MagnaCharger and Water in Exhaust.......

I have noticed since I have had the TVS-2300,Cam,and CAI installed my car has lot's of water in the exhaust.I have worked in years past with Air compressors and there is always problems with water in a air system.That is the reason for air dryers,filters,etc.Is this normal and will it cause any problems down the road?I have noticed it changes depending on the temp and humidity.I'm not loosing any water it just seems like condensation.

Water is a byproduct of combustion...when you increase the amount of air forced into an internal combustion engine, the byproduct of that would be increased H20.

That is what I am thinking also.

Another good reason to go with a stainless steel exhaust. Corsa, Borla and Magna Flow are just a few, pick a sound and make sure of stainless construction.

When air gets compressed you also concentrate the water in it. As it exits the engine as a hot gas and hits the cooling efects of the exhaust system it condenses back out thus driping occurs. Should'nt ever hurt anything in the engine and also happens in naturally aspirated engines to a lesser extent. It will however eat up mild steel exhaust over time.
