SMC Alcohol Injection Install on my Typhoon
Just got my SMC Alcohol kit yesterday and installed it today.
First impression - VERY well put together kit, only flaw is that the kit on a whole is geared towards Buicks. Not a big issue though, as my notes should help anyone with a SyTy install. I got in on the Buick GP, so my kit had a Buick line in it - 17". I had to go purchase a 4' AN line for my kit, cost me another ~$20.
Drilled a 3/8" hole in bottom of the intercooler. Centered it, and put it as far from the edge as possible, while still allowing room for a drill bit & the rest of the assembly to tighten up during assembly.
Jet and fitting tightend up. I tapped the hole with a 1/8" tap, then used a sealant on the fitting. SMC's instructions read to use JB weld, but their instructions are geared towards Buicks, using an aluminum pipe, where such a setup would be necessary. Our intake is thick cast aluminum, and can tap easily (can also strip easily, so take it easy - they call me Captain Crossthread)
Controller assembly... vacuum line is to boost, for turn on point adjustment. The wires there are the only 2 wires that hook up to the truck - the red wire powers the controller, pump and level sender. The terminals shown hook up to the wires from the tank, underhood - 4 wires - 2 for pump - 2 for sender.
Bottle, with everything installed, as it is shipped from SMC.
Final Intercooler/sprayer assembly
Trick way to mount it on a SyTy - use the airbox mount. Obviously only works if you have some sort of cold air setup on the truck, which is almost necessary if installing this kit.
