Is it okay to buy a high mileage honda??

I'm sure the thing is electric. My guess is it uses DC current so should be easy to power in a car. Using the throttle sensor is a great idea. If we could varry the vapor output to match the throttle it would be perfect.

These guys were selling bags of water for $30 that you were supposed to place in air filter box. You could make your own cheaper.

Maybe if you set water with gelatin it would stay in place.

I'm thinking about doing

I'm thinking about doing water injection by drilling a hole on the throttle body and letting the vacuum do the work.

Are you thinking of putting it before the throttle plate or after? If it is after, you'll get the most vaccum when you need it the least and the least when you need it most.

I know this, I was thinking right before the butterfly. I might just set it up with a windshield washer pump and a fuel injector, then set it up with some sort of variable load valve that works off of a pressure sensor coming off the MAP line. I dunno though.

I think I like the sound of that idea. I've heard of the washer pump thing before.
