Do You Still Use Window Cleaner>? How Do You Keep It From Frezzin If Its Winter And You Only Use Water???? Please Help
Those of us who live in cold weather climate areas don't use water in our washer fluid tank, we actually use washer fluid. Washer fluid doesn't freeze. It's a mix of water and alcohol, which is great, because alcohol has better cooling properties then water. Put a drop of water and a drop of rubbing alcohol or isopropol(sp?) on your arm, and see which one evaporates faster? The alcohol will evaporate much faster. Also, when alcohol evaporates, it takes more eneregy to do so, and it takes the heat out as energy. It's pretty basic physics. This is why many people run alcohol inj in forced induction cars, lots of cooling power, more then water. Plus you get added octane because the alcohol has octane in it.

Hope that helps.

I'm sure living in Hawaii, you can just use water and it'll work fine. Hawaii is sweet. My bro lived out there for 2 years.

I looked at my instructions for the install and it says to use distilled water. I would assume you would glog the very small openings of the sprayers with anything else

LTLVIPR and ayat got me thinking. Has anybody made a permanent resovoir for their s2 sprayer? There is a lot of room where the airbox used to be. That is a great idea, could still use the washer pump as usual. Real good idea.

I thought about running a second resevoir for the IC sprayer, but then again, if you ever want to reinstall the stock airbox, you would be screwed. I went ahead and just used the windshield washer jug.
Why would you be screwed? If you wanted to install the stock air box, install the s2 sprayer as the directions say. A little more work, but not screwed.
Your washer tank is still in stock form, it's like you never even installed it.

Well, I made it and it came out good. Only problem is the 4 to 1 connector, It's leaking like crazy. I think I was supposed to tighten up the orange ends on that thing. They were loose, but I messed with them and I thought they were supposed to be. I was wrong, water leaks out like crazy. Not from the glue connections, but from the orange to grey part.
I ordered a new one from that 3sx place. I'll pay more attention to it this time.
I used a coolant overflow tank from summit racing. I removed the fill and drain. Drilled the holes out to 1/2". Forced threads into the new holes with a 1/2" mpt plug.
On the bottom I used a 1/2"x5/8" barb elbow. Used the s2 p clip and attatched to the bolt hole on the overflow tank(at the bottom, but parallel to the tank). I then connected the two with a small piece of 5/8" clear tubing.
Threaded in a pvc fill on top and attatched with a custom clamp to the frame rail.
It sits on an angle, where the air box used to be(using injen now).
