Top Notch.  You and hydro's cells belong in a museum.

Thanks for the complements guys

This is what I'm dealing with right now...
Based on my calculations:
...Results do not look good for my hopes of powering my 5Liter Mustang on just HHO on demand like Stan.

5.0Liter engine x 3000rpm = 15000 literpermin@3000rpm
30:1 air fuel ratio
500lpm of HHO @ 3000rpm

I need to be able to produce 500 Liters per min of HHO in order for my V-8 to run at WOT. (Wide Open Throttle)
The most I have seen is 1 Liter every 13 seconds. I need 100 times that production of HHO.

Then I decided to switch my A/F ratio to 42:1 and that would require 357LPM of HHO gas at WOT.

Good news is I read you can mix propane with hydrogen.
I'll use my propane carb with plans to mix the fuels because I do not think I will be able to produce enough HHO on demand to power such a large engine. I hope to develop the cell and gradually use less and less propane as my HHO gas output increases.

...Any thoughts?

The circuit im using is based off the hydrostar manual.
In the process of soldering the parts in place...

I have this scope...

And this interesting unit....

I want to input as much voltage as I can like how Hydrocars does it.
BTW Hydrocars, how many Liters per Min does your generator produce of HHO gas?

With the help of Oddball I questioned my calculation further...
I found a big mistake in my formula. The fact that its a 4 stroke engine would mean that its 1 in every 4 strokes will the cylinders need an air/fuel mixture...

5.0Liter engine x 3000rpm = 15000 literpermin@3000rpm
42:1 air fuel ratio
357Lpm of HHO @ 3000rpm

357/4(strokes)= 89.25Lph of HHO.

This is great because the numbers keep going down. I have reason to belive that this number is still not correct because as Oddball pointed out to me on e-mail if you do the same calculation for gasolines 12:1 air/fuel ratio it gives 312Lpm of gasoline. WTF??
So i'm still researching this topic. Will post back soon.

Thats not my intake. I think thats a Mopar.  I have a Ford 302CID.
I do have the carb though.
