If you can burn the mixture, then it's not rich, cause it will have burnt??? lost me. MPG, ok fast cars won't have good MPG but can help it along
Big power jap turbo's use a lot of fuel for cylinder cooling.
Watch an evo or something when they boot it, lots of black hazy smoke.
but if you could do water instead, would that be better than a puff of smoke?? WRC seem to use it.
Yep, water injection is good too. But water takes up space that could be used for a charge that would burn.
Most use water injection as well.
this is a idea just thought of, tell me if mad, but how about methanol inj, not water, ok specific heat capicty diff, but it would burn, and cool charge
'Water Injection' is usually a water/methanol mix, 50/50 is comon.
Not looked into it, but from what i know methanol is slow burning. And the reason for the mix is that it slows down the burn slightly so preventing knock.
Water injection doesn't really give you power, just allows you to get closer to the limit (ignition timing, more boost, whatever) to make more power.
certainly does, either allows mad advance, or mad boost increase. both are useful. nitromethane type stuff, that would help. defo release more vavavooom
Cris talk so correct about water injection, the water don't make more power, only get cold the chamber, and it is a option for you make more power. But if you get cold the chamber with rich mixture, you can increase more power, because you get cold the chamber(the same logical of water), and burn more fuel, then, you make more energy.
Because this is nice use Methanol in "water injection" than water, because you get cold the chamber, and make more power because methanol make energy.

Turbo kits and performance parts:
Yup, I'm, getting talked into letting Chris turbo my car! All £££ depending though at the moment!
James, apparently all the 1.4 & 1.6 16v throttle bodies are the same size.
On the SBD website it says to use the 2.0 injectors with there 136bhp throttle body kit so if you want to run 150 odd I imagine they would be needed.
I think the only mod sbd do to the engine for these tb's is the rod bolts. But as chris said, this wont be a high reving engine. Better safe than sorry though!
With cams and porting, the peak power will be further along the rev band, so with management, you can push it on easily. so rod and head bolt be a plan
