It's kind of a hand in hand situation.
Think of the Water/Meth kit as an after-cooler. You're getting air 'post intercooler', but you still have enough heat generated by the engines to cause the water/meth molecules to separate. And when that does - it absorbs some of the heat, effectively providing the cooler air charge. Cooler/denser air will always give you a gain on HP/TQ (to a point).
Kind of a neat science behind it all!
