Is that some sort of water injection?

Not really, rather then passing the water through the top water jacket then out the front, it has been drilled and tap above each cylinder. So the engine now runs a lot cooler and drops the rest of cracking heads. Never seen anything like this and once I worked out how it worked and what it did I had to try it. Also it had a rebuild and a lot changed inside the engine. Little mk2 flies.

Its refreshing to see a yellow RS2000 getting around instead of the hordes of white and red. Heres a pic of my esky:
