I've got a direct port water nozzle kit fitted to my manifold's. So 1 nozzle per cylinder. thing is I cant use it due to vacuum sucking the water out on over run. The devils own non return valves are £43 each so £166 for 4. They are set to hold back vac of 16psi. There must be must be a cheaper option out there. anyone no were to get them from.

Get a N/C 12 volt by 1/4 NPT solenoid and wire it to open when the pump kicks on....

Being that you are in the UK you might need to find on there since your pipe threads are different.

I run two Hobbs switches and two solenoids to keep my water from getting sucked in.
Your other choice is to move the nozzles above the carbs so they don't see vacuum.
