My thinking exactly. It seems that Porsche crowd is quite conservative in their approach to engine building and tuning. My new engine will have WI for two reasons - added safety on street fuel, and extra power on race fuel. I am relatively new to 911 turbo, but I had good experience with water injection on other cars.
You just have to use good quality system with fail safes for running out of water, plugged jet, or pump failure.
Some people feel, that 400hp out of 3.3 turbo is nowhere near the rugged edge some Mitsus, Subies and others are running. I have to disagree, considering, that we are making that power at about 1000rpm less, on air cooled engine with knock prone heads. The fact that most donít use any knock detection/control and run quite lean mixtures on boost scares me. And then there is the cost Ö
