higher egts with snow?

Just had a snow performance stage 3 installed. The power and fuel mileage is awesome. The problem is my egts have increased by 200-300. They were supposed to go the other way. Has anyone else seen this? I am running blue windshield washer fluid. My mechanic dumped 1 can of heat per 1 gal blue fluid. He put in 2 gal total. I thought maybe with the heat it was to hot so I added 3.5 gal more blue, but i cant tell that it changed anything. Anyone have any ideas? thanks

You better watch it, really the only way this would happen is you have to much meth, cause meth increases egts. I would drain the tank and run just water than go from there

Yup--way too much alcohol in the mix. WW fluid is more than plenty and straight water is better for EGT control. Remember.......unless you are racing then the real reason for the Snow is EGT CONTROL. Alcohol related damage in a diesel is UGLY and expensive. It IS a diesel not a top alcohol dragster (I think). I've seen more than one piston melted and/or chunked by too much alcohol.

yes--every time it gets down any add water OR pump out what you have and save it for the track, although it maybe way too stout for that.

Its a 7 gal tank. It would probably hold 3 gal right now. Maybe i should start over though. My mechanic said he called snow and they said his mix was acceptable, but now I am wondering.

When you run straight water does it reduce performance? or same performance with lower egts? it seems injecting pure water into the air system would also bog it out i guess you would say? because water doesn't burn? could someone please explain so i understand more? i hate not knowing something...

the water is injected in and goes through the engine and just pretty much turns to steam and the result of this is lower egt's, and it's pretty much a mist getting injected into the intake so it's not enough to lower performance.

Straight water injection is actually good for your truck.
