    Default Header use in closed engine compartment?

    Not sure if this is the right place for this question. Is it a bad idea to use water injected headers instead of water jacketed headers in a closed engine compartment?

    Also, water injected is prone to tiny fragments of sealant, hose, rust, etc plugging the nozzles. You wouldn't know this was happening until you saw the hatch on fire.
