Affect of Water Injection, Engine Coolant Temperatures

To members that own any manufacturer / model light duty diesel pickup:

Has anyone researched the affect the use of a water/methanol injection system, injecting water only, has on engine coolant temperatures?


1. Do any members that run a water/methanol injection system inject 100% water?

2. If so, what is the impact on engine coolant temperatures?


Thanks in advance!

stevebos,

You would have to reaaaaaly spray some water to see temp drops in engine coolant. What you will see is an avergae of 70 HP and an EGT drop of up to 200 degrees. Folks that are after EGT drop only use straight water as well. We sell the Snow systems and they have been really popular with those that are at the edge of performane because of high EGT's and the heavy towing folks use it as it really helps on EGT's on mountains!
