That is a great combination. Most people using WI are using it with an intercooler. Spraying after the IC, just before the TB.
Then there are people like magna that run a lots of boost and tons of water with no IC. That is always an option. The WI is a great addition to an IC. I personally feel the IC to be necessary and something that should come first.

I run only the WI also. Love the setup and has given me no problems so far except torque and clutch slip.

Its a ******* outstanding combo and will let you get away with nutty amounts of boost on pump gas.

I wouldn't think twice about running 15 psi on something T28 or T3 sized.

Yes but you have a FM2 i presume with FMIC and link ecu he wants to see what he can do on his NB wich is abit harder on engine management choices given his ECU controlled alternator, higher compression, and obd2 crap. WI would go a long way to do this for him i believe.
