[turbobike] Water injection

Hi Gang:

I need some advice on water injection. I was told or read somewhere that water injection was relitively simple and inexpensive and would alow for the use compression ratios of 9 or 10 to 1 as is found with stock pistons.  I believe it also was supposed to inhibit detonation using stock compression ratios even at boost pressures as high as 12 or 14 psi.

This all sounds to good to be true.  It it is true, it sounds like I could substitute low compression pistons and high dollar rods for a water injection system. This would also save a lot of motor disassembly work.

Maybe I'm dreaming but could I go from low boost (5 to 8 psi) on a stock motor to 12 to 14 psi by just adding a water injection system.

Any input is always greatly appreciated.
