Notes Summary – Because of my need to preserve the vehicle original setup without make changes that would effect the overall vehicle value, the process of installation was somewhat lengthy. Also because I order parts independently both off the Internet and through local supply stores, it had an effect on the length of the installation process. My biggest concern was the stable mounting of the Punch 5 and the construction of the mounting brackets. Because of maintenance and troubleshooting concerns, I ended up mounting the Punch 5 with the elbows on the top and bottom of the unit. This gave me easy access to the hoses and electrical connections. Mounting of the Bubbler/Reservoir was the second major issue. Due to it’s size, which I like by the way, and due to the space under the hood of my Toyota 4-Runner, it was necessary to strap it to the vehicle battery securely using nylon cable ties. This worked out well. Once these two thing were mounted, hose connections were made with no problems. The RL44 relay I chose to mount on the driver side firewall. I chose to mount the 60 AMP Fuse holder on the fender well near the vehicle battery. The electrical connection from the Punch 5 through the fuse holder to terminal 30 of the RL44 Relay were a breeze. All other electrical connections were easily made until I got the vehicle switched power connection to the safety on/off switch which I mounted on the dash. Finding a good way to make this electrical connection was a little bit of a chore. Because this electrical connections was set to draw less than 10 AMP, I decided to steal power from the vehicle power outlet which operated on a separate relay controlled by the vehicle switch. This worked beautifully. I made all power and ground connection using number 10 gauge single stranded wire and all minor connections using number 18 gauge single stranded wire between relay, safety switch and 10 AMP fuse holder. Once all connections were made, I installed each fuse one and a time and tested continuity for power and ground presents. All tests passed successfully. The only thing left was to mix up my catalyst water solution, fill her up and fire it off.
Catalyst During my wait for the ordered equipment to arrive, I had a chance to research HHO water solutions and I came across one that caught my eye. It was called “EZ Electrolyte HHO/Hydrogen”. After reading and researching everything, I decided to order a batch and try it out. The write up stated that the solution was not detectable by the vehicle oxygen sensors thus making an EFIE, CHIP’s and PWM’s no longer needed. Turns out it was too good to be true. A complete scam, please avoid this faulty purchase! It is much simpler to use sodium or potassium hydroxide, which is suggested by Punch HHO.
