Im running water only through my coolingmist water/meth set up. It helps egts tremendously.

Id look into the riff raff frx personally. I didn't see gauges on your list...maybe you should do that. Or a monitor like the edge cts.....

oops sorry yes i have guages boost egts and trans temp. I am the type of guy that likes to do things once like I feel like there is no point in doing injectors with out doing the head studs valve springs and push-rods all at the same time. Better route to do the fuel system and hpop stuff first then do turbo injectors and head studs. Turbo wise I am thinking of the holset h2e.
