new IC or h20/meth?

Question, what do you guys think will give me more bang for the buck? A new water methanol system such as the Snow set up or a new Intercooler set up?

Performance wise my truck is 98% stock (besides the exhaust and a 03 turbo and the Atlas 40 ficm tune). Being stock is fine for me for now. Im very happy with the performance and love the truck as it runs. But the EGT's can run right up to 1500+ very easy on a wot run.
The cost of these 2 systems are roughly the same. I like the Snow Performance because -
1 I have yet to hear any body complain about it.
2. it seems to be the most plug and play. I screw around getting oil field equipment to operate all day I don't have the want to do it on my days off.
3. the cool factor is off the charts( I think so anyway). And the thought of being able to dial it up for performance later on,thats iceing on the cake.
Down side- buying the w/w fluid.

The intercooler- Im looking at the Banks set up. I know banks is not well like around here but for the price plus you get the intake Im not sure you can beat it. But reeley Im not looking to get into a pizzin match over brands.
What I like about the intercooler- bolt it on walk away. I like that, nothing to dial in.
2. no running out of juice in the middle of the Rockies....
3. once you buy it you don't have to keep feeding it.

What do you guys think? Whats gonna kick the EGT monster out of the way?

If you're only looking to drop EGT's when you're running it hard, I would go with a Snow kit

98% for the egt drop but the boost in MPG's would not be a bad thing either.

I think the EGT drop would be greater with water meth then the intercooler, although the intercooler would be a one time purchase instead of constantly buying fluid

i would do the intercooler. its long term, and u dont have to worry with the pump goin bad , fittins leaking , or any of that BS.

for EGTs 1500 is not too bad, my truck under normal accelleration will get up to 1200. at the track i see 1700+, but its for only a few seconds

That does sound normal for egt, on a max effort tune anyway.

Why not get an intake manifold instead and get more bang for your buck?

I'd go with the W/M kit. Yes, the intercooler doesn't need fed, but the stock intercooler is fairly efficient as well. The W/M kit will give you better MPG's, lower EGT's, and a boost in power as well. It can be tailored to suit your needs too. I myself will probably just run it off the washer fluid tank and run 50/50. IIRC the stock washer fluid tank holds like a gallon and a half of fluid or something, and that will last you a decent amount of time.
