Talking Hey CCR, new guy here and I might need a bit of help!

Hopefully y'all can chip in a bit of information if you do happen to own one of these kits or had experience with em'.

So, I have decided on CoolingMist stage 1 deluxe kit coming in at $305 as the best bang for the buck and from many recommendations that their pumps actually do what they're supposed to do.

My questions:

1. For strictly EGT control purposes is a water/meth completely safe for my engine given that I do not goof on the installation and install a shunt valve so water doesn't leak into my cylinders? I would most likely be runnin' distilled or filtered water to keep particles out of the engine.

2. I have heard about runnin' the water/meth pre-turbo over the post-turbo may be more beneficial from a few friends and from a video I shall reference. Is there any major/minor difference in runnin' pre-turbo or post turbo?

3. If I do decide to run water/meth from windshield washer fluid, is there anything I should watch out for? I am a bit nervous about the whole puttin' water into my engine but from watching videos and readin' stuff makes sense since I'm injecting a fine mist. I sure do want the reassurance from people who have had or has experience runnin' water/meth.

4. I may be takin' a bunch of precautions and sound a bit paranoid, is it necessary to install the shunt valve and use filtered water? And since we're injector WATER into the cylinders, am I gonna see some rust if I take the apart the engine in the future? From my logic, I don't think I'd see rust since the water has already evaporated and didn't have to chance to sit on the cylinders and eat away.

And hello, I'm quite new to the org.
