Read my TB porting thread in Performance. Look at the pics. See the 'smile' shaped port in the back of the TB? Just below the bore? That'* the coolant path.

Hey Bill, when I researched water injection, I only saw references to supercharged or turbocharged engines as a means for increasing output by keeping the charge cooler.

I would be interested in a simple system for the L36 just to keep it clean. Are there any significant differences in what is needed/cost?
