Water/Meth? Suggestions Please!

I have been thinking about doing water/meth injection for a while now. I want to lower EGT's and add a few more horsepower.

Is this a fairly safe mod to do? Does it change boost at all? The reason I ask is beacuse I dont have studs.

And lastly, how hard is this system to install. I was considering Snow Performance, I dont know which one yet.

Thanks

Its fairly safe so long as you keep the meth content down to say 30% or so. Too much can all to often eat holes in your pistons. Straight water is great for lowering EGT's and is actually very good for your truck. I'm not a big fan of using windshield washer fluid, if you're going to use meth, buy it straight from a race shop and mix your own. Snow also makes good kits. If your long term goal is big power, I'd skip it for now and save up for headstud install.

That is what I was figuring. Maybe I should do the studs and get them out of the way. Anyone know of any good places I can get them done in MD????

true, however if the correct mixture is used like the boost juice you will never have any piston problems. i would say if your just looking for a small boost in performance and a little lower egts the Snow stage 1 would be fine for you

Eric at IDP could do it, that is if he could find the time.
