Zex Nitrous Kit vs Snow Performance Water/Meth Kit

I am thinking of doing one of these systems so just wondering other's opinions on them. I know I would have to have my dp tuner chip reburnt for the nitrous but still would like to know which option would be best for performance on the weekends:smoke ... So just looking for some pros and cons of each and suggests.

Thanks

I think nitrous would be your best "bang for the buck".

Agreed, if your in it just for the HP and TQ, then nitrous would be the best thing. Water/Meth injection to me is more of a towing/hauling item to help lower EGT's on the grades, or in high HP conditions (ie sled pullers and what not).

yea i am looking for hp and tq but also reliability and you always hear stories from each(water/meth and nitrous). I dont have head studs so not sure if nitrous would be too hard on my truck or not. also what shot of nitrous do guys usually run safely

If your looking for power, Nos...

If your wanting a little power and cooler EGT's, something you can use every day... Go with water injection...


But not Snows, look at www.coolingmist.com better kits, better parts, and cheaper.

Water/Meth isn't gonna go boom and blow a piston thru your turbo.

Running 40% meth with one 675 and one 375 injectors netted me 40hp everytime... You wont see much more then that without bigger injectors and more fuel...

I am running the Snows Kit, but its a POS and I have gone thru 4 controlers and Snows doesnt give two ****s about anyone after the sale is done...
