1. I don't know how much air it uses, but 1.5 LPM will definitely have the potential to give you a nice boost. I say potential because there aren't too many things in life that are guaranteed. The Smack booster produces that output at 20 amps, which is a fair draw. Ideally a booster should produce at least 1 LPM for every 10 amps of current, but that's asking a whole lot from an inefficient cell.
2. You'll probably have to add a cup or two every fill-up of gas, or something like that. It isn't much.
3. You'll have to verify what kind of sensor you have. If it's a narrowband O2 sensor than you can and should use the EFIE.
4. Series cells (true series cells) are the way to go, but they are more difficult to build and take up more space. However, they are very efficient as each cell gets its own bath of electrolyte, therefore limiting each cell to about 2 volts, which is about optimum. You'll have 7 cells, of course. The Smack booster incorporates a series and parallel design, so it's not a true series cell, plus all the cells share the same bath. So, there is a lot of heat generated, but not as much as other cells like it because Smack did do his home work and designed it with the most efficiency that this type of booster can offer. It must be wired in parallel (not series) because it needs all 12-14 volts to jump those gaps so that all eight cells will produce gas.
5. It's not good to run out of water for the cell's sake, but the engine shouldn't care one way or another. Depending on how much voltage offset you're dialing in with the EFIE will determine whether or not you'll have any runability problems.
6. I don't know about the E test as I've never had one. However, it should run WAY cleaner with hydroxy.
Hope this helps.
1) How much air does my car currently use? is adding 1.5L/min a significant enough portion of the airflow to truly make a difference? Do I need to modify the design to double or triple the output?
2) How quickly does it go through water? Do I need a 20gal water tank in the trunk to feed this thing? Will a couple of extra gallons kicking around be enough?
3) I am presuming that my vehicle has a standard O2 sensor. Autozone lists it as a universal 4 wire planar, part # 15733. I will need to attach an EFIE to the system.
4) Should I be looking at a series stack system instead? I could just build 4 Smack Cells and hook them up in series to lower the voltage. Would this make more sense?
5) What happens when I run out of water? Does the engine get confused because the EFIE is telling it something different? Should I include low water shut off sensor?
6) Will it pass the E-test in Ontario. or do I need to remove the system every two years when it gets tested. It is a very stringent test. Car goes on dyno and is tested at idle and 40km/h.
Thanks in advance for the help.
