Can it be done? Of course! If you're on a budget and not going for much power, you can definitely skip the BOV and IC. You'll want more power eventually though, so you'll have to replace the piping with an intercooler. After, you could try a WI setup, but have to understand how risky it is.
dude why the hell do you bash all the WI standalone **** is it that daunting to just ****** design and maintain to you or have you nvr used it?

No, but I dont need to destroy an engine from running out of water in boost or inject too much water (again) accidentally to know it happens.

Like I said, I'm a fan of water injection, but instead of an intercooler? Thats pretty shady. Again, WI is a supplemental setup, not a passive setup.

So my prior success has been a fluke? If a dumb boy in KY can do it what can't anyone else serius man just cause ur to scared to try **** u shouldnt stear others away. If we all did that then no one would have gotten past the kits offered on these cars. I do believe to run a WI setup it takes half a brain and to maintain it is simpler than slap a IC in the front overheat ur motor cause ur rad is to small and u have to run ur AC then spin bearings cause u use regular rotella oil that broke down almost completle about 50 miles after u stuck it in the car. "Oh no oil lasts atleast 3k miles" WI is fine as a standalone complex dude u just have to pay attention.
But hell a damn 200+whp miata will put u in the ER rather easily if you dont pay attention to it either so hmm seems to me they call to the same type person.

All I'm saying is that WI is not a good system to use by itself. WI should NOT be used instead of an intercooler.

It also helps to be able to understand someone with proper grammar . I can barely tell what you're saying.

You are right Orion u dont understand. Put ur turbo where ur mouth is and do something until then u dont know ****. And have no room to talk about what anyone has done or what is capable.

i reckon if he put his turbo where his mouth is, he'd run about 10psi.

I'm done in this thread.
