I know Jeff was telling me I may bog the engine if it feeds too much water. Should I run a smaller jet instead of going with a restrictor?

smaller jet is always better than a restrictor. Increase the concentration of methanol will minimise the bog.

Ah great. Thanks for the help Richard. I'll go to a 0.6mm jet instead and have just started to increase my meth concentration.

I finally had the time to install my HFS-4 that i purchased 9months ago. Sure does take some effort to do a clean install. I still have to come up with a tank solution and also tap for the nozzle.

After closing everything back up and starting the engine the car through a check engine light. i don't have a scanner so i can;t read the actual code. After reviewing the jumpers i was able to solve this problem but noticed i don't have enough jumpers to test the system? Pictures show 8 on peoples boxes but mine only has 7 so i can't run the system test.

Also i wish i had a right angle nozzle like a see other mini's use. Makes for a much better fit along the pipe. Might need to look into getting one of these instead of the 3 i currently have. My plan is to install a 0.8 nozzle with the 0.5 restrictor.

Do i need a check valve? Or is the FAV good enough for a one nozzle system in the injection stream.

There should be enough jumper links. For the CEL, all you need to do is to move from DR0 to DR1. There is a spare jumper link on the "PRK" position. Jumpers are available from any electronics shop, used commonly on computers.

You can get an right angle jet adaptor from Jeff at www.howertonengineering.com.

You do not need a checkvalve.

Spent $200 with Jeff a couple days for some extra parts. Extra jets, some black line to blend into the engine bay more and 2 right angle adapters.

Need to also start working on my tank also which will be an RCI fuel cell from summit racing.

Is there right angle adapters i could purchase for the pump inlet? My pump location sort of requires it to avoid kinking and contact against the body of the car.
