water meth and propane

Ok,

This is going to sound stupid but, I want to run water meth and propane on my truck. I know 6.4 and the water meth isn't a good idea, the meth won't be on the all the time thinking when higher rpm range. So what can i expect.

I am running the 275 tune with DPF love it want the 310 and going with Suncoast rebuild...

Help a brother out.

Oh since i am on a roll thinking about putting the Icon Leveling kit and running 35 with stock rims,

here is the question, Can i store ar 35" tire under the bed where my OE is sitting,

Had a few cold ones and just wanting some ideas before i spend the money and find out I **** the bed.

Thanks

NOOOOO!!!!!!!! Do not run Propane man. That is probably the best way to blow up a diesel engine. I have also read that methanol with cause vale stem wear on these trucks. Don't mess around with that stuff. If your looking for a power adder, do nitrous. You will just need to consider head studs and a wastegate before you use a lot of it. If your looking for better fuel mileage, don't mess with any of it. Water injection might help a little, but none of it will really help. Proprane is a definite negative, and the methanol is very iffy!

Elm302, he most likely meant to say DPF delete.....he would have ran in to problems the very first day if he was running the 275 and 310 with the DPF on.

I wouldn't put propane on anything. EGT's tend to sky rocket with the propane.
