[DML] Re: Delorean Turbo

When I saw this injection system I was impressed too. Simple as a
brick. The major downside is you will have to fuss with it to get the
settings right, not very adjustable, and it has to be done by
trial-and-error. Water injection is very reliable as long as you keep
it down to reasonable (low) levels. It worked on fighter aircraft in
WW II with superchargers at high altitudes and was OK as long as it
wasn't used for too long a period or over-abused. If you run out of
water you are probably using it too much. Fill it when you fill your
gas tank and 1/2 gallon should be plenty. Besides, if you are always
in boost you will go through a tank of gas pretty fast too!!!!!!!! If
I wasn't trying to sell my Island Turbo I would be experimenting with
this. Should be good for another LB or 2 of boost.
