The water lowers your EGTs. This is the primary function, as the F250 is mainly a tow rig and not a cruiser. The methanol is primarily in there for winter use as it keeps the water from freezing, altho it is technically a fuel so you can gain HP from it, if theres enough of it in there.
The combo of 4.10s & 37s is nice for cruising, and I have the power to tow the bronco pretty well, but keeping my exhaust & cylinder temps manageable is somewhat challenging when towing in the mountains. This takes care of that. From the #s im seeing driving on the freeway to/from work, this system works better than an intercooler, which is actually kind of a PITA to install in these old trucks.
