The USA Made Snow Performance MPG MAX Water-Methanol Injection Kit is the only water-methanol injection system proven to increase fuel economy in all load states – empty or while towing. You'll also lower those EGTs by 100 to as much as 350 degrees. You'll be able to crank up the boost and enjoy more horsepower. Your engine will run cleaner.
The Snow Performance MPG Max controller commands two stages of water-methanol injection that proportionally adjust according to boost pressure and EGTs. By proportionally adjusting water-methanol injection according to boost/EGTs the Snow Performance kit offers an unparalleled delivery of water-methanol for all towing applications and results in the largest increases in MPG and cooling.
The Snow Performance MPG Max Digital controller features built in modes (Power/Towing) allow the user to seamlessly switch between two programs for daily driven use (Power Mode) and while the vehicle is towing (Tow Mode). The net effect is smooth power in all engine load states with no combustion quench resulting in a Fuel Economy Increase of 1-3 MPG, HP increase 65+, and reduced EGTs (100-350 F). The MPG-MAX diesel water injection kit offers true plug & play functionality that will not affect the electronics or the warranty of the vehicle. Complete with heads up adjustable LCD screen displaying boost, EGT temps, percentage of injection, and second stage activation for accurate monitoring and on the fly adjust-ability! Additionally, this kit leaves no signature / footprint on the vehicle computer.
Everything you need for a simple installation, including instructions come with the kit. Two injection nozzles are also included. The part number for this system is 500 and it fits 1996-2007 Dodge Ram (5.9 Cummins Diesel Models).

1. What are the benefits of Water/Methanol injection?
Boost Cooler Benefits:
1. Low cost - where else can you get up to 70-100HP?
2. Greatly reduced EGTs - Decreases of 250 degrees F are common using a 50/50 water/methanol mix. Increased EGTs are an engine killer in today's performance diesel world.
3. Efficiency - Fuel economy increase - increase your fuel economy up to 10%-15% (1-3 mpg).
4. Greatly increased air charge densities - 3-5 psi boost increases are common with liquid intercooling.
5.Allows you the ability to greatly increase boost on turbos and superchargers (if you have one).
6. Ideal for heavy loads and towing!
2. If I don't have a turbo or supercharger, can the Boost Cooler be applied to naturally aspirated and or nitrous engines?
YES! 1.Naturally aspirated/high compression engines:
In this application, water/methanol injection allows the use of pump fuel in all but the most extreme situations which effects tremendous cost savings as well as horsepower increases due to air density increase and realized timing potential. The system is activated by a boost referenced switch so that injection takes place only during high engine loads when needed.
2. Why is Water/Methanol injection so effective on Diesels?
Unlike gasoline engines, the power in a turbo diesel is largely a function of fuel. The problem with continually adding fuel is that you create an overfueling condition and reach a point where the exhaust gas temperatures become prohibitive (over 1500 degrees F). A Snow Performance Methanol Injection kit, using a 50/50 water/methanol mix will decrease EGT's approximately 200-300 degrees F while increasing power 70-100HP safe and effectively.
Power is increased through:
A. Air charge cooling - Water/methanol will lower air charge temps over 200 degrees F in this application. Low air temps makes denser air charge which provides more molecules of oxygen for combustion.
B. Combustion conditioning - the methanol acts as a combustion catalyst as well as a cooling agent. Water increase torque and power output through "the steam engine" effect.
3. Is this technology new with Turbo Diesel?
Water/methanol injection has been used extensively for years in high performance truck/tractor pullers. With the elevated boost levels required for peak power, water/methanol is a common means of cooling the intake charge and reducing exhaust gas temps. Also, truckers have used water injection for years to increase fuel mileage.
Where else can you get this kind of power with cooler EGT's, reduced emissions, and more fuel economy?
In most instances our standard 2 quart reservoir works well to provide the required amount of fluid. We have seen that a 2 quart reservoir provides enough fluid for a 400-500 hp car to make 12-15 full throttle quarter mile passes.
For those looking to get more range out of their system, they can tap into their factory windshield washer reservoir and use it to hold water/methanol. This is a good option because most washer reservoirs have a large capacity (normally at least a gallon) plus they're already methanol resistant (washer fluid has methanol in it). Also, the washer reservoir is already under the hood so it doesn't require having to add another bulky item into the engine bay.
