Aquatune promises gains in HP and MPG......

Hey everyone.....

I've been reading up on this little gadget...contemplating getting one for my Tundra. I like the concept, and the way it looks...and seems really easy to install. I'm not trying to sell it...just trying to get your input...

Have any of you ever seen this or read anything about it??

I looked at the website, it looks intresting. I seen a couple of tundra photos in there. I think a 05 and an 07 5.7, if you plan to do this give us a review on it. I might be interested if it works for you.

Yeah, and then there's the negative review by Popular Mechanics as well. Yet, there is the successful review by KVBC Channel 3 in Las Vegas..........not to mention the myriad of happy people who posted their testimonials on the website....so take your pick I guess.....

Anyways........I think I may go for it. I've got an amp I want to sell, and I think I can get $750 for it. 30 day money back guarantee.....less a restocking fee. But it appears they offer great customer support, so the chances of this being a success is in the plus side for me...

Not to mention, that Fran review you posted....he has a link at the bottom of that review promoting another such hydrogen system.......
Hmmmm......

Yep, was reading the same articles...as with everything else you get the good and bad reviews. Just getting to the Popular Mechanics review (thanks for ruining the ending! ).

Seems like the positives are from people with SC or turbos and possibly the negatives are from bad installs.

Let us know how it goes with the install and real world results....good luck.

Thanks! I sure hope it works.....and at the same time, I hope I'm not too gullible. But, I am one to get pretty excited about new technology and ever since I got this truck, I've been on a mission to increase the mpg's.

i think someone must have overhead someone say Aquamist and got confused.

I run methanol injection on my mazdaspeed3 (haz turbo) and there are many reasons why that works, however, you still need to tune your car for it. slapping something on without tuning the ecu usually will yield no benefits unless the ecu is so smart it can self learn and even then, it is usually kept to certain parameters which may not be extreme enough to take advantage of the mods ya just slapped on.


I hope it is working well for you, but Id tell anyone I know to avoid this sort of thing.

20.25 mpg from 19 on the hiway.......

I'm still making adjustments to its adjustable knob.....and the computer is still learning.....

Not as significant as I'm wanting....but I'm not giving up yet....
