one question on smack design
I just have a question about smack design. On the top you have the +, - and the hole where the hho goes into the bubbler. Is there a hole for a bleeder to let air in. Does that create a vaccum, air in and then out to the bubbler. I was just wondering if that was needed or is the hho just pushed out by the production alown.

RE: one question on smack design
The hho is pushed out by production alone.

There should be no need for a bleeder hole unless you're connected to engine vacuum (instead of the air filter housing).

RE: one question on smack design
so, if the tubing is connected to the closest place to the butterfly, or at the end of the intake closest to the engine, is that considered under vacuum since its closer?

No. There's an infinite amount of air available to enter the engine so there's not much vacuum on the outside of the BF.

On the manifold side of the butterfly you can't make that claim unless the BF is open.

RE: one question on smack design
I suggest to create a intake line into the booster although it isn't part of the original Smack design. In addition, connect the booster's hho line to your car in two locations: via vacuum line and via the air intake of the engine. from my experience this will increase the hho amount in the engine and increase performance.

Connecting to engine vacuum is asking for trouble with vacuum leaks and sucking all your electrolyte into your engine. IMO, it should only be practiced by advanced users who know what they're doing and only after injecting in the air housing hasn't worked.

If the cell itself has as air inlet there is no real danger that water will be sucked into the engine, don't you think?

RE: one question on smack design
It depends a lot how much vacuum is exposed to the cell (more vacuum = greater risk).

Having an inlet into your cell could make it worse since it moves more air thru the cell.

There have been a lot of reports here of the loss of electrolyte due to vacuum.
