    I think you should call your dealer and get a new motor on order.
    so if your using 10 psi from the boost side to push it you have to have over 10psi of pressure to push it back into the charged portion of our systems. just flooding it you loose a bit part of the benefits of a higher spray for the mist part. With the car off does the valve open over time with no vacuum?

    I was thinking of a water injection system for controlled "seafoam" cleaning and cooling with a window squirter. We even have a convenient vacuum port used just for the charcoal fuel vapor canister, but too many places for it to puddle in the G2 intake. Vacuum might suck the water through the pump regardless.

    On the G4, methanol is just a fuel with less energy than gas, could be used to wash the valves as well as cool the WOT fuel charge, but I would get the wet part of a wet NOS system instead.

    This is actually the primary reason I’m considering it. Honestly, not that concerned with tuning for methanol, just having the option to occasionally mist with methanol to clean the valves.
