result in catastrophic failure

" .... This is not a major issue at all. A properly-dimensioned water injection is just like some sort of "chemical intercooler". ..... "

maybe
how ever
an IMproperly designed water injection system can be an engine killer

( many / most of the discussions regarding water injection on these very pages in this very forum would be
IMproperly designed for varying reasons. imho
and would ultimately result in catastrophic failure )

and
a lambda sensor killer
and
a DPF killer

so i would say it can be a very major issue NOT to be attempted by someone UNwilling to add those UNimprovments to his or her car , during the course of the experiment

we all pick our own paths , and , we are liable for our own actions when we pick the wrong path
