Title says it all! I've never used a water meth kit and I would like to know which kits you guys prefer and why? Ease of instillation? Price? Durability? Thanks for the help!

I know the AEM kit has multiple fail safes that will decrease boost if there is a problem, I will be getting this one. I think you can setup failsafes with any water/meth kit though. The Snow performance and Devil's Own are good kits I've seen alot of people use.

aem is expensive its like 5-6 hundred dollars plus taxes. snow performance i can get for 272 plus taxes
I just priced aem at a little over 3 with 1 gal tank and a little over 4 with 5 gal tank

They're all pretty much the same. AEM has a fail safe and I believe snow does too...but this only matters if your ECU can utilize the feature and run different maps (which I believe most do). Personally, I would go with the system that you can get for the cheapest that has the best nozzle selection. There's a YouTube video floating around that has some good IAT data with different nozzle combos on a D16 JRSC setup.

In my opinion a good fail safe system is essential. If you need the system, it will detonate and destroy your engine if it fails. If a system failure does not result in detonation, you did not need it anyway.

You need good corrosion resistant components, especially the pump.

You need need seals that resist alcohol.

You need a good reliable anti siphon valve to avoid risk of hydraulic lock when parked at certain angles on slopes.

In my opinion a large variety of nozzles is not that much of an issue as you can buy a collection of small ones and drill them any size you want. I have even done it with a small tapered reamer to get the flow just right.
