Water Meth or Intercooler?

I am wanting to lower EGT's while towing, etc. Which is the better solution, water meth or Turbonetics intercooler upgrade?

I have the Spartan tuner, AFE intake and a 5" exhaust.

Will either upgrade affect the Spartan?

Intercooler will always be there, you don't have to worry about refilling the water/meth tank, in the short run, depending on what meth kit you get it will be cheaper, but with the cost of boost juice you'll make up the difference

"Same thing."

That it is. I will probably get it from Extreme Diesel Performance. I think I might need new boots as well.
