Witch one is the best to use for a 6.4 to gain maximum performance for drag race+ maximum reliability for daily using. water methanol keep exhaust cool but does it add a lot of power??? what brand??? let me know what you guy think

I see you are now hooked on modding.

Snow Performance seem to be a popular brand. The water cools the intake charge and the methanol acts as a fuel. hp increases can be as high as 70hp.

nitrous is the one I would consider the safest for lower cyl PSI and da most HP gain.

just don't use propane lol its pointless
well...its not Pointless....but on the OPs application i think he would yield the most gains out of nitrous if just planning on racing or water if he wants it for DD on the street....propane is a great mod but with all the fuel yall are putting out on the spartan high hp tunes its not nec needed...although it would gain at least 50 rwhp if not more from propane, propane only cools the egts down under part throttle, crusing, towing, etc. but under wot it makes the egts a little warmer (since its a fuel) but pane also gets you better mpgs, throttle response, etc....

so IMO its not Pointless but for the OPs truck id recommend one of the others...:thumbsup good luck with what you decide to go with!!:happymugs

what i meant by pointless is that you can get the same (performance, didn't think of fuel economy :bang) or better results from something as simple as water/meth

i've heard of gains of 100+ with water/meth, and i've heard gains of around 50rwhp with JUST water, its like adding a second intercooler

Nitrous all the way.
We put Slednecks truck on the Dyno and it picked up 25% RWHP running the Spartan 275 with a Zex 200HP kit running a .088 jet

It lowered EGT's while making huge #'s

Sorry we are still waiting on the Dyno Charts. Once I get them I will Post

just set the water to come on at a certain EGT temp and the meth to come on at a certain boost so that you're not injecting water/meth at idle

there is an anti-corrosion additive in methanol. Rust shouldnt be a problem. Just make sure you get you methanol from a bulk retailer with high volume. Winter blend washer fluid works well too.
