I agree, but from my experience (however limited) even two of Cooling Mists bigger nozzles were not enough to cool off my truck when pushed hard on an uphill climb. Care to expand on that statement? I'm looking to learn all I can.

What I'm wondering about now is how are cylinder pressures effected when running water? I have studs, but I'm thinking about doing another re-torque again.

Fuel/water requirements are basically proportional. The more fuel you're running, the more water you need. How you get the water with multiple pumps/nozzles/sizes, whatever, is purely subjective as long as the combo you end up running does the trick for your particular rig.

Trying to get too much water with too big nozzles and/or not enough pump is the main problem most people run into. Done wrong, it gets ugly pretty quick.

on my truck I was running 4 of the largest nozzles I could find and the egt probe in the manifold was reading 1300 at wot sled pulling. I moved the probe to the space between 5 and 6 cylinder and it was reading over 1600 with water full on. the last time I had the head off I machined 5-5 gph nozzles into the bottom of the intake on the head. now I see 1250 to 1300 but the temperature is close to the same across the cylinders. that is with flux 3.5 and a silver bullet. and I usually spray just under a quart of water in 300 foot sled pulling.

I've been looking at this set-up. I just do weekend towing, no sled-pulling or racing.

http://www.alcohol-injection.com/wat...mmins-207.html

Not a bad price, $420.
