if u do ;thisss the pumpp will then have to pump againtst turbo pressure plus normal atmost pressure,, if u put pump and reservaoir into hard coantainmeant ten pump will  be back to normal,,,,, u must open to add water anaway,,,its an old trubo re corvair traick, for water allcoanol booste, usee windshsiel washer pump in hard box and pressurize boxx, buck
