I have a friend that just became a Dr Performance dealer, so he can get me a really good deal on a water/meth kit. What are your guys experience with it?

from what i've been told if ur guna run it on a 6leaker you need to pretty much leave the meth out of the equation, use the water for cooling egt's while towing, or use 70-30 water/meth for mileage, but don't go for a performance gain with it, to much of a gamble

I love my water. Cools EGT's like nobody's business. Very easy to install. Im running 2 nozzles into my intercooler tube and have been very happy with the outcome.

There not too bad. KT Performance

Kenny has some of the best prices out there. I purchased the simplest kit and a 7 gallon tank. Was just under $400. Alot of money, but water is free.... So it wont cost me anymore money no matter how much I use it.

can you feel a power difference? or were you just looking to cool off the egt's? i could def use it too cool egt's while towing but if im guna spend 400$ i want somthin that will aid in mpg's, power, cooling

Power difference... No. Doesn't really register on my SOTP meter. LOL

I wanted it for cooling EGT's so I could use my power longer if that makes any sense. I was having to lift off the pedal when the pyro hit 1400. Now, no lifting. I stay in it as long as I want.

I haven't towed really heavy with it yet, but im sure it will do what I expect it to while pulling a heavy trailer.

It wont help out my MPG's cause I dont make enough boost at cruising speeds to turn it on, nor do I need it on while cruising.

Both Nozzles come on @ 12 psi and dont go off till the boost gets back under 12.

Kinda weird to watch the pyro go backwards sometimes when Im still on the throttle....

Sooo easy to install. And I fit the pump and tank in one end of my tool box. Ill take some pics next time I think about it.

Remember, Meth is timing that cant be controlled.

Tim (dalpilot) runs 155cc's (IIRC) on his 6oh with a stock turbo and water and still tows with it. He was having a hard time controlling EGT's while towing an empty trailer without water. Installed the water, now he swears he would never tow without it again.

CoolingMist system (CMGS) is also setup to be controlled not only by Boost, but also by EGTs, and can be configured to only come on when the parameters you set are reached for both.:bowfast:
