          Water injection is a seperate system that will spray water, and sometimes Water/Meth into the intake, this works like an intercooler, but immediately and drastically reduces the intake temp. Which increases power...

            This method has been around for years.

                not just intake temp, it creates evaporation in the cylinders causing a drastic cooling effect in two stages, just dangerous if ur boost cannot cope without it and it packs up

                  That's why you mix Meth with the water...

                    no i mean if the water injector fails for any reason, even electrical, can be reeeealy expensive nitrous is still better tho

                      Why would nitrous be better? Which system you talking about...

                      Wet system? Dry system? or Direct injection system?

                        any system you like :P injecting nitrous causes extreme amounts of cooling even compared to water injection, and the extra oxygen is even more power, although this wont last long at high boost as a fail safe.

                        I'm still confused why you would want to apply this technology to a corsa VXR, the turbo must be absolutely maxed out to be pinking, unless the turbo used is too big for the engine :/ or just bad cooling

                          In theory its a bit like how you get better performance on a damp cool morning/day, air density is thinner

                            Cause it drops the temp in the chamber about 200 C...!!

                            Only good is that...! It can be used on stock turbo too with no worries!
                            If you raise the advance through the new maps you will need those extra Octanes that the water/meth gives you...!

                            Its a must for extreme tuning stages...!!
