Again not much... Water injection should be used to cool egt's. If your looking for HP gains, then look elsewhere.

I know its probably too late to do any good, but Banks has the Water-Methanol injection for the old IDI's and it gains you between 75-175hp. So 5-10hp I call BS. But it is a new system.

This is with all due respect to the Diesel Bomber up there. Probably at the time there wasn't much, but the new diesel technology has come a long way even since 2011.

They did an article on this in Diesel Power magazine on a turbo 6.9 and picked up about 30hp/50ft-lbs running a 50/50 mix.

There's also a video displaying how the banks system works compared to others, and it maintains steady through the RPM ranges too, was a good watch
