Increase the power and efficiency of your 1982-2000 GM 2500HD/3500HD with Water-Methanol Systems at XDP. Water-Methanol systems require heat and boost in order to instantly vaporize the water into steam, thus preventing potential damage from water being injected into the engine. Water-Methanol Systems operate by injecting a high-pressure mixture of water and methanol into the intake of the engine. Water-Methanol cannot simply be sprayed at any time, there must be a certain level of boost and heat already built up before it can be injected. Typically blended at a 50/50 ratio Water-Methanol provides maximum cooling and gains in power and efficiency. Water-Methanol Systems cannot operate in low RPM and low boost situations as the water will not vaporize into steam.
Water-Methanol Systems function by using water to cool the intake and exhaust temps and increase the efficiency of combustion. Water-Methanol Systems benefit the engine by cooling the intake and exhaust air temps as well as providing more efficient combustion from the added methanol. Systems manufactured by Snow Performance and Banks Power are some of the more popular Water-Methanol kits available for your diesel truck. Shop XDP to search all the Water-Methanol Systems, Water-Methanol Plumbing, and Water-Methanol Reservoirs available for your truck. Water-Methanol mixtures can be purchased already blended and ready to pour in, or it is a common practice to make your own mixture using water and windshield washer fluid that contains methanol. Due to the nature of how Water-Methanol works, the systems will not be very beneficial for vehicles that are driven lightly or simply cruise on the freeway.
