AEM has completely redesigned its Controller Modules for its Water/Methanol Injection systems for easier installation and programming, and has added kit enhancements to improve system performance and simplify installation. AEM now proudly offers water/methanol injection kits for both forced induction and naturally aspirated race engines for gas and Diesel!
Water/Methanol for All Boost Levels or Naturally Aspirated
AEM Electronics offers two different water/methanol controller designs (refer to the part numbers below for gas and Diesel controller types). One type is boost dependent and has an on-board MAP sensor with a molded-in nipple for a boost hose pickup. The second controller type is designed to work with a frequency based input for Injector Duty Cycle (IDC) or frequency-based mass airflow (MAF), or a 0-5v signal from voltage-based MAF or external MAP sensor, expanding AEM’s Water/Methanol Injection Kits for use on both ultra-high boost vehicles using an external MAP sensor and naturally aspirated vehicles via the MAF/IDC settings.
Robust, Easy to Use Controller
The new controller designs feature large, high-resistance knobs and larger numbering to easily set accurate start and full pressures, with covered status LED and test buttons for added splash resistance. A plug is integrated into the controller housing for mating to the redesigned wiring harness’s positive-lock connector. The boost-dependent controller housing has a molded-in, barbed nipple to accept a boost hose and a wiring legend on the back. The external MAP/MAF/IDC controller housing has a splash-resistant rubber plug in the back that covers the programming dipswitches and a legend for setting the dipswitches for the various modes. Both controllers have an easy access integrated fuse and mounting tabs molded into the housing.
These new controllers retain the “Boost Safe” injection failsafe system, which is an output that will activate if there is a short, loss of continuity or high or low voltage condition, allowing users to define their failsafe strategy from something as simple as flashing a warning light to more advanced strategies like pulling boost or ignition, or switching fuel maps on a standalone engine management system.
The new wiring harness is terminated with a positive-lock connector on one end and has color-coded wires to ease installation. An integrated Pump Ground circuit is included in the harness which simplifies the wiring process and eliminates any chance of the pump accidentally activating from a short in the system. An additional wire is included for adding an optional solenoid for active system engagement.
Improved Injector Flow Rate & Nozzle Sizes
AEM’s engineers have reworked the system’s vacuum or boost vs. pump duty cycle function, resulting in better variable flow technology that improves the flow rate linearity across the entire water/methanol flow curve. Three resized injector nozzles are in each kit and allow for improved flow capability (a flow graph is available on our website).
New Low Level Fluid Indicator
A more accurate, conductive low level fluid sensor is integrated into every tank and features a positive lock connector with color-matched wires to the wiring harness. The sensor eliminates any chance of incorrect readings due to interference from debris.
