I'm pretty sure that it was the guys at River City Diesel that were tearing down engines for some reason or another and found that the valve stems were being eroded in engines running water/meth.

I would like the water-meth injection just for the fact that it will significantly lower my EGT's, but the power gain would be nice too.

Thats the first thought that came to my mind when I heard it. Nitrous on the other hand....

What if its not the water-meth thats bad, it could be that it needs a certain mixture or possibly needs to be combined with other aftermarket products in order for it to be safe for the motor, because I've heard that its the safest power enhancement that can be added to the diesels.

I'll let some one else do the research on that one. I like my truck too much to eff it up.

Water and methanol are both very corrosive to steel and iron. The high temp of an engine is only going to accelerate the corrosive activity. I'm going to wait until there are some longterm studies.
