Water/Meth kit Pros and Cons

So I have been tossing the idea of this around. What is the best kit for your buck? and what are the pros and cons of the kit? Im more interested in the mileage and cooler EGT's when towing big loads. If you have the kit please throw your 2 cents in I would like to know as much info as i can about this before I make a purchase.

Thanks

We have ran the Snow kits and always had great luck with them. Very high quality parts/components and good tech dept of you have any questions. They make a pretty big difference on the 6.4L, hopefully some of our customers who have bought them will chime in. Much cooler EGTs, better mileage, and cleaner engine.

Ive been looking into the Snow performance kits... not sure which stage i want to do... most likely for me it will be the economy one but they offer a bunch of difference options for everything you do from performance to towing to economy... I have a lot of plus about this company and they set ups, sounds like everyone is using them and they seem to have a good product for a reasonable price

Well when i talked to a few of the local Diesel shops they were saying that the water methane is probably the safest of the 3 which is (nitrous, propane and water/ meth) for add power and economy which out damaging the motor

I am also curious about this. I was thinking stage 2. Would you guys just run the blue windshield washer fluid?

Well, here is a bump to a thread that I'm interested in. I just entered the wonderful world of H&S (Very Happy). However, the EGT's scare the **** out of me. I started a thread about those issues, so feel free to take a peak. The bottom line is my truck will hit high egt's when I pound on it....and I just don't like it. I would look into the economy option too.

Feedback?

Thanks,
Turbo Kidd

You think you should have studs with a economy meth kit? I would think if its gonna lower egt's then you'd be safer
