to make certain that it's an ultra fine mist that gets sprayed inside.
Otherwise, water droplets can physically damage the turbo's compressor
as they impact into the blades. And if the water supply isn't cut off
before or right as the engine stops, you're gonna get rust and
oxidation inside the engine's intakes. Plus a puddle of water that's
gonna get sucked into the combustion chambers as well. And still
you've got to make sure that pure distilled water is used as well.

Yeah, water injection is feasable, but would be a pain to maintain.
