Intake air cooling

I'm making this thread to see what you guys prefer and think is better to use on these engines. What I am inquiring about is intercooling or water meth. Which do you guys prefer? I'm really looking into watermeth as I feel it is superior compared just intercooling. So does anybody have experience with either or insight on this. Also with the water meth how does it act in cold weather I would think that the meth mixture would prevent it from freezing but just a thought

Thanks guys

I prefer intercooling, no fluid refill required, works all the time every time, water meth is nice and adds power and cools efficiently but requires refills when you run out

I've had both and while the water/meth worked great it did require a lot of refills and took up a good amount of space for the tank. it is surprising how much fluid you can use on any kind of pull.
the intercooler is more of a install and forget it kind of thing.
as for the freezing, yes the meth will prevent that as long as your mixture is right for the temp.
