V3 Water-Methanol Injection Kit
for Supercharged Systems
Manufactured by AEM Electronics | Part #30-3300
AEM V3 Water/Methanol Injection Kit, Standard Controller Internal MAP with 35psi max, 200psi Weatherproof WM Pump, V3 Injector, 1.15 Gallon Reservoir, Conductive Fluid Level Sensor
Water/methanol injection for forced induction (turbocharged or supercharged) gas-powered race engines is a proven means for effectively reducing engine inlet air temperatures and suppressing harmful detonation. This allows racers to reliably increase boost and advance ignition timing, without using high-octane racing fuel, for power gains of up to 20%.
AEM’s Water Injection Kits utilize robust hardware and deliver more advanced features than any other comparably priced water/methanol injection system.
- Boost Dependent and Multi-Input (0-5v/frequency) progressive controller designs feature large adjustment knobs, integrated plug for harness connection, integrated fuse, covered status light and test button for enhanced splash resistance and mounting tabs
- Wiring harness is terminated with a positive-lock connector on one end with color-coded wires to ease installation, integrated pump ground circuit and additional wire for optional on/off fluid solenoid
- “Boost Safe” failsafe output included (for complete failsafe under all conditions, see our Water/Methanol Failsafe Device)
- Heavy-duty high-pressure injection pump features integral fittings, a Santoprene diaphragm and EPDM seals to resist corrosion. AEM's pump maximizes line pressure for optimum atomization and its quiet, smooth operation is almost undetectable
- Precision-machined billet-aluminum injector with integral check valve
- Three interchangeable injector nozzles to cover a wide variety of HP levels (250cc/min, 500 cc/min & 1,000cc/min)
- 1.15-gallon tank with anti-starvation reservoir, integral conductive low-fluid sensor and positive lock connector (tank-less systems available)
- 20 feet of injection tubing included
- LED dash light for system status and low fluid warning
Robust, Easy to Use Controller Designs - The new controller designs feature large, turn-resistant knobs and larger numbering to easily set accurate start and full activation points, with covered status LED and test buttons for added splash resistance. A plug is integrated into the controller housing for mating to the redesigned wiring harness’s positive-lock connector. The Boost Dependent controller housing has a molded-in, barbed nipple to accept a boost hose and a wiring legend on the back. The controller housing also features an easy to access integrated fuse and molded mounting tabs.
Innovative Injector Design Delivers Faster Cooling with Less Fluid Used - AEM's breakthrough injector design uses unique Swirl Generator Technology that improves atomization to deliver faster inlet temp cooling and uses less fluid to maintain inlet air cooling. Included are three Swirl Generators that deliver 250cc, 500cc, and 1000cc of flow. The AEM V3 WMI injector is included in every AEM Water/Methanol injection kit.
Heavy-Duty Waterproof High-Pressure Injection Pump - Safe for Engine Bay/Frame Rail Mounting. AEM’s internally-bypassed water/methanol injection pump is waterproof and safe for mounting in locations that are exposed to the elements. It does not cycle on and off and provides quiet, smooth operation. It features robust construction including integral hose fittings, EPDM seals, and a Santoprene diaphragm that provides consistent and reliable fluid delivery.
Low-Profile 1.15 Gallon Tank - AEM’s gas Water/Methanol Injection Systems are available with or without a compact 1.15 gallon tank that features an anti-starvation reservoir. A more accurate, conductive low level fluid sensor is integrated into the tank and features a positive lock connector with color-matched wires to the wiring harness. The sensor eliminates any chance of incorrect readings due to interference from debris.
Simplified Wiring - AEM’s Water/Methanol Injection kit’s wiring harness is terminated with a positive-lock connector on one end and has color-coded wires to ease installation. Both the power and ground wires for the pump are included in the harness which simplifies the wiring process and eliminates any chance of the pump accidentally activating from a short in the system. An additional wire is included for adding an optional on/off solenoid to stop fluid flow when the system is inactive.
Integrated Boost Safe Feature - The controllers in AEM’s Water Methanol systems include an integrated “Boost Safe” output feature that monitors the entire injection system and triggers a ground signal via an output if it detects a voltage-related error (short, bad connection, broken wire, overheated pump, high or low voltage signal, etc.), allowing users to define their failsafe strategy from something as simple as flashing a warning light to more advanced strategies like pulling boost or ignition or switching fuel maps on a standalone engine management system. Combined with the integral and highly accurate conductive low-fluid switch in the tank, “Boost Safe” can also put your engine in safe mode before the system runs dry. This exclusive feature is found only on AEM Water/Methanol Injection Systems.
Revised Flow Control Strategy for More Linear Fluid Delivery - AEM’s engineers spent extensive time revamping the controller’s flow control strategy for a more linear flow output delivery. This means that the flow delivery better matches an engine’s need for water/methanol injection, which further optimizes charge air cooling and detonation control.
This water/methanol controller design, for gas vehicles, is boost dependent for forced induction vehicles up to 35 PSI of boost. The Boost Dependent controller has an on-board manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor with a molded-in nipple for a boost hose pickup.
Note: For optimum results, all water/methanol injection systems and flow gauges should be run with a WMI inline filter (PN AEM-30-3003). For additional insurance against the unintended flow, particularly when the pump and tank must be installed higher than the injection's nozzle, the optional High-Flow Low-Current WMI Solenoid (PN AEM-30-3326) is recommended.

Important Safety Notice Regarding Methanol - AEM Water/Methanol Injection Systems are chemically compatible with a mixture of water and methanol, which we strongly recommend does not exceed a concentration of more than 50% methanol. In addition to the inherent dangers of using 100% methanol, doing so will damage the system's flow sensor and void the warranty on this component.
Methanol is a toxic and highly flammable chemical. 100% Methanol ignites easily and burns vigorously with an almost undetectable flame. Methanol can be absorbed through the skin and even small amounts can cause blindness or even death. Using this fluid at high pressures, without dilution, in an under-hood environment with nylon lines and push-to-connect fittings is very unsafe. The performance advantages of using greater than 50% methanol concentrations are small, if they exist at all. However, the safety issues are very real and far outweigh any perceived benefit of running high concentrations of methanol.
