Has anyone installed water/meth yet?

Looking into doing this but can't find anything on it for the 6.7 guys. So has or does anyone have it installed on their truck yet if so what brand? Do you like it? Benefits? Pros cons any help appreciated . I had a devils own on my cummins and loved it just wondering if it's worth it for the 6.7 or not

No one at all has installed water/meth yet?? I don't want to be the first lol but looking at snow performance kit after talking with them today. Now my biggest concern is how much I'm going to actually use? Talked with a guy and he said towing heavy he usually uses 2-5 gallons in about 250 miles. That seems like an awful lot but he did say he has seen mpg gains of 2mpg towing and about 1 mpg empty. I'm not to concerned about mileage as I am keeping the egts cooler

Check out the last issue of Diesel Power. They have an article about Banks Power's kit. They claim up to 120hp gain!

I saw that in the diesel power but I'm not a fan of banks products to me they are overpriced and your paying for a name and I also have had really bad experiences with their tuners in a couple of my old trucks . I am surprised no one is running this setup yet though but thanks for the response

+2 for Snow.

I got their MPG MAX system on order, ordered last week when they were $100 off, so couldn't pass that up. Was worried about finding a spot for the 7 gallon tank, cause its 18" high, but I am getting a toolbox that is 23" high on the inside, so the reservoir and pump are going in there. The reps said they have a lot of customers that use their toolbox specifically for that. Their customer service has been great so far as well.

you get this installed yet ??? wanting to do it but want to see if its really worth the extra money. Talked with another guy yesterday that had it and he has the snow kit and hates it. he said he only gets about 300 miles out of the 7 gallon tank and has to refill it every fill up and says he did notice a little bit of power and slight I mean slight decrease in egts

From the research I did, it really depends on how you drive. If you are hammering it down and going full throttle, you aren't going going to see any gains, and your EGTs will remain high.

No I haven't installed it yet, I have the kit sitting in my garage, I am waiting for my toolbox to be built, WeatherGuard, said it would be 2.5-3 weeks, been about a week since I ordered it. But I am also thinking about getting a CAI to put the injectors in, that way I will have one already when I delete the DPF down the road.

Yeah I read that too . So when I talked to this guy I asked him that as well and he said from his experience he noticed that it used the most when he was towing and since he mainly uses the truck to tow his camper around the U.S. He got it to cool the egts but really didn't see a huge benefit . I'm already deleted and have the cai so maybe it will be different with a deleted truck as well??
