My vote would be for nitrous, just due to the fact that you get a dual benefit. Additional oxygen in addition to tremendous cooling of your charge air.

Engine is all back together. Now I'm just waiting on a weekend to put it back in the car. Thanks. Either Labor Day or following that my wife & children are headed to the in-laws for a few weeks. Then I'll have nothing but free time on my hands.

You know, you ought to change your s/n to goodkarma by the way.

meh, i'm just glad mine is finally running. the rotated mount downpipe gets dangerously close to some wire bundles. i found that out the hard way. however it took us a long time to find the burnt wire, which sucked, and is why i am just now getting tuned. good luck getting it in, the hard part is over now...

....you can buy isopropyl alcohol and distilled water anywhere/anytime.....works good, lasts a long time....if ya use nitrous, you are in danger of runnin' out-----likely at the WRONG time...

Not to mention w/a injection helps all the time, whereas nitrous only helps occasionally.

Well

Nitrous will help spool that turbo a TON.
Nitrous is also a HELL of a hard thing on your motor. You stand a very good chance of going BOOM


Water injection will allow you to tune a bit better spool, not nearly like nitrous though
Water injection will ALMOST guarantee that if tuned anywhere near right, your motor should last a VERY long time.
All depends what you want. upsides and downsides to both.
