Why do you want water injection ?
You haven't said otherwise so I assume it's a stock tickford motor in which case there's ALOT more to be gained with other mods than water injection

Usually, it can also be used in high compression NA engines which I'll be looking at shortly

generaly that is just call a water sprayer.


water injection is injecting water in the intake system of the engine.
it's used to remove heat to help prevent detonation.

it has been seen to let an engine with iver 12:1 compression run on very poor fuel less then 95 octane.

a friend of mine used it when he turbod an engine that was built for N/A
he was running 12psi with 11:1 compression.

that was later bumped up to 15psi when he changed to a 50/50 mix of water and methonol

you don't realy need a kit to do it, all of the needed parts can be found at your local hardware store.

water tank
pump
switches
hose
nozzles/jets

what tickford 6 said

BUt the kits can offer better water misting and be far more effective at delivering the spray

some kits even have a boost/vaccum control so the more boost or less vaccum the more water is sprayed

:P Thanks for the great input on water injection
in response to mods done
Have tweeked breathing by adding
flows.two and a half inch sports exhaust.K & N filter,
and some mods off my own to the air intake. (experimental at this stage. but results look promissing).
plus suspension & better braking mods.
and awaiting the arrival off a decent set plugs and leads
future mods are on the drawing board, but limited funds are a factor.
Still keen to hear about water injection though.

Im using a water injection setup but only because of forced induction... i dont run intercooler so anything to bring down intake charge temp is a good thing...

Im not sure how effective WI would be on your combo. I guess would allow you to set a very aggressive timing map and maybe lean out the fuel mixture...
