Which would you do?

In my head I have sorta alotted 3K for the truck. I am thinking about Cobb's spartan package with a Snow Stage 3 kit, but I have also tossed the idea of getting a sperco instead... I'm alil worried about EGT's seeing what weavers truck can do with the 275 and the hot texas heat on the rise. What do you guys think? I probly wouldn't mess much with meth, just water..atleast till that little bug tells me to push it alil more.

i guess neither is an option too and save up / take care of some little things like coolant filter, CCV, billet side vents and wait for fuel...

Would not waste money on the water/meth, the EGTs are not bad..you can get spikes here and there, but most the time they are very manageable..nothing at all to worry about.

Running the V3 I can barely hit 1500 on a fairly steep hill with 37's and over 2000pnds in the box.
I havent run it yet in really warm weather yet either so I am not sure how much of a difference that will make.

I thought Josh said we hit like 1700 on a run to about 75 the other day... probly 70's out. But maybe he, or I was wrong.
