Thank you also for responding, and it's good to work with another person who has a RAM! Again sorry for not responding sooner, ongoing family issues.

Thanks for all your input, and sorry for so many questions. Looking forward to your response.
- Thank you for the drawing, and i did take a pic of my intake elbow and attached it. Not real clear on the whole pressure issue, but I'll take your word for it, it works! What is it exactly that you use for the inlet valve?
- So it's not a good idea to inject the HHO before the turbo? Just out of curiosity, and being ignorant on this, why? Too much heat from the exhaust heating up the turbo perhaps which heats up the air/HHO?
- My first concern about drilling & tapping the elbow is, I'm trying to keep this "under the radar" so when I get checked for emissions, should they look under the hood, I won't get busted. Here in WA, we have to go get our plate tags yearly. I'd probably remove all HHO evidence beforehand. So drilling and tapping and having an inlet would tend to leave something more permanent. I suppose maybe pulling the inlet and using a bolt for a plug may disguise it a bit.
- Do you know of any resources that may list states that don't vs do have a problem with this technology being installed?
- Also mounting the inlet this close, will it still allow the proper mixing of air to HHO, as myoldyourgold stated "There must also be enough time/distance from the point of injection to the intake to mix the HHO properly so all cylinders get the same charge."
- My funds are running low as I'm on SSD, and this has ended up costing a small fortune so far. Ok, enough whining... I will have to look further into water injection and WMO as well. Thanks for sharing that though. More goals. But I would like to see if at all possible to get some things set up in advance, so adding the water injection and WMO will be easier.
- As for the heater grid, yes, as you'll see in the pic, it has one too.
- So I took a look at my 2-11 plate cells or reactors (see attached photos) each is configured as: -NNNN+NNNN-. They have 3 holes lined up vertically in all the plates. One end the inlet is at the bottom hole, the output fitting is at the top hole of the plates on the opposite side. So what you're saying is, each cell needs 7 more plates reconfigured, or combine the 2 cells into 1 cell? In your plate configuration, does it matter which side is the input and output? Such as input from the res, is it the "-" or "+" end, or doesn't matter?
- I ran the HHOCalculator.exe on this 19 plate configuration and at 15 amps would get 2.819 LPM from it. 2 cells with 19 plates each running at 10 amps a piece would yield a total of 3.758 LPM. MYOLDYOURGOLD stated to keep the output to no more than 4% of the volume of the intake, which then wouldn't cause a flashback from the heater grid. So how much is too much if we're talking LPM's? Will the 2 cell configuration I currently have work well enough?
- As for the Waterless Bubbler, I found your post of the drawing. I had bought a Dryer, which does essentially the same. Only improvement on the Dryer would be to install a drain plug at the bottom of it, rather than having to unscrew the body off the top. I saw a YouTube video of a guy who made a filter out of PVC pipe and showed the difference in the flame off his torch with, and without the filter. I agree it will make a big difference. It had a clean burning flame. Plus that KOH is caustic and bad news on engine parts from what I found out.
- Besides the reservoir tank being essentially the first Bubbler, do see any reason to use a partially water filled 2ndary Bubbler before the Dryer or Waterless Bubbler?
- Finally, what is the water injection system you both are using
