Any downside to water injection?

Just wondering if there's any downside to water injection. I'm not looking for more power - Jody Tipton's taken care of that - and my EGTs are pretty good: I hit 1250 rarely, but on occasion with 8k load up a long or steep grade with the revs down (Again, Jody has done great work in getting EGTs down.). I'm just wondering what potential risks of a water injection system are and what, if any, benefits there are besides reducing EGTs (mileage, engine wear, etc.).

Also, how much (or what range) of an EGT drop can be expected?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the responses. With just water, is there a power increase that could put the head gaskets at risk?
