For reliabilty, a full egr delete with a wastegate, and headstuds. I put a intercooler in my truck only because my stock one got a hole in it, and I didn't notice much of a difference, maybe a SLIGHT drop in egts while towing, but not $1000 worth.

Thanks for the info on the intercooler I was about to buy one! I am running the 300 tune and need to cool down my egt's and mgp's they run up quick, will the egr/delete w/wastegate help that? I know the studs will allow for more mgp. Thanks

i was looking into a snow kit also to lower egts, but someone on here said they wouldnt buy it if they had to do it over again.

Did they said they would never buy water/meth kit again or just snow performance. Ive been thinking about doing it for hauling cows to pasture, but some of them are pretty expensive.

They just said for the money they wouldnt do a water meth kit, they didnt see the performance they wanted.

i've heard that the spearco intercooler will drop EGTs up to 250*

i've heard pretty good things about it. i've never run it myself, but i think it would be something to look into..

Well I'd say if you're looking at water/meth strictly for more HP then you're better off going with nitrous, but if you're looking for lower EGT and better reliabilty a progressive boost controlled water meth with a back up max EGT sensor is the way to go.
