If there is one thing that happens a lot in the performance industry, it’s companies making moves and buying other companies. The most recent example of this happened just a couple of weeks ago, as we learned that Nitrous Express acquired Snow Performance, one of the leading water-meth injection companies in the industry. We caught up with Ryan Lewis, marketing director of Nitrous Express, on the purchase of Snow Performance and the plans for the future.
According to Mr. Lewis, “We had already sold Snow Performance products in the past, so we had some of its line in-house. This acquisition was an easy way for us to continue to sell Snow’s existing line and grow it as well.” Snow offers several products including five controllers for water-meth injection. The controllers start from a simple, mechanical-type activation, and go all the way up to an electronic option that allows you to custom tune the system. The top-of-the-line offering includes RPM and boost options that will enable you to 3D map the system.
So what does water-meth injection do? According to Ryan, “By running water-meth injection, you can use pump gas in applications where race fuel might be previously needed. It will also drop air intake temperatures on boosted applications as well.” These benefits are obtained by merely injecting a very calculated, well-atomized mixture of water and methanol into the intake plenum. It will work with both gasoline engines as well as diesel. Ryan said that when you use a system on diesel applications, the vehicle will get better mileage, make more power, and go into re-generation less often than without the injection.
The NX/Snow crew is planning on offering more vehicle applications to the existing lineup of the current single nozzle, plate, and direct port systems that they currently sell. For more information check out Snow Performance.net.
