One of the best inventions for your BMW has
already been around 60 years!
Superchargers and turbochargers generate more than just boost,
they generate a ton of incremental heat during operation, resulting
in ‘heat-soak’ from elevated intake air temps. Their power
increase creates its own power decrease...
But an application specific Active Autowerke methanol-water
injection system will help chill the intake charge to a cooler
temperature – effectively combating the heat soak effect and acting
as a 'chemical intercooler'.
Additionally, the methanol-water mix increases your engine’s knock
limit, serving as insurance against unwanted high boost detonation.
Methanol is a fuel and therefore will not lean out a fuel mixture
and is considered very safe.
Water/Methanol systems have been used since WWII to increase power
on booted engines, and with today’s electronic controllers it has
become a safe and easy to use upgrade for BMWs.
Your chosen mixture of methanol & water, or just one or the
other, is precisely delivered and metered by its own electronic
module. This module not only monitors the boost pressure within the
engine but also controls the delivery flow to match both the engine
load and demand as needed. Active has insured this kit works with
each BMW application they offer to insure a much faster, cleaner
install than universal kits.
Your kit comes with a large 1.8+ gallon reservoir well suited for
BMW apps. Each fill up can last weeks to months depending on how
much time is spent at full throttle, the capacity is there to meet
most demands and the trunk mounted location is ideal by being the
furthest position away from both engine and exhaust heat.
This kit installs in a trunk position that maximizes the available
trunk space. It has a rigid mount that's very secure, yet it can be
easily detached if needed by its spring loaded quick releases.
If there’s one mod you should be considering for better forced
induction performance, this is it.
