Aren't those the same article, regarding injection location? Well written, by the way.

If I may inquire, how did you quantify the benefit of squirting liquid droplets onto a spinning piece of turbomachinery? Intuitively, it seems what would happen is the liquid would be slung radially off the rotating wheel, and evaporate as it travels up the blades, else produce reduced benefit from evaporation at such low ambient injection temperatures. Unless, of course, it is part of a two stage system, and the initial pre-compressor injection variables are all controlled very precisely.

I considered injection pre-compressor on mine, but decided against the idea because of the relatively low boost I run. I also had trepidation regarding killing the compressor wheel.
