Superchargers and turbochargers generate more than just boost. They generate a ton of incremental heat during operation, resulting in a ‘heat-soaked’ engine and eroded performance. So their power increase creates its own power decrease problem. Oops.
But an Active Autowerke water/alcohol injection system will help chill the intake charge to a cooler temperature – effectively combating the heat soak effect. Additionally, the water/alcohol mix increases your engine’s knock limit – thus serving as insurance against unwanted high boost detonation.
If there’s one mod you should be considering for better forced induction performance, this is it.
