The Banks control interface for both injection systems is simple yet sophisticated. Completely housed in a compact, easily-mounted 2-1/16" gauge head unit, it allows the user to fully command 2 stages of injection for maximum tunability. It also doubles as a multi-function gauge, displaying boost or TPS %, EGT* and pump duty cycle on the digital display, as well as indicating system activity and any errors with the on-board LED (*optional, available when equipped). Universal models contain a high-precision on-board 100 PSIA pressure sensor for boost sensing, while plug-and-play models connect to your factory MAP sensor. The system can be configured to inject based on boost pressure or a throttle position signal, exhaust gas temperature, or a combination of both. Fully adjustable progressive multiple-stage control allows for fine-tuning when towing or racing; whether you're after mileage improvements, EGT reductions or big power gains. This versatility allows for use on gas, diesel, boosted or normally aspirated applications; It can even be used for external cooling on intercoolers or brake systems! The injection nozzles are nickel-plated brass, specifically designed for this application to achieve optimal atomization of water or water-methanol over a wide pressure range. A large 5/8" wrenching hex makes installation a breeze, and a stainless steel screen is integral to keep debris out of the orifice. A range of sizes is provided with each system, with 10 flow rates available to custom-tailor system performance. Two different pump output volume ratings are available to properly match your engine's needs and offer proper adjustability. Both pumps feature a built-in output pressure switch for low fluid or leak detection, an adjustable re-circulating pressure regulator, integral push-lock fittings and a rubber-isolated mounting bracket for a clean, quiet installation. The best plumbing available is provided with the highest cross-sectional flow area of any system on the market. Nylon tubing and EPDM seals are methanol compatible and can withstand 300 PSI at underhood temperatures. Installed fittings have 360 degree swivel capability for full flexibility. Dual-stage systems include both a low-restriction check valve for the primary stage, as well as a huge, all-stainless 3/16" orifice control solenoid for the second stage - properly sized components minimize pressure drop prior to the nozzle, maximizing output and atomization. The controller will support a second solenoid in place of the check valve for maximum system performance. (Note: Solenoids are optional on Straight-Shot systems) No cutting, splicing, and crimping here! The wiring harness is fully connectorized with automotive grade sealed connectors. Designed to plug and play with most factory boosted applications with enough length for virtually any installation configuration. Plug-in extensions and adapters are also available to aid in custom applications. The system is smart enough to detect when wiring, connection or component faults have occurred and will alert you to the problem. The System Safety output allows further action to be taken when the controller detects a fault or low fluid condition. A plug and play EGT sensor is included in the Double-Shot system (and may be added to the Straight-Shot system as an option) to serve as a trigger or auxiliary sensor. When in use, the display can also show EGT. Great option for diesel owners! Select from 3/4, 2-1/2, 5 or 7 gallon tanks that can be mounted anywhere on your vehicle depending on your specific needs. Or simply plumb the system to run from your existing washer fluid reservoir with the included fitting. (Tanks sold separately)

  • After the response of the last question saying it uses two nozzles and the spray at the same time, do they both spray the same amount? Putting on a non-intercooled 96 7.3 so the intake is fairly short distance between turbo and engine so could i put one nozzle in each intake pipe after the split and evenly distribute to both sides of the engine

    Roy Hinckley | 6/13/2019

    Yes the amount sprayed is the same and you are correct, distributing the jets to both intake plenums will help with cooling. 

  • With this system will there be one or two injector nozzles in to the intake system. It says it has a two stage system but i am limited on space and am unsure how it works if it only uses one nozzle for both stages

    Roy Hinckley | 6/13/2019

    This actually is a two nozzle system but they spray at the same time.  You do not have to use both nozzles.
