water meth or propane?

just wondering what would be better for a tuck that is hauling stuff or are they more for drag racing & sled pulling? I don't know how it works with the water meth does it spray all the time or wen the EGT gets to a certain temp? I thought that propane was on all the time?

Water meth is safer. You can set it to when it reaches a certain EGT it will kick in or you can set it to use a switch on and off.

As far as propane i cant tell you much about it.

For towing something like the Snow Performance Stage 3 water injection would be best. The stage 3 is boost and EGT referrenced and works fairly well. I wouldn't recommend any meth for towing. Propane is a little too unpredictable and won't really help control EGTs.

If EGT's are your concern... stick with water and forget either drug...

Hey Matt I got a question for you, Im deff. going with a meth kit, I was looking at stage 2 and 3, other then stage 3 controlling EGTs you think I should do the stage 3 over the 2? I even talked to the guys down at snow and they said for my truck I could use a stage 2 and that would be fine, but then again my EGTs go WAY high WAY quick and I wanna lower them down. whats your feelings on the stage 2/3?

BTW ask Nate about that Evo that pulled on me by about 2-3 cars. And I was only in 2wd. He got my after we were really moving, he made almost 400 to the wheels. Insane night on friday! You need to take a ride up here so we can all hang out.

I have driven up there but you laid out on us! I just like the stage 3 controller because I'm more of a technical type. The stage 2 will get the job done just fine and cost less $$$. For your application it's more of a personal preference than necessity kind of thing.
