I was just PM'ing someone about this but you guys who are upping your boost levels with a boost controller might want to look into water injection in order to reduce the risk of detonation under high boost. It also gives you better performance during what would normally be heat soak conditions.

Just a thought...

IF your going to make it yourself, you will need a very strong and highpressure unit to inject the water. You want it to come out as a mist and not a stream of water.

This concept was first developed for radial engines used on aircrafts. It was called ADI though. Anti detonation injection. It was used during take off role.

I dont think this will really be needed for the current turbo setup being that the turbo runs out of breath above 4K rpm. At 4k RPM the boost pressure starts to drops down to 13psi.

exhaustdepot is right and seems to have a solid understading of this technology (which isn't new).

For more info on water injection, check out- www.aquamist.co.uk

I am by no means an expert, but wouldn't it help in hot climates to help cool the air intake temperature, and could CO2 be used vs. water for a better cooling effect?

Just add a NAWWWWWWZ stickers and that should take care of everything. An additional Type R sticker would be overkill and would probably blow up the engine. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

That unit is to spray the outside of the FMIC. Teh EVO comes with that stock. Aquimist is sprayed inside the plumbing.

Yeah I know Hec. But he was talking about lowering the air intake temps, and that's what the N-tercooler does. Water injection lowers the temp inside the combustion chamber right?

Are they equally effective? Obviously, water is cheaper than NOS, but I just have a hard time with the idea of squirting water inside my engine. I'm sure it's safe, but it SEEMS weird. :wink:

And the EVO may come with a water sprayer, but it doesn't come with a NOS sprayer does it? I would think that the cryogenic cooling effect of NOS could be enormous.

The water is sprayed at a high pressure. It comes out like a mist which will cause no problems to the engine. This reduces CHT. Also the water will not be an issue. And Gee Wiz info: Water is a byproduct of the combustion process.

As well as steam cleaning :p

Propane injection has similar cooling effects and adds fuel. But, as was said, I wouldn't think any of this is necessary with the stock turbo setup.
