AEM water injection system pump mounted to roll bar


The NW3S 3000GT race car has a complete AEM water / methanol injection system. At the moment we do not enable it because the fuel we are using (Q16) does not need the water injection capabilities enabled.

On the left you can see the AEM injection fluid pump (lower middle of photo).

Below you see the display panel in the position of where the glove box usually is. The control panel is a custom CNC cut aluminum plate and has the adjustment micro-potentiometers installed right into it (click image for larger view). Also are the warning lights and the AEM flowmeter for the injection system.

Brake Hydraulic Lock System

We have a line lock system installed in the 3000GT race car. When enabled you press the brake pedal down and then hold the momentary switch on the steering wheel. You can leet off the brake and the pressure in the hydraulic lines remain holding the brake caliper(s) in the braked position until you let go.

Many RWD cars use this on the front brakes to do a good burnout in the burnout box. Since we are AWD we do not do burnouts.

But this also holds the car in position at the line and you can slip the clutch to take up all slack in the drivetrain without moving the car forward at all and/or breaking the beam on the line.
