to replace ECU(it's a long story), to be on the safe side, better to check on aim as well cuz it indeed is preventing connection to obdII
  4. Thanks @alias23 but lotus dealership told me car's ECU is broken and needs replacement. car will be there for quite sometime. they told me since i always keep obdII dongle in the socket, it might be broken and cause ECU to go bad. is that a possibility?
  5. Hello everyone, Car is in lotus dealership to check on engine problem, they could not connect to ecu unless they remove aim dash. Somehow it's interfering with obdII. Are there anyone experiencing same problem? My car has tvs1900, runs well when first installed but now having some engine problem, it seems two precat o2 sensors are not giving signals.
  6. Hello @Kristof Thys, inject pre blower and water only won't change air/fuel ratio. to get the most out of water/methanol injection you need to get the car tuned; i'm adding it not to increase power but just to prevent engine knock during summer track days. all info came from searching on google and asking around so if something doesn't sound right, please let me know. thanks! red circle shows where the nozzle will be installed.
  7. Hello Everyone, small update on my car, I ended up choosing a Harrop TVS1900 non-cooled kit, mainly because there is no independent shop that specialize Lotus here and non-cooled kit is very easy to install. Just drove the car back from the shop and quite like the new found noise coming from the air intake. haven't really push the car but can tell immediately there is a lot more torque. Taiwan is known to have very hot and humid summer so decided to install aquamist water/methanol injection; shop pre tap a hole on the compressor for the nozzle and since ecu will not make any compensation to the cooler air (no IAT sensor after compressor) I will first try the smallest nozzle available from Aquamist(80cc/min). will update again after aquamist is in place. Thanks the guys at SSC, their quick replies made the whole experience silky smooth.
  8. anyone tracking their 460+ hp exige with stock internals? any issues so far?
  9. @GazzyFizzle bought and installed at Taiwan lotus dealership. https://www.auto-blip.com/ @alias23 not really, cuz prefer to be louder if I change. Any pictures on lsd installation without engine out? Curious how many second off my laptime with lsd.
  10. thanks for all the replies. @TBDGood to know internals are good for EX460 kit. I agree Komotec offers a more complete kit with full exhaust but the track I go has 106db noise limit; OEM exhaust rev to 4K just pass the limit by a few db. what I do now is rev to 3.6k and hope the guy looking at my dash would give me a break Lol. (3.6k at 98db) LSD would be nice but requires engine out, If do that, i'll be thinking about forged internal, uprated clutch etc. and most likely be out of this year's budget but definitely on my list later on. Autoblip and bluetooth earphones are consider luxuries on car like this. I could heel toe just fine but about 2 out of 10 times would not be perfectly smooth; with autoblip it feels almost like PDK downshift, quite pleased with it, plus can be turn off with a button. one thing to note if anyone wants to get one, connection would be better if solder instead of quick splice to car's signal lines.
  11. Hello Everyone, I'm a first time lotus owner, picked up my car 8 months ago from Lotus dealership Taiwan. Car runs perfectly so far, no issue whatsoever, very exciting to drive. having done few mods and track days, i figure its time to look at power upgrades + brakes. I am debating between charged cooled or non cooled power upgrades. From what i have read, stock internals are reliable at 430hp so non-cooled kits from both komotec and harrop should be worried free. but what about charged cooled kit? at 460~470hp, is forged internal a must? I do around 5 to 7 track days a year. any opinions are appreciated. List of mods so far: harness bar, Schroth 4pt, oil pressure/oil temp. gauge, moroso baffled sump, lightweight battery, steering arm, Advan Racing wheels, Carbon roof, Carbon service panel, Autoblip, momo removable steering wheel, 3ways nitron, Komotec Wing, Aim Dash MX2E.
  12. for oil pressure located here, just need a T fitting
  13. looking really nice except for the cheap looking binnacle cover.
  14. Car got Geo done before track day but after removed all the shims on left front corner, the most camber they get is -0.45. I thought exige 350 suppose to come with -0.8 from factory?? Car only has 4500km, perhaps springs need to settle after more mileage?
  15. thanks @BatMobile will think more about weight transfer on my next event.
