Water/Meth injection with Spartan tunes?

Is there anyone running this? Snow Performance claims 70 HP and 250 degrees cooler EGTs. Do they work? Are they worth it?

I think it is worth it. I cannot give an accurate drop in EGT, but I have run 13.50's at 101 MPH with the 275 tune and the Snow kit.

There are people that have ran 13.3 and 13.2 without it though with just the 275 tune, intake, and exhaust. Pahrump's big ole truck ran a 13.3 with the 275 tune. I don't think you will see 70 more horsepower out of the kit. I have heard numerous times that those advertisements are really high.

Just use the water for an EGT drop.

Water injection worth every penny in my book.

I'll let you know the difference around Christmas. I'll be back home and will probably head up and do a run or two w/out and a run or two w/ meth. I tried last time but my pump was dead

How safe is it to run this water meth injection? 50/50 on a stock engine?
I am looking in to the kit now.

Josh from RCD (I think) said that it's causing a lot of valve stem wear on trucks, so i'd stay away from it. I'll use it since i've already purchased it, but with that in mind I wouldn't make the purchase again. Go with nitrous instead

I wouldnt waste your time with the kit. It does not give 70hp thats for sure. I had mine on for about a week and it didnt really do anything. It ended up being a weed sprayer for my pasture.
