I got the Capa water injection kit, and yesterday I was told that water injection isn't such a crash hot idea at all.
I've also got a suitable intercooler.
I was thinking of using the intercooler anyways as it would mean that I wouldn't have to worry about toping up the water level.
But would it be better to use the water injection rather to keep the air intake piping shorter?
What about setting the water injection to spray on to the intercooler, would there be any point (cool it down type thing)?

damn man u of all ppl

SEARCH!


water injection great for those hot days
remember an itercooler will only cool down the intake charge to ambient temp
ie if outside air is 50deg c the intercooler will drop the intake charge to 50deg c not any lower
use 50% water and %50 methanol for best results
and a good water injection setup the water tank should last about a week
depending on how u drive
the water does not have to be ON on all the time only when high loads/higher rpm is being used!
