99% in agreement with you Noel - but there are highly-tuned turbo 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.

Good input.


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.
