Snow Performance Water/Meth Inj is it worth the money and does it help

I have been looking into snow performance water met inj and the max mpg kit, it sayd it adds around 60 hp and 2-3 mpg and also lowers egt's. I have looked everywhere and it seems it cost around a grand for the full setup, anyone running this and is there a major difference with the kit installed? I currently have intake and straight exhaust, thanks

Dont think it requires tuning, but also dont think it could hurt to have it factored in. Also it makes for a cleaner burn of the fuel to my knowledge (hence better milage ) I think people use mainly windshield wiper fluid which is roughly 60 % h20 and 40% meth. but along with everything else, Only good in moderation, too much will toast your engine.

I think that Devils own, is actually a cheaper kit and people also have DIY'd their own as well. Just do some searching on this forum.

And, I do plan on getting a kit as soon as I get some Ching together.

Do you mind if I ask why you would want this? Usually guys buy this if they are pushing more fuel and have a bigger turbo. Mileage increase isn't much of a reason to buy it, nor does it increase it considerably. It lowers your EGT's, but unless you're looking to get higher HP numbers, I wouldn't start off with buying this. Just my .02

Tunning is not required. But this is a supporting mod, it allows you to run more boost, and more timing because it cools the the intake air temps down so much. Cooler intake air temps also cool down the egt

Benefits Include:

* Increase horsepower safely by 10-15%.
* Lower air temperatures by 50-200+ degrees.
* Decrease cylinder temperatures up to 300 degrees.
* Reduce the effects of heat soak in warmer climates.
* Allows you to safely run more boost and timing.
* Reduces carbon and helps maintain a clean combustion chamber.
* Increases octane at user programmable boost levels.

what about running strieght water just to lower your egt's without creating HP? i am already tuned with a 4" exhaust and a few other mods. i just want to lower my egts while on my tunes without creating a bunch of power or else i would have to get different injectors and possibly a bigger turbo.

thanks guys for the info, i have looked and searched and researched this particular model and brand, snow performance seems to be a nice setup, i do want a little extra HP but not trying to run a race, i am currently waiting on an SCT tuner to come in and then i wanna buy this to lower EGT and for the mpg, says its proven to get 2-3 extra mpg and lower egts and around 50-75 extra horses, how could it hurt anything??

I have not seen or heard of this being in relationship to water injection. With ever mod thats out there people tend to just point fingers. "i put new injectors in my car and 2 weeks latter i threw a rod, must been the injectors"

If someone is injectiong excessivly to much methanol you can get cylinder wash. That would cause the cylinder wear. Diesel tend not to run straight methanol. I only recomend a 15-25% mix of methanol. It only take alittle in the mix and with the proper nozzle sizes 200-300 deg drop in egt.

If it was an issues you would see more people with it. This product does tend to lead people into the if alttle is good more is better issue. This is why i perferr people to use common sense with nozzle sizing.
