Guys,

I only see one downside with WMI and that's if your counting on it to be the
answer to all your performance and detonation issues. DONT !!!!

My choice to install WMI was based completely on one thing ADDED
INSURANCE AGAINST DETONATION PEROID !!!!

After reading countless articles and forums, looking through all the vendor sites,
researching history, reading testimonials pro and con I have come to the
following conclusion.

1. WMI will lower head temps and will increase the octane level of the mixture
resulting in less of a tendency for detonation.

2. WMI is particularly advantageous when used in forced induction applications
where a propensity for detonation is prevalent.

3. WMI will, when used in forced induction applications, allow the use of higher
boost levels and added timing resulting in HP gains when tuned properly.

4. WMI systems should be sourced from reputable vendors with a proven
history of a quality product.

5. WMI systems, like any other product, can fail and when running boost and
timing levels that exceed the auto manufactures stock settings this can be
catastrophic.

6. Any WHM system used should include added failsafes that will dump boost or
retard timing with the loss of pressure, low fluid level, inadiquate flow rate,
clogging, or system power failure.

Excellent WMI systems are out there and they work well. There are numerous benifits to running WMI on a forced induction engine but also be aware of possible issues and safeguard against them. Its great insurance when installed and used properly.

As I said previously " Worst case if it doesn't work for you just change it to a Fairman Douche Bar for cooling your IC".
