    This did cross my mind, another item on the list now then.

    Would there be any advantage running WMI on revo stage 2 standard k04 turbo?

    from my own experience, YES. Massive difference.

    DannyC on SCN ran WMI on his full stage 2 LCR, on the BAM engine with small port head still, he ran 50/50 water/meth, and it allowed him to dail in an extra 7.25 degrees of timing, and it was SERIOUSLY rapid!

    I ran one on my >600bhp ibiza racecar
    EGT's rose which I did'nt want.
    hence my comment..

    K04's run too hot already......... keeping them hot will elevate egt's further.. Manifold may appreciate the slower heat/cool transition which should be better for stress fatigue, BUT, the egt's will be too hot.. damned if you do, damned if you dont

    Ceramic would have the same effect. Keeps more heat in.

    If theres enough EGT headroom it can be beneficial, but when things are already at the edge of or in the danger zone, more heat is not what you want.

    Watercooled exhaust manifold a-la marine engines anyone?

    From Welly's results when he had a K04 hybrid and fitted an exhaust mani, i'd say that will make the biggest difference.

    I received this email from them yesterday out of the blue.

    "They are now ready , FYI. We should have a price in the next hours - just working it out
    These are 240 cell now - no issues with emissions - 321 stainless, robotic tig - so they are
    on par with the big boys, but wont bust your wallet."
