Been wondering about it too? I know it brings down Exhaust Gas Temps as well as adds some power but doesn't it cool in cylinder temps during the combustion process as well?

225 on a single charger thats your problem mainly, honestly you have some large injectors for driving if thats what your doing. But thats the price you gonna pay for that. You can use water n meth but to much meth go bye motor.

with that turbo you would be better off with 190s for a daily... Alot of 6.0 guys dont run it but since I never ran it on mine I wont say to do it or not. mine has nitrous but thats not an everyday solution. your tuner can probably pull more fuel back. might want to look into compounds...

I would look into getting the tuning adjusted. What other mods do you have? Are you running an intercooler?

Water/meth will help, but I'd run it heavy on the water and light on the meth. Like 75%water...

Compounds would be the best solution, but also the most expensive. A bigger single might clean more fuel out on top, but will have more lag and may have surging issues as well.

Yes people have had issues running water meth, but it usually only happens when they run too much meth to gain power. I'd run it, but just keep it mostly water to lower EGT's.
