    Adding water injection alone will not give you power. What it does is allows you to run more timing, which in turn gives you more power. I personally would not rely on it as the lines will plug up and melt a motor down. You can use it as a preventive measure to help minor pings and cool the motor down under high loads with no problems.

    This is one of the better ones I know of.

    It's great for turbo and supercharged engines, but there are much better mods you can do on a naturally aspirated engine.

    These guys make a awesome setup:

    the snow performance kit is badass. and yes it allows you to run more timing without detonation. Instead of water though run alcohol

    Run washer solvent as it is 30% methanol.

    With personal experience on diesel and turbo'd 4-bangers, running water alone will allow more timing, and lowers EGTS about 100 degrees, adding meth to the mix only drops egts about half but gives you a few extra horses.
