snow performance...

Just curious who out there is running any of the Snow Performance water/meth systems?? Any good or bad input about them would be appreciated... I am looking at getting the MPG Max Stage 3 system, with the 7 gallon reservoir... It shows power gains from 70-100 hp, 1-3 mpg increase, and about 200-300 lower egt's... The system with the 7 gallon tank and shipping is about $1,100.00... Wondering if it is worth it or not?? Also how hard is the install for a NON mechanic Snow says it recommends using their own mixture of fluid, but I have heard you can make your own pretty easily... ANY input would be greatly appreciated...Thanks guys...

I have the Snow Stage II Kit and it has worked great have had it on my 7.3 for about 1.5 years now and no problems. I ran there BOOST Juice at 1st but is WAY to expensive by the time you pay the shipping on theirs plus cost of it ends up being around 12 bucks a gallon I get my meth from a buddy of mine that makes BIO for $3.00 a gallon and only do a 40% mix b/c any thing over that you don't get much if any cooling from it and over 40% cylinder pressure gets high due to the high amount of meth running this amount you will see around a 40-50 hp gain from what I've seen by others that have dynoed with it

I've heard that before also but you have to find the cheaper stuff that doesn't have alot of detergents in it and 40-50% meth I couldn't find any like that here in Florida heard the stuff they sell up North has more meth so it doesn't freeze

The install wasn't bad took we a couple hours to do
