the only risk is if its mixed to heavy , dont want to go over 50% mixture , the kit has a power switch to cut it on, then boost controls when the pump comes on and how much it sprays

It will work to the upfitter switches......but your going to need to drill for the LED, the switch will arm the system, but the LED will tell you when it starts to spray

I mounted mine on the dash close to all my DashDaq and pillar pods......as far as the upfitter switch, whichever one you want.......I didn't use that simply because I wanted it to be in short arms reach without me moving to much in the cab.......

It all depends......same of the kits are rated and based on HP......I went with stage 2 instead of stage 3 because I just wanted something simple.......stage 2 runs off boost where as stage 3 has a LED monitor and runs off boost and EGTs, just more drilling, wiring, and work for the same result IMO

I did it more for the lower EGT's.....Snow performance claims 70HP with the 50/50 mix and the biggest nozzles. You can feel it in the seat of your pants, thats for sure. As for the EGT's I see at least a 350F drop at WOT and the pump is at full power

I've been using the 50/50 mix, but I only use it at WOT when I'm racing or haulin a heavy load. The truck doesn't get hot quick enough to use the meth for passing or getting on the highway.......I doubt its 70HP, but never the less like NOS, if you use it smartly you'll be fine
