Mainly a diesel thing through the years. I have seen it used in some VERY high performance FI applications but I think its not something you introduce to a car as a first mod by any means.

from my understanding, the injection is meant to cool charges and to cool the supercharger down. thats the only thing i can see it doing, except possibly helping lubricate inside the supercharger if injected before it... Just thought i'd try and help but im not knowledgable on the subject

I was talking to a friend and told him that I had finaly found my injectors at a decent deal. And he was telling me about how he used to use the same size injector on a highrise intake just under the carb. to cool the temprature down on one of his race motors for a tractor pull. It is also a verry common thing on old airplane engines that's whare it was most widley used
