water/meth?

benn reading for the last 2 days about those, I definitely want one, my question is is there a big difference between the kit out there? The CoolingMist one is really attractive $ wise... should I stay away from it, and is the Snow stage 2 the only way to go? Thx in advance

Re: water/meth?

snow Stage 3, just no need for the MPG max part ( saves like $200 ). Get the big tank ( 7 gallon ). Thats what I run and love it. It cools my EGT on long mountain grades here.

Re: water/meth?

6.0 is NOT a good motor for meth. with adding even more pressure in the cylinder you just asking for the head gasket to pop. If you put studs on your motor then the next thing I would worry about is the valves, meth tears them up. if your going to do it i really would run anything stronger than washer fluid.

Some of the cheapo washer fluid is over 20% meth. You really cant know how much unless its on the bottle. I've looked and never saw any that show the %.

Re: water/meth?

The Coolingmist systems are great kits. I'll be out of the office all weekend but if you have any questions about them, you can reach me on my cell.

Thanks,
Kenny

Re: water/meth?

I have the Snow MPG kit and it is awesome!! I only run water and for cooling purposes. It has dropped temps 150 or so. I have (1) medium nozzle and (1) larger nozzle and the 7 gallon tank can be a little small for longer trips so I am having a 34 gallon custom tank built. It just happens to work out to that size for the area I am putting it in. A 10 gallon or larger tank is better IMHO.. Also the straps that hold the plastic 7 gallon tank in are a joke!!

Re: water/meth?

I have had Snow stage 3 on my 04 for three years now with no problems. For the most part I run straight water and sometimes washer fluid. I didn't put it on for extra power just for cooling. No studs, original gaskets, I am sure the coolant filter has helped with the original gaskets. I have a 16 gallon tank that seems to be just about right for longer trips in the mountains. I can generally make it out and back with needing to refill.
