I will second Joey's comment.
I rely on my water injection a lot.

  Speaking of cans of worms...

  I have nothing but great things to say about the water injection on my
  little RC car.  It's brought EGT's down considerably and I've been
  able to ramp up the ignition timing and boost to 100 octane levels
  with just straight water.

  Keep in mind that I have one less cylinder than the rest of you and
  have a pretty big FMIC on there, but I think the results would be the
  same, regardless, especially considering how similar these engines
  actually are (inline, DOHC, 4v/cyl, although the AAN sounds sweeter
  than the 4G63).

  I say go for the water first, then do a front mount if you feel you need to.
