190 cc injectors, 03 turbo, head studs, EGR delete, fuel system should get you pretty close, with some spray you should be there.

You can run it all the time, but you have to refill it.

Personally I wouldn't run it for anything other then cooling application's.

Its always there. I guess you could put it on a toggle switch if you wanted to. Its not ALWAYS there, but injectors and a turbo arent ALWAYS there either. The Meth kit will referance boost on the stage 2 kit and boost and EGT's on the stage 3 kit. It will start flowing water meth as those numbers climb. You could also do an Industrial Injection Hybrid turbo with your stock injectors and some good tuning...that will get you very close as well. If you add 190cc injectors to the Hybrid turbo you will be slightly over 500 probably closer to 515. Lots of options, and lots of ways to get you there.

That would be just water then for cooling, and it will still add a little hp. If you go with water meth you will want to get some new tunes. This way they can cut back the timing a little bit.

like maintain said, get a 03 turbo but there hard to find and a lil expensive. if you want, i can have the guy who built my truck punch out your stock injectors. it gives around 25 hp. i think he can go bigger but you would need a better fuel system.
