Nitrous or water/meth

I have everything in my sig. I will be towing a lawn trailer sometimes. Mostly just my play toy. My EGTs are around the "E" on the Auto Meter pyro. gauge that is like 2,000 degrees. Want to get down to something safer.

Water/meth will do a better job at lower EGTs

I replied to you in the other thread where you were looking at the nitrous kit. Water is my vote. Aftermarket I/C like a banks or spearco, or a gogo ported intake manifold would help too. I don't have personal experience with the manifold but I hear it drops temps 100-150*. I do have a banks technicooler though. I saw about a 50* drop unloaded on the highway and about 100* drop at WOT or towing.

How about a bigger turbo? Your setup looks like mine, so I know how you feel seeing EGTs that high. A larger turbo would give you more air and hopefully bring thos temps way down
