    Water injection

    Given up on the idea of part exchanging my turbo (in good working order) for a hybrid costing just under a grand. I expected to keep the old one in reserve.

    I read some where that the new Turbo Astra's wil be producing 250 bhp as standard when their launched later on, does this mean a more powerful turbo's on its way ?

    Thinkin about mapped water injection for now, been reading up on it a much as i can, could cost around £700 fitted.

    Benifits being: Detonation control, cylinder cooling, stop the ecu retarding the ignition and dumping in extra fuel at high boost when things start hotting up. Increased volumetric efficiency.

    Any one gone down this road yet ?

    If your willing to spend the cash, you can have it set up to disable boost if you run out of water or the pump fails
