Stage 3 water/meth kit

I can get a stage 3 water/meth kit, barely used for next to nothing.

The question is, how safe is this to run and it it worth it? and what kind of power can i expect?

I didnt plan on running any drugs for awhile but its a great price.

Run straight water and its great for your truck!

If you have to run meth, I would recommend methanol you can buy from just about any race shop and keep the mix to 20% or so. Others have run upwards of 50/50 and seen some power increase but I'm not a fan of it. I think most people would agree you can get around 40 rwhp out of meth. At least that's what I've seen on other peoples dyno runs.

I'm a big fan of water (only) injection. Its actually a good thing for your truck.

buy it... you'll need it later for cooling.

I run straight distilled water from the store.

the water meth kits are awesome, im running it on mine. im running straight water and it keeps me about 300+ degrees cooler but im running a modified stage 3 im helping snow performance with. If you plan on hauling allot or running it a little hard its great. you can run Lp with it on straight water if you want as well. when i had the Superchips Lp system on i did not see higher egt's then 1150 or 1200 at the manifold, but in fairness i have allot of supporting mods.

Good luck
