    I didn't want to take a chance so I installed a Damond Motorsports OCC at 400 miles. Before I bought it I asked the service manager at my local Ford dealer if it would void my warranty and smiled and told my no. He commented that he wants customers to do that to minimize any potential warranty claims. lol

    Probably some good deals on old colonoscopy probes .

    I doubt this is the case with water vapor, as water cools down both turbo, intercooler, and engine.

    However, I've seen videos of water injection at the turbo input, wrecking havoc with the blades.


    I guess the guy wasn't using water vapor, but injected streams of water in the engine with something like a spray bottle or so.

    Steam is the best thing, but it needs to be close to ambient air temperature.

    Water drops need to be as small as possible passing the turbo.

    another option is inject some water post turbo, pre-intercooler, and run the engine at low RPM high loads.
    Perhaps best done when the engine is still hot, and injected through the turbo blades (with the engine off).

    Problem there is gulps of water can enter the engine air intake, and damage the engine...
    Not sure if there's any easier way to do this, than to just take off the intake manifold and spray carbon cleaner.
    I would think any grill degreaser would work fine, as it's composition is just baked on oil and carbon.

    I now have 25k miles on my engine, and sometimes notice the RPMs drop below 700RPM when letting go of the throttle, clutch depressed (or neutral).

    Ahh, by anything I meant the solvents and stuff not water. Water injection helps, meth even better, still no substitute for gasoline port injection though.

    Here's a vid from Shouty Kilmer on a Ford (I think a Focus with Ecoboost 2.0).



    I was thinking, do our cars rout the crankcase oil to the air intake?
    Because we have a turbo car, and thus, basically no vacuum after the turbo.
    It would just blow all the crankcase oil back out.
    The only way to get any residual oil in there, is by injecting it before the turbo, and I'm quite sure, oil is not injected before the turbo.

    There's a check valve to stop boost pressure. There's a diagram of the pcv system here somewhere.
