Should I???

Hey guys, new to the board and this is my first post. I recently bought a 2004 Ford 350 6.0 4x4 and since had the headgaskets replaced (head studs) new turbo all on warranty

my truck has the following mods
airaid intake
bullydog PMT
dual 4" exhaust straight piped

Now my question - My egt's are getting up there on the extreme setting, easily reaching close to 1300 when on it for 5-6 seconds. I have an opportunity to get the snow water/meth injection system from a friend. will my truck handle this, is it a wise decision, what else can i do to get my EGT's down

Thanks

Kris in Vancouver Canada

Hey Chris, welcome to the site....the snow is good.....but I have a couple of questions? Did you just get stock head studs put in or aftermarket so they can handle the pressure and you don't blow head gaskets again??? Second question, do you have a good set of gauges to keep an eye on everything?? And finally get rid of that Bully Dog and get yourself an SCT for some real power....also have you heard of the the Zoodad mod? it will help lower your EGT's as well.....

I had ARP headstuds installed, when they re-did my headgaskets at ford

I will keep my bully dog PMT for now, it does everything i want and displays 4 parameters at a time so i already have my eye on things, power is absolutely awesome

never heard of the zoodad mod, what is it?????

twin turbo is right. you will be happy with the zoodad, the bullydog is nothing compared to the sct, and the snow is good since you already have studs.
remember on the water/meth ratio.. for cooling you want no more than 15meth, any more than that and egt's will go back up along with HP
