Fred, the water/meth injection directly into the tb is more efficient because it would take far less coolant for the same reduction in temp than if you were to spray coolant directly onto the i/c. To cool externally you'd maybe have to carry 15 gallons of coolant on-board vs. 1/2 gallon.
I also don't think the level of mechanical complexity would be much different between the two systems.
