You will have a few that will swear by water/meth and some that will say stay away, I am one of the later. Meth causes a spike in cylinder pressure since it is an uncontrolled fuel in the air charge, not injected at the time that the injectors fire. Custom tuning should accompany the system if you are looking for power. If you are just running water to cool the EGT's then tuning is not necessary. Plus is becomes another thing to remember to turn on when you want to race that ricer.....It is good for anywhere from 0-60hp.

I personally think injectors are the way to go. The can be detuned or turned up. They are always there and they don't run out of juice. Tuning plays a big role as it should with injectables.

As fare a injectors messing up your engine, any performance mod can damage your engine.

Single shots are designed to run on one HPOP. If you are looking at big split shot, you will need to run bigger oil. Stage 2 single shots should get you at or over(by a little) 400hp.

Big oil would be a good increase in itself. I gained over 30hp just by adding big oil.

I'd like to get a h20 kit. I would stick to just using water when I had to to manage EGT's if I decided I wanted to tow in the extreme setting, or doing a little hot roddin. I wouldn't rely on it for a HP gainer though.

Incorrect there buddy... I have been sitting next to Tadd when CP testing was done with water injection... Up to 30% meth there is no mesurable spike in pressures. Above 30% and it starts to go up. At 50% it starts to get ugly...

Water injection is very reliable, free to fill and will allow me to tow on a 400hp setting without seeing 1200 egt's up about any grade. Is it a power mod... no, at 40% meth I get about 60hp with stage 3 hybrids... But its a great tow mod, with a little kick added.

I do agree to some extent, if your wanting more HP, get some Stage 2 or Hybrid injectors... Single shots...

Skip it... You will just run into more issues with HPOP pressures dropping off... Go with a single shot conversion if you go that route, but in the long run, dont go cheap on injectors.

Definately injectors 1st and then water and meth but as CSIPSD said mix it 30% or less and you can definately tell a difference and still be in the safe zone.

Since the OP asked about this as a power adder, I would assume that 40-50% meth would be used. Thank you for confirming that the CP gets ugly with 50% meth.:thumb:

Looks like you just agreed with me even after you said I was incorrect. :doh:
