water/meth injection

I just installed a 4 inch turbo back exhaust,ts 6 pos programmer & cold air induction on my 96250,was wondering about the water injection, is it worth it and if so what system do you guys think is best

I would upgrade the intercooler instead. There can be some bad side effects to the water/meth method. The intercooler method is also better, performance-wise.

water meth will get you more power and its a better bang for the buck. Intercooler is nice cause its always there and you never have to refill it.

Can you feel a power gain when it clicks on? Also what % are you running and how loud is the pump

yes pump is quiet and my pump is turned up all the way im not sure what psi and ive ran as much as 70/30 but never more than that and you can definitely feel the power increase but it also depends on what mods you have with it

I'd be afraid to run water/meth. I mean, you're injecting water into the engine, won't that cause rust or anything? Or is it such a little amount it burns up before it can so anything?
