Help me build an HHO today
Hi everyone, it's Sunday and I've got about 3-4 hours today that I want to devote to getting my car running with HHO!

Can someone give me some advice? Is their a kit plan available that will get me up and running in a few hours? I'm expecting to take a shopping list to my local hardware store, coming home and beginning assembly. In a few hours, I'd like to fire up the system on my 1999 Infiniti I-30 and check results on the scangauge. Is this possible?

These are the only plans I'm aware of that are free, but they are pretty good: http://smacksboosters.110mb.com/Smack.pdf
I'd be very surprised if you were able to be up and running in one day tho. Should have allowed an entire weekend.

Thanks Colchiro, I've downloaded the smacks kit. Definitely looks like it would take more than a few hours (especially the SS plate preparation).

So far, the most approachable design I've seen is the S10 example. Looks like it might actually be doable in less than a day.

Even if you were able to throw something together in one day you should still take a few days to condition the cell before running it at full power and installing it.

RE: Help me build an HHO today
OK, looks like the premise of building an HHO in a day might be feasible, but actually getting it in production on the vehicle might reasonably require a bit of seasoning.

I was at Wal Mart today and noticed a "buddy keg". The wheels started turning and it looks like it could be well suited as a near ready-made cell container. It even has two holes already machined in the top. Anyone else think this could be a good starting point? I wonder if it could take the heat?

I'm thinking that the plate assembly looks to be perhaps the most time intensive part of the process. I believe I'm going to take S10's PDF and try to use a "buddy keg" as the cell container and work from there.

I would like to go to the hardware store and at least begin to start building my HHO. Wish there was an "HHO for Dummies" project that would help with a proof of concept to get started...

I too was at walmart today looking for a suitable container, couldn't find one. Can you explain what this buddy keg is, and what isle you found it in, or even better, upload a digital of it? That would be great. I have looked everywhere for the perfect container, preferably a clear one, and have not found one to my liking. I know that clear pvc exists, but I can't find any locally. A thick clear acrylic can would be perfect.

Try a clear water-filter container.

Better make sure you have the room tho. These things are over a foot tall.

Any hardware store should have it.
