Default Convert IC water spray to Water Injection?

Anyone know how hard this would be? I think you would only need a solenoid or something to make this work with the future UTEC. This would turn a worthless gizmo into a really cool OEM Water/Alk. injection system with min $. Please give your thoughts.

IC Water spray currently has water tank, water pump, tubing run to the IC, and an internal switch.

You would obviously need injector sprays and tuning, but what else?

You would need a new pump, and the controller. The spray pump could never make the required pressure. You need the controller to prevent overspraying at low loads.

You would also need a new turbo to take advantage of the water injection's capabilities. It effectively allows higher boost on pump gas. Without higher boost, the water injection system can actually decrease engine performance.
