I used a SNOW system on a 90 ZR-1 it opened at about 75% throttle. Night/day difference, it didnt pull timing and ping. Without it did. Keeps the carbon down

Id like to put a system on my 'El....used water and windshield washer fluid, simple 50/50

I did some somewhat extensive testing daily driving 100% water over the end of this summer, look up my topic "question about 100% water injection" water by itself adds at least 10 to the octane number supposedly, I used it on diesel application but I think you'll love it. Id be VERY interested in mpg gains if you could let me know?

If you don't want to look that up, at least save yourself some headache and go with pro meth nozzles. I was nothing but disappointed with the snow nozzles. Since I quit posting to that topic I started running the windshield washer fluid just to winterize the system, but still no rust issues with the nozzles like I had with the snow. If you want more details I only had about $200? In the injection setup.

The worst part about my testing was that if I hadn't had the 2 dual needle guages in the cab to watch supply pressure as well as the stage pressures (indicating the solenoids opened or closed) I probably would have never caught the rust issue. I wonder how many people have bought the expensive snow system and have plugged nozzles and don't know it...

If you run just water (tap water) the injectors will clog from the minerals in tap water requiring nozzle cleaning.
Use distilled water not tap water. or WW fluid or the Boost Fluid. You can bring the mix up to 50-50 by adding methanol to the blend.
