    Turbo Exhaust Questions

    Hi,

    Just wanted to ask you turbo guys if you are having any troubles with the water going back up the exhaust and getting to the turbo?

    I have noticed that most of the turbo kits dont have much of a bend in the exhaust pipe and surely when you left of the throttle water must shoot up the pipe?

    Anybody experienced this other than the hardcore racers.

    I have some turbos and i never had problem with the water in the exhaust. I inject water directly into the exhaust ad never i had problems.

    I wouldnt think that there is much chace of thes happening as even when you lift off you still have forward motion so there is nothing to force the water up the exhaust and when the engine is running even on idle there is stiil alot of gas flow to push the water out. My 0.2 R88

    I not talkig about the water injection. Im talking about having the turbo close to the waterline and when you are off the ski or getting on is there any problems with water going up the exhaust and going in to the turbo?

    +1 I have been wondering the same thing. Has anyone put a water trap after the turbo or is it really not a problem?
