Ah I forgot you want to inject both pre compressor AND post ic.
The only downsides then are the possible erosion, and puddling in the bottom of the IC (other than complexity).

Some have set up their pre turbo solenoid to start only when the turbo gets to the right side of it's compressor map, so that the map is moved at the right time.

That's really interesting, and I'd never thought of this.

I don't wanna splurge on a real progressive kit, and already have a "Y" fitting.

I'm thinking about using 2 pressure switches and 2 solenoids. Main nozzle after IC comes on at 8psi, and a smaller nozzle pre-compressor comes on at 10psi to shift the map a little.

With my hustler-*****-sized turbo I would definitely not mind having 12psi at something better than 60% efficiency for once.

That is a really cool idea (pun intended).

You can find DO stuff really cheap if you know where to look (ClubGP)
