Yup. Gonna order one of these! Like the OEM stealth.  Heard the other that the BMW M4 GTS has a water injection system. Since when are OEMs doing this?  :scratch:

AWESOME!  Thanks so much. Pre-Order pricing expires in ONE WEEK.  So order now.

As for other cars with water injection - it's not as new as you think... just becoming more mainstream.

The FIRST car with it would be the Oldsmobile Jetfire!  But they called meth "Turbo Rocket Fluid", because, well... it was the 1960s.  :)

Saab has also used it and even the 2003 EVO VIII originally had a form of it as an intercooler sprayer.  That said, now that the BMW M4 is offering it and Bosch has development dollars into it - you're going to be seeing it on a host of cars over the next few years.

Yep! First round of production samples have been received and looked good. We made a couple tweaks and are waiting for our second round of production samples.

Once we green light those - full on production version should be available is 60ish days.

Been a while - but figured we should follow up with this.


The first production tanks are being installed!  Install is about as close to OEM as it gets.






SakeBomb ALSO developed an awesome Bracket for installing the pump on the underside of the vehicle, which in turn uses the same routing as the stock fuel lines:






 We have ALSO shipped the initial run of tanks!







That was an adventure. We loaded an obscene amount of tanks in an extremely short amount of time. So many, that we had to request a one ton USPS trunk to handle it all - and the FILLED it!

So that means, if you ordered a tank its en route. There are some exceptions on tank/bracket combos as were awaiting some hardware - but those will go out early next week.


HUGE thanks to Alex, Brian, Christian, Heath and Travis over at SakeBomb Garage for their hardwork, hospitality and patience getting this project from concept to reality.

Ahhh, so THAT'S what that hole in the trim panel is for.  :afro:

I mounted my fuel pump inertial switch behind it.  8)
