Winter activities in Sweden!

So I finally went through with my purchasing.

I got a water injection kit, a boost controller and a boost gauge.
Now the fun begins in putting everything together and wait and wait and wait and wait, until spring.

Here is a pick of the purchased components.

I will use the standard wiper fluid container for the water injection.






I also managed to set the valve clearence yesterday. "unfortunatly" ony two valves where 0.05 mm out of range, all though here is my first question. In the haynes it says that the intake clearence should be 0.1 mm, but under the hood of my car on a "Porsche" label it say's 0.15 (or the otherway around) What should it be?




And the car in the garage:

IMHO Haynes manuals have questionable accuracy at the best of times (OK so I'm being diplomatic here) and if it is a choice between info direct from Porsche (ie on a plate on your engine) and the Haynes manual, Porsche would win every time.

I haven't seen a 924 engine in a long time (I kinda miss my old 924.... good times).

I would go with the label under the hood for the valve clearances. You may need to go to a different color screw if you maxed out the adjustments on the stock ones.

WHat kind of boost are you planning on running? Is the water injection automatically adjusted by the boost you are running? or is it manual?

Hahaha, you guyz are funny.
First of all, NO we do not have ice bears in Sweden.
And NO, we do not live in iglos (Snow houses) ;-)
I live in the south of Sweden, and the winter is not so bad.
e get at the most -15 degrees celsius, but usually it stays around 0. (Freezing point). The problem is that in the south, when it gets around freezing, the state starts to spread out salt on our roads.
And as you know, salt is a car eater. So people with special cars a.s.o, usually keep them in the garage during winter.

OK, thats that.

I will try to run 0.9-1.0 bar with the water injection.
The water amount is not based on boost pressure.
Its manual.
Where I bought it, they said that~200Hp should be feed with 300ml/minute. (When setting/adjusting the nozzle)

I want to have a richer mixture.
I was thinking of
1. Make a link to the cold start valve, so that it starts when the waterinjection start. Is that a good or bad idea?
2. I also planned to "chims" the airflow meter. Does any one know if I have to add or take away chimes, to get a richer mixture?

FR Wilk!
Would like to hear more about why the car is gone!
What happend?
Couldent let the boost controler be where it was suppose to?
What kind of boost did you have during your WI?

OK, FR Wilk
, that doesent sound funny!

I'm trying to "bullet proof" my system as far as possible.
I made a sketch of the cableling. Maybe you could answer one question.
Trying to start the cold start valve, it seems its activated with the - fromthe termo switch. If doing what I have done in he sketch, do I need to "block" the - going form the relay to the cold start valve, so that the termo switch doesent "start" (Maybe with a doid?

I will also install a pressure gauge to reqognize when I have pressure in the hose from the pump to the nozzle. To safyten that I dont run out of water. When this lamp is lighten, I know I have pressure= water exist".
If not lighten, probably the water is out. My idea is then to switch of the pump with a cockpit switch and to with the same switch activate a magnetic valve which should block the "boost controller" so that the boost goes back to ~0.7 bar.
(The magnetic switch is not yet in the sketch!)
Good idea?
Should be!

You didnt tell me how much boost you ran!?
