Engines always run best on clean dry air as any moisture contained in it will mean less oxygen content.
99% in agreement with you Noel - but there are highly-tuned
cars (Imprezas & Evo especially), that give a bit more power (or lose less in high ambient temperature conditions), when fitted with water injection to help lower the air temp.
A rare situation (especially so in this country
), hence the low percentage stated.
EDIT: Nice one Pat - you were thinking the same as me!
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
