install is super easy... the only hard part is deciding where u want to mount your tank and pump... that was easy for me though since I am going to mount the 7 gallon tank and pump in my toolbox

been running it for about 100k. I use it for lower egts while towing. I only run water in the summer and windshild wasker in the winter so the lines don't freeze. I always shut it down 10-15 miles from stopping so I don't have any rusting issues.

I'll be installing my kit here shortly as well while I'm doing other upgrades. It is a well proven technology.

Power will depend on your W/M ratio, injector size, pump psi, and user adjustment.

Reliability?? On what, your motor or the W/M system (name brand)?

I have been reading about the snow performance tow max, it comes with the 7 gal. tank and the controller. On the site it says it provides water/meth across the whole range of the powerband. Im not looking to get a ton of power out of the water/meth, im looking mostly to cool EGT's with the least about of wear on the engine. I like the style of controller it has because it has all the fail safes integrated into it. and i like the fill it up and forget about it part as well.
If it helps ill be dropping my truck of at IPR for studs, capped cooler and remote oil cooler/coolant filter, shortly after that i plan on a MTW hybrid.
Ill also be getting new tunes to reflect all of the mods as well.

So is this something that you only use during hard useage such as towing or is their a turned down mode type for daily driveing? Sorry if thats a stupid question...just not sure how often Id use it.

you can use any water meth system on a daily driven truck that doesn't tow. I don't tow, but i have snow's stage II kit and it's never had any issues. Just might take a little bit to find it's sweet spot where you want it coming on at.
