I run it, have been for about two years and 70,000 miles. I would recomend the Cooling Mist kit over Snows...

You will not see a 200 degree drop in EGT's, thats great for selling kits but not true. More in the range of 100-150 in MAX EGT.

Max HP gain I ever saw with it, running 40% meth was 40hp. Now with the new motor going in I will up size the water injectors and try and get something extra out of it.

im running a snow stage 2 kit. Not sure how much the egt's dropped. on a 0-100+ mph run it used to peg the 1600* pyro, now it is under 1500* running blue washer fluid. Also the blue fluid gives a nice boost in power.

What snows kit did you have? Did you install the check valve down stream of the pump? What pressure did you set it to come on?

Water is very safe, IF and only if you install it correctly and adjust it corectly...

FYI, I have that same pic, only from under the truck... But mine was because of a bad injector (hybrids...)

I have a snows stage 2 I did not know anything about the check valve between the tank and the pump . I parked my truck on a hill about 4 gallons of water and meth dumped into my engine ,so when I went to start it I bent a rod.My truck has now been down for 8 months because of all this .It is still looking like the pic

Note to all... You HAVE TO have a electric valve between the PUMP and the INJECTORS.

8 months??? What the heck for? Mine has been down for 7 weeks and I hope to get it back by friday.

i just bought a stainless steel check valve from mcmaster.com. it takes 3.x psi to crack it open, i figured it is good enough to keep water from seeping by. So far so good.

Of course if it does hydralock it will send the crank south before bending a rod lol
