Water/Methanol systems??

Anybody ran a water/methanol system on the 6.4 on top of the dpf delete? Or is it even worth the money of putting this in a daily driver?

I have had a cool mist system on mine for a while not for power but for towing. I usually tow with the 275 tune and it gets hot fast on hills. I set the system to work on exhaust temp on two stages. Don't know if there is much power gain with it.

We sell quite a few of them for DPF deleted 6.4L trucks. The Snow Stage II or MPG Max kits will add efficiency as well as power, not to mention how clean your engine is when using it.

Are there any hazards to running water meth on the engine like wear on the valves or valve stems?

i have heard that before. So it really does clean your engine? Can you just run water without meth for the cleaning benefits?

I was told never to run tap water only distilled water due to contaminates like dirt in it.
I run blue windsheild washer fluid.Seems to work fine and doesn't freeze in winter also cheep.

Any real feedback on the MPG max setup? I would be interested in running that kit if enough people reported some positive results with it.

Yes, quite a few people run them that way.
