Agree, I'm not injecting as much or as high pressure (only 210psi) as you are currently, but I have been injecting various amounts and mixtures for many years, in either 2 or 3 locations, the highest I have injected is 7 gallons/hour of 50/50 while experimenting and I can assure the nay sayers it does not increase EGT on a ZD30. For the past several years I have only used 10% meth just to keep my tank water in good condition, this is due to meth costs up here. When I do long trips I dont carry meth but will add a %age of vinegar which I pick up at general stores out in the bush along the way. Currently injecting pre turbo and post turbo (throttle body). EGT's fine, none of my wm injecting has ever been problematic.
This depends on how much water and how much meth.Water/Meth has been proven to increase EGT's
Water meth injection is only suitable for engines that only occasionally need high power and then for brief periods of time. Large trucks need high power frequently for long periods of time.I'm yet to see a factory water/meth setup in a truck.
If you think anywhere it would be beneficial it would be in a 600hp signature Cummins hauling 62.5t or more up big inclines.

I'm not Gale Banks and don't profess to be in his league, but my many years of 'first hand' experience with WM doesn't agree with that, then again I've never gone over the safety margin of 50/50, and remember a dyno doesn't always tell the whole story.I don't have any experience with water/meth, as stated I don't like the idea of injecting water into a diesel.
So, I look at those in the industry who do. Gale Banks uses water/meth and has tested extensively. He has video where he has proven that egt's rise with its use. He also built the race truck which I still think holds numerous records that uses massive amounts of water/meth.
I'm a relative noob in WMI having only started this year, but I have done a fair amount of reading before venturing into it.I'm not a fan of injecting water into a diesel. Water/Meth has been proven to increase EGT's.
Yes but in the real world it does. Most people experience high EGT while trying to maintain speed going up an incline etc. I can't explain it as good as others can with all their engineering/technical words but with the way meth alone works when injected and the way it helps in the combustion process it means you don't need to use the same amount of throttle to maintain the same speed which in turn reduces EGT. Then throw in the benefits of the water for all that cooling and it's a deadset no brainier for me.The myth i took from the video was trying to control egts's when they reach high levels with w/m is counter productive.
